“It's hard to believe that in just a few months businesses will be able to use general advertisements to announce that they are looking for investors without penalty”, said a joyful Lisa Lamb, SeedVo Incorporated's chief executive officer. “This is a positive step for American business and InvestRelease.com will assist companies by providing an advertisement platform for their solicitation requests.”
InvestRelease.com offers both free and paid listing options. Free releases are posted within twenty four hours on the site and includes one activated link to the advertiser's website. Premium clients can add images and video to their releases and receive enhanced features and social media promotion. InvestRelease.com is a general advertising and solicitation website for businesses. InvestRelease.com is not a broker, funding portal or crowdfunding site.
“We've had people contact us because they were confused and thought that we were a crowdfunding site, broker or funding portal operating before the SEC regulation”, Lamb says. “This is not the case. We are just an advertising platform for startups and businesses to announce their products or services and soon we will be able to allow them to announce their requests for funding. We only charge for our advertising fees. We do not offer any advice, endorse any of our advertisers, nor do we engage in any of their agreements or interactions. We are simply an advertising platform like any other media, but we are designed for the general solicitation provisions of the new law.”
InvestRelease.com is currently operating as the site allows businesses to announce their products and services to build traffic by links and anchor keywords. Currently, the site only accepts funding request advertisements from international businesses. The site will post general advertising and general solicitations from U.S. businesses beginning July 5, 2012, when businesses will be able to place news announcements, (also called “IRs”), on the site that they are seeking investors. InvestRelease will also give businesses an advertising medium to assist with their crowdfunding campaigns next year.
“InvestRelease.com will help startups reach a broad internet audience for their funding requests and crowdfunding campaigns”, says Eric Hill, SeedVo Incorporated's chief operations officer. “It takes time to build a following on social media and the crowdfunding sites will be filled with new ventures after their section of the law goes into effect in nine months. Businesses that use crowdfunding will also be able to announce their campaigns on InvestRelease.com for additional exposure.”
InvestRelease.com services are priced for a small business startup or entrepreneur's budget. Free listings on the site include one link to the advertiser's website. Premium or featured listings offers more features including photos, videos, additional links and anchor keywords.
“We wanted to make our services affordable to the small business owner. The JOBS Act opens doors to raise capital, but not all startups have the advertising budgets to reach investors to find capital. Some crowdfunding sites have popularity meters for showing top campaigns, and businesses listing their crowdfunding campaign on InvestRelease.com will have another advertisement working in their favor to raise the meter”, says Lamb.
In honor of the JOBSAct, InvestRelease.com has a special offer for advertisers during the 90 day waiting period for SEC deregulation of general solicitation. For a limited time the site is offering a promotional code that is good for unlimited premium news releases for one year for $250.00. The site recommends businesses send at least two keyword anchored premium IR's a month help increase their website traffic and by taking advantage of their JOBS Act special they can save over $300 per year on the site's advertising rates.
“It's a good idea for some businesses to establish an internet presence and grow their website traffic before they seek funding”, Lamb says, “The special allows unlimited premium postings which include photos, video, links and anchor keywords to promote your product or service, and could possibly increase sales which could make your projected ROI more intriguing to potential investors when you place your general solicitation.”
The JOBS Act special on InvestRelease.com is available for a limited time. Promotional codes are ready for use as soon as they are received. The promotional code may only be used by the purchaser and is valid for one year from the date purchased.
InvestRelease.com is a service of SeedVo Incorporated, which also owns SeedVo.com. The company is located in Atlanta, Georgia. SeedVo Incorporated is dedicated to providing entrepreneurs and businesses with an advertising and informative platform to reach potential investors under the new provisions of the JOBS Act.
