The high notify number is a good thing -

But a big part of what helped our number this time is that we were able to make ref codes prior to launch, so people were able to promote it among their community and audience as well, whereas in past kickstarters, other people weren't really able to promote until after launch.  Effectively, shifting our Kickback activity to the pre-launch phase.

Another way of saying this is that, until this kickstarter, all pre-launch talk has been interal to permies only.  So there may be a little bit of false inflation in the notify number.

At the same time, a strong start helps make a strong kickstarter, so there's that . . .

I got the video up on youtube (currently unlisted).  Need to add a card, comment and endscreen ...

Looking through the kickstarter page and have made a couple of nudges.

We are now at 1393 followers and climbing ...

What else?  Anything else?  I feel like there are a dozen more things to do ...


SHIT!  I need to put together a monthlyish for when we launch!

1 tiny thing I found:

When I click the button 'More' next to Paul's name, it gives a pop-up titled 'about the creator' with, obviously, a short text about Paul. There, in the second sentence I found a typo: "Bad Boy of Permcaulture"

Everything else looks great, I've been following this KS prep and couldn't catch anything that somebody else hadn't mentioned already.

Woohooooww!!!

You might have r!  I thought I might be able to be first and by the time I finished clicking everything it said i was backing along with 9 others, so I figure I was #10.  If you didn't see something saying you and so many others were backing then I think you did it!!!
