    Yes, initially we were using: "A high-quality athletic sock disguised as a dress sock." I'll go back to that, bit simpler/easier to understand tthan "A premium dress sock engineered for the office and the gym.

    Trying to figure that out and what to put into it. TBH this isn't going as well as we were hoping, sales have stagnated and I am trying to figure out what else we can do to improve conversions etc. Recently campaigns like this did decent: SilverSocks - World's Cleanest Silver Merino Wool Crew...

    Unfortunately didn't have a good system for tracking and not 100% sure where the direct sales are all from. I think most is from our emails / personal outreach, but need to track better, @ZCP, I appreciate the push and honestly, can't think of a great way to respond. Not sure if somewhere like...

    Wish I had a better answer for you. Although I may approach this different next time, launching on Kickstarter Tuesday so hoping to sell as many as possible then. I did have a meeting with a sock store here in San Diego, wasn't the right demographic for our product though. Once the...

    Well shit. We setup to work with Matix labs, have worked on lots of campaigns and had great results in the past. They cut our video into a shorter version and were running facebook lead gen ads... however, the cost per lead has been $6.11....way to high. They haven't really been communicating...

    We had some issues with that when we tested some really great fibers (like Nylon 6.6) Since the fiber was so fine there were issues at the crossover point. WE used a different Nylon blend and it's cleaner and much more durable. I tried to upload pictures to explain, but it doesn't seem to be...

    Greatly appreciate you pointing out those typos. In terms of the logo's, HEIQ uses them on their site so figured it wouldn't be a problem....may be wrong though. "Why only a $10,000 goal?" That is the minimum amount to hit, not the maximum. The faster you hit your goal the better for the...

    EXECUTION Launching oKickstarter: A premium dress sock that can confidently be worn from the office to the gym

    Here is our reasoning on price. This is a premium product, our goal of $22 was as an anchor to A: show its premium, B: get people to buy multiple (we really don't want to sell single pairs.) 3 for $45 for example, which brings it down to $15 a pair. Totally reasonable when you look at...
