These comments are common and very encouraging. But, it’s short of what we need. I’ve been reassessing our IndieGoGo campaign to date and at some point, we knew we needed help. So, we got some.
My partner and I just got off the phone with an entrepreneur and business coach* who was very generous of her time and talent. What great advice she gave us! *(Cool lady and one of her clients is Johnson and Johnson.)
First, she GETS it. She really loves, loves, loves our idea and so much about what we’re doing. She says our app we’re developing has so many positives—reaching children all over the world, that they can learn substantive music content and skills while playing an engaging game. “Moms will love this,” she said. She says we have amazing credibility and a fabulous idea.
What’s missing? Our message isn’t working quite like it needs, or it’s not getting out there to enough people—folks like our new coach who really gets it. Also, we absolutely need a finished prototype that would make it easier for people to understand what this app will actually do, so it will be easier to understand, get feed back, and gain traction. Ideas are easy. What’s hard is getting them into people’s hands and reiterating until we have it the way it needs to be done right. We’re bootstrapping this, making our dollars stretch far, but we are asking for your support. Give us your feedback and/or money. And please share with your communities. They may “get it” and help us create a more musical world together.
