INDIEGOGO UPDATE: Yay!! Thanks to everyone's support we are on the home page of the Small Business/Entrepreneur section, along with a bunch of other awesome business looking to raise capitol for a multitude of things. This is very exciting for our campaign!! The more we all talk/share/leave comments the more "popular" the campaign is, raising the exposure to the funders on Indiegogo. We are super excited about opening our very first retail shop!!
If you've never heard of crowd funding, you should take a minute to check out Kickstarter and Indiegogo. In a nutshell they offer regular people a platform to raise funds for a variety of things. Kind of like a modern day barn raising!
Crowd funding has been in the news recently on Mashable Businesshttp://mashable.com/2012/04/06/crowdfunding-bill-investors-tips/
Obama signed a bill a few days ago that addresses crowd funding as well. Here is a little snippet of what he said about it... “One of the great things about America is that we’re a nation of doers,” said President Obama at a White House signing ceremony, where he was flanked by members of Congress and some of the nation’s top entrepreneurs.
“We think big, take risks and believe that anyone with a solid plan and a willingness to work hard can take even the most improbable idea and turn it into a solid business.”
Please note: We are in NO WAY asking you to donate, the way Indiegogo works is, you start the buzz with your circle of influence first and go from there. We would LOVE it if you guys simply left a comment and/or shared the link. The more chatter and buzz we get on our campaign means we *might* get moved to the home page, essentially getting our campaign in front of more people.
Once again, thank you guys for all your love and support!!
When we started making soap 7 years ago, we never dreamed that one day we would be on the verge of opening a retail location...
