24 days to go_Kickstarter Recovery Box Update #8


This link has an updated video  on progress with the Recovery Box Project

This is Issue Four of SUPER CRO Standard the charity supporting the development of the Recovery Box
We have reached the halfway point with the Kickstarter Recovery Box (RB) project , launched 36 days ago on Kickstarter and while it has started to raise awareness about the RB we have a little way to meet the funding goal of $10,881 .

To do that I will be starting to use Social Media promotion program Marketing Queen from tomorrow. https://marketingqueencfq.com/ io see if this approach make a difference

We now have 16 backers, 33 followers, the original video has been viewed  207 times and we have raised $1001 which is 9% towards our funding goal of $10,881. Project followers are people who have opted-in to be reminded about your project before it ends.
