Risks and challenges
Shipping: Currently our main challenge in bringing this game to the masses is finding a reliable and cost effective way to deliver our product to our customers. Due to the durability, size and weight of Pocket Passer, finding a willing shipping partner prepared to offer an acceptable standard rate has already proven difficult. With increased volume of units ordered there is a greater possibility of securing an advantageous shipping contract that will allow us to reduce this large cost to deliver Pocket Passer nationwide quickly and efficiently, yet this is nowhere near guaranteed. Affordable shipping has proved to be one of the greatest challenges we face in bringing this game to market.
Securing Proper Colors: Due to our current manufacturing process and costs, we have only been able to order a limited selection of colors for the game boards. As great as it would be to customize every game and tailor to the specific requests of the customers, it is easier said than done to accomplish this. We have put effort into selecting generic colors that can accommodate several different teams and we will be choosing additional colors based on popular demand from kickstarter contributors. We foresee a difficult selection process is ahead of us to determine which colors we will choose for this next round of inventory as we will not be able to cater to every variety of team colors. Yet.
Proper Manufacturing: We are working with reputable manufacturers who have years of experience delivering quality products, specifically in the wood manufacturing field. However, there will no doubt be some surprises along the way, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal engineering knowledge and external expertise with our goal of making the best possible product for Pocket Passer fans. It may prove difficult to guarantee that every set is produced without error or fault or that the most recent round of modifications will be up to standard also taking into account any delay in production from a shortage of materials. For this reason the Pocket Passer team will be working directly with the manufacturer on the next round of inventory, inspect the production line and make sure that any and all adjustments to the production process will be implemented as we continually fine tune the product in order to deliver a polished product we are proud to deliver to our customers.
As sturdy and durable as this game is, we are still throwing footballs really hard at an immobile object. We are committed to making sure this game is lasting, holds up against the elements and we are willing to do all that we can to deliver a product that will stand up against even the strongest arm.
Constant Refinement of the Product: The more hands we get this in the more chances we will have for feedback so that we can continue to perfect Pocket Passer. This is an ongoing process and we definitely appreciate your feedback and support!
Branding: In order to accomplish our goal of taking over the tailgating industry, we need help getting the Pocket Passer brand established as the undisputed product out there. We will need to blanket the market with our game to establish a dominant presence in the tailgating scene. Without a solid introduction to the market at the early phase of a new product, it’s possible for a trend to simply fade before it becomes successful. We want to break that barrier and become the number one tailgating product in the country.
Imitators: As with any new product there is always the risk that imitators will brazenly attempt to steal, imitate and emulate the market leader and rush to market with a lower quality product hoping they can succle off the success of those who have put years of heart, passion, struggle and resources into the realization of a new concept. As an added layer of protection against these wannabes, Pocket Passer has been issued a utility patent from the United States Patent Office. Although this level of protection aids this game against future copycats, there is no guarantee that a knockoff product will enter the market. For this reason it is imperative that Pocket Passer position itself as the defacto product and claim market dominance as quickly and as publicly as possible.
