Business: Carbon Environmental Boutique
1. What made you decide to use Alberta BoostR?
Carbon Environmental Boutique was faced with a troubling issue. We needed a new organic make-up line fast, since our previous make-up line was discontinued in North America. Without the time to properly plan for this eventuality, Alberta BoostR was a big help in getting us the finances we needed to launch the new product line.
2. How much was your goal, and how much did you raise?
Our goal was $2500, and we raised $2800
3. What were three things that worked well to help your campaign be successful?
Daily attention to our campaign was a must. When we were on it, creating buzz, launching new rewards, the donations rolled in.
4. Besides raising capital, were there any positive experiences that happened?
We met so many great people!! All the Alberta BoostR folks were so helpful and kind, plus we got to really connect with our community. Lots of hugs went out to our supporters:)
5. What has life been like after Alberta BoostR?
Ahhh… it has been great to have Santé make-up here in the store. Our customers love it! We had time to research it and assess it fully, knowing that the funds were secure. It is simply the loveliest make-up and we’re the only ones in Edmonton who offer it! Carbon thanks Alberta Boostr for the opportunity in helping us get it for our customers.
