If my company / product can be launched out of my own pocket (300-500usd), should I still try and make a kickstarter?
I'm thinking it could help cover the first costs even if it fails, and would also provide a 'free ' market test. Maybe even get some people hyped up for what I want to sell.
Only downside. I can start it up as a one-man army for now. I don't have a good camera though, only a good microphone. I could contact one of my old friends who would be hyped to make a kickstarter / startup with me, I could just pay him a flat amount after profit shows (if it shows).
I can easily sell it as a casual thing made to help people, I'm young and don't look like shit.
It also feels a lot like it's yet another 'excuse' to further delay the product. I could easily start in a few weeks. But If I made a kickstarter I would have to wait for a good bit before I could 'release' what I make.
Anyone here with experience? Is it worth it?
