How does Kickstarter work?
First, here’s a simple explanation of kickstarter: https://www.rody.com/how-does-kickstarter-work/
As far as the ornaments go, I’m funding all the expenses of getting a large quantity of ornaments made, before I make them.
I’m doing that by offering “rewards” – or …. CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS! (or other fun stuff) if people give me the money to do the ornaments.
ESSENTIALLY, I am PRESELLING the products, at a DISCOUNT to people who are PAYING BEFORE THEY ARE MADE.
So, the people that take a chance, get a really good deal on them.
If i don’t reach $12,500, i get ZERO money, and nobody’s cc gets hit.
Kickstarter is how i started my whole dinnerware line. I raised $36000 at rodydishes.com
, that was three years ago.
SOOOOOO, if you want some Christmas ornaments, or platters, or dinnerware, or note cards, or A BIG THANK YOU ($1), then you pick that reward level and put your credit card in.
Crowdfunding is very social, so my very good friends are sharing and tweeting and doing all that stuff with rodychristmas.com
. yakking it up, so to speak.
My current Coastal Christmas Ornament Kickstarter is at rodychristmas.com.
My dinnerware project from December, 2013, “Dishes with Fishes” is at rodydishes.com
