Lots of creators have approached us about getting messages from marketing or promotion services that promise backers. Bottom line, we think that for most projects, these services aren’t necessary. If you’re considering working with one of these services, make sure to research the following:
- Get details on the exact services that they provide. Are these things that you and your team could do on your own?
- Find out their track record. Look up reviews or talk to other creators that have used these services. Ask them what worked and what didn’t.
- If you feel that any of these services might be spamming you, please let us know by marking these messages as spam or by writing in to us directly.
- There are more tips on what to consider before working with a marketing service in this post, too.
