Clearing Up Some Questions On My Girls Doll House!
As you can imagine there has been quite a buzz started about the wonderful new MY GIRLS DOLL HOUSE that has just come on the market. I have received some questions from some of you my wonderful readers both via email and on Facebook and I have contacted the company for clarification.
Some of you wanted to know about the Website and Kickstarter and the program. Below is the answers I received from the company directly.
"Basically, we put our web store on hold to allow everyone to get the same deal through our Kickstarter campaign. If you go through Kickstarter you will actually get an even better deal. You can back us with a $250 pledge which is $50 more off and still free shipping. There is no risk whatsoever. If we don't meet our fundraising goals, those who pledged will still be honored with the price from Kickstarter after our campaign is over. The time frame of getting a house is also the exact same, so there is no reason to worry there either."
"Prior to the busy holiday season, we've elected to take a 20-day Kickstarter. As you may know, Kickstarter is a crowd-funding site. By achieving early funding, we will simply have more money to drive promotional activity in October (on your site!). Kickstarter is an amazing tool, and it's name says everything. They really do Kickstart future sales.
One of my readers was worried about if there would be enough doll houses available for the holiday season.
"Most importantly, we are re-opening our website on October 2nd with the Affiliate program in place. At that time, together we will drive awareness and significant sales, and share in that success. Secondly, we have committed to the factory to bring thousands of units of the dollhouse to our warehouse. We will absolutely have inventory to satisfy a strong October–December Affiliate push."
Another reader wanted to know what happens if the Kickstarter program is not funded? Would they loose there investment?
In case you are not familiar with Kickstarter- whatever you pledge you will receive, as long as we reach our goal! For instance, if you pledge $250.00, you will receive a dollhouse and free shipping. There are other levels as well, and a great opportunity for a retailer - so please share the Kickstarter Program with your valued viewers!
Kickstarter will refund any pledges in the unlikely situation of not making our goal, and Wicked Cool Toys further commits to refunding the pledges themselves for that matter!
This is the only time they will get the house for the massively discounted kickstarter price, but they would be able to buy it on one of the online retailers if the Kickstarter doesn't fund.
Finally, thank you so much. We need your valuable expertise in establishing this 20-day Kickstarter program! We believe strongly that a successful Kickstarter program will result in far more sales during our 10/2– 12/15 period.
I am so excited about this doll house and I know many of you are thrilled to see this on the market. I am so happy that so many of you took the time to write me and inquire. I hope that the answers provided by the company help to explain.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
