AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2014) - Front Page PR (http://www.crowdfundingPRcampaigns.com) announced a new low-cost crowdfunding training class that will provide non-profits, economic development, Meetup groups and government agencies such as the Small Business Administration (SBA) with the basic training materials needed to begin educating entrepreneurs, veterans, startups, small businesses, high schools, junior colleges, universities and employment agencies on how to use crowdfunding to eradicate unemployment by facilitating new businesses and creating new jobs throughout the United States.
For only $300 per year, licensees will receive the training materials needed to launch a crowdfunding advocacy training program in their community. The low price point should allow crowdfunding educators and experienced public speakers to break even on the very first class by charging attendees $25 or more to attend the seminar.

"Most Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) charge an average of $49 per class to attend classes on how to write a business plan, how to get a bank loan, how to seek venture capital, or how to seek alternative financing to start up a small business," said Robert Hoskins, Front Page PR's Director of Crowdfunding Campaigns. "At this price tag, our Crowdfunding Training Program will only take six paying customers to fund a full year's subscription. After the initial cost, training 20 people per month at $49 would generate approximately $11,460 per year in revenue."
Front Page PR will provide free Crowdfunding Training Class Workshops for instructors who want to provide the Crowdfunding Training Class, but have no knowledge of the crowdfunding industry or experience in teaching their communities how to launch successful crowdfunding campaigns. In addition, the workshops will include free press release templates and teach instructors how to utilize cost-effective PR/media relations programs to raise awareness for the classes within the local community.
Front Page PR's Crowdfunding Seminar materials include:
- How to Plan a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign
- How to Conduct a Crowdfunding Competitive Analysis
- How to Shoot a Crowdfunding Pitch Video
- How to Write a Persuasive Crowdfunding Profile
- How to Offer Effective Perks & Rewards
- How to Set Up a Realistic Fundraising Goal
Even Fortune 500 corporations can get involved. Many large companies such as IBM have launched intranet crowdfunding programs to incentivize their employees. Crowdfunding campaigns can be used as an excellent research and development tool. Internal crowdfunding campaigns can be used to fast track great business ideas upward to management based on employee support, which completely bypasses the typical roadblocks that thwart innovation.
