Update #23 Surveys done....now testing

Posted by tre manor (Creator)

Hey guys,

Well the surveys are finished..... I am never one to put off what can be done now. Besides I am ready to get all of this wrapped up so I can begin work on the next set of figures for the next Kickstarter. This next time around I would like to have as much of the sculpting done as possible BEFORE the campaign begins! I am going through the surveys making CERTAIN that everything is working properly. The survey that you get through kickstarter will ONLY have a link to the survey monkey online survey. This was the only way I could think of to make the survey cover all of the neccessities.

So when you receive the kickstarter survey in it there will only be a link a to the survey monkey survey. From there you will be able to select the exact rewards you want to apply your pledge towards and also add whatever you feel like you want more of as well. At the end of the survey you will be able to adjust the final total to cover any additions and then you will be asked to send the money to cover that difference direct to my Paypal address.

Thanks for your patience on this. and now I am on to the last bit of sculpting! Be lookign for updates on the WIPs starting tonight!

Cheers,

Tre'

Surveys

Posted by tre manor (Creator)

Guys I am sorry the surveys are taking so long. I have created QUITE an extensive bit of complication with the way the options switch in and out. Next time I am going to break them up into multiple pledge levels of equal dollar value. Sheesh! I think I will be done with them today though so keep a look out!

Also if my responses to emails or messages are slow it is only because I am hip deep in the surveys. I have not gone off to an island paradise or anything! ;o)

Cheers,

Tre'

Wow! That was one HELL of a ride!! At first I thought I would be lucky to make the $5,000.00 in 30 days, $10,000 if I was REALLY lucky. Those numbers came and went pretty quickly and suddenly my head was reeling with possibility. For the first time in a VERY long time I felt real hope. But by the end of the campaign I felt not only hope but very real CONFIDENCE. This will make a WORLD of difference in the present and future of RBG. 

 For years I have been barely breaking even every month or fallign far short and tryign desperately to make up the difference where ever I could. I had considered several times selling the business to more capable hands that could reach into deeper pockets to put RBG in the position to deliver in ways that I felt the fans and supporters deserved. There were times when I wondered even if anyone WOULD buy the business. But through every cold creeping darkness your enthusiasm was the daylight at the end of the tunnel that would not let me rest until I had hauled the treasure out of the Dungeon and back to town. Everytime I considered selling out I wondered how it would effect the collections you guys had built and if the product would remain true to the vision that I had built and that you guy shad invested so much into? Every time the same answer echoed back.......... Keep your hands on the wheel.

I may just be making toy soldiers but there is high level of emotion that is involved in this for me. I consider it the highest honour that there are people out there who buy my works to represent the heroes and demons of their imaginings. It is as if you offer a place for my visions in your dreams and nightmares and that is incredibly profound for me. Maybe I am reading too much into it but that is the way I feel about it. I don't want to go off all hokey and mushy as I am afraid my beard may fall out so I will just leave it at saying that this Kickstarter has invigorated me and it has humbled AND emboldened me at once. You will see big things from RBG from this. Dave will have his hands as full as I can make them with artwork, the rules and fluff will be a reality MUCH sooner than I had anticipated ( Beta version in October. ) as now I can afford to take a little time away from sculpting ( Not too much mind!! ) to get the bones ready to hand off to a very very capable set of hands ( no names yet as schedules must align ). This also means that the next kickstarter will be much more ready and refined from the " go ". Better marketing materials, better distribution ( as the margins will finally allow it! ), more retools. I really cannot imagine what kind of impact this will make on my life and my business btu I assure you that RBG is goign to continue to grow and to flourish!

Thank you all so very very much for the support, for the enthusiasm, for your efforts and your contributions. This is the start of big things and it is ALL because of YA'LL!!

Sincerely,

Tre' Manor
