After A LOT of hard work, pushing, pushing, pushing we have managed to go from Zero, no Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram etc, to building a community on all those platforms and has raised 153% of our target goal with 1 day to go!

I have to say, it has been a long hard 30 days with plenty of ups and downs.
We have learned a huge amount about running a successful campaign the hard way.

There are lots of pitfalls, scammers, and downright crooks who promise the earth and run, BUT there are also many decent people and businesses out there that do what they say they'll do too.

Don't rely on family and friends - we didn't as we didn't want to put them under emotional pressure to support us when they probably rather wouldn't. I think once you go that route you start to lose a little respect from those nearest and dearest to you.

Finally, now the KickStarter campaign is soon coming to an end we are moving it over to Indiegogo's On Demand platform to raise further funds via their marketplace.
To get onto this, you have to have run a successful campaign on Indiegogo or Kickstarter which means you have to get past your goal and if they think you are worthy enough they'll invite you to join On Demand. I think you can also apply once your campaign is done.

Onwards and upwards!!

Thanks!
It's been a roller coaster and hard work for sure but you don't get something for nothing.
157% now so it would be awesome to finish up at 160%.
Thanks also to you for you help too!

InDemand is not proving so successful, in many ways it is dividing what we are already doing on our own website which is already taking pre-orders. Not sure Indiegogo is the right platform for our niche but we will see it through.
