Congrats! We're slumbering along and I think one of the reasons is we didn't do enough marketing prep as you mentioned. We're currently working out a plan to cancel and relaunch in a couple months in order to build up the support base to try and get a better run at the first day.

Thanks for the advice. My goal is as low as possible, and I'm telling lots of friends and family, including people at my college (its an art school).

I'd also definitely recommend putting a $1 reward so friends and family can become a backer without feeling they have to contribute a lot.
