Crowdtilt, the most versatile technology platform connecting people and payments for group experiences, purchases and causes, today announced the availability of Sell Something, a new tool that empowers brands and individuals to pre-sell products or tickets to their networks through customized campaigns on Crowdtilt.com.
Sell Something is the easiest way to create a sales channel for an item and minimize the risks associated with upfront costs and inventory by determining exact demand in advance. The tool offers sellers tremendous flexibility, with functionality that enables them to set minimum sales goals, and offer products in different colors, sizes, and on a limited edition basis. In addition, Crowdtilt can support fulfillment for sellers, providing production and shipping options through a network of preferred partners. With all these benefits, setting up a Sell Something page takes under two minutes.
“The ability to sell products and tickets has been one of our most requested features, and we’re really excited to be rolling this out to all our users today,” said James Beshara, CEO of Crowdtilt. “Whether you’re creating customized shirts for your kickball league, a limited edition hand-made bag, or selling tickets to an event, you now have a way to inspire and tap into to your community in the quickest, simplest way ever. Sell Something really delivers on the promise of social commerce.”
“We used Sell Something to market a limited-edition DODOcase to our community and donated the profits to Not For Sale, an organization dedicated to ending human trafficking,” said Macy McGinniss, vice president of marketing, DODOcase. “It was a simple, quick way to create a flash sale and reach our network with a unique, customized offer.”
Sell Something has also helped smaller brands and individuals with strong networks offer products to their communities, powering successful campaigns for Alexis Ohanian, who sold signed copies of his new book Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed, Chrome Industries, which offered a flash sale on its iconic backpacks, and Saturday Down South, which has a passionate audience of SEC football fans. In addition, Sell Something has been used successfully to ticket events across the country, from birthdays on boats to a graduation parties for hundreds of people.
For a limited time, Crowdtilt has waived all fees for the Sell Something tool. Please visit http://sellsomething.crowdtilt.com/ for more information on Sell Something, or to start selling to your network and community.
