that's pretty good idea to combine Kickstarter with media relation strategy.

Yes, using crowdsourcing sites to help promote your product or service makes sense. However, that needs to be just a component of your overal media relations plan. I have integrated a media relations strategy with a Kickstarter campaign. Made them work together and got more publicity than either alone.
