We hope to bring you along the grind.
The grind is real. This is not a sob story. We want you to be a part of the journey.
Days before the project was suppose to launch with no warning Shopify took down our website. They wouldn't tell us why they blocked our website. We had built out the whole site and it was ready for the launch. Crazy thing thing is we have had another Shopify site for over two years. We moved providers and started from ground zero.
Two days after launching the Project on Kickstarter we ran two small ads. One on Facebook and one on Instagram. We have a limited budget(about $5 a day) so this was a stretch. But we believe in the product so we dove in. Both ads were approved and ran for 2-3 days. The response was positive so we attempted to run another ad on both platforms. Both Instagram and Facebook blocked our ads. Apparently we are promoting "weapons" which is wrong and sad because now we are blocked from advertising.
here are the screen shots of the websites
