Spring DIY and Scubbly Last Call
Hi again all,
Congratulations to those of you who got your taxes done early this year.
I'm sending your next DIY snippet, keep an eye out for an email with the subject "Last Call for Scubbly Downloads." (mine arrived from newscpt16.de, yours may have a different numeral).
The "Last Call" email also contains your Spring DIY plans: our rocket cooker/canner/forge, the metric/EU appendix, plus notice of some changes to our Scubbly store.
Last Call for Regular Rewards
Our favorite online store provider at Scubbly.com has regrettably decided to close its doors.
If you still need your digital reward downloads (like the Fire Starter rewards, or anything else that was part of your original reward tiers), please let me know ASAP. Send me a message through Kickstarter, or email me at questions@ErnieAndErica.info.
(Don't worry about the few bonus items still to be released, they will come. We are currently working on the Rocket Kitchens and Mysterious Manifolds right now, thanks to a couple of gracious helpers!)
For ongoing sales, we are now offering our digital goods through the Permies.com digital marketplace. We have released a couple of new items, including the Rocket Canner. (You folks are getting this one free to your email inbox, so check there first!)
And we're talking to a couple good web designers and a local shipping outfit about improving our own website's digital store. Any tips?
Digital business people, I'd love your thoughts about selling digital goods. eBook store, event registration, any tips on handling physical goods like printed matter and DVDs? With the amount of off-grid work and travel that we do, I need a pretty good level of automation. And as a person who works for tax-funded emergency response, I suppose it would only be fair to pay my taxes up front instead of retroactively. (Scubbly just got a retroactive notice about EU VAT taxes, meaning I have over 5 years of back taxes coming due all at once at the same time as the store is in transition. Bleaggghhh.)
So in short, I'd love to chat with other small business folks about their favorite tools for cottage Internet-istry.
Parting note: I'm having a grand old time helping organize spring trainings for my volunteer fire fighter crew. It is really easy to get distracted from "regular" work when you have a chance to make a difference in life-or-death community-level resilience. (Or at least get a little better at saving folks' livelihoods and livestock.)
