On monday (or so) I plan on launching my rocket oven kickstarter. I plan on doing the same thing I did during the last two kickstarters, give people who ask a special link that kickstarter tracks. And then pay out kickbacks. Last year these links brought in over $20,000. So I paid out over $4000 in kickbacks.
Some people shared this link:
- on their own mailing list
- on their own web site or blog
- on their facbook page
- on a few dozen facebook groups
- one guy actually paid for facebook advertising (and got triple money back)
- on mailing lists with lots of people
- on twitter
- via emails to a bunch of people they know
I suppose there are a thousand places all over the internet to share a link like this that I have never heard of. I even kinda wonder if a person could buy adwords ads and get more back - but that is something I really don't understand.
While there were heaps of peeps that dozens of people, about half sold just one and I felt a bit like "I did that extra work so you could give yourself a 20% discount?" So this year I'm gonna make a slight change: 20% kickback for those that rack up at least 2 pledges. So if one other person chips in, then, yeah, you get a 20% discount.
Once the kickstarter is running, I will send each of you an email (using your permies.com email address) with the code. So for now, please reply to this thread to express your interest and I will send you the code when the kickstarter is officially running.
is the thread about the kickstarter.
