With just 5 days to go until Culem launches on Kickstarter, we thought we'd give you a quick run-down on how you can join our mission to make Culem Watches a reality!'
One of the items that cropped up several times in response to the CuleM customer survey that we ran last year was that 49% of respondents were not familiar with Kickstarter. So, in this week’s blog, we want to introduce you to the Kickstarter platform and the wonders of crowdfunding in an easy step-by-step guide to the platform!
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is an online platform where entrepreneurs, or anyone with a great product or business idea, can propose their project to be ‘crowdfunded’ – funded by individuals known as backers around the world. It’s essentially a collective investment in a project to bring a product to life and, in return, people pledge funds to back a project are given unique rewards - In CuleM’s case, you the backer are pledging to buy a reward of one to five World GMT watches.
Another non-traditional aspect to the investment platform is that project funding is all-or-nothing – if a project does not reach its target investment goal, the investors will not be charged for the amount that they pledged. This means there’s less risk to all parties involved as well as adding a sense of excitement and urgency for backers to spread the word about the campaign they’re involved in!
CuleM has been working on pre-sales to make the project a success with backers in Australia, China, Switzerland, Russia, UK and USA. With their and your support, we hope to exceed our target on day one.
As loyal subscribers, you will be the first to know about our exclusive discounted rewards for only a small number of backers on day one.
Please use the unique link we send you on launch day to back the campaign. If you do this, we will give you an additional exclusive reward.
If you do not use the link and go to the Kickstarter site directly and search for Culem for example, we will not be able to give you an exclusive reward because our marketing partners will earn a commission. So, please remember to use the unique link we send you!
How do I support the CuleM campaign?
First of all, you’ll need a Kickstarter account – It’s very easy and takes about 30 seconds to sign up. You can sign up here: https://www.kickstarter.com/signup We recommend that you do this now so you do not miss out on the exclusive discounted rewards. Now, you are all set for our launch on 7th May!
Once we send you our unique link to the Culem Watches Kickstarter page, just click the green “Back This Project” button on the campaign page or can scroll down to select a reward tier.
After you’ve selected your reward tier, you’ll be prompted to enter your payment information.
If you want to buy more than five watches, please email us at email@example.com
If you don't want a specific reward tier, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your desired pledge amount. Every single euro helps with the visibility of the page and increases our ranking, not only this, but you will get access to all of our updates, deals and more.
Lastly, click the “Pledge" button and you’ll be all set! You should receive a confirmation email after completing your pledge.
The Culem Kickstarter campaign launches on Tuesday 7th May.
