End of week 1 Wrap Up of the HAM Radio Store Campaign 

•April 22, 2016 • Leave a Comment

So here it is then end of a week looking for people to give me money so I can start a business. I have had over 500 visitors to this site with only 1 donation of $1000.00.

Then GoFundMe took the donation away because they did not like my rewards, so I removed my rewards.

I have been spreading this to all of my social media areas and I am picking up viewers a little at a time.

I said in the beginning that one of the reasons that I am using crowd funding is to gage the interest in this adventure.

I will giving this GoFundMe account 90 days to properly test the waters so to speak then I will decide on what next steps I should take with this idea.

I hope you are all doing well and as always pass this along.

Have a nice day

Day 7 of the HAM Radio Store Campaign 

•April 21, 2016 • Leave a Comment

It’s been a week so far and this campaign is off to a slow start. I have seen stats that say you make over 60% of your donations in the first 24 hours. Well I hope that proves false here or I am in big trouble.

I as soon as I get over $500.00 in donations (all the way through to my bank account), I will start developing videos and posting them to make this more interesting.

I hope you are all doing well and as always pass this along.

Have a nice day

Day 6 of the HAM Radio Store Campaign

•April 20, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Well this sucks, I lost my first donation because GoFundMe does not like my rewards, to quote:

Due to the high risk nature of the incentives listed on your campaign, we are unable to process these payments. Please remove the incentives in question in order to continue processing payments.”

Because of this I have removed my rewards and have lost my first and only donation.

Life, you are a harsh mistress.

Well that’s all for now, please pass this along to anybody you know and thank you for your time 

Day 5 of the HAM Radio Store Campaign

•April 19, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Good Morning Internet!! I woke up to another fine day the birds are shinning, the sun is singing and life could not be better.

I am starting to get hits on my business website (www.pelletierselectronics.com), my Twitter account is starting to explode (@glpelletier) and my Facebook site is really busy (www.facebook.com/glpelletier). I have the beginnings of donations ($1,000.00) and my plan is close to being finished, man does it take a long time to do the paperwork for a small business!

I have started to post videos on my YouTube page (www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ8wWEFKLqctGRCBki1UmSw) and I will start to post more videos once I get my webcam. I downloaded a couple of free pieces of software for screen capture (CamStudio) and video editing (Windows Movie Maker) and I produced my first video and posted it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiXQEnk7-Sk) it is only 38 seconds long and it does not have any sound. I will probably post a couple more test videos before I produce real content.

My first video (real) will be introducing myself to the world.

 

Well that’s all for now, please pass this along to anybody you know and thank you for your time.

Howdy,

It’s day 3 of my campaign and it looks like I am picking up a small following. I worked on my software last night and still need to polish it and write the documentation for it. I have a master plan for the business, I will be converting that into a formal business plan soon.

When you get the chance pass this along to somebody you know, thank you.
