Kickstarter Fell Short But Project Continues

The Kickstarter campaign to help fund the PM City project fell short of its funding target. PM City is my interactive PMP certification course that incorporates animations, interactive lessons, videos, user controls, quizzes, discussion boards, games, and more. Gaining the funding would have made getting the course out to market easier. Nevertheless, the project is going forward!

The full release is slated for the end of January. One of the options I presented in the Kickstarter campaign was a beta version of the course for only $99. The full release of the course will have a list price of $720 USD. Even though the Kickstarter did not succeed, I did want to honor those who supported me by selecting the beta course pledge. As such, I am extending this offer to anyone that would like to get in early. To take advantage of this offer, go to The Crowd Training’s store and grab one of the limited beta spots here: https://www.thecrowdtraining.com/product-page/pmp-interactive-course-pre-order

Those able to grab the $99 beta offer get early access to the course. As additional thank you for supporting the PM City project, those beta users also receive a full 3 month subscription to PM City based on the 6th edition of the PMBOK post release.

Thanks again to everyone’s kind words and support. I have spent months on this project and there are only a couple more until release. I really think you will be impressed with PM City when it is finished. I am quite excited! I shall post some highlights of the final product in future blogs and on my YouTube page.

A few days into the Kickstarter campaign for the 6th edition interactive online project management course and things are going well. Already 10% has been raised.

I am extremely excited to get this project launched and the end product out into the world. Thanks to all those supporting!

Kickstarter Project Launching Tomorrow!

approved

Kickstarter.com has approved my project submission. After a couple weeks working on the messaging and the layout, I finally thought it was ready for review yesterday around 6p. This morning I received notification that Kickstarter has approved it. All that remains is hitting LAUNCH! So nervous.

Think I am going to wait until tomorrow to hit launch. Tonight is Halloween. A big holiday for myself and my 5 young kids. Don’t want to be distracted by any emails or communications needing my immediate attention. There may be none, but just in case, I would rather be in a position to respond. While trick-or-treating (hopefully not in the snow we had this morning) I don’t want to have to try to type an email on my phone while the kids are anxious to get to the next house to add to their loot.

Launching tomorrow will give me time to think about who to notify about the project and where else I can spread the word. The campaign is for 30 days. Crossing fingers I meet my goal. If not, it will be a good experience. Something to blog about.
