Today’s Quote

Today’s Tip

Continuing with this week’s theme of my favorite hidden benefits of crowdfunding, another great benefit is that you gain a built-in customer base.

When you get others to fund you via rewards-based Crowdfunding, you build a customer base. If you provide a good product or service, these customers will be prone to buy more products and services from you (the same products, upgrades and/or new products you develop) in the future.

Your customer base is an extremely important and valuable asset of your business and you could never build it too soon.
