"Kickstarter is a fine website for people and organizations who actually commit to the rewards they offer for your money. Jack Rudy Cocktail Company hasn't given any rewards out to the 68 backers of their $3,811 to help start their company. They have been reaping the benefits by being written up in magazines, newspapers, and being offered in some fancy cocktail bars. I'm sure their product is good but, they are the worst at business." I posted this to my facebook and I tagged Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., Eatocracy, Zester Daily, David Wondrich, Remedy Quarterly, Saveur magazine, Post Prohibition, and Home Speakeasy.
Please start making a big deal about this, they are reaping the benefits that we afforded them.
I also posted this on an image they have on their facebook page.
"Do you have a coupon code for your kickstarter supporters? We seem to be left out in the cold without a nice beverage. I know I donated $50 and was expecting all those wonderful things promised but, I will take just a bottle of tonic."
I started an investment company right out of high school with a couple of friends. Nothing major, we just bought stocks together to start with. Then we invested in local companies we believed in, and our company grew as a result of our shared passion and interest with those we invested in. That shared partnership has allowed me many new options in life. To me Kickstarter and this project was kind of the same thing.
With that said I also have done enough investment deals to know when I am being blowen off and the other side will not hold up their end of the deal. Seems you have more important things to do then remain in in conact with your supporters, and hold up your end of the bargin. 1 update in over 7 months. Not the effort your sales pitch for the project would have me to believe. Brooks, I have followed your progess on FB and see you are doing great things with Jack Ruby. You also know that several of my friend have be able to try you product (as I told them to when they traveled), but your supporters have not enjoyed the same.
I hope you enjoyed my $50 and at least got something good with it. Regards, Very Disappointed
