Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges has been getting the individual parts of HeadHugger made. Because my goal has always been to have HeadHugger made in the USA, I had to source separate manufacturers for the custom-molded memory foam and the fitted fabric cover. I also had to design a custom compression case to make the pillow more user friendly for travel. As a result, the parts are not in a single production facility and must be assembled. In order to avoid delays in shipping rewards, I have researched production capability and quality prior to launching. Should any problems arise with production of any of the individual elements, I have built in a buffer of time in order to address them and still stay on schedule.
July/August/September 2018 - Kickstarter Campaign, finalizing production details, backer survey at close of campaign.
September/October/November 2018- Production of memory foam, pillow cover and compression case, assembly of final product.
December 2018 - Reward fulfillment/delivery begins. Fulfillment of rewards for Super Early Bird, Early Bird and Snooze Button backers will have priority (in that order).
January/February 2019 - Continuation of reward fulfillment/delivery.
