So my submission was not a fit for the search I had entered here on EN and it got the dreaded red 'x'. I'm down but not out yet....I still want to see how far this new product of mine is going to go.
That said I am now setting up a crowdfunding campaign for my product.
I have gone through some of the blog posts on EN and it seems Crowdfunding is not as easy to reach the goal. Some products I have seen look brilliant with brilliant campaign pages yet they did not reach their goals (like the Stem Light). Yet crowdfunding looks appealing because the product is seen by the end user directly and they decide whether they wish to pledge or not, unlike licensing where only a handful of people make the decision on behalf of everyone else. Also crowdfunding has a quicker turn around time than looking for licensing.
On the other hand licensing is a much lighter burden. Once a product is licensed the hassle of production etc is not on the inventor. I can stick to inventing and let business people take my inventions to the masses.
I want to try crowdfunding but I would like some help from any of the awesome bunch here at EN to give an honest critique of my campaign before I launch (I have found that family and friends are good for ego boosting but sometimes they see things through rose tinted glasses), j0ust so I can fine tune it.
I am setting up a campaign at Indiegogo and I can preview my campaign before I launch it. Maybe I can post a link here and get a bit of feedback? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
