Last week, we posted an open call for you to share your tips for using LEGO CUUSOO on your own blogs, and promised a link in return. We received five posts from four LEGO CUUSOO fans, thanks everyone!
Each post contains some great tips and good opinions. Here we’ve picked out a highlight from each one as we share the link so you can go read each post. So, check out these fellow users’ tips and put them into practice on your projects:
- Huw Millington posted: “Think outside the box: Don’t bother submitting anything that’s remotely like what LEGO is already producing, or is likely to. Come up with something new.” Read Huw’s entire post on Brickset.
- GlenBricker provides an excellent analysis of “relative support,” or how your project ranks next to other projects. It also gives reassurance that you’re doing better than you might think if you only have a 50-250 supporters. Here’s Glen’s chart comparing supporter count to project ranking:
- In a separate post, Glen analyzes what is a realistic minifigure count for LEGO sets. This isn’t a tip we would have thought to share, but it’s totally true (wink wink, nudge nudge).
- Richard Hayes of BrickFanatics gives us a series of tips, and the one that sticks out to us is to build your idea (well) in bricks. The model and presentation in your cover photo is your best chance at attracting suppporters, so make both high quality if you want people to get on board.
- CUUSOO user Dralcax shares his list of tips, and we especially like #6, talking about price range. There is no set bottom or top price point for a CUUSOO project to be accepted, but you’ll have a better chance of us accepting your project if it is a reasonable size.
