MediaShares is a marketing and funding consultancy that helps companies prepare and implement their investment offerings on equity crowdfunding platforms. We help our client companies use SEC rules Regulation CF or Regulation A+ for equity crowdfunding investment offerings to get the funding they need to grow. We have long-time relationships with all the major platforms and can make personal introductions to them. In special cases we can also help market a Regulation CF or Regulation A+ offering when on a company’s own web page.
MediaShares has relationships with private equity firms, angel groups, venture capital firms, FINRA-licensed brokerages and high net worth individual investors. When a MediaShares client has a suitable investment offering, we often make appropriate introductions to these capital sources.
We can also make introductions to securities attorneys, accountants, and marketing firms to help our clients with their offerings and we always pass along our negotiated discounts. We never take success fees, instead charging a monthly retainer for our consulting services.

Crafting Your Investment Story
Any company using equity crowdfunding to get an investment needs a great story, and it must be presented in a captivating and succinct manner. Some say that anyone has only “eight seconds” to engage a prospect, and MediaShares really knows how to do this. When a company is not presenting in person, it must create a highly engaging story online and crafting that investment opportunity is our most valuable contribution to any client needing funding.
Marketing Equity Crowdfunding
MediaShares really knows marketing for online investment offerings. We either work directly with a client to market their offering, or we can work closely with their marketing team to supervise their campaign and assure that dollars are well spent. We can work with a marketing firm that is already under contract to a company, or help a company find a new and better firm. Our extensive knowledge of the best marketing methodologies helps us negotiate better rates and provide better solutions to our client’s challenges.
Over the years, MediaShares has used Live Internet Broadcasts to solve unique marketing challenges. Using a Live Internet Broadcast while an offering is accepting investments has proven to be exceptionally valuable to give investors comfort, answer their questions, and to close. We have resources that can provide huge online audiences to any live broadcast we undertake. The bonus from our broadcasts is a video recording that can be re-purposed on YouTube or on the client’s website.
Every equity crowdfunding offering needs a video to help craft its story. MediaShares has a long string of successes with our video production, showing increased sales, audience expansion, and multiple awards for our work. Our multiple awards from Telly, Clio, The New York Festival, Worldfest, L.A. Art Directors, and the Homburg, plus millions of views on YouTube, speaks to the quality of our video production.
The foundation of any company is in its corporate structure and team. MediaShares can provide an experienced Corporate Secretary, and in coordination with a client’s attorney, this can assure good corporate governance and record keeping. Whether a C-corp or an LLC, it is essential to have a solid foundation of distinguished Board Members and compliant record keeping.
Panels and Pitches
MediaShares helps clients develop their pitch to investors, whether online or at conferences. Our consulting on their pitch materials and personal coaching has helped our clients win awards and get investments. We often attend conferences with our clients, assist in preparing their marketing materials, and often get them speaker positions on conference panels. We can also create luncheons and cocktail parties with presentations to investors.
