Any entrepreneur or aspiring start-up founder knows just how critical crowdfunding can be to your success. The statistics on the crowdfunding industry are massive: about 6.5 million campaigns were funded around the world last year, and the industry raked in more than $17 billion dollars in just North America. If you’re an entrepreneur or sitting on an idea for a startup, you’re probably thinking about how you can take advantage of crowdfunding. Despite it being an accessible industry, it can actually be challenging to stand out from the pack. That’s why we decided to discuss the state of the crowdfunding industry with Matt Green, who cofounded Ideazon, the #1 crowdfunding agency. He’s giving his expert advice on the industry and sharing some of his pro tips.
Matt, tell us about your background.
I’ve been working in fundraising and marketing for many years, before crowdfunding and Ideazon existed. Back in 2012, I was helping entrepreneurs in the startup scene in Los Angeles generate their funds by raising venture capital. That’s the “old school” way of raising funds at this point. My strategies have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs launch crowdfunding campaigns around the world. And now, I’m bringing all of that experience to Ideazon.
Why do you think entrepreneurs should work with Ideazon?
The crowdfunding market is exploding in size, and to be frank, it’s becoming oversaturated. There’s a very low barrier of entry to just launch any old project, which is great on one hand, because it makes entrepreneurship much more accessible. But on the other hand, it means that you as the entrepreneur have to do more work to stand out from your competitors. And if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s too easy to get lost in the shuffle.
What does Ideazon do for its entrepreneurs?
We really run your crowdfunding campaign from start to finish, maximizing your chances of reaching or surpassing your fundraising goals. We also have an expert marketing team, which helps us showcase your product in the best possible way. And we have an expert video production team, which helps us produce high-quality video assets, which is crucial for grabbing people’s attention.
What is the team behind Ideazon like?
We’re all like-minded in the sense that we’re all entrepreneurs at heart, and know what it takes to get an idea or a startup off the ground. Most of us have worked in this area in some shape or form for years, and we bring a collective wealth of experience to the table. I always say, what’s the point in coming up with an amazing idea if you launch a dud of a campaign? When entrepreneurs choose to partner with us, they’re getting all of this expertise in their corner.
