As a creator on Kickstarter during the now infamous Potato Salad Kickstarter, at first I was completely annoyed (as I’m sure many were) by the sheer news coverage and just the amount of money being thrown at a guy who was making potato salad. People were supporting a guy who was not even offering a valid reward! Infuriating!
But wait a minute, my public relations mind said. There are many people who, prior to this potato salad, had no idea what Kickstarter was. I know this because when I have explained to acquaintances and friends outside of my comic-con world that I launched a Kickstarter, they had no idea what I was referring to. Then I realized the magic. Potato salad has put Kickstarter in the forefront of the media, even more so now than before. And with that, came the idea for a quick video response and the headline: Better than potato salad – a comic-con journal Kickstarter.
We love Gen Con and had the most awesome show last year as first time exhibitors! This year we are excited to bring our Con*Quest Adventure Journals to the show for the very first time. So we created a Gen Con reward level on our Kickstarter! Pledge $30 or more and you get a journal and bag, for easy pick up at the show in our One Less Nemesis booth 1954! Due to popular demand, we added 100 more journals to this reward! Check it out and pledge if you can, we’d love for you to have a journal to capture every single moment of Gen Con, August 14-17 at the Indiana Convention Center!
If potato salad can raise $40k, surely a freakin awesome journal of comic-cons can get to $10k, right? RIGHT? Just think of the benefits of the Con*Quest Adventure Journal! I call just a few out in my video response…
Today marks a big event in the young history of our journals: we launched our Kickstarter campaign today! What is Kickstarter you might ask? It’s the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. With that said, we’re ready to move our journal business to the next level so we have inventory for the remaining 2014 cons we will be vending at plus online inventory as well.
We can use any and all support to keep this business going. We believe in it, we love it and we can’t wait to share it with all con-goers! Take a look at our campaign and share, support, like, tweet…whatever you can do, we appreciate!
