Yes I agree...too many tiers....perhaps just stick to honorable mention, bronze, silver, gold and onxy tiers?

Like honourable mention around 10
Bronze 25
Silver 50
Gold 80
onxy 150?

And an add-on would be for personal coaching that I am offering?

Hello friends,
Don't mean to be a nervous nelly, but what happens to the donations if we don't meet the goal?

I'm not a money guy so much, so take my input with that little grain of salt. I do think though based on my work with non-profits that you may have too many tiers. Too many choices leads to decision paralysis. (Kickstarter says that most campaigns are between 3 and 10 tiers -- I'd still say 10 is too many, but that's me...) I'd also axe the $1 one for sure and maybe other low ones -- those aren't worth administering and aren't going to get you over the hump. Maybe start at $20?

I love the "Get Your Name on a Map" idea! Is that like a name on a territory? Or is it more like "12 Domains Sponsored by Matilda the Hun"? That should be clarified. (Either way, a cool prize!) Or maybe you could have both -- a territory for one price, a whole map for another.

An exclusive Service Award medal would be cool too for the higher tiers. (Maybe that's what the "Service Award" column is? Not sure...) I know that would take coding, but this is an all-or-nothing fundraiser as you say. Presumably, you'd have the money to add that in.

I like the tournament idea too. Maybe you could set aside some of the money for a special, real-life medal to play for, like they did with the old Atari tournaments in the day. Wouldn't have to be anything fancy-fancy, just something different.

Anyway, my two cents.

-MTH

Great ideas!

I will make some changes....

Meanwhile, maybe looking at the actual Kickstarter page might answer some concerns.

This is a SPECIAL PREVIEW link. This shows a DRAFT of the page we're working on. I believe you can leave some comments once you look it over....

Yeah, I wasn't sure where to put the coaching. If it were to be an add-on, then we'd have to put a price on something that is priceless! :)

But yeah, I was either going to offer it as an addon for a price (limited quantity) - Or include it in some of the higher tiers (also limited quantity)

Like for example:

$100 - Onyx Rewards
$100 - Onyx Rewards + Personal Coach (limited to the first 3 donors only)

It's all-or-nothing. That's why we're only asking for $5,000, and not asking for the $20,000, (which we really really want!)

I searched through a bunch of successfully funded kickstarter campaigns for games, and most, if not all, had around 10 tiers to choose from. So I don't think too much choice is an issue. I guess it's because there is a reward involved, not just a straight up donation. So I took some time to make sure that each higher tier offered something more than the previous one.

What about this?
