From the little I have seen of the world of crowd funding (and which has put me off crowd funding), is that it appears that perhaps as much effort goes into the marketing of the product, in order to raise funds, as the actual final product itself.

The projects that appear to do well are those that have a lot of effort given to the videos and promotional material/webpages.

So there may be quite a lot to learn on that front depending on how good you are at marketing.
