Auroras update #3

Posted by Niles Heckman (Creator)

Hey backers,

We're half way to our goal with a little over half the month to go! This may be a bit of a photo finish as I'm definitely realizing how difficult crowd funding is. For any folks thinking of ever doing a future crowdsourcing campaign, I would share that it's an astronomical amount of work and far from easy.

The Auroras Kickstarter video has been viewed over 1100 times and only about 50 people have donated as of this point. Since this is my first campaign I have no idea if that's a bad ratio, but I'm suspecting it's normal. I now totally understand why KQED & PBS and other public services beg and beg and beg for money during pledge drives because supposedly only a small percentage of listeners and viewers ever donate.

Please continue to share our Kickstarter page on your social networks, and I will be eternally grateful.

Here are a couple more nice articles written up about us:

Cheerio, Niles
