Biggest lesson learned from building in public & the kickstarter: K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Stupid ... #kickstarter #buildinpublic
50% raised on our Kickstarter while making pretty much every rookie mistake in the book. bit.ly/chalkrebels #kickstarter #buildinpublic
We're doing a pull-up challenge to promote the Kickstarter: each backer gets one pull-up dedicated by a member of the crew or a chalk rebels fan #buildinpublic bit.ly/chalkrebels
So yeah, it's alive ... Chalk Powder with UpsaliteĀ® Kickstarter ... USA + EU Shipping @ bit.ly/chalkrebels #buildinpublic #crowdfunding #climbing
Product Dev Flashback. In the summer of 2021 we decided to boost our liquid chalk with UpsaliteĀ®. We immediately shared our first samples with climbers to get feedback. Speed & early feedback is crucial when creating new products. #buildinpublic #customerdevelopment #climbing
Product Dev. "I swear officer, this is not what you think it is ..." You end up doing all kinds of weird things to prototype chalk packaging. Walter White would be proud. New packaging prototyping summer 2022 ... #buildinpublic #climbing #chalk
I have 4 more tasks on my checklist & then we go live with the #kickstarter #buildinpublic
We were super late to the T-Shirt game at Chalk Rebels. Like 2 years late. Spring 2022. Know the boulder on this one? (Hint: it's on Font & you can't climb it anymore) #climbing #shirt #bouldering #buildinpublic
2 days ago I promised to tweet the open rate on our Kickstarter campaign announcement list: it stands at 39% after 2 days. Is that good? Bad? #buildinpublic #kickstarter
@ThePeterMick I'm Francis, I'm as software developer but I'm kickstarting a physical product now: high-performance chalk for climbers ... Follow along if you want to see how I build an actual physical product in public #buildinpublic bit.ly/chalkrebels
We're going to be selling some of our existing products at unprecedented prices in our #kickstarter #crowdfunding campaign. All in stock. Timing it so that we make Christmas delivery for sure! #buildinpublic #climbing
A little preview of a bit of our Kickstarter campaign #buildinpublic
Sent out launch email for our Kickstarter to "The List" ... last time our max open rate was 57%. Will report back with current open rate. Guess that means we're launched? #buildinpublic
A couple of things I'm not liking about the Kickstarter platform: 1) I can't add image to rewards 2) I can't add the FAQ before I launch #kickstarter #buildinpublic
Okay ... now my eyes definitely are starting to glaze over ... editing the Kickstarter rewards for our UpsaliteĀ® Chalk campaign ... #kickstarter #climbing #chalk #buildinpublic
Here's a crazy idea: 24h of hangboarding ... I'll live-stream a 24h hangboarding session where I do a rep / hang for every order that comes in ... #buildinpublic #crowdfunding #climbing #amicrazy
@_skris Would be awesome* if we could get him to use the #buildinpublic hashtag.
* for a very peculiar definition of "awesome"
Just finished the landing page for our Kickstarter ... Twitter is the first to know ... then again ... "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

When you realize you urgently need graphical assets for your launch campaign & your community delivers like a champ. I received 70 kick-ass climbing images in less than 24h! #buildinpublic #climbing
