Jumpoff will change the kids product industry
Online PR News – 17-September-2012 – September 17, 2012 – For those that make products for kids, Jumpoff.co will change how to fund, create and ultimately get products to market. Jumpoff is a new crowd-sourcing platform for creative projects that are made for kids. Jumpoff will help, artists, designers, inventors, writers, musicians, charities or people with great product idea for kids, gain worldwide exposure, raise money and get their product on store shelves.
Projects will range from toys, games, electronics, art, music, clothing, jewelry and accessories, publishing, and charities. Jumpoff will provide a secure, reliable and user-friendly platform for creators while ultimately building a community of reviewers and supporters that will provide feedback and monetary contributions to projects. “We believe if a kid uses it, wears it, plays with it, listens to it, benefits from it or makes it, it should be on this site,” stated Rhett Power, Jumpoff Co-Founder.
Currently, large manufacturers and mass retailers are the primary influences on product purchases and what is put on store shelves. Companies that control distribution and retail shelf space control what consumer’s purchase. “This is changing. Social networks, crowd-sourcing and online retail are completely and fundamentally changing how products are produced, sold, and marketed. Today, online social networks are creating immense and diverse communities that provide a new way for small creators with good ideas but small budgets to get in the game. We also believe that the public, retailers and developers will benefit and find the newest product on the site,” says Pete Gasca the other founder of Jumpoff.
Jumpoff will help empower creators to act on their ideas. It will encourage them to “jump off” and create the next generation of new, innovative and exciting products. Power concludes, “change is happening and we want to embrace it and help drive it. Jumpoff does just that”.
The team at Jumpoff.co have won over 40 national awards for their innovative products and have been featured on CNN Money, Fortune, Parenting Magazine, Good Morning America, Today Show Regis and Kelley and many more national and regional media.
