We are at Disrupt and THUNDERING!May 6, 2015Greetings from TC Disrupt NY,
We are here and we are thundering to over 1 million people ... 1 million people - still can't believe it! We really hope that through this we have set a precedent and opened up discussion in this space. And others will do much bigger things following up from here.
As promised in the last update - here is our small surprise for you. We welcome you to MysteryClub!
- MysteryClub membership is for our absolute dearest supporters and comes with FREE TOYS FOR LIFE!
- You get Crescendo and all future toys - free worldwide delivery and all.
- What's more is you get to be a part of designing the next-generation pleasure experiences.
- So, all toys for life, twice - during the design stage so they can feedback and the final version of course.
We will reach out to all of you individually via the social media you supported us with as we don't have your emails.
Please keep sharing the Thundering message on your social media so it continues to Thunder for a while and please share the word about our crowdfunding campaign - another first where the platform actually featured us on their homepage!
Thanks once again so very much, you guys are ... simply the best!
P.S. We are on FastCompany!
Week 3 and we have done it!May 1, 2015Greetings all,
It's Week 3 and ... we have just crossed both our targets, 200+ supporters with a 1m+ in social reach! It's just the most incredible feeling to have gotten here with 1 week to spare. We can't thank you enough - so we have a delightful surprise for you - but more on that next week ;)
We have some more exciting news as well! We got selected to the Top 200 (out of 1600) startups at next month's Pioneers Festival. Now all is we need is your votes - lots of it to get to the top - and be allowed to present our taboo-breaking vision on stage! If you want to support us, simply go to this link, find our logo and click on 'Support' :)
In the mean time, we are getting ready for Disrupt NY starting on Monday. If anyone is around in NY and would like to meet up just ping us an email at hello@MysteryVibe.com and we will make it happen.
Thanks once again so very much, We still can't believe we made it!
Week 2 and we just got selected to exhibit at Pioneers, Vienna!April 22, 2015Greetings all,
It's Week 2 and we have some really exciting news! We got selected to exhibit at Pioneers Festival in Vienna, Austria! It's from 28-29 May so if any of you are coming, please drop in as we would love to show you Crescendo.
We are super excited as we have been pitching to them for a month we finally got a YES - a first for an adult toy to be exhibited there! More venues to add to our disruption to do list :)
Thanks so much for all your support, have a great week!
Day 11 and we are on 90%!April 18, 2015It's Day 11 and we just got to 90% and crossed the 600k reach! It's incredible that it took only 3 days to go from 500k to 600k, especially given how close we are now to the finish line.
We also have some really exciting news - We have been approved to exhibit at the Hardware Alley at this year's Techcrunch Disrupt NY. We believe it will be the first time ever that a pleasure product has been approved to exhibit at Disrupt! We will be there from 04-06 May, exhibiting on the 6th. If you are coming, please drop in as we would love to show you Crescendo.
As this campaign has garnered so much support, we want to add our bit to amplify it further. We spoke to Thunderclap and have set the date for the message broadcast to 04 May to coincide with the launch of Disrupt. We hope this will help us drive media attention to this work and start a real disruption to all things taboos :)
Thanks so much for being awesome and have a wonderful weekend!
Day 10 and time for stretch goalsApril 17, 2015It's Day 10 and we are getting very close to the 600k reach! It was only 2 days back that we had just crossed 500k - as the momentum continues to build we think that our dream stretch goal of 1m could be a real possibility!
After all if we make it to that special figure the campaign will set a real precedent of what can be achieved against all conventional wisdom when you have the backing of the most awesome crowd.
Thanks for being that awesome crowd!
Day 9 - It's the 80 - 20 Rule :)April 16, 2015It's Day 9 and we just crossed the 80% mark. With only 20% to go, the finish line seems so close now!
As we get closer to the finish line, we wanted to show you some behind-the-scenes footage. Some of you will have seen it on our About Us page but for the others, here is a snippet of our story behind creating MysteryVibe - Video.
Thanks once again for being so awesome!
Day 8 and 500k reach crossed!April 15, 2015Day 8 and we just crossed the magical half-million mark! When we reached our last big milestone of crossing 400k, we wondered if were at all possible that the momentum will hold up and we will get the next 100k after all.
And here we are, the journey keeps getting more and more exciting every day. Now what remains to be seen is whether we will finish with 1m+ in social reach and really set a precedent for everyone to use in the near future.
A massive thanks to everyone once again for your support.
Day 7 and 1st page in our category!April 13, 2015It's Day 7 and we already made it to the first page in our category and that too with the greatest social reach amongst them. Maybe Thunderclap will feature us in their 'select shortlist' after all!
Who knew Mondays could be so much fun :) Thank you all so very very much!
Halfway there and it's just Day 6!April 12, 2015It's Day 6 and we are halfway there already with a good few days left before our campaign mid-point. Setting aside the numbers and looking back at the past 6 exhilarating days, we realised that we are really fortunate to be a part of something far more valuable than just a small social experiment.
All our supporters added their social voice to something that was really intimate and personal and by doing so they gave the campaign real life. It took shape and grew rapidly from the very beginning.
When we started we never expected to cross the 100k mark, let alone be near half a million - but here we are. We hope that, this will act as a precedent and help pave the way for others in this space to do something even bigger in the near future.Thanks once again for all your support and have a wonderful start to the week :)
Day 5 with 100+ supporters from 6 Continents!April 12, 2015It's Day 5 and the most beautiful thing we noticed amongst our awesome supporters is their diversity, coming from all walks of life and far flung cities.
- North America: USA, Canada
- South America: Brazil, Columbia
- Europe: UK, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, France, Belarus, Romania
- Asia: China, India, Maldives, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia
- Australia: Australia
- Africa: Ghana
With such diversity we hope that our campaign can truly help spread the word globally and get more people taking control of their own pleasures. Thanks once again for all your support, have a wonderful weekend :)
Feeling hyper-connected ... with 400k+ people!April 10, 2015Day 4 and this is getting really exciting now! We just crossed the 400k reach, can't believe it's only been 4 days - seems like an eternity has passed since we started our small movement.
Who knows we might even cross the half-million mark :). Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you once again for being so awesome.
Racing past the 175k+ reach in 72 hours!April 9, 2015We are completely overwhelmed by all your support. What started as a small social experiment has completely exceeded all our expectations.
We just zoomed past the magical 175k reach and it hasn't yet been 72 hours! We can't wait to see what lies in store next :)
Thank you all so very very much!
20% reached and it's not yet 48 hours!April 8, 2015Omg we just reached the 20% mark with a good few hours to go before the 48 hour mark! We are so chuffed and extremely grateful for all your support.
Who knows we might even get featured on Thunderclap's homepage soon :). Thank you all so very very much!
10% crossed in 24 hours!April 7, 2015The first ever pleasure empowerment campaign in the history of Thunderclap is off to a rocking start!
