What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a way for individuals or companies to raise money by asking many individuals to contribute funds. Most crowdfunding takes places on the internet through Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Contributions start for as little $1 and go up from there.
Why is Rockready crowdfunding the Volo gig bag?
We want to bring our idea for the perfect gig bag to the market and connect with other guitar players that have a need for a better gig bag.
What do you gain by contributing?
You get a fantastic, one-time only price as low as $99 for a gig bag that will protect your guitar and serve you well for many years. After our crowdfunding concludes, the price of our gig bag rises to $159. So don’t miss out on this opportunity. If you haven’t checked out our campaign, click here to see it.
We believe that the internet levels the field and gives small companies, like us, the opportunity to bring our ideas to the market place. Now, with crowdfunding, our customers have a chance to participate in the process. Your contributions tell us if we’re on track – if we’re meeting a need of yours – and have developed an idea that will be a viable product.
We also look at Crowdfunding as a way to develop a community of people that share common interests : great gear with a social conscience. You may have already know that we’re giving 5% percent of the proceeds from our Crowdfunding to Little Kids Rock. When we reach our goal, Little Kids Rock can get 25 kids a music education for a whole year! This is part of our Rockready mission statement. Once the crowdfunding is complete we will continue to give back to the music community.
We’re planning more guitar accessories and will continue to use crowdfunding to gauge interest, raise money, and give our Rockready supporters the first opportunities to participate and get the best deals on new gear.
We look forward to your questions and comments. If you have any specific concerns post your comments here or email us.
