How to add 10,000 new shareholders

Is it possible to use investor relations marketing campaigns to attract 10,000 new shareholders?

Yes, says Bill Kaitz of Promethean Marketing with the caveat that there are good & bad ways to go about marketing a public company.

How CEOs use LinkedIn to engage investors

LinkedIn is used by over 800 million professionals worldwide who use it to expand their business networks and build their careers.

Of all the social media platforms LinkedIn is one of the only places you can specifically search out and find investors of all stripes.

As Seth Farbman points out in this conversation, “Historically the way for CEOs and management teams to get in front of investors was to go to a conference… but imagine you could give a TED talk to 5,000 of your perfect target audience five days a week.” 

That’s the analogy of the size of opportunity that intelligent use of LinkedIn can deliver to management teams.

Episode 1: The Race to Build the “Amazon” of online capital raise

Equity crowdfunding – both with a CF raise and the larger Regulation A and Regulation A+ vehicles – are big part of the digital transformation of capital markets.

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS ACT) created the sector in order to help more companies raising capital and allow main street investors more direct access to private markets.

Once the policy opened the door it was up to entrepreneurs, like today’s guest, to actually build the infrastructure to allow the equity crowdfunding space to flourish.

In the process something remarkable happened – capital raise began to merge with ecommerce marketing models.

And that part of the equity crowdfunding revolution is having dramatic impacts. Here at Media Meets Markets we believe the full opportunities this merging of digital marketing and capital markets are grossly underestimated.
