Crowdfunding Expert > I help businesses, filmmakers & product designers with crowdfunding. Co-owner of Autopilotforlinkedin
Introduction

Do you have a film, motion picture, product or service that needs funding or media exposure? Are you interested in crowdfunding? If so, I can help.

As the founder and CEO of Crowdfunding Accelerator, I lead a team that does everything from concept to funding for entrepreneurs, business owners and filmmakers. With an emphasis on motion picture and film finance, we are experts at everything to do with crowdfunding. As an industry spokesperson, I produce five online crowdfunding magazines and was called upon to perform the marketing and promotion for the prestigious 1st & 2nd Annual Global Crowdfunding Conventions and Bootcamps.

Since the founding of my original marketing firm, I’ve worked with thousands of companies and established hundreds of relationships. I am able to reach more than 1.4 million journalists, radio & TV stations, bloggers, websites and more. 

Business owners, Indie filmmakers and Hollywood producers come with their ideas. We go from stage one planning and development to crowdfunding campaign management, marketing and media exposure promotions. With the end result, they are fully funded for their crowdfunding project with no out-of-pocket costs.

What sets us apart?

► No risk, as there are no upfront fees for our services.
► Close to 60% of crowdfunding projects fail, yet our projects succeed almost 100% of the time.
► We walk you through everything from the crowdfunding concept all the way through the final funding.
► When crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and IndieGoGo need help, they call on me for advice.

My entrepreneurial spirit is inspired by looking at current marketplace trends, identifying what is going to take off, and getting involved on the ground floor.

A few days ago I got together with two other social media and LinkedIn experts; Scott Offord (the creator of Autopilot for LinkedIn) and Kevin Thomas Tully (social media and social selling strategist), to videotape a Google Hangout discussing LinkedIn Profile Tips that will dramatically improve your LinkedIn profile, help others find your LinkedIn profile more easily and attract the type of buyers or prospects that you are looking to attract.

Your LinkedIn profile is your digital business card. You have one chance to get it right because you want others on LinkedIn to remember who your are and this is your opportunity to provide them a tangible piece of evidence that you exist and you want to make contact. So how do you move people from just checking out your profile to actually getting on a list? How do you convert them?

One of the best doctors and best services that I've ever dealt with. Dr DeAtkiine and his staff are available 24/7 and are prepared to handle any questions or emergencies. I've used their services for several years and have never considered any other doctor. It's great to be able to have your doctor on the phone within two minutes, should an emergency occur. I've even called him with an emergency while out of the country. It's almost impossible to get that level of service from 99% of the doctors out there. It's not cheap, but it's well worth.
