The Home Stretch - 2/3rds Funded but progress is slowing. How can you help? Plus, new letter videos!
Hello to our fabulous Backers!
With your amazing support we have crested $10,000 in funding (2/3rds of our goal) and almost 200 backers! While that is certainly a lot to celebrate, we have to be honest.. this is going to be close! If you take a look at this projection of our final funding level, we are coming up short of our $15,000 goal:
Now, keep calm everybody! This projection is based on our latest average daily pledge so there is still plenty of time to ramp things up. But... we need your help to make it happen! Successfully funded campaigns are the ones that earn extra support of existing backers in the final week. I hope we have earned yours and you are just as excited as us about holding a copy of B is for Bicycles in your hand!
What can you do to bring the project to full funding?
1. Share the link to the actual Kickstarter page so people can easily click the "Back this Project" button. We have heard from more than a few people that they didn't understand we were looking for pre-orders of the book. Cut and paste this into your messages: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/161457572/b-is-for-bicycles-bring-it-to-life
2. Post a comment on our Kickstarter page. This will help us come up higher in the ranking of projects and being in more "eyeballs"!
3. Share the Videos from our Facebook page with a quick note to encourage people to pre-order their book today. Everyday we are posting really fun videos of kids reading new letters of the book - Have you seen Q is for Quicksilver yet (my favorite)? If you aren't into the sharing, please type in a quick comment to help boost our traffic (the more likes and comments the higher the Facebook traffic).
What if you're not a Facebooker?
No problemo! We have now uploaded most of the fresh videos to our Kickstarter page so you can follow the action there too. See one you like? Let us know by throwing up a quick comment!
That's all for now - next up will be a preview of the Gift Card you'll receive if we fully fund - Great Stocking Stuffer!
