Another Friday, another update!
First I want to thank you all so much for your encouraging words last week. I will continue to focus on making a good quality product even though that will take just a bit more time (but not too much time!)
Project status update
Still 96% of the Pledge Manager surveys have been completed!
At the end of this month I will lock the Pledge Manager. After that point changes can only be made through contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Before the fulfillment I will send everyone a quick check to let me know if your address information is still correct.
As mentioned last week I spoke with three sourcing agents and mailed with a few more.
All of them understood and were familiar with the challenges I'm facing;
All of them have people in the Netherlands whom I can visit and speak Dutch with;
All of them have people in China on their payroll that speak the Chinese language and understand the culture;
And all of them were very clear and transparant in communication.
So it will be a tough choice based on price, experiences with similar products, and size/reach of the company. I think this project is now in a much better situation than previous week and as soon as all the offers by the sourcing agents are finalized I can start working with one of them and know the final planning.
Expectations for the next few weeks
I will receive and review the offers from various sourcing agents.
Hall of Fame
At the end of this month I will start working on the Hall of Fame for the dUltimate dice page as promised. That's only a few days away. Though, I will prioritize anything related with the sourcing agents to keep the overall project moving!
Keep on rolling!
