Social media has changed the rules for business, leveling the playing field between big brands and up-and-coming entrepreneurs. Today, to successfully launch a new site or product to the masses, it doesn’t take a huge advertising budget, but rather a great viral idea and solid marketing plan. Entrepreneurs also used to have to rely on money from banks or other lenders. Loans were often denied or came at high interest rates. But today platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have given rise to crowdfunded startups with far greater autonomy and power!
