Fundwok.com is what I would call a "win-win" platform. It takes the familiarity and simplicity of Fiverr.com mixed with crowdfunding sensibilities and human-to-human, pay-it-forward positive surprises.
Here's how fundwok.com works:
- You sign up for a free login
- You can decide to create a fund (offer money -- a minimum of $5 -- to others who can apply to receive your fund). For example, I saw one fund this evening where a man was offering $10 to four individuals to take themselves out for a New Years dinner, if celebrating alone -- a fun random act of kindness.
- You can apply to the funds other Fundwokers have created. In the example mentioned, I could apply to receive the $10 fund to take myself out to dinner. If chosen for the fund, by the funder, I would receive the $10 and could take myself to dinner.
That's the simple explanation. This platform is fun and has some useful applications for entrepreneurs, too.
As an entrepreneur you might use Fundwok.com to find three bloggers in your niche to write guest posts for your blog and pay X amount to each who do so. It's a win-win, you get what you need, guest posts for your niche, and those who apply to your fund and are accepted by you get paid for completing the tasks required of the fund.
Unlike other platforms, Fundwok.com allows funders to be in control of their funds' applicant criteria.
You can even nominate others for funds. This could be a great appreciation marketing play for entrepreneurs. You could find a fund that you think one of your clients who just referred some new business to you might like and nominate them to receive the fund.
There are numerous creative ways one could utilize this platform. Be sure to check it out to learn more.
