The Interest Check – A History

Part 1 of the Interest Check 

The initial interest check was to find out colour schemes that everyone liked.  We had a total of 126 votes and 11,500 switches pledged. Which is good but we can do better! For custom colouring we need to meet an MOQ of 20,000 switches!

Part 2 of the Interest Check 

The second part of the interest check was to narrow down the colour selection to three options. We had a total of 184 votes and 20,810 switches pledged. With this part of the IC only being up for 2 weeks this is an amazing outcome.

Results of the colour choice…

Option 1:   BLUE // PINK 49 Votes 26.6%
Option 2:  GREY // VIOLET 42 Votes 22.8%
Option 3:  WHITE // WHITE 93 Votes 50.5%
It is obviously a clear winner for the Ghost switch!

Pricing

To help us reach this MOQ I have negotiated a better price with Durock. I will be able to charge USD $0.60 (GBP £0.47) per switch, instead of the original price of USD $0.70 (GBP £0.54). 

I will also be offering FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING on all orders of 200 switches or more, this proved popular for my recent Koala GB. I hope people will use this offer to purchase 200 switches instead of 110. Which will help us reach the MOQ. There is no need for a coupon this time, if you add 200 switches to the basket you will automatically see the option for Free Shipping. This is for standard shipping only and will not be tracked.

Timeline

I am going to run this group buy for only 3 weeks as opposed to 5 weeks like my last few group buys. My recent group buys have had a lot of activity at the start and end with not much in the middle. So I am going to see if this is just a waste of time. My reasoning being that if we can get 20,000 switches in 2 weeks of an interest check I am confident we can hit MOQ in 3 weeks of a running Group Buy.
