Rehashing the Final Week Campaign Strategy - Who Will You Get On Board Infidels?
235 Backers! $1800 to go. That means 90, count 'em, $20 pledges to go. It may seem like a lot, but considering we have 235 backers already, it's doable.
Bear with me here:
This is when it gets serious. Just wanted to give you who've already shown support so far a heads up that I will be asking (read: begging and pleading on my hands and knees) for each of you to convince one person (1!) in the next week to pledge $20 for their copy of the book. That's the best strategy I have left to raise money. I've found that 'sharing' and 'liking' on facebook has limited response compared to directly emailing one person at a time or informing them face to face about the merits of the project and telling them why you support it.
So take the weekend to think about who among your friends and family would like to read a funny yet sincere novel about teenage kids figuring it all out. Then Monday, go get 'em!
I'll send another reminder then. Thanks a million. This is a team effort and I can't thank you enough for your support so far. Just wait til you read the book. You won't be disappointed.
