We had a really good day of pledges yesterday, $355! Unfortunately this only brings us shy of 25% of funding. We have one full day and some change left for this project and it looks like for all intents and purposes we won't be able to hit our goal (unless we get $3,000 in one day).
Thanks for the support so far, especially the high roller donors. I had support from people I didn't know a month ago (or still don't know) and didn't get support from people I really expected to. This was my first Kickstarter, so I'm not going to let this stop BPG from happening. I've come up with a couple of alternate plans over the last week. Like the Facebook page for updates on BPG's status.
If by some unlikely stroke of luck we get the funding, I'll send all of you messages on when your rewards are coming in. In all honesty, with as many over $100 backers that I have, I'd have to rewrite the script the little bit to fit your likeness in (not too much though). Thanks for everything and hopefully things will pan out in the long run.
The kickstarter is not going as well as we originally planned. A lot of people who said they were going to pledge before the project began or throughout (and are still saying it in some cases) have not. This was supposed to build up a decent base for our campaign, which would give us an aura of legitimacy at the very least. Unfortunately, several people didn't come through early on or at all and now we are struggling to reach our goal.
We still have time left, so it isn't a 100% lost cause, but things are looking bleaker as time goes by and we aren't making any real progress on the total (especially since a couple of backers have pulled out). I've exhausted all of my options, local, online, local comic community, business cards and flyers in widely seen locations, borderline (or not borderline) spamming of facebook and message boards. We have currently 723 likes on the page, but only 17 backers. Which begs the question: how can that many people visit the page, like it, and say, 'Eh... no need to help out with even $1'?
Like our facebook page to stay up to date on BPG news if you wish, I may have a couple of ideas up may sleeve if the kickstarter doesn't reach it's goal. On a personal level I really needed this. Things are going a little south with my job job, and it's not something I want to do forever. This was at least something I could focus on and maybe make moderately successful. Maybe it will can be.
Share the page with your facebook friends and email contacts. Help us out and if we hit our funding, I'll throw something nice in it for you (once we hit our goal). Thanks again for the support so far. I greatly appreciate it.
