FOCX EVERYDAY WALLET

Our first Kickstarter campaign starts next week. We are so excited and hope that we do everything well. It´s one of the world´s smallest and most comfortable minimalist smart wallet. 

About a year ago, we started looking for a wallet which, at the time, did not exist. The idea was to make it minimalist and functional while, at the same time, including some technical features and – most importantly – making its owners proud due to the uniqueness of its design. 

And we managed!

Can you give me a bit more information about the wallet?

Oct 10, 10:36PM EDT0

"The materials we use, our love for both detail and shape as well as the clever way we have implemented our ideas make the FOCX Wallet your daily companion with a certain something. Thanks to its light weight and reduced size, its gorgeous feel and minimalist look, the FOCX Everyday Wallet is a champion in its league, both practical and highly comfortable for its owner at any time. The source of our inspiration to create this extraordinary wallet was the admirable and clever fox. The fox is a fast, strong and, as it were, hollywoodlike animal. Moreover, in spite of its predatory tendencies, the fox is just simply cute and sexy. By choosing the FOCX Everyday Wallet, you choose to make an outstanding appearance."

Is the population you are targeting to donate the same as the target group you want to buy your product?

Oct 10, 11:54AM EDT0

Good question. I hope. But it will very hard to match the target after campaign is done. I want to sell the wallet from my website and amazon. To reach the U.S.A. is not easy from Germany.

When and how did you think of this idea?

Oct 9, 8:34PM EDT0

Hi Robert, since 2 years ago I began to think about my options to realize a project on Kickstarter. Last year my wife give me to my birthday a "Kickstarter Starterkit" with tools for the leather prepare. After some Youtube viedeo I started with my first prototypes.

Is it a good idea to include a video in the crowdfunders and why?

Oct 9, 7:43PM EDT0

Absolutly, Indiegogo writes that campaign with videos brings up to 2000% more funding.  Videos are more viral - and this is good for sharing.

How different do you feel your concept is compared to anything else out there right now?

Oct 9, 7:18PM EDT0

Hi Joshua, this question was since the whole process of the prototyping in my mind. I think the difference are not so big. Our wallet have a NFC-Tag (that´s something new) and a RFID blocking card (that´s standard meanwhile). For me the most important difference is the design. We´ve a patent to the design (SUMO™). But it is a wallet :)

How much information should I share on a crowdfunder and how important is it?

Oct 9, 7:03PM EDT0

Hi Amanda, this is hard question. In marketing is less more. For the campaign site it is good to share all the important informations. The backers need to know, that they support.

How much research did you do before you designed the wallet?

Oct 9, 5:51PM EDT0

Hi, very very much. First I have looked to all founded wallets on Kickstarter which have more than 10 times reached their goal, analyze them at whick point they was successfull. Thank I checked many wallets which have not reached their goal and analyze them. With this infos I have created a list with do´s and don´ts - this was the base for my prototype.

Is this your first campaign and if not, what important lesson have you learnt from using crowdfunding so far?

Oct 9, 1:45PM EDT0

Hi Aaron, it is my first campaign and I learned how many different facettes a Kickstarter campaign has. Research, prototyping, conatcting producers, test production, social media, marketing, and so on! Really much work. But I love it :)

How much research did you do in regard to crowdfunding before you settled on this particular site?

Oct 9, 1:09PM EDT0

Hi Joshua, as an Envato-Contributer I know that research and benchmark are the most important things in doing business. But because Kickstarter is an absolutly new field for me, I hope that I do enough research to match the market expectations :) In time: 3 month research and analysis, 4 month prototyping!

Why did you decide to start a Kickstarter campaign to fund your project?

Oct 9, 12:54PM EDT0

Hi Melody. Thank you for your message. To start a Kickstarter campaign is a dream of me since I start to design things. Designing is for me the most normally thing what people can do. Every child is a designer :) but we forget it when we grow up. Kickstarter brings me back to my childhood!
