Yes.
Some projects do get enough momentum to get a lot of strangers on board, but that still takes the leg work to get the news out.

I sense you might ask: 'then why should I use such a platform?'
Because with 'all or nothing' projects the backers know they get their money back when the campaign fails.
Because people trust known platforms more and because you don't have to figure out how to get money.
With S & S you also get a ton of knowledge to make it a succes.
