Update: The button is greener on the other side!
This is our current view:
Thank you for your comments, your messages, and for waiting with us! We know the anticipation was off the roof for this update. Now we have a green light to launch on Kickstarter!🎉
To grant everyone the chance to catch the exclusive benefits, we’ll fix a new launch date, that is not too distant, nor too close:
We’ll be hitting our Kickstarter’s green button on the 9th of July! This gives you 3 days to get ready for your exclusive benefits which will only be available during the first 48 hours of the campaign!
Let’s count down together until we meet on Kickstarter. Please click here to access the countdown:
Rewards + your exclusive early birds will be revealed in the next update!
See you on Kickstarter!!
We know you’re as excited as we are for today and can hardly wait to pre-order your Snapbag.
As much as we’d love to go live immediately, this is the view from our side:
Although everything was arranged for launching the campaign today, Kickstarter’s manual review process took much longer than we expected. This is keeping us from pressing that green button to launch the campaign. After checking with Kickstarter we got this explanation:
“Projects under the product design category, especially representing hardware products, sometimes take longer than usual to be reviewed by Kickstarter. Projects are manually hand-picked by the Kickstarter staff to make sure that creators comply with the platform’s guidelines in all aspects of their projects.”
We are constantly checking for the project’s approval status. As soon as it gets approved, we will send you a notification with an exact final launch date.
We will publish posts on all our social media accounts to guarantee that you don’t miss the announcement or the launch.
To make sure that this does not affect you in any way, we will extend the time limit of your exclusive rewards from the first 24hours to the first 48hours of the campaign, so that everyone gets a chance to select them.
Stay on the watch!!
We can’t wait to see you on Kickstarter!!
We spent the last month laying the groundwork for our launch, and we are so excited to share this with you!
If you missed our Newsletter update, here’s the plan: we are going live on Kickstarter on the 25th of June, 2019 with a goal of raising $10,000 USD in 30 days to bring Snapbag to the market.
For those of you who are new to Kickstarter:
As promised you’ll get a 40% off your Snapbag.
And as a thank you for sharing this journey with us, we want to give you exclusive benefits that will only be available to you!
How to do so on a third party platform?
Once we launch our campaign, anyone on Kickstarter would be able to pre-order any selection of the benefits/tiers available. It is not possible to give you a code to use on the platform. Here’s the solution: Kickstarter does allow time-sensitive benefits. We can use this to try and make the exclusive tiers/benefits available only to you by opening them for the first 24 hours of the campaign. This way you will be able to get the benefits before the word spreads about the campaign.
After the 24 hour mark, the benefits will lock, but you will be able to pre-order the other tiers. So make sure not to miss the early birds!
See you on Kickstarter! (Keep reading for a quick recap of our journey together).
After Snapbag’s inception as an idea, then a prototype, we did not hesitate to go online with it.
We posted our first post on Instagram in November 2017, announcing that something is coming soon.
We worked endlessly on Snapbag, we refined the prototype, did research to understand what you need and want your ideal car waste bin to be like. Then we updated, enhanced our product, tested, and retested it. We went on to reveal Snapbag to our early Instagram followers in May 2018. From then on, we kept improving our product, we wrote a patent for Snapbag’s unique operating mechanism, and we kept sharing the word with as many people as possible to prepare for our launch.
Some of our supporters have been following us from day one! We are incredibly grateful for that. While some startups work in silence until they are ready to launch, we chose a different path, as you know by now. We thrived to include everyone interested in Snapbag on its journey, since the very beginning. Looking back, we wouldn’t have done it any other way.
And now Snapbag is going live on Kickstarter on the 25th of June, a few days from now.
We are so excited about this. Our journey is just beginning, with you by our side.
In the following updates, we’ll be sharing with you a live countdown (by popular demand😍) and the exclusive benefits!
See you on Kickstarter!
