Q. Why would I want my own app?
A. If you've got lots of followers and fans and you're already building your brand on social media, there are a million reasons to have your own app and no reason not to. The fact is that most of the people who follow you on Twitter, Facebook and other social media see less than 10% of the videos, pictures and other updates you're posting. Giving them access to all your content in one spot makes it much easier for them to stay up with you guys. The app also allows you to send notifications. Finally, I tell people that getting your icon/logo/brand front and center on the most important piece of advertising real estate on the planet these days -- the smart phone screen, of course -- is key. They'll see your icon/logo/brand every day, 100x per day whenever they look at their smartphone. We could go on...call our Chief IAm Officer, Ross Mark directly at (818) 321-9388, and he can list many more reasons why it's an absolute no-brainer that you should have your own app.
Q. Do I risk losing Twitter followers and other direct social engagement if I have my own app?
A. No, you'll find that having your own IAm app actually drives more engagement with your content, your social media posts and getting more followers/fans, as people who download your app can share your posts. And since we actually imbed your Facebook and Instagram pages, users of your app can login to each respective social media site and comment, share and use your app as a default replacement to the Facebook and Instagram apps themselves.
Q. Can I post content exclusively to the app that doesn't appear anywhere else?
A. Yes, We provide you an easy-to-use backend to post pictures, videos, links or other content directly and exclusively inside the app.
Q. What's your angle? What's your business model?
A. We're creating a platform like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. For example, we enable users of The IAm Jim Cramer app to use the same log in on The IAm Scott Kelly Astronaut app and The IAm Jay Leno app and all the other IAm apps we're rolling out in the coming months and years. In coming months, we plan to have hundreds of major celebrities, shows, charities, organizations, sororities, etc all with their own IAm apps on our platform. With millions of total users and billions of monthly screen views across The IAm App Platform collectively, we'll be collecting data, comments, and so on and will eventually monetize all of that and also eventually be able to allow advertisers to target exact demographics and/or specific apps. Again, think Facebook or Twitter.
Q. What do you mean by "Platform"?
A. The IAm App solution is a platform that enables users of any IAm App to login to any other IAm app and still see the same users he's been following, his entire archive of comments and liked posts from any other IAm app. In the same way that Twitter, Facebook and other social networks enable you to post your content for free, we simply bring all that together under one roof where users can engage in social networking activity with other users from any of the IAm Apps.
Q. Is there any lock-in?
A. Absolutely not. You can cancel at any time, just by letting us know. It's like Facebook or Twitter where you can cancel your account and delete all records at any time.
