Here’s What Funded Today Is All About

Hey entrepreneurs! Zach & Thomas here, founders of Funded Today, and if you have ever asked yourself:

  • “How can I get more pledges for my Kickstarter or Indiegogo project?”
  • “How can I determine who I should hire? I’m inundated with promises from marketers saying they’ll take my project to the moon!”
  • “How can I track what’s working and what’s not?”
  • “How can I revive my project when pledges have stalled or plateaued.”
  • “How can I make sure I’m doing everything to raise as much money as possible? Am I leaving money on the table?”

Or if you’ve ever just wanted some additional help with your Kickstarter or Indiegogo project….

…You’re in the RIGHT place!

Here’s How Funded Today Will Help You Raise More Money

Here’s the deal:

We believe smart entrepreneurs and business owners who want to raise LOTS of money, in the crowded marketplaces of Kickstarter & Indiegogo, must become master marketers, sales experts, and direct response gurus.

How can you possibly find the time to do this, while managing a crowdfunding campaign, working another full-time job, responding to customer support messages, developing your product, sourcing manufacturers, and raising your family?

Answer: You can’t!

And that’s where we come in. Instead of spending thousands of hours reading hundreds of books and blog articles, from so-called “experts,” wasting valuable time that you don’t have, as your crowdfunding campaign counts down, simply hire us.

Funded Today has raised million of dollars for Kickstarter and Indiegogo projects.
