About the company
The story of this platform begins a few years ago when a famous DJ realized that he was barely reaching 2% of his over a million followers on his social media accounts. Thus, he came to the understanding that his followers aren’t really his and that he does not have access to them. Therefore, out of the desire to be able to interact with his own fanbase and the frustrations of not being able to do that, this company was born. The platform allows creators to take back control of their fanbase and engage & monetize fans directly – cutting out the unnecessary middleman. The roots are in the music industry, but they have recently also seen an influx from esports teams, athletes, events companies, and influencers. Everyone is struggling to reach their fans on third-party platforms, and instead of being able to build a brand and business around them, creators are being forced to pay a third party to get access to their own followers. This platform solves this problem by offering creators an easy way to set up their own, fully branded fan platform where fans can unlock exclusive content & experiences. By signing up, fans share their data with the creator which allows the creator to reach 100% of their fans directly through email, text, and voice campaigns.
