We’ve spent the last year developing our unique FrontDor digital message board platform, and now we’re ready to launch the first FrontDor Community Network. As alumni from UGA, we are choosing to launch our first network in Athens, GA.

Any local business in Athens can host a display. Our technology makes it easy to turn any regular TV into the social bulletin board for Athens. 

We plan to launch Athens FrontDor with displays in at least 15 business locations around town. By backing us on Kickstarter, you are helping change the way communities stay in the loop – with the first social display network.

By hosting the community Instagram feed, more people will be posting and tagging your business location on social media. In addition to this, you can choose to cross-advertise with other FrontDor hosts, or display your own Instagram feed. As a host, you also get an exclusive discount for using our text-message marketing service. That means you can text your next important business offer to a list of subscribers that want to hear from you – and save when you do it. It’s on a pay-per-text basis, so you only pay if you use it.
 

There is no commitment, and there are no monthly fees. To become a host, all you have to do is: plug a FrontDor MediaPlayer into your TV, connect it to the internet, and let the FrontDor team do the rest.

About Us

Community Signage, LLC is a young startup company of UGA and GT alumni with backgrounds in business, engineering and communications. Our technology, FrontDor, is an easy way to turn any regular TV into a social message board – for businesses, and for communities.  

FrontDor Community Networks are independent projects using FrontDor technology to create social bulletin boards for communities. Our goal is to put the community on display, and make it easier to stay in the loop with things to do and places to go nearby.

Reward Levels

Thanks!

We all know how amazing, beautiful, trendy, smart, intoxicating, diverse, fun, and unique – our community is. Back us on KickStarter and let’s make Athens the home of the first social display network! 

 

Risks and challenges

FrontDor is already being used successfully by multiple business locations in the Southeast as a social message board – so we know the software and hardware are ready for launch. However, Athens FrontDor will be the first FrontDor Community Network, and that brings some unique challenges. A key consideration is ensuring we launch with enough FrontDor locations. The more businesses we have hosting FrontDor displays, the more valuable the network is for everyone.

Part of the reason we chose to launch using Kickstarter is to ensure that we will only launch if we reach at least 15 host locations. Our Kickstarter campaign gives local businesses the opportunity (1) to get in early for a big discount, and (2) to join knowing they will be part of a network of at least 15 locations.

If you share our vision and want to help us reach more potential host locations, you can help by sharing our Kickstarter video and encouraging your favorite business locations in Athens to become a host.

Installation of the network will begin as soon as the campaign finishes. This will require communication and scheduling installation times with the host locations. Our goal is to ensure all locations (at least 15) are setup by the end of October 2016. We will do everything we can to make the launch of the network as smooth and efficient as possible. We will personally deliver and help setup FrontDor at each location.
