David Lee

David Lee, the Founder and CEO of Public Raise, started his career on Wall Street in 1994.  His specialties include investment banking, corporate mergers and acquisitions, and capital formation strategies.

He has over 25 years in banking and financial advisory for both institutional and individual investors and has previously worked for Morgan Stanley, Raymond James, Wells Fargo Advisors, and Charles Schwab.

While David enjoyed the challenges of his financial career, he preferred working hands-on with business owners, helping them solve their biggest problems.  So he founded All-Star Franchise, LLC (www.allstarfranchise.com), a franchise development company, to help further that goal.  Since leaving Wall Street, he has been a franchise operator, developer, multi-unit operator, franchisor, and founder of various franchise companies.  More importantly, he has helped many people grow their organizations, create more jobs and achieve their goals.   

David earned his Bachelor's degree in Finance from the University of Houston-Downtown and holds FINRA licenses 4, 7, 9, 10, 24, 27, 66, and 79 securities registrations.

Mr. Lee also serves as Managing Director of Netshares Financial Services, LLC, an SEC registered broker-dealer and FINRA member.

Equity Crowdfunding Investor Marketing

You’ve hired an attorney, a CPA, and engaged with a broker-dealer. Great, now what? In order to get your campaign funded, there are a variety of activities you will need to perform in to make your company stand out and be successful. From here on out, it’s all about marketing and nurturing your traffic into becoming investors in your company. To start, here is a list of items that will help you launch your capital raise more effectively.  

Press Promotion

Reg A+, Reg CF, Equity Crowdfunding, Raise Capital

A press promotion is required in order to inform the members of the press and journalists of your story and business. If your business story is chosen to be written about, then this could lead to thousands of potential funders and investors being informed and interested in your campaign through the news outlets.

Multimedia Press Release

Multimedia is an excellent tool that is beneficial for your campaign. Featuring images, videos, and other methods of promotion, multimedia is a great way to increase audience viewership and popularity. This marketing tool is a great way for news of your project to be spread to hundreds of potential investors. 

Campaign Consulting

A campaign consultation includes a thorough review and analysis of the overall campaign, from the funds needed, the usage of supplies and resources, and the goals for the company. We provide advice and knowledge from our past experiences that can be beneficial for your campaign and your company.

Campaign Page Design/Landing Page Development

The campaign page design is a crucial component to a campaign, where it is the first impression of the campaign. With a weak or lackluster design page, it could immediately cause investors to lose interest and seek other investment opportunities. With our design team, we are able to elevate your page to hook investors and give your campaign the best chance for success.

Email List Development

Email list development is an important step for growing your number of leads. Because of the intense competition in the market for equity crowdfunding, we can help by providing a list of potential investors that are trustworthy and eager to find a great investment opportunity. With our list development, we can give your campaign the best opportunity to raise capital and start your company.

Social Media

Social media is an incredible tool for reaching investors and spreading the news of your campaign. With our understanding and expertise of using social media through Facebook, Twitter, and other portals, we are able to advertise your campaign efficiently.

Social Media Development

For your campaign, social media can play a huge role in the marketing and advertising aspects. We can easily use social media to inform the public of the campaign and its details, and build a following for the campaign and company. Through this, we are able to market the campaign to thousands of potential investors.

Social Media Campaign

For the overall campaign that you will be using on social media, it is important that you give a clear description of your business and a strong, confident impression through the campaign. With a good introduction and impression, investors will be interested and attracted to your business idea, which will be spread through our social media and marketing.
