You Kicked the Knit Out of It! Badges + Explaining Crowdfunding
Official Backer Badges
Hey, hey, hey, TKS backing community! We're about 8 days into our campaign and are already at 36% of our goal. This is encouraging, but we're hustling to keep the momentum going so we can hit the next marker: 40%. Interested in continuing to help spread the word about this project? We've created a couple of tools to make it easier.
ProductionFor's amazing in-house artist, Jeffrey has designed web badges for backers to display proudly on the interwebs.
The "I Kicked the Knit Out of It!" banners are sized to be Instagram and Facebook (see above) and blog/website sidebar (see below) friendly. If you're up for using one, just right-click and save, or drag and drop the image(s) to your desktop. Don't forget to link the images to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/theknitshow/the-knit-show-with-vickie-howell
Have you found yourself talking about this campaign (or others), and having to explain what it is exactly that we're doing? We on Team TKS have found that Kickstarter and the term "crowdfunding" aren't yet a part of everybody's household vernacular. Before getting people to back our show, it's helpful to give them a better understanding of what the heck crowdfunding is. Last weekend I went live on Facebook to do just that -- as well as preach how HUGE brands, bands, and films are using this method of funding, too. Please use the recorded version of that stream anytime you see a confused face at the mention of "Kickstarter." Let me explain it, so you don't have to. You can save that breath towards telling even more people about the series! ;-)
Thanks, everyone. Happy Wednesday!
