Week 1 Status Report
Week #1 is in the books and we currently stand at around $8,300, or 46% of our goal. That all sounds good on paper, but like many Kickstarter campaigns, we had a good early surge followed by a taper-down over the following few days
As you can see, we've made good progress, but if the slopes continue the way they are, we'll be riding the razor's edge all the way to the finish line. I don't know about you guys, but I might actually get some sleep one of these nights if that trend starts kicking upwards again.
So, what are we going to do to take this campaign to the next level?
Phase 1: Interviews
I've already done an interview with the guys over at furcast.fm which you can check out here: http://youtu.be/kOGAJynGZG0?t=1h45m
I also have another interview lined up with the good folks at http://www.akindvoice.org/ this Wednesday (3/16) at 7pm Eastern Time. Feel free to check them out!
Phase 2: Operation Texas Rain
A good friend of mine from overseas is going to be visiting me here in the states in a few days, and we'll be road-tripping between Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas. While we do so, I'll be plastering hundreds of stickers with this QR code across all the major cities of Texas:
If you're reading this message because you scanned one of those codes and want to know what the heck is going on... congratulations. The system works. Please back my campaign! I promise you'll love the book.
Phase 3: Profit?
The exact nature of Phase 3 depends on how well we do, but trust me, word of mouth is probably one of the most effective means of advertising. If you believe in this project and you want to get more cool stuff from our stretch goals, please, tell your friends about it. You never know, they might actually listen to you.
That's all for now folks! More fun updates to come soon! Thanks for supporting The Wayward Astronomer and keep fighting the good fight!
