Kickstarter Tips and Advice

Submitting a product for review

Tips to help you plan and run a successful campaign.

by Helen » Thu Jul 13, 2017 5:34 pm

Any advice on how to submit a product for review on various tech sites etc.? I am finding that initial email enquiries often seem to get ignored, also there are a few places I can't even see how to submit a product (such as Tom's Guide). I know that there are services that will send out press releases for you, are there similar services that will help you submit items for review?

I think you're referring to "pitching". Yes I think most of the messages get ignored, but if you're enquiring rather than submitting then you woni't get any reply. Tom's Guide is really hard to get into and you need to connect with particular writers.

The first thing is to have a clear pitch and purpose. Then customise the pitch depending on the site, do your research before. Ideally connect with a specific writer, if not try the general submit email/contact page.

This guide I wrote might help:

Let me know if Hyperstarter can help any further.
