Cinsay Promotes Crowdfunding Projects and Provides Branded Merchandise for Social Entrepreneurs

Austin, TX, Nov 15, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- Cinsay, a leader in social video commerce technology, is also playing a part with Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, and From filmmakers and artists to inventors and social entrepreneurs, people are coupling their microfunding efforts with Cinsay's Smart Store(TM) platform to extend their reach on the web and to increase revenues with on demand, branded merchandise that's built right into the video player.

According to Kickstarter, 44% of listed projects are successful. That's pretty good statistics for anyone who knows about funding a business or nonprofit. Add to that, Cinsay's technology where some merchants are experiencing conversion rates as high as 10% for actions taken within the video, and users can potentially increase the effectiveness and reach even more.

One Kickstarter campaign launched by the Polyphonic Spree has almost reached its $100,000 goal for a 2013 tour and DVD documentary project. The band added Cinsay's Smart Store(TM) video to their promotion early in the campaign. The video pitch also links viewers directly to their page while also offering instant gratification to fans with branded, high quality merchandise. Shirts, iPhone and iPad covers can be purchased directly inside the video. The purchase for the customized products is handled through Cinsay's backend merchant account where buyers can use credit card or PayPal to complete the purchase. Cinsay On Demand then creates the selected product 'on demand', then sends the buyer an email along with shipping & tracking information. So while fans are waiting for the Kickstarter swag to arrive, which can be months after the campaign ends, they can be enjoying merchandise within a few days.

This marketing approach also works for writers and filmmakers. Tanner McEnroy, writer of "War of Wings", just added Cinsay to his fundraising project. Tanner also selected some of his story designs to be featured on merchandise for sale in his Smart Store. The project's store is featured on the recently launched shopping portal, MyCinsay and can be shared by his supporters onto social sites like Facebook and twitter. Even if Tanner's project doesn't reach his Kickstarter goal, he can still make money with each sale of branded items and create additional marketing for the book.

Promote. Fund. Sell.

This month, Cinsay is offering Kickstarter and other microfunding users a free Cinsay On Demand account. Users simply upload their existing promotion video along with customized artwork for the merchandise and a link-back to their funding site. "This is a tremendous opportunity for anyone who's Crowdfunding for any project", said Christian Briggs, Founder and CEO of Cinsay. "Cinsay and MyCinsay recognizes and celebrates Global Entrepreneur Week by offering people the world's first and best, fully turnkey video commerce platform for free to anyone wanting to launch their own business or project. It's simply the best way to promote, fund raise and sell", he added.

Each Smart Store(TM) account comes with it's own web landing page, embeddable video player, SEO and keywords, store description, comments section, social media share icons and a robust backend CMS analytics tool so merchants can measure the effectiveness of their Cinsay platform and continue to optimize it.
