I realized a while ago that in order for my business to succeed, it was crucial that I establish a name for myself. Once I decided to use Kickstarter to raise startup funds, it became necessary to start on that sooner rather than later which, as I see it, is another advantage of using Kickstarter.
To this end, I’ve started a serious attempt at using social media tools. Sindrian arts now has a facebook page at facebook.com/sindrianarts, a twitter account @sindrianarts, and of course this blog, which can be reached through sindrianarts.com. However, the real challenge is getting into the habit of using all three of these regularly. Of the three, I think I’m doing the best at Twitter, since it’s fairly easy to find neat stuff to comment on and re-tweet. However, I really need to post here more often, and I’m still figuring out how to best use the facebook page.
Now, before I can actually start my Kickstarter project, there are still a few things I need to do. First off, I need to finish the design for the CNC gantry router so I have something to show people. Second, I need to make a nice video for the project page telling people about my project. Finally, I have to finalize my list of rewards for pledges. I plan on having the first part done by Friday. We’ll see how it goes!
