How to use Launch Party

There are only so many big moments in a project, and letting your backers be a part of them is the best way to get the most out of those moments. Launch Party provides a space to channel that big moment energy between the backer, the project creator, and other backers around a project launch.


What is Launch Party?

  • It's a publicly accessible pre-launch page that backers can hang out right before launch.
  • There's can be a countdown timer that let’s them know how close it is to launch.
  • Embed a live stream to interact with fans before launch time to share exciting updates.
  • Let backers get involved by highlighting polls, achievements, updates, and discussions.
  • Visitors can get themselves ready to pledge on day 1 by creating a BackerKit account.

Why you should consider hosting a Launch Party:

  • You are planning on streaming before or through their launch
  • You want to gather feedback pre-launch
  • You want to keep your product offerings under wraps until launch

You can publish your Launch Party page whenever you are ready to share your upcoming project with your audience. You can even host live streams a few weeks before launch day if you want to run multiple streams before you launch. We recommend hosting a live stream on your on launch day to get your backers ready to pledge the moment your project goes live.
