That was the question I was going to ask next. Myself nor my company Breck Adventure tours can not front the money. We are in the middle of buying another rafting company so we can be on the Ark next year.Who's putting up the startup $? Seems like that is what will drive the timeline.
If you have the time to devote to do a sweet project like this, get someone to front the money, sell advertising, ship it off, then ship 'em out, by all means - have at it. Unfortunately, I do not, realistically, thus the 2013 suggestion. I think it would be a pity to take a great idea and throw anything less than 100% into it. I will have much more time this spring to devote some quality attention to it - and certainly have it done in time to sell to the masses at events like, oh....let's say....BAILEY FEST 2012!!! and other venues.55 days until the first of the year
10 days for photo submission
10 days for voting on the photos
3-5 days for Dana to design the calender if he is willing
4-8 days for printing per Gotprint.com
1-2 days to ship to most M.B. purchasers.
That puts calenders in hand around Christmas time!
First off Eric, Its obvious that you are jumping on the bandwagon simply to promote your business or you're unemployed. Probably both.That was the question I was going to ask next. Myself nor my company Breck Adventure tours can not front the money. We are in the middle of buying another rafting company so we can be on the Ark next year.
I am willing to do all the work but can not put any money towards the startup cost! I would guess if we did 250 calenders around $2000.
One other thought we may be able to sell some advertising in the calender to help cover the cost. Probably not rafting companys but maybe CKS, Ten Mile, Confluence etc! 12 months 1 per page $100 or $150 would almost cover the cost!
Who likes to cold call?
