FUNDED 25% on first day, NO new backers ever since...

Hi Everyone,

We are high school students who want to help improve our community. We identified the issue of back pain for students wearing backpacks, and wanted to create a device that can solve this problem.

Two weeks ago, we first launched our idea on Kickstarter and received a lot of feedback and support. However, we haven't been able to get any backers ever since.

Could you guys please give us some suggestions on how we can advertise and improve our Kickstarter page? Additional support would also be hugely appreciated! Thank you so much!!

Don't be demoralized, anything can happen.
Here are my comments.
I think you should re-edit your video. It's takes about 3 minutes of watching before really seeing and knowing what the product is. In my humble opinion, you edit it backward.
You should start by your product. Show it to us, inside-out.
Than talk about you, your values, etc. But I think you have to get people involve in the product and then, into you. If your product is good (I think it is) we'll want to know who's behind it and what are your values and where this idea came from, etc.

Also, (I backed your project btw) I think it's too expensive. 39$ CA for this product is too much (again, imho). I would put 15 or 20$, and your asking for twice that much money.

All in all, if you can try to re-edit your video, I think it'll help.

you may want to check other projects. they put 500+ hours b/w a team

your project maybe max 30.

time is more valuable than money today

only the best can win.

reamp your project by at least 10X!
