Yesterday I was struck by a pattern that emerged from the first few e-mails I wrote. Each of them was a response to the following person:
- a new retailer in Australia
- a co-worker in Denmark
- a blogger in Iran
- a factory in China
- a game designer in Brazil
- an ambassador in Canada
Usually those locations wouldn’t even occur to me–such is the wonder of e-mail–but certain events of the past week have heightened my awareness and appreciation for the diversity and breadth of the board game industry.
Business has no borders. No matter your creed, race, gender, age, nationality, and sexual orientation, I want to sell to you and I’m happy to work with you. Regardless of the size, shape, or location of your table, it’s my goal to bring joy to it.
What can crowdfunders do to break down walls, barriers, and borders? Here are a few ideas:
- Offer worldwide shipping from a variety of regions. Here’s how.
- Translate instructions into a number of languages for digital download. Here’s how.
- Put yourself in someone else’s shoes when you’re preparing your project page. Here’s how.
How do you strive to reduce the borders for your crowdfunding campaigns and your business?
