Internet Marketing Technology Provider Puts Capital-as-a-Service to the Test

AUSTIN, Texas – 6Qube, a leading provider of internet marketing software and services, today announced that it has secured $100,000 in growth funding from Lighter Capital in Seattle. 6Qube will use the funding to fuel its sales and marketing efforts, and make key upgrades to its suite of technology products.

“This was the first outside funding raised by 6Qube, so it was important that we get it right,” said Jon Aguilar, President and Founder of 6Qube. “We had several funding paths we were moving toward until we found Lighter Capital. The revenue-based loan model was a perfect fit for our business – and the process was extremely fast compared to other business financing options we had explored.”

Since 2009, 6Qube has been developing, testing, and scaling a solution designed to help all businesses increase online visibility, leads, and follow-up through its proprietary inbound marketing automation software. The company’s cloud-based software combines marketing automation and inbound marketing into a simplified application, built to support a breath of solutions outside of traditional inbound marketing efforts. Features such as Multi Site CMS, Multi Site Blogger, Multi Site Marketing Automation, and Multi Site Social Engine allow companies to deploy multi-city or metro-centric inbound marketing strategies that can support multiple locations, dealer channels, franchises or nationwide products or services. In addition to its Multi-Site technology, 6Qube’s software stack includes an easy to use Website Management CMS, Business Blogs, Landing Pages, Microsites, Lead Forms, Email Marketing, Call Tracking, SERP Rankings, Analytics and more.

The debt funding from Lighter Capital – which was secured in a total of 19 days – will enable 6Qube to grow without adversely impacting the company’s cash flow. Lighter Capital’s revenue-based financing model is uniquely structured to match the ebb and flow of small business. Loan payments adjust in proportion to revenue, and there’s no loss of control or restrictive financial covenants.

“One of the beautiful things about Capital-as-a-Service is that we’ve automated the due diligence process, allowing us to utilize digital assets – like CRM data – to get a more robust picture of the companies we’re looking to fund,” said BJ Lackland, CEO of Lighter Capital. “It tells you things that a company’s balance sheet won’t – like customer sentiment. 6Qube shined in this regard as they had extremely strong customer references. Their customers absolutely love them – which speaks volumes.”
