“The Langauge that Gets People to Give; Phrases that predict Success on Kickstarter

In this recent paper presented at the 17th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing, Researchers at Georgia Tech have identified language trends that can help predict success in Kickstarter startups.

After studying over 45,000 Kickstarter campaigns, the team led by Assistant Professor Eric Gilbert and doctoral candidate Tanushree Mitra have identified dozens of phrases that can help guarantee Kickstarter success, including several phrases shown to be part of unsuccessful campaigns across the board.
