In talking about Kickstarter and our mobile boutique, we’ve come across a few frequently asked questions. So I thought I would make a blog post of it!
- When will you be ready to open?
Well, our Kickstarter campaign will only run for 30 days, so we will know by April 1st at the latest if we succeeded in meeting our financial goal to buy the truck. Lars says June, I say August is a foreseeable Launch date. We can’t wait to get started revamping the truck and keeping you updated via instagram, facebook and this blog.
- What will be your first event?
We are planning a launch party when the truck is ready. With an open invitation to anyone who has been interested in our journey. After that, we will booking our calendar with home parties and festivals. (one of our pledge rewards is a VIP pass to said launch party)
- Why are you doing a Kickstarter?
We are campaigning for an amount to cover the truck and major renovations, after that we will cover the merchandise, insurance (auto & liability), permits and licensing. We feel that whether our kickstarter is successful or not, it has helped us TREMENDOUSLY in organizing our ideas and being REALISTIC. Doing this campaign is also building a lot more “buzz” about Go Go, than there would have been otherwise. Our business plan is organized and we’ve had a BLAST making videos to get you all involved, and that’s all thanks to Kickstarter. Sure, we could just ask family to “invest” in our idea, but it is important to us that no one puts anything into this project without absolute certainty that it will be completed. The beauty of Kickstarter is that, if we don’t raise the funds we need to get it going, no one is out a dime.
- Why should I pledge to your project?
You should pledge if you see value in what we’re doing. If you’re a parent who wants a place to shop for modern, natural goods for your kids in a fun atmosphere. If your a grandparent who knows you will have a place to go for the perfect gift every time. If you just want to see our silly little truck bopping (we may need hydraulics) around the streets. If you find value in supporting LOCAL business.
- How do I pledge to your project?
Kickstarter has the best, most concise video right here: How to pledge
I STRONGLY recommend watching this if you have any questions. It quickly breaks it all down for you, and they have their own FAQs.
- What if I want to pledge an amount that differs from the REWARD AMOUNTS you are offering?
You can pledge ANY AMOUNT you desire down to the penny. The rewards that your pledge amount qualifies you for will appear for your selection when you go to make the pledge. You can choose one or not, totally up to you!
