Slick Crowdfunding Marketing: Is It Worth It?

What’s it worth?

Would you spend $499 to get $499 in your crowdfunding campaign?

A crowdfunding marketing firm is guaranteeing that it will insure that you get at least $499 in your Indiegogo account if you pay them $499 upfront.

Many crowdfunders know not to commence their campaign until they have secured pledges from friends and family to support their project that will give them an immediate bump upon opening of the campaign. That gets the momentum ball rolling. If you can’t find $500 in commitments before you open the doors, perhaps it’s not worth starting.
