They have a slick website, claiming to have raised funds for several medium sized campaign. But their blog has not been updated in over a year: https://medium.com/crowdreach.

Red flag #1. Also, the reviews on their website are paragraphs that they wrote themselves. Red flag #2.

But they claim to be performance based, yet require money upfront. I find this to be a common theme with crowdfunding marketing agencies: they say one thing and do another. They all say performance based, and then require payment upfront. Can't trust em, can't work with em.

Yes I see. They all say the money upfront is required for ads... but then you never know what is spent on ads and what is not.
Through might and spirit we will prevail

Yeah I don't think there is such a thing as a person working for your for absolute $0 on the promise that you may or may not pay them.

Requiring even a cent upfront seems a bit scammy to me.

Another failed fraud attempt. My search for a free marketing service continues.

I don't see your investors listed on Angel List or CrunchBase. How are you able to afford to cover the costs of your clients advertisements then?

They must only work with small campaigns if they cover the cost of ads for them
