Crowdfunding to Mentor Young People in Business

Maurice Watts is the owner of MAGNIFISCENTZ, an oil fragrances business. He wants to help teach young people how to have a business. He wants to create starter kits for them to begin and learn with. He will mentor them while they learn to focus on their business. Here’s what Maurice had to say about his Crowdfunding project.” Donations are needed to purchase a massive stock of oil fragrances which will be used to produce starter kits set for the starter programs, and a larger building to stock product, and to setup conference rooms to meet with young people to explain the business and starter program. All donations are very much appreciated.”

This has been on my heart for a while now and it seems like the right time to share it. I get 5 requests a day, sometimes more from people asking for Crowdfunding money for something personal. They can’t afford to pay for my help and they are desperate. They usually state that in all caps, that’s how I know. Here are 5 reasons why I do not give to Crowdfunding projects. I feel like I am always teaching how to get people to give and what makes you successful. But perhaps people need to see the other side too. Why I DON’T give:

1) I can’t confirm your story. When you say you are losing your house, or have a disease or need to fix your car, and I don’t know you personally, I have no way of knowing if that is true or not. I have no idea if you even know the person you claim to be raising money for. No matter how good your story is, without documentation, it means nothing. Read more

Reality TV is Great PR for Business

Is a uniform company interesting? If I asked you to watch a show a company that makes uniforms you would ignore me. However, a reality TV show, millions of people watched an executive from the company fumble around trying to work a real position there. The same company is trending on Google. That means the TV appearance is creating an interest in the business. How the capitalize on that will be an interesting questions. To have millions of people suddenly at our site and leave is a tragedy. You have to only hope that they are capturing some of that traffic.

300px-Donald_Trump_announcing_latest_David_Blaine_feat_3-altThe main reasons businesses participate on Donald Trump’s show is the publicity they will get. It’s a 1-hour commercial about their products and services. Not to mention the get access to some top executives who are looking for work. They can recruit while getting publicity! What people fail to realize is that those companies pay to be placed on the shows. There are companies that just work on product placements. It’s a huge industry. Because there are many similar products, a company will pay to have their product on a show instead of the competition. Sometimes it’s just about blocking the competition. Company X many realizes that if Company Z gets that kind of exposure, it could take them over the top. Reese’s pieces surpassed M&M’s when it appeared in the movie E.T. M&M was asked and said no. I wonder what happened to the executive that made that decision?

Reality TV gives attention to locations, as well as products. Trump Tower tours are up! People love to take pictures in front of the building and tell people they were there while in New York. Golf courses that get featured see more people after being on TV. Some are patrons who have a renewed desire to be on the course after seeing it on TV. Many are new people who are interested after seeing it on TV. Reality TV can also promote events. One of the Housewives visited her husband who was in a play. I do not think the play was still running when the episode aired, but it could still be considered good PR for the play and other actors involved.  Getting your jewelry or clothing line worn is easy. If you can get the attention of a star and give it to them, you could be lucky and have them wear it on a show. Then if they were asked about it, they would talk about your brand. Just give them the jewelry or clothes for free and you have a deal.
