27 days are left on our Indiegogo campaign, and still we have raised $0. So what can I do next? I was contacted by someone who might help write a press release. Which will help things. But I am going to need the help from the media to spread the word. If the media can talk about The Prancing Elites from Mobile and have their Kickstarter campaign be successful, then I can make this campaign successful. The media here in East Alabama won’t talk about us because we are competition and we are starting to beat them. So the media like in Birmingham, Atlanta, Huntsville, and other cities will need to talk about us. I am still holding out hope for this campaign, because the future of Geek Alabama depends on it.
The money raised from this campaign will go towards several things. One, our camera equipment is now several years old and the sensors are breaking down. Two, our computer equipment is breaking down. It takes us a couple of hours to process one video because of the slow computer. Geek Alabama wants to move to a self-hosted site so we can accept advertisers. Geek Alabama is currently hosted on WordPress.com where outside advertisers are banned. Funds would also go towards getting radio equipment so we can launch a podcast! The money would also go towards fixing our transportation (car), paying the fees, and paying for the rewards.
We are offering some great rewards for supporting Geek Alabama! These rewards include books, t-shirts, poster, tote bag, other items, and chances to be featured on Geek Alabama! Here is what we are offering!
This Indiegogo campaign is a fixed campaign, which means if we don’t reach the $20,000 goal, we don’t get any funding. And all the pledge rewards will not be made and shipped out. We have plenty of exciting things coming to Geek Alabama in 2014, but if we don’t reach this goal, we might not get to do them. And the people who were counting on us for promotion and coverage will be left without, we don’t want that to happen! We have worked with many great companies and been featured on other media outlets, take a look!
Today, we are still at $0 of our $20,000 raised. If you want to pledge money and select a great reward, go to: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/geek-alabama-fundraiser-help-us-raise-money-to-expand-geek-alabama/x/3587818
