I’m stoked to write this final campaign email to say WE HIT OUR TARGET!
It was a bit of a stunning start to the morning!
We made a good start to the campaign in the first week. During the second week things slowed and I asked our Boosted NZ mentor, Dallas, what we should do. And along with some practical advice she said, “Go for the win!”
So I took that on and decided to just enjoy the process, be proactive, Go for the Win, and let the outcome take care of itself.
It was quite a good phase in the third and fourth weeks, with an Radio One interview, a Life FM interview, and an article in The Star. It’s the first time for AGES we’ll had something resembling a publicity campaign… and it was actually kind of fun to be reaching out and connecting.
And now, just ahead of our final big push that was due this weekend, we have hit the target. This is so cool. At this point, we have the option to activate our “stretch goal” which is to add another song to the EP.
But we’ve decided not to push for it. We’re so stoked already, and think this is enough. Any extra donations at this point WILL contribute to the project, but we’ll take the win and get on with preparing to do the work to take this EP to the finish line.
Thanks very much to those of you who have donated. It means so much to us. If you were anonymous, and we haven’t been able to thank you in person, THANK YOU.
We look forward to finishing this EP (which is now a happening thing!) and sharing more music with you. We’re also now lining up gigs for the new year, and will let you know.
Take care - feel free to hit reply and let us know how things are for you at this time of year. It’d be nice to hear from you.
