Took some time to reflect, plan,, and find alibis. Thought the crowd funder do better then it did. Taking the time to understand why not had me do some soul searching on why not and steps to take.
What I leaned
- There are lot of projects looking to get money one needs to stand out to attract interest , the project I had did not
- Branding issues, Chicago Outfit Blood in the Streets pushing the Milwaukee Mob confused others, who did not understand how the Outfit was over Milwaukee so being confused did not care
- No push at the beginning, should had had between 5-7 ready to go in buying from the list of perks from what I understand a very standard kick off event for many crowd funding efforts a BIG mistake on my part.
- Fan base age, what was a big shocker is seeing no traction I had others look at my Indie Go Go project to see what was wrong with it if anything. Shock came when one of then a young man of about 25 who likes Mob shows said that he had no idea of what the word surveillance met… That was wild is the population becoming that dumb ?
Even with over 250,000 to have seen the tweets on the project less then 1% took the time to see the information, speaks to the idea that most rather see a rerun of Casino or Good Fellows then a documentary I get that with so many just being very very slow and uninteresting.
Again learned a lot paid attention to what I was being told taking that into mind as we plan other ideas
