Let's face it, every other company out there and especially CrowdFundBeat needs you to write and create content... for little to nothing.

Crowdfunding is not a relatively new concept, however it has undergone a meteoric rise in the media through projects raising $5.7 million (Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars) and over $3 million (Zach Braff) on Kickstarter.

This industry is slated to grow to over $3 Billion dollars in 2013 as predicted by Deloitte and $5 Billion from other sources.

CrowdFundBeat is at the forefront of news media for this emerging industry. We are the only news and information portal specific to the crowdfunding industry, and most importantly, we know everyone who is a key player. Our sister, Silicon Valley CrowdFund Ventures recently hosted a Crowdfunding Conference which featured the same people working with the SEC to finish drafting the laws of the JOBS Act. We treat our friends well, and help the industry by bring together platforms, communities, and crowdfunders.

This is a call to all writers and bloggers. Brand your name in an infant industry while you can. Pretty soon the market will become diluted by thousands of writers all looking for a piece of the pie. Write articles and opinion pieces, and use CFB to substantiate your name in the industry. We have at our disposal companies sending us PR Releases, and people in London and Canada working hard. Come along with us, as Crowdfunding continues to disrupt industries worldwide.
