About

GetHooked was born from persistence, desire and yes a little or perhaps a lot of frustration, taking a dream and making it a reality.  Understanding that to take a hobby to the next level, regardless of the hobby, you need to Believe.  Believe in your heart and soul that you can accomplish your goals.  You need to Commit.  Commit 100% to achieving your goals, not 50%, 75% or even 95%, Commit 100%.  Last you need to execute and Act.  Act and repeat until you are as close to perfection as you can possibly be.  Adhere to these principles and we guarantee you will be successful at whatever it is you do.    

So besides our Products what makes us Different? Our GOTO Market strategy actually  aims to engage local communities, athletes and enthusiast by partnering with Family/Locally Owned Sporting establishments in 8 major markets initially.    Our uniqueness resides in our Partner Model in that while we are a privately held company we are creating a Corporate Sharing Dividend for our initial, yet be determined number, retail partners that help us achieve our success. We want to be more than a corporate brand, we want to engage locally and reach our retailers by giving them an ALL UPSIDE benefit for helping us and THEM succeed in their local markets.    We believe Private, Local Social Media Campaigns, in these markets will create a viral and loyal fan base for our quality products and our local retailers.

In addition to partnering with locally owned businesses we are searching for and will actively pursue partnerships with Community Youth Sport Organizations with the goal of driving dollars back into local communities that help us achieve brand awareness and penetration.

A note on your initial contributions:

All contribution will be used first and foremost to deliver the product/products purchased by your contributions. Money raised will also be used to establish our initial, major GOTO Markets, seed our 2015 product line and setup a robust delivery supply chain that will enable our company vision and brand to build market awareness in many markets.

FAQ (Question and Answers)

Q: What is Kickstarter?
A: Kickstarter is a site and business that helps young companies raise money through early yet to be released product sales. They provide a mechanism to build brand awareness and a method to channel Social Media and awareness to fund future companies of tomorrow.

Q: What is and how long is your Kickstarter Campaign?
A: Kickstarter uses the term Campaign to define the set amount of time required to raise the needed money as specified by our company goals. Some companies use a 30 day window, while others 60. The GetHooked campaign started at 45 days. As of this post we have 27 days left to raise all $6000.00 of our needed capital/money. 

Q: What is a pledge?
A: A pledge is how we reach our financial GOAL. It is similar to a product order when you are on a normal retail site. There are some exceptions in that some people pledge money to support a company but do not want any particular product. This happens when we have a supporter and believer in our company model and message but that person just does not need a product at that given time.

Q: What happens if you raise more than your $6,000.00 goal?
A: Well this would be amazing : ). There is no cap on the amount of funding we can raise. Sometimes successful project raise far more money than their specified Goal.

Q: How will you know what size and logo I want?
A: At the end of the campaign, if we are successful reaching our $6,000.00 goal, we will be in touch with everyone individually through the email addresses provided to get size and logo particulars.

Q: What will the money be used?
A: The money raised will be used first and foremost to deliver on all product orders. Any money left over will be used to build inventory, establish relationships with local retailers and partnerships with youth sports organizations. Money raised through Kickstarter orders will NOT be used for personal revenue, salaries or benefits of any kind.

Q What is your Kickstarter timeline?
A: Originally it was 45 days. We have a short 27 days remaining as of 12/01/2015

Q: If you don’t raise the desired amount will I still be charged and get my shirt?
A: If we do not raise the set $6,000.00 then nobody will be charged and the project will be suspended. At that time I can either launch a new project and new timeline or explore other options to raise brand awareness. Rest assured we will remember the support and be in touch personally.

Q: So why and where did you come up with $6,000.00?
A: $6,000.00 translates into around 300 or so actual products/shirts being ordered. For GetHooked this translates into a big enough number to 1 build an initial emerging supply chain and 2 enough brand performance to help build retail relationships both locally and through Social Media.

Q: If I want to increase my pledge amount, can I?
A: You can manage your pledge by revisiting the Kickstarter site and selecting Manage Pledge accordingly.

Q: I love the idea but do not need a Shirt, how can I still help?
A: You can pledge as little as a $1 to $5 as a quick way to show your support and inform everyone within your Social Media circle to visit the site and pledge if they can. (Face Book, Twitter, LinkedIn)

Q: What are Youth Sport Organization Partnerships?
A: Youth Sports Organizations will be targeted to establish a dynamic brand awareness partnership where we use community influence to drive traffic to our local retailers and our direct online storefront and in return will carve out a percentage of our corporate profits to go directly back into those organizations. Community is our focus and driving power behind our business model

Q: How will you give 15% of your Net Profits back to local retailers?
A: Just as with Youth Sport Organization Partnerships, local retailers that carry our brand of athletic and performance apparel will not have to compete with us directly like they do with other big brands. Local retailers will earn the requisite retail markup/profit from local sales in their stores but also participate in our 15% Corporate Sharing Dividend program on all products sold anywhere and through our direct online retail storefront. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. As our business grows the 15% grows so local retailers and their success is shared across all markets.

Q: Will you carry other products beside GetHooked branded apparel? A: Yes, in 2015 GetHooked plans to look across the athletic industry in search of high value apparel and gear that we will resell as a retailer. These items as stated will demonstrate HIGH Value given the sport and hobby and items that we believe are worthy of the GetHooked: Believe, Commit and Act brand.

Risks and challenges

So what are the Risk? The seed money provided by your contributions will undoubtedly and absolutely deliver all products as selected by your Contribution Level. There is Risk on GetHooked’s part as we work to establish a robust product line, supply chain and most importantly a brand of performance wear that can penetrate many markets and subsequently provide GetHooked with the capital to create, sustain and mature a young, growing company. In an economy that is fundamentally driving Wall Street wealth and not Main Street wealth, we are driven to use our innovation and persistence to create jobs while we at GetHooked pursue our vision and passion. We exist because of the you, not simply because you are an interested contributor and consumer, but because you believe the GetHooked brand resonates with your passion and our quality products and services are what you expect when you chose to spend hard earned dollars. We sincerely appreciate your interest in our success and wish the best for you and your own individual aspirations and dreams.
