My Kickstarter Campaign for RIP Corey, My Friend Died and It Sucks! successfully funded on January 3, 2023!
74 backers pledged $11,850 (goal $11,700) December 3, 2022–January 3, 2023
What’s next? According to Kickstarter, my job is to:
- Finish the work I promised ~ yes, thank you, I would have done that anyway!
- Deliver the rewards
- Ship the books
- Email the ebooks
- Have one zoom meeting
- Obtain the desired memorial words from 14 backers who chose to have a line at the back of the book memorializing a loved one(s) who has died. Have illustrator and designer create that page and insert it
- Update backers regularly
- I’ve decided to update every 2-3 weeks via an update to the Kickstarter page that also gets emailed to the backers automatically
- I’m updating my Kickstarter page with the new illustrations & sketches, and videos, any information I think will keep backers excited and involved
I used Kickstarter for capital. I found a bunch of people who believe in me and my book. This new group of people are the beginning of my community, and the more I update them and collaborate with similar creators (illustrators, editors, designers, marketers), I think I’m building my brand… That’s something I never desired doing, but Corey is pushing me toward.
