You can use Crowdfunding for more than just funding!
(That is a direct quote plagiarized from this blog: http://www.crowdfundingblogs.com/crowdfunding/the-many-benefits-of-crowdfunding-5-ways-to-use-crowdfunding-for-more-than-just-funding/)
You can use a crowdfunding site as platform to build awareness for your product or service (as a marketing platform.)
You can use a crowdfunding site to test popularity; by seeing an actual representation of how many backers your project could have!
You can use a crowdfunding site to read consumer insight and make changes to your product or service in the development stage.
Basically, you can glean data from crowdfunding sites, to get more than just money for your start-up idea!
That’s a pretty cool idea.
