Today is the one-year anniversary of our successful funding on Kickstarter. What a year it has been! We have sold product in 9 different countries, we have had articles written about us, we have been featured in many YouTube videos(as far away as Vietnam), we have come out with two new Veil styles since Kickstarter, we have launched our retail website, and we have done all of this with the support of the amazing Community built here through Kickstarter. To date, I am very proud to say that we have never had below a 5-star review. We have never had to issue a refund for quality or performance or for not meeting any type of expectations for our customers, by our products.
Guardian bee apparel is growing, and it is all because of you. The early supporters that took part in this Kickstarter and launched an idea into a company are the main ingredient to this success. So many of you have been constant cheerleaders and have continued support of this brand and we cannot thank you enough, you are our family!
It's always a challenge, but we are enjoying the growing pains(because who doesn't want to grow?). One of our biggest challenges is marketing, it is unbelievable how many beekeepers out there have still never heard of Guardian bee apparel. If you have the chance, share a post from our Facebook page or a YouTube review with your beekeeping friends. Mention Guardian bee apparel at bee club meetings, or even contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see if I can find a way to help support your local be Club.
I used to say that there is nothing more valuable than Word of Mouth. This experience has changed my perspective. The two most valuable things to a business is a successful crowdfunding launch by a wonderful community and Word of Mouth LOL. So please share your thoughts and opinions, our Facebook post, or videos made involving our product in groups that you may belong to, with friends, and with Clubs.
We have more Innovative products in mind and cannot wait to make them available, in the meantime I am reaching out and asking you to support us again and help spread the word. Joining our Facebook page is a great place to start. Feel free to message me through our website anytime just to say hello, I remember and appreciate each and everyone of you.
Happy anniversary community!
We love you guys!
