About this project
What we are raising funds for?
We are raising funds to set up our online business. We need to pay for a hosting site, shipping company, shipping supplies, purchase Date-Crate items for the first month (possibly 2nd month also), marketing, and advertising.
You are investing in our business to change the way and frequency of date night. By investing $50 or more you will experience first-hand our creative date night ideas. You can expect your first Date-Crate to arrive in September!
How do we plan on pulling it off?
I'm a magician. Just kidding. I'm a teacher so if anyone can make stuff happen it's me! I've worked out the costs of running our business for the next 6-12 months and that's where the $2,700 comes in (That also takes into account fees for using this site lol). That takes into account all of our operational expenses. Unless the internet, like bacon, becomes a hot commodity and the prices skyrockets, we should be fine. We will continue to use new customers subscriptions to buy supplies for The Date-Crates and pay for shipping. In order to pull this off we need you! You are the missing piece of the puzzle. There is no doubt in my mind that with the support of some backers we can pull this off.
Risks and challenges
First off, there is relatively no risk at all. Unless for some reason both me and my helper die, then I will definitely put in my will to refund your money. We have no plans on dying anytime soon but rest assured if it did happen you will not be at a loss. I do like lilies if you'd like to make flower donation to my grave.
As for challenges, aren't there challenges and obstacles with everything? I could have a certain crate in mind and the company could stop producing them. I could go to the post office to deliver your packages and they could be close due to one of her 765 holidays a year they celebrate. I could be on my way to my laptop to check for orders and trip over the obstacle that I call my cat.
Please have the utmost confidence that I can conquer all of those obstacles and then some! I can order new boxes! I can come back the following day to the post office! I can step over my cat! This is life. Things come up. I'm determined to make this work so I will find a way.
Here are some possible/realistic problems that could occur:
An item that we were planning on purchasing is no longer available- Buy another one. We have many different suppliers to buy from. This might affect the cost but we will deal with it. We will do the same thing if the cost of an item rises. We have built in some wiggle room the purchase items. We don't think we will need to change the prices of our Date-Crates higher anytime soon. (Working on lowering the prices actually!)
Delay in shipping items to us for the Date-Crates - We have about a 3-4 week window for finding, buying, and receiving items for the Date-Crates. If for some reason we haven't received all the items in time we have a window for shipping. Instead of shipping on the 7th maybe we push back to shipping on the 10th or 12th of the month. We aim for packages to be received by the middle of the month. As long as we can meet that deadline we should be fine. If we can't, we can supplement the missing item for something else that we can receive in time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
