On today’s episode, Kunle is joined by Michael Raven, Founder of Blazon Agency, a future-oriented brand launch agency specialising in crowdfunding campaigns in the UK and Europe.

On this show, we often highlight the massive growth in eCommerce over the last year or so. We are all indoors, so we all shop online. But this hasn’t just increased the number of shoppers online. This has also had another effect that could easily go unnoticed.

Not only are there more online shoppers, there are also many more shoppers willing to buy unique and never-seen-before products. Yes, this means the crowdfunding market is booming. This is no longer a niche where far-sighted shoppers come to find innovative products. This is now a thriving market full of people looking for something “different”. Crowdfunding is now a lucrative avenue for both new and established brands.

In this episode, Kunle and Michael talk about what it takes to plan and launch a successful crowdfunding campaign. You will get to hear about which products are best suited to crowdfunding, how established brands can use it and the mechanics of pre-launch and post-launch marketing . This is a great episode for anyone wanting to know more about crowdfunding!
