Hello backers and happy new year!
We are back from the holiday break and we are starting 2014 full speed. There is plenty happening with the business right now but this update will be about shipping address updates and Nikon build progress.
I want to personally thank everyone who backed this project. I know we have been through the ringer and back but in the end this is a great success. The product is out to the majority of the backers and everyone loves their Quikdraws. Taking a idea to market is a time intensive and expensive experience. Executing this project has taught me so much about business, marketing, finance, VC funding, business systems, manufacturing, time management, shipping, packaging, distribution, etc... If you would like to get an MBA my suggestion is to start a kickstart project instead. The homework is much more meaningful.
There are 120 Nikon units in route. I will receive them sometime next week. I will be fulfilling the higher dollar amount rewards first.
If you have not received your Canon units and/or you have not received an email from me to update your shipping address please message me via kickstarter.com with either your shipping address OR a new email so I can send you the address update email and link.
There was a major hic-up over christmas with the address update email. It was not updating existing contacts, it was creating new contacts. I was getting notification that someone updated their address then when I searched for their name 2 contacts appeared. Only a few packages were shipped to the incorrect addresses. I have merged over 150 contact records and fixed the issue with the address update web form. Please do not click on any old links from older emails to update your address The email and link received after Dec 26 is known good and will work properly. .
It is very important that when you receive an address update email that you enter you current shipping address (even if it hasn’t changed) and click the submit (send me my Quikdraw) button. I have no other way to verify your address for shipping. The web form must be submitted for you to receive your reward. I know this is not amazon but it is the system we have in place now.
