for reference, i see that you bought this:  https://permies.com/t/93088/Solar-Dehydrator-Plans-Triple-Combo

When I look at that page as a person that has purchased the product, i see the upgrade option which is to buy the exact same thing as a gift - is that what you are referring to?

maybe convert dimensional and roundwood to a points system
   - if so, maybe make some of the BBs in other badges (like greywater) dole out points in roundwood or dimensional

The idea is to expand the earlybird thing from previous kickstarters into:

  super earlybird
  earlybird
  six rounds of "bonus"

Suppose we have 40 fun things to offer in the earlybird stuff again.  

So maybe we offer all 40 things as super earlybird (first 3 days) - complete with a "click here for details" and in the details we point out that 35 of those things will be offered later.

Then 35 things for the earlybird (3 days) - complete with a "click here for details" and in the details we point out that 30 of those things will be offered later.

Then 30 things as "bonus goodies" if you back in the next three days - complete with a "click here for details" and in the details we point out that 25 of those things will be offered later.

Then 25 things as "bonus goodies" if you back in the next three days - complete with a "click here for details" and in the details we point out that 25 of those things will be offered later.

etc.


If you look at this chart you get the idea that we did well in the first few days - probably because of the earlybird.   And the last few days - mostly because of the stretch goals.  In the middle we got a lot of visitors, but not a lot of backers - so I am curious if this "bonus" system will make a difference.  

So I'm wondering if we offered bonus goodies throughout the kickstarter, maybe we would keep those numbers high for the first 20 days or so.   I think that this will change nothing for the people that are on our mailing lists, but it might make a difference for people coming to the kickstarter from other directions.

Just yet another experiment - my noggin keeps coming up with this stuff.  What do you all think?   Good idea?  Bad idea?  Ideas for optimization?

Oh yeah, I shoulda posted this earlier:


       only 2 tickets left!






I very much appreciate the advice.  I'll probably need a refresher on all this when I have a moment to try it.  For now:  book, kickstarter, events, projects ...
Let me pull out my crystal ball and ....   okay I'm rubbing it  ...    trying to think of mystic words ....   oh, right, there's a big crack in it - I don't think I can get it to work.  :)

Right now the covids are about a quarter of what they were a month or two ago.  So, a strong downward trend.   And that strong downward trend will probably continue and the borders will open in the next few weeks.  

So my thinking is that in about two weeks the PDC will be sold out.  And two weeks after that the border will open and then answering questions about what my official policy is about border comedy becomes a lot easier.  Therefore I choose PUNT!  I will answer these questions in one month!  :)
