Our Indiegogo campaign is almost ready to launch! I can hear you saying “Well that’s awesome, but what the heck is it?” Don’t worry friends, this post is for you.
Indiegogo is a “launch pad for entrepreneurial ideas.” It’s a crowd-funding platform, which means that it will allow us to raise funds online. These funds are provided through contributions made by many different people, from our fan-base and also from others around the world. The best part of all of this is that in exchange for your donation, you’ll get amazing perks.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: We enter in our amazing idea + a whole bunch of details about it + awesome perks
Step 2: You go check it out and decide that you want to be a part of making Trek an awesome place.
Step 3: You pick your donation level and check out which amazing perks you can claim.
Step 4: Indiegogo takes a 5% cut of the $ raised and the rest goes to Trek Brewing.
Step 5: We send you your perks!
Step 6: Your friends are all jealous of your cool Trek Brewing Company gear and/or bragging rights at the brewery.
Now that you know the basics, I’ll outline what we’re planning to do. (drum roll please..) With the funds raised from Indiegogo, Trek Brewing Company will create an amazing patio space. As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve got an INCREDIBLE location. Everything about it is ideal… except for the outside space. Currently there is not a spot to sit outside and enjoy a beer with friends. We feel like that is an important part of a great community gathering spot.
Many of you have asked how you can help – here is your tangible answer. Just like Facebook, there are complicated algorithms that boil down to: the more interaction the campaign has, the more Indiegogo will push it out for other people to see. Our goal is to raise a third of our funds in the first week. If we exceed our goal, that’s not a problem at all… we’ve got stretch goals in mind that will make the patio an incredible spot to be.
The campaign will launch SOON. We’re respectfully asking that when it happens, you’ll take a minute and go look at the amazing perks that we’re offering – and pick an amount to donate. We’ll have awesome perks from $5 all the way up to $1000 and everything in between. Once you’ve decided on your amazing perk, we’d love for you to invite all your friends to take a look as well. In this case, sharing is definitely caring.
This is our dream, our big adventure, but it won’t be complete without YOU. We want Trek to truly be a community space, your third place. We’d love your help making it amazing. If you have more questions please feel free to shoot me a message on Facebook or send me an email, and I’ll get back to you asap!
