1/3 of the way there!
Just a quick update to say THANK YOU to all our supporters for making our first week on Kickstarter so incredible! We've already raised 1/3 of our goal and we've gotten quite a bit of buzz about the campaign already. GOOD added us to the top of their curated page on Kickstarter . So cool! We love them!
We're also making killer progress on the upgraded groups feature for NeighborGoods 2.0. We're going to start rolling out new stuff next week. We'll continue to make upgrades over the coming month. Once we're successful with this Kickstarter campaign, we'll be able to complete the location technology and finish the upgrade to fully launch NeighborGoods 2.0 in the beginning of April.
It's looking pretty good so far! With your support, we've had a great first week on Kickstarter. But now comes the hard part. The beginning and the end of fundraising campaigns are always the easiest. There is excitement and novelty in the beginning and the urgency propels activity at the end. Keeping momentum in the middle is the difficult part. For that, we need your help.
We hope you'll stay engaged with us and continue to spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, your blog - whatever platform you have. Even more effective are personal email lists, company mailing lists, etc. Reach out to the folks you know and encourage them to support NeighborGoods!
