Investors are likely to make their decisions relatively quickly and, therefore, we recommend that the companies seeking crowdfunding launch their capital marketing campaigns today, so they will be first on the block when the rules take effect.
South Bend, IN (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
Crowdfunding will become the next “big thing” when it comes to raising business capital in America --- and it will be a boon particularly for small companies and start-ups.
But when it comes to being chosen by investors for funding, will small businesses and start-ups have what it takes to stand out in the crowd? Those who seek help from Ugly Dog Media, Inc. will.
After many years of experience successfully marketing small businesses locally, nationally and globally, Ugly Dog Media is launching its “Small Business Crowdfunding Jumpstart” service. Ugly Dog Media’s crowdfunding jumpstart will help small businesses and start-ups get noticed by the smart investors who conduct research to determine which companies are worthy investments.
In addition, Ugly Dog Media has developed http://www.crowdfundingjumpstart.com, the “must-see” site --- chock full of valuable information, tips and video tutorials --- for small businesses and start-ups planning to pursue crowdfunding.
Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) can capitalize on crowdfunding, which has been legalized in America through the ground-breaking JOBS Act. Simply put, the JOBS Act will allow small and start-up businesses to use crowdfunding to attract capital investment of up to a million dollars, with individual investors able to contribute up to $2,000 each, or up to 5% of their income up to $100,000.
"The capital market has, in recent years, been all but locked to small businesses," said Ugly Dog Media’s President, Dan Blacharski, who has many years of business marketing and investor-based marketing experience. "The availability of crowdfunding changes the equation, finally opening the door and letting ordinary businesspeople have a seat at the table."
Crowdfunding already has a successful track record outside of America --- and in America strictly for funding charitable and creative projects, per law. Now, this funding format is legal for raising business capital in America. The details and final rules for crowdfunding should be in place by the end of this year.
But leaders of small businesses and start-ups should get ready for the crowdfunding wave long before the end of 2012. It will take more than simply listing a request on a crowdfunding site to get the attention of crowdfunding investors, Blacharski said.
“Investors are likely to make their decisions relatively quickly and, therefore, we recommend that the companies seeking crowdfunding launch their capital marketing campaigns today, so they will be first on the block when the rules take effect," Blacharski added. “Many companies that want the best chance at rapid crowdfunding have already started assembling their information packages and marketing campaigns; and crowdfunding platforms are already lining up potential investors.”
