51% and 18 Days to Go
Our first 12 days we rocketed up to 50%, which is uncommon, so thank you guys so much for pledging in the first week and bringing us to high ground. Because of this, we are coushined a little bit from the midway slog.
Yesterday was the slowest day for the campaign yet, but we still ended up with 3 pledges bumping us up 1%. This slow day wasn't unexpected. Kickstarter campaigns generally go through a slog about halfway through, often with days of no activity at all. Lucky for us, far we've been blessed enough not to have a day without pledges.
But in order to beat the slog, I've set some goals. Over the next five days, my goal is simple. I'm aiming for at least a 1% rise a day. That's about $30 pledged a day, or one $25 paperback reward and one $5 ebook reward. In order to beat this slog, I've been trying some experiments.
The first was a facebook image which I shared out on my network, and you can find here (please like and share): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=629750123702175&set=a.197929016884290.55040.100000015798831&type=1
The second is a new video on the Kickstarter page. The original video has been watched 80 times but only completed a little more than 20% of the time, so I made a shorter, more concise video. We'll see if it works after a few days.
Over the last week I was featured all over the place. Here are some links to the lasted batch.
