SMASH FUND, Product Overview
Something that starts in July. It is a site called Smash Fund. How does it work?
Well, it is supposed to be a crowdfunding and social network all balled up in one thing.
When you first get onto the site you are told about it. Give a credit card number (If you are afraid of it being a scam you can always put some random numbers in, it will take it.)
A bad part about this is in July it will cost $149.00 for the site. Rather pricey if I say so myself.
However, the claim is that you can make money on the site. Right now it is free. It is something to think about. It is not a get rich scheme, that is for sure. Not sure if it will make you money or if it won’t. This is a new platform that can go either way. It is a crowdfunding/social network site. I am not sure if Smash Fund is legit or if it is a scam. There is not enough information on it to tell either way.
They have updated their information on the site, so the first thing as you go to the site it does not give you a page where you have to sign up. Now they have a beginning page that gives you a little more information and even a video from the owner, Rob Towles.
The Good & the Bad
- Crowdfunding as a social network. This is good if you want to get money, however, is it really that good of an idea? Or is it just a scam? This is yet to be determined.
- If this is not a scam, it can go far.
- It asks for a credit card. Well, right now you can get into the site by just putting some random numbers in for the credit card number. (For purposes of a scam, I would do this. I wonder how many 123456789 numbers they will get right away. This would be interesting to see. )
- More information is on the site as of June 5th.
- There is a video and a voice recording on the front page instead of nothing.
- Gives a bit more information than there used to be
- Reputable person who invented this site. Rob Towles is also the inventor of Candy Crush. People who play Candy Crush may also like this site. Maybe it will be a Candy Crush website? That is my opinion.
- The price of this site is expensive. You need to have a crowd connect with you.
Not completely up yet. No information as to what it will do for you.
- You need to get 5 or more people to sign up with you.
- If you don’t know anyone , or you don’t think people will want to follow you, or you don’t know a lot of people, you could just be wasting your money and time with this site.
- It is a gamble. At this time, it is a gamble as to how this will work. They are stating that it will be a big hit.
- Do we believe everything everyone says? Then again, he is the owner of Candy Crush. And see how that took off?
- No training or tools at this time.
Who is SMASH FUND For?
Right now there is not much on who this website is for. To me, it seems like this site is for everyone who wants money. It looks like a place for people who have a lot of money to throw away at first glance. It has a heading on the about page that it is for the “dreamer who dares to dream, the entrepreneur who eats obstacles for lunch, and a place where passions, people and life collide.”
I am not sure about eating obstacles for lunch, I would rather food, thank you.
Anyway, this site is not fully up and running. So, maybe in the near, we will see what it really is.
Update: Smashfund is up and running. As of July 30, 2016 this site is up.
SMASH FUND Tools & Training
- Tools: None, at least not right now.
- Training: None, at least not in the present state.
- No training at this point in time. Don’t think there is going to be training on how to work the site. But I could be wrong.
SMASH FUND Support
The support offered with the product. Is there a community, forum, personal support, do the owners support it? So far none of this is on the site. There is a little bit of information on the site, however, it still does not give you the full details. Since it is still new, they may not have everything ready yet.
SMASH FUND Price
- Pricing: Free till July.
Then it will be $149.00 per month.They lowered the price.
My Final Opinion of SMASH FUND
If you do decide to try this site out, I suggest putting in some random numbers for the credit card information. That way if it is a scam, you will not be charged on your credit card and you don’t have to worry about having to close down your credit card or stopping it with the bank.
My opinion is that it looks too good to be true. And you know what that means? Like the old saying goes, if it is too good to be true, it usually is.
Update: Smashfund is up and running. It is not easy to navigate around, but it is new. So I would think that is to be expected.
SMASH FUND at a Glance…

Overall Scam Rank: Cannot give a ranking at this time. It is not fully up and running.
I did find some YouTube Videos on it though. See below.
Smashfund is a crowdfunding site. You put your campaign in and post it. I have put a campaign up on the site. But I have not gotten anything yet. I will keep you informed on my progress on this. Hopefully it is not a waste of time. Keep checking back. Let me know if you have any questions.
SMASH FUND Videos
This video this one tells you about SmashFund and crowdfunding. Something I had not heard of till I saw it for the first time a few days ago.
Okay, here is someone who is making money, Doug Graham… $64,000.00 per month? Wow, I could use that! Wonder if they started making that on SmashFund already?
VERDICT: LEGIT/NOT LEGIT
Not sure if it is legit. If it is, it is expensive. Could turn into a great place for social networking. It could grow and be similar to Facebook, only it costs you money.
Not legit – If it is not legit, well scams are everywhere. Waste of money if it is a scam.
Personally, I would go with Wealthy Affiliate and leave the crowdfunding options to other people. Without many “friends” who want to donate money to a campaign, you won’t get any place. Besides, why pay someone money if you can just ask the person yourself and not spend the extra fees to give the person money.
I would like your opinion on Smash Fund. What do you think? Scam or not?
Right now I am not sure what to think. It looks okay, but then again, I am not sure. I will keep you up to date on my findings of this.
