“Many people have great business ideas, although much of the time these dreams cannot be fulfilled due to lack of funding. BlessABuck was created to help bring dreams to life,” says Michael Durant, Creative Marketing Officer of BlessABuck. “We are people funding people. What makes us different, as a crowdfunding source is that every campaign matters; we also offer the business tools and strategic guidance to actually build and launch campaigns – even after the funds have been raised. Our goal is to provide a robust platform to help businesses and causes alike to grow and become successful.”

Starting a crowdfunding campaign on BlessABuck.com is free and easy. Users can log onto the website, create a profile and submit an idea for BlessABuck to review. Once BlessABuck has approved an idea, users can post a video and create campaign objectives and incentives.

In the launch phase, BlessABuck already has four live campaigns including a trip to Washington D.C. to visit historical monuments for Honor Flight Southern Nevada, a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all of their sacrifices. The campaign has received a significant amount of funds since its creation.

In 2012, more than $2.8 billion was raised through various crowdfunding platforms. According to an article at Forbes.com, this year global crowdfunding will double in annual revenue to $6 billion.

Crowdfunding is an innovative way to receive funds for an idea as the “crowd” determines which idea or campaign to “fund” by contributing a given amount of money. Funders can receive incentives for their contributions to a campaign based on a tier system. Campaigns remain live and active on the website for a set amount of time, usually 30-90 days.

BlessABuck focuses on four main types of campaigns:

• Creative developments such as music, fashion and film

• Tech campaigns such as apps/mobile, web and products

• Cause campaigns such as community, education and environment

• Entrepreneurial campaigns such as small business, food and sports
