On January 3, 2017, at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, we will be launching the Kickstarter to fund our second album.
To help make this Kickstarter a success, we have one simple goal:
***Get as many people as possible to back us on the FIRST day of the campaign.***
Kickstarter is more likely to feature our project on their homepage if we get a large number of people backing us right out of the gate. And if we make it to the homepage, we'll get even more backers (and new fans!). This worked fantastically well for us in 2015, so we're hoping to replicate that success.
BUT WHAT IF I'M BROKE?
The total amount RAISED on the first day doesn't matter - just the total number of backers. So, yes, even $1 helps! Remember that you can change your pledge level any time between Jan. 3 and when the campaign ends Feb. 2, and your credit card won't be charged until after the campaign ends in February.
WHAT IF I WANT TO DO MORE TO HELP?
♥ ♥ ♥ You rock. You can help by spreading the word:
1. RSVP and invite your friends to our Day One Backers event on Facebook.
2. Tweet/Facebook post about how excited you are for our second album with our Official Campaign Hashtag, #MoreMaidens.
3. Ask your friends, individually, to back the campaign. People are more likely to give if asked personally!
4. Know someone with a podcast or blog that would be interested in us? Tell them! We'd love to spread the word through some new channels. They can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you have a blog or podcast, invite people to back us at www.misbehavinmaidens.com/kickstarter. Once the campaign launches, that link will point right to it.
I'M STILL CONFUSED. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO ON JANUARY 3?
We want you to go to our Kickstarter (link will be posted on launch day) and pledge at least $1 to back the campaign on January 3.
WAIT, WHAT IS KICKSTARTER?
Kickstarter is an online platform on which people can raise money for projects. The biggest thing setting Kickstarter apart from other fundraising platforms is that if we don't reach our initial goal ($5,000 for a full-length album), we get NOTHING. So it's very, very important that we hit that goal. Learn more about Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/about
