The topic of Crowdfunding is gaining in popularity as the economic paradigm shifts and the idea of twinning the successful SDI (Self Directed Income) industry with the popular Crowdfunding movement is timely indeed. Yes, economic waves are rippling through the Crowdfunding community since the SDI industry has begun launching private, crowdfunding portals that can be easily accessed and activated by any individual with a cause or project.
As we progress in 2015, the most common entry level for any individual SDI entrepreneur or non-profit organization t o enrol and participate with their own Crowdfunding website is approximately a one time donation of $200.00 (US Funds ). There is speculation that Crowdfunding will raise $20+ billion - globally - in 2015 - based on the statistical trends of the past three years.
2014 - $10 Billion
2013 - $5.1 Billion
2012 - $2.6 Billion
Estimates from a variety of reputable sources predict that the annual market potential of this unique, crowdfunding movement could reach as high as $300 Billion by 2025.
The SDI (Self Directed Income) industry is otherwise referred to as MLM (Multi-Level Marketing), Network Marketing , Referral Marketing etc. The SDI industry has a proven track record after the Amway Corporation paved the way as the pioneer leader implementing this unique, sales and marketing model, during the 20th Century.
Crowdfunding is defined as the practice of inviting individuals to support another individual’s project or cause by gifting/donating small amounts of money. The key to successful crowdfunding is using the internet and the tools of the SDI industry to access large numbers of people by the click of a mouse. The Crowdfunding concept pernits others to help you raise funds for your projects/causes or dreams.
As of mid-2015, there are an abundance of Crowdfunding platforms (600+) functioning on the internet, globally - whereby tens of thousands of individuals from all over the world are seeking funds for projects or causes.
The philosophy behind crowdfunding is that those individuals with personal projects or causes have an opportunity to raise funds by implementing this proven model of marketing
Within the infrastructure of the SDI industry, the idea is to initially support the project or cause of your enroller - thereby embracing the true spirit of co-operation. Then, others who enrol will support your project or cause.
SDI.Crowdfunding initiatives can be local with a global vision to eventually usher in a usuryfree economic paradigm that will eventually lead to a New Age of UsuryFree Living where people experience optimal Health and Wellness everywhere on planet earth.
What would you do - if you had access to the money to do it? Would you make a $200. donation to another individual's project/cause and then qualify to get your own platform to solicit "crowdfunding?"
