Check Out This Awesome Liberty-Oriented Kickstarter!

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”100″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_circle”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]Professionally I work as business consultant, primarily working with e-commerce sellers and online entrepreneurs.

I have an awesome idea, but I need to validate it. I need to do something to measure my market’s interest before I commit any further resources or time on it.

This kickstarter is not an end in itself, but instead a means towards building something greater.

The most important thing that needs done is to build a list of people who know, like, and care about the mission we’re on.

This project, a small sale of $25-50, is meant to draw out the people we are looking for.  It is easy to find people who say that they care about your message and mission, but you can be SURE that someone cares when they spend money on something.

So this project is a seed which is will grow into another series of projects.  Once we launch this project successfully, we will then need to launch a new projects every 3 to 6 months to sell more to our existing list (and find our best customers) and also grow the list more.

Besides these projects and offers we make to the liberty-market, we also will need to begin to transition into teaching.  I am going to put together a free email course that shows people how I launched this project and the steps someone else can take if they want to have a successful kickstarter-style promotion.

The goal of teaching is to gain authority and credibility within the libertarian circle. This way we can easily partner with other leaders who have big lists/followings—and then we can leverage the magnitude of our future projects by having other influential individuals promote our projects to their followers.

It starts with this first offer, from there we become the teachers and interviewers to build authority. The final goal of all of this is to recruit the very smartest individuals into our organization.  First we get steady, paying customers—then we begin recruiting and building the fraternity.

Tom Woods owes me a shout out, I can get Jeffery Tucker to help promote, Dan McCall from LibertyManiacs will definitely help us, and I also have a handful of libertarian FB groups with large followings who can help us launch this.

I also work with business owners to help them source products from China everyday, so I’m sure that I can pull this off.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

So What’s The Project All About???

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

There are a handful of organizations I support, two of which are Liberland and the Mises Institute:

So One Day I Had This Crazy Idea:

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

It all started with my Mises crest I have on my car–look how it has faded from the Florida sun  :(

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image image=”9688″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

That night I got to thinking… I was looking at the Mises pin I have, and thought how cool it would look if it was bigger:

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image image=”9689″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

Like this:

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image image=”9691″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

Or more like this:

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image image=”9692″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

Or even better, this:

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image source=”external_link” alignment=”center” custom_src=”http://images.fineartamerica.com/images-medium-large-5/cadillac-emblem-jill-reger.jpg”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

For example, if you had a Mises crest it would look something like this:

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image source=”external_link” alignment=”center” custom_src=”http://thumbs2.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mPVoP3Fodqy6wn-l5eFjzLg.jpg”][vc_single_image image=”9697″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

More examples of my amateur Photoshop skills:

So instead of replacing my faded sticker, I would source a Chinese factory to produce these painted, stamped-alumnium logo emblems:

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”9694″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

Pretty cool, huh?

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”9695″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

The only thing I cannot decide is… would it look better as a Liberland promotion?

[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”white”][vc_single_image image=”9699″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]

So the first goal is to validate these ideas.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=””]I can guarantee that this will be successful as long as I can generate enough interest in the beginning.

The reason this kickstarter will be successful is because we are going to do a “pre-kickstarter” so that when we launch the actual kickstarter we will already know there is a group of people who are excited and can’t wait to see the project succeed.

The next stage is for me to build a sales page for this Mises/Liberland Crest project that has an email opt-in as well as a FB group people can join so we can talk to them and keep them interested.  After that we both will spread the word of this project on all of libertarian sites we can think of–we will contact influencers and FB page owners who have large following.

Really the main thing we are now waiting on is me—I must produce the sales page and lead capture to run this promotion and larger campaign.  I like the pressure though, I have been wanting to do this project for a while now, so this is the perfect motivation to get it done.

Thank you for you time and I can’t wait to talk more about this—let me know what you think!!!
