We've finally finished our explanation video (for our Kickstarter Campaign)  :) As you can see in the video, ProBUDDY Racks will also be in the Kickstarter Kits (in Engineer Kit, Master Kit, and Kit of the Kings).

We have almost %95 finished our Kickstarter page, planning to do a pre-launch this weekend. I've never created this much GIF's in my life I think!  :) ProBUDDY Webpage has also been revised: https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/

And Guys, I can clearly tell that the kits we've sent to professionals in Austria, USA, Serbia and Italy were approved for usability.

These are what they say about ProBUDDY Kits:

Guys, we are constantly upgrading the items in ProBUDDY Kits in order to decrease injection moulding investment need, increase the quality and design. I can assure you we will be supplying the best versions of ProBUDDY Kits in our Kickstarter Campaign (much better than the review versions, sorry :)

(We are feeling really high pressure calculating the content of the kits, costs, prices.. But the upgrades mentioned above motivates us and we learn a lot! This is a honest sharing.)

We will be grateful if you subscribe to our email list in Sunday Robotics webpage to get notified first about opportunities.

Meanwhile, I'd like to share our experience with Kickstarter applications.

Before applying for the campaign, we are trying to decrease reward prices as low as possible and at the end of the campaign we are hoping to cover plastic injection molds and then go to mass production.

Spreading word is important and what people do is to go to the Kickstarter agencies and collaborate with them. I talked to few and their demand is huge. Around 750-1K$ upfront (which is ok) then 3-4k for advertising and then %30 from the total fund backed from their audience! That means from total fund (rewards + shipment payments, yes) -{%10 (Kickstarter + C.Card Handlers fee) + %30 Agency fee} = The start up is left with around %60 of total fund (All the costs and shipments and everything will be paid from this) hoping to survive and finish the project successfully. Which seems very hard and makes whole Kickstarter system almost inefficient.

Thats why we are now asking everybody to spread the word.. We have to reach more people and let them know that ProBUDDY Kits will be on Kickstarter 01 February 2022. Professionals say that building email subscribers list is important, our subscription form is on our webpage: https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/

Can you spread the word? and/or are you in contact with anybody that can help us? Thanks a million!

Your Support is Important and Valuable to us

We have started up Sunday Robotics with big goals in Robotics, ProBUDDY Kits will be a good start for us to pass the death valley ahead (first years for Start  Up until achieving sustainable income). With this campaign we will be sourcing our very first funding and those will be very important and valuable to us.

With your support in this campaign, you will be putting very first Bricks into Sunday Robotics' foundation and this will not be forgotten. We will be providing you with Silver and Golden Supporter Certificates with unique numbers and dates which will be in our database as long as Sunday Robotics survives.

Because of the Kickstarter rules we can't say much but if Sunday Robotics succeeds, these certificates will bring you much more than these rewards! We promise!

I'd like to share our experience with Kickstarter applications.

I've sent our complaints to Kickstarter Support about Kickstarter agencies and they replied superfast with a detailed explanation and support. They investigated our webpage and the info in Kickstarter pageg and I think they liked our project (Kickstarter page is finished there ready for their approval). But there are so much to do for us to do the promotion of our campaign.

Let me guess - those are the ones wanting you to pay them to provide the list facilities?

Don't know about anyone else, but if I were on your list you'd be already in my spam trap and I'd make a point of ignoring your kickstarter (or, indeed, anything else you did). IMO, you want a single big hit on the internet's consciousness right as the stuff becomes available - having a persistent presence over weeks or months, and particularly without necessary info like prices, just inoculates your potential clients against you so they're tired and pissed with you before you've even got the product in front of them.

Thanks for the contribution @dunkemhigh.. We've put lots of efforts developing ProBUDDY Kits, we'd like to have a success in Kickstarter. Do you have any suggestions?

I'm sorry I don't know how to market effectively (otherwise I'd be rich), but what you've posted here (and particularly the latest stuff) is good. You just don't want to wear people out prematurely.

Personally, Kickstarter works for me when I stumble across a project. Perhaps a post here sends me off to there, or there is a mention somewhere on the web and I am intrigued. At that point I want to know what it is, what I get, and (this is really important) how much it will cost me. I will either buy it there and then or forget about it completely.

I believe you have a period when the project is live and people can place orders. That's the time to push it in the various ways (posting somewhere like this, 'influencers', etc). I think many of your sales will be opportunistic, so give people the opportunity to actually place an order. You'll even have people that order in a fit of interest and then have second thoughts but can't be bothered to retract the order - admittedly, not many but you've lost those by  pushing too soon, I think.

Dear @dunkemhigh thanks for the thoughts. You are right, I think campaign creators are feeling pressure to gather large audience right before the campaign. Kickstarter algorithm brings projects that do well in the first hour and first day.

I didnt push any emails to anyone yet :) Was just kindly sharing updates here under this little topic, I started asking help under the posts but ok I'll only write the webpage adress then :)

You are the best contributor of our topic here, would you like a Gold or a Silver Supporter Certificate?

That's very generous of you, thanks, but without knowing the price of the kits I don't know if I'm in the market for one :)

I know this is my first post so it's a little weird, but Jon from Undercover Electrics is a friend/co-worker of mine and lead me here. Jon brought his ProBuddy into work the other day and I was really impressed with how nice it was, the finish on the board is really good and looks like it will hold up well to many years of use. All the little magnet base holders where really nice, but maybe a little over the top with all the size markings. I'm not really sure what the value is of all the size markings on the holders? The option to 3d print parts for this (supported by the manufacture) gives you even more options, plus you're not buying parts you aren't going to use!

The two parts I would like to see all the boards get are the lifter pins and 3rd hands (Jon's didn't come with them).

I was a little disappointed that they pushed the Kickstarter back but I get it, waiting for the launch on the 1st. I will be one of the first to support and if the time lines up it will be in the first hour.

Thank you so much! Its an honor to see a professional friend of our Customer No:1 Jonathan sees the ProBUDDY Kit and gives the crowd positive feedback! He told me that you are a harness and electronics builder for racing teams? Awesome, I really want to get in contact with you.

So.. TODAY (01 February) is the day! We would be glad if you come to Kickstarter at 10am EST (6pm GMT+3) and back our ProBUDDY Kits project!

Here is the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sundayrobotics/probuddy-kits-build-carry-store-your-projects-easily



Guys I was blocked recently but today I can write, that is strange, there might be a mistake. But also there is a chance that these can also be my last words again :) So, what I want to tell you is that I am and the whole Sunday Robotics team is thankful to you for your patience with us, the support you provide, for over 9000 views on this topic. We, Sunday Robotics will be developing cool robotic systems and will be sharing the tools, techniques and codes we developed for ourselves with the crowd.

Stay motivated, stay healthy. There are great tech people among you, I hope we would find chance to work together someday. My email is salih@sundayrobotics.com. Take care!
