Well, that went well. I really enjoyed my first live-streaming experience on Kickstarter last night – and learnt a lot too. It was great to have a few watchers live, but also it’s been fantastic that people have continued to watch after the event. I even managed to gain 3 more backers from the experience – hooray for Harold, Emily and Josh!
If you missed it, I largely chuntered on about the roots of the project, featuring The Emerald of Wolla-Wolla and telling the story that you’ll also find here on the making of page. But I also spoke a little about how running the project had been and gave a shout-out to the first 50 backers.
It was so much fun that I immediately scheduled another livestream: https://soils.wisc.edu/wp-content/uploads/index.php?apr=creativity-problem-solving http://kerulos.org/4275-viagra-and-generic/ follow site research proposal format for phd in commerce thesis on energy security mettaton essay easter eggs ryerson cover letter samples follow url viagra cost mumbai essay mahatma gandhi english enter site tips on writting an essay viagra memes source site cialis stories guarenteed generic viagra top dissertation conclusion writer services ca http://www.trinitypr.edu/admission/essay-buy/53/ programming homework toprol and viagra cyalis follow link follow link lord the flies essay go https://nyusternldp.blogs.stern.nyu.edu/i-want-to-type-a-letter-on-my-ipad/ enter site viagra feminino lady prelox go to site thesis format scribd thesis introduction in english how to write curse words with symbols source Monday 25th, 8.30pm. I guess it’ll probably be another 30 minute long sort of thing, but I’m anticipating sharing more about meeting and marketing… I’ve also discovered there is a Beta test option to simultaneously stream to Facebook – which I will DEFINITELY employ. I can see that stream getting even more interest.
Anyway, between now and then I am going to try and do some old-fashioned face-to-face marketing. I still have 500 flyers advertising the project and this weekend there are two Steampunk Convivials (that’s the name steampunks give to their meetups/conventions/festivals) at locations withing striking distance. The Crossness Engines Steampunk Convivial is going to be held just south and along the river from where we live – at the fascinating Gothic Revival Palace of Sanitation that is the Crossness Pumping Station. I discovered the place a few months ago on a long riverside walk (from Woolwich to Erith). It is one of several incredible late victorian buildings that housed massive steam engines to pump sewage through Bazalgette’s ground-breaking sewer system. And they still have their MASSIVE BEAM ENGINES, apparently in working, restored condition. So what an opportunity to see inside, as well as to meet up with a good proportion of my target audience…
Then on Sunday there’s a similar event, the Essextraordinaire III, at Maldon, at the Museum of Power, which hosts another working steam engine. If I manage to get to both I’ll be very pleased with them, but I’m stirred to try and do it. That means a bit of a push for me since although I’m fine starting conversations, I get very English and ‘over-polite’ about trying to sell people something / ask for something. Personal growth and publishing at the same time – wooh!
