Campaign Ending / Thank You / Exciting AudioGlove Updates

Okay, so the Kickstarter community has spoken - they were not excited enough about a custom stand for the AudioGlove and our project will not get funded. However, all is not lost. In fact, quite the opposite. We launched our campaign with two mains goals: 

1) Test the market's interest in a stand for the AudioGlove. Conclusion: we ran a good test, and the results speak for themselves. We’ll move on.

2) Use Kickstarter to “relaunch” the AudioGlove and prepare it for its next stage of growth. The second goal was a resounding success! Here are the results of those efforts:

  • Amazing Press: We received coverage from many highly influential press outlets, which has led to an increase in website sales and world-wide exposure. Check out the press
  • Large-Quantity Orders from Retailers: Even though these orders were not made through our Kickstarter profile in time, we are now in the process of finalizing large volume orders directly from our first retail store customers. 
  • Connections to Investors and Strategic Partners: Access to new capital to grow our business has been invaluable. 

So what does this mean for the future of the AudioGlove? We are pleased to report that it is as bright as ever. We will begin the development of AudioGlove product extensions, including cases for the iPad, the iPhone 5 and other smartphone devices. You will also see improvements over the next few months to our existing products, as well as our marketing, branding, logo, and website. 

We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support. Every dollar pledged, word-of-mouth message, LIKE and Tweet has meant a lot to us and has led to these exciting developments. 

As a special thank you, all of our backers will receive a 50% discount off their next order from the AudioGlove website (a better deal than the discount you would have received through your pledge). Go ahead, pick up some new iPhone 4 cases now, or pre-order a case for the new iPhone 5 or the iPad.  Look for a follow-up email with a coupon code in the next few days. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments or potential sales leads.

Thank you, 

The AudioGlove Management Team

Teaming with Wicked Audio to Offer a New Reward Tier

Hello, 

We have some exciting updates to share: 

>> We have added a new reward tier!  Wicked Audio, one of the leading earbud and headphone companies, has teamed with AudioGlove to offer the “Total Audio Solution Pack”.  For a $40 pledge, backers will receive an AudioGlove AND a set of very cool Wicked Audio earbuds or headphones (total retail value over $60).  Perfect for those times when you need a “Total Audio Solution” to satisfy all your portable audio needs.  Act now, there are a limited number of these rewards available (see our profile FAQ for more info). 

>> We continue to get great press coverage and feedback from our backers. Check out these great posts:

  • GIGAOM: "...uses simple acoustics to boost sound ...and it clearly works." 
  • CNN: "...makes iPhones 20 percent louder, no tech involved." 
  • Comment from a Kickstarter Backer: "I've had an AudioGlove for many months now... I use Waze on my iPhone for navigation, and before AudioGlove, it could be hard to hear over the road noise.  Siri was impossible to use.  Now I don't even have to turn the volume all the way up and Waze and Siri can understand me..." 
We are 35% to our goal with 26 days left!  We are happy with our progress, however, we still need your help spreading the word by giving our Facebook page a LIKE, sharing our press posts, etc. 

Thank you for your support. 

Falco and JP
