Crowdfunding & Security Token Offering (STO) Marketing Services
- STOs are legally complex and costly, therefore it’s paramount to understand the market and know what customers & investors are looking for BEFORE you invest in designing your security and developing your technical structures
- It’s the combination of a great product & marketing that will lead to buzz and subsequent investments
- Founding teams could miss out on marketing opportunities to achieve greater sales of tokens, mostly due to poor product / community fit, low quality campaign assets, uncoordinated execution and poor visibility on digital channels
Our STO Marketing Services
Our Step-by-Step approach is developed in a way to reduce the risk of financial exposure, whilst validating the offering & gathering investor contacts at each step of the process.
- Assessment & Marketing Strategy Workshop
A thorough assessment of the STO and product, and preparation of a bespoke marketing roadmap with a unique sales message and story.
- Before public sale
Launch of the marketing to validate and refine marketing rollout plan, ideally first investor leads & commitments achieved in this phase.
- Public sale
Start your public sale with a splash to get those early contributions and keep the momentum going.
- Investor relations
Combine your great online marketing with our investor relation services to increase your presence on the ground and access investors.
