How to Create a SoFund.us Campaign
How to Back (support) a SoFund.us Campaign
We think SoFund.us is monumental for the funeral profession for a few reasons and hope that you do too.
The power of crowdfunding: This new tool called crowdfunding has been making big waves recently by drastically changing the why startups and established companies purpose and launch new product and business ideas. The reason for crowdfunding’s growing popularity is pretty simple. It is a tool that allows you to tell your product story to a targeted audience and create believers and backers that now share in your idea. This makes something that could have been just a thought or dream become reality.
Transform product funding: We don’t know about you, but we are tired of seeing new companies and product debut at state and national funeral conventions each year only to find they are out of business a short time later because their product wasn’t well received by the profession. Wouldn’t it be great if these companies could create a buying customer base before ever launching? Or if they could test their idea to see if it would be well received by the profession before spending thousands on creating an already dead idea?
Sofund.us provides the only platform for funeral professionals and companies test market an idea and raise reward based funding to bring those ideas to market.
What kind of fundraising campaign would you like to see on SoFund.us?
Do you think you will Back a fundraising campaign?
