We all have too many roles to fulfill and details to remember to be able to do everything perfectly. The trick, then, is what to do first and what to let go altogether. You can combine methods to customize your approach.

Why don’t you just post a link to the survey? New Tutorial website page, and holiday sale!

Posted by:

Why don’t you post a link to the survey?

This question has come often enough now that it has hit critical mass. The reason we don’t post a link to the survey is because Backerkit kindly provides an individual number and individual link for each person’s survey. There isn’t a general link to the survey; each link is part of your individual backer record.

This helps tremendously with record-keeping, and it means that if you haven’t received your survey yet, or you ...

What Happened to Kickstarter?

Posted by:

Some of you are no doubt wondering why we are on Indiegogo instead of Kickstarter where we originally started. Well, here’s what happened:

Creating a Kickstarter project (or any crowd sourced funding project) is a major undertaking. Much as one might like to think it’s a matter of a few hours, communicating well takes time. Furthermore, Kickstarter is known for having very specific guidelines that determine whether or not your project is approved. Unfortunately, there seems to be no way to ...
