How did we start OceanSpoken? A key to success when launching a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign.

Once upon a time in Bali...

Welcome to our digital paradise - the OceanSpoken journal! Here, we are excited to bring you an ocean of inspirations, insights, and stories that align with our love for sustainability, fashion, best beach adventures, and much more!

We are Val and Elena - best friends who love travelling to exotic destinations. Our trip to Bali in October of 2022 turned into a start of an exciting venture instead of just a vacation. We fell in love with Bali, its breathtaking beauty of the ocean, and the urgency to protect it. Witnessing the devastating impact of plastic pollution on the shores of Uluwatu has inspired us to create meaningful fashion out of ocean plastic.

It took us 6 months to source high-quality swimwear fabric made from recycled ocean plastic and partner with local artisan tailors to hand-sew the bathing suits. The next step was to raise enough funds for the first production run.

Why did we choose Kickstarter platform for our launch?

Kickstarter is a fantastic platform for launching a business for several reasons. First and foremost, it provides an opportunity to showcase an idea and gain support from a community of like-minded individuals. It allows for creators like ourselves to connect directly with potential customers and build a dedicated following even before the product is fully developed.

Kickstarter fosters a sense of community and engagement. Backers not only provide financial support but become part of the brand's journey. They become brand ambassadors, sharing the story and helping to spread the word about a business. This organic promotion can lead to wider exposure and a loyal customer base.

Kickstarter serves as a valuable market validation tool. By launching a campaign on the platform, you can gauge the interest and demand for your product. The feedback and insights you receive from potential customers can be invaluable in refining your offering and ensuring its success in the market.
