The overall scores showed the importance of having created a previous project was not too high, but still important to some with a score of 285, so let’s dive a little deeper.

Not important13.4%
Doesn’t matter40.6%
Important34%
Very important10.2%

The numbers show that nearly 45% of people view a creator’s history as important with 40% not minding either way. Unfortunately, this isn’t something a first time creator can really change and it’s up to them, as a creator, to find a way to re-assure potential backers of their ability to deliver a great project.

One positive take is only 10% of people see your history as very important so I believe it is possible to win over at least 34% of backers through good presentation, growing a community and building your reputation prior to launch.
