ABSTRACT

Despite the increased popularity of crowdfunding in practice it has received very little attention in marketing theory. In this article we aim to provide a deeper understanding this promising contemporary digital marketing platform. The conceptualizing of crowdfunding from a marketing perspective are presented. Potential crowdfunding marketing opportunities and challenges are critically reviewed and illustrated by a number of practical cases. Some direction for future research is proposed. This conceptual paper is the first to offer a marketing perspective on crowdfunding.
