Crowdfunding campaigns offer entrepreneurs, startups and growing businesses a new way to build online Crowdfunding profiles that allow them describe their business plan, post videos and share pictures of products they want to bring to market. In return for donations, Crowdfunders offer the first production run of products, perks and some other type of reward.

Once profiles are built, Crowdfunding campaign managers (Crowdfunders) are given a tiny URL that allows them to share their profile with their existing network of social media contacts on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Meetup, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, etc. Crowdfunders ask their contacts to help them raise money by forwarding the tiny URL to their extended social circles. Fans that like the new products or perks offered donate money to the cause via the online profile.

"Not only is Crowdfunding a good way to raise money from people they know, but it is a great way to propagate marketing messages through social networks where great products can go viral," said Robert Hoskins, Front Page PR's Director, Crowdfunding PR. "It is a very simple, but effective way to pre-sell products in order to raise enough money to get a startup company off the ground. They pay no interest on the money they receive and give up no control of the company. It's a win-win situation for everyone."
