Every once in a while, we’re taken by surprise when a seemingly unlikely product or service offering goes viral in a matter of moments on Kickstarter. While all these stories are different, each tells us one thing for certain: it doesn’t matter what you’re selling as long as it’s a quality item and appears attractive on the Kickstarter platform — presentation and abundance of information are everything when it comes to a Kickstarter campaign. Here are three Kickstarter success stories to invigorate the entrepreneur in you.

E3, the premier tradeshow for interactive entertainment, is coming to the Los Angeles Convention Center June 14-16. One of the bigger brands that will be showcasing is WWE. "As the best-selling fighting game brand in history, WWE always looks forward to E3 and hearing from some of the biggest industry heavyweights, as well as the most innovative new startups," says Vice President of Interactive Media Ed Kiang. "We’re excited to think about all the new ways that a lifestyle brand with global reach like WWE can bring it all together and enhance the overall experience using our massive reach and portfolio of licensed products."

See some of these exciting licensed products below in this week's Merchandise Monday.

My birthday was a few months ago, but I look forward to it every year. Not only because of the celebrations with friends, but because of all the free items and rewards I'm offered from some of my most frequented retailers. From a free drink at Starbucks to the $40 gift card at Express for being an A-List member, I can really rack up the goods in the first couple weeks of January. Plus, the better the deal and the more time I have to redeem the deal, the more likely I am to shop at that retailer for the birthday bonus -- and maybe even purchase more. 

My feelings are shared by many U.S. consumers. In Alliance Data's Birthday Benefits Survey, results found that 40 percent of consumers are more likely to shop with brands that recognize their birthday. While it might seem silly to be excited that a retailer remembered your birthday -- especially with the zillions of Facebook posts, texts and calls you get that day -- it just adds that extra special touch to it.

However, with multiple locations come multiple challenges associated with having one head govern multiple bodies. If done correctly, keeping all of these parts moving smoothly can save money, generate increased revenue and expand your brand.
