Still at $25 raised, I have shared this campaign with many people but only one pledge has come in. I guess it’s fine, but I wished we had more pledges right now. Let me address this, if I was not running a Indiegogo campaign, I would probably need $15,000. The extra $5,000 goes towards Indiegogo and Paypal fees and paying for the rewards and shipping costs. I am very optimistic something will happen in early 2014!
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 at $25 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
