UNLIMITED FUNDING LEVELS AND PERKS: Every campaign can have any number of perks to offer to fans for their support - as many as you can think up!
MARKETING TOOLS: Either way, every campaign you publish includes the necessary tools to tie it in with all social media utilities, as well as use a free embeddable widget to spread the word on any web page!
