If you are already an 8App Early Adopter then congratulations what a great move you have made. For those of you who are yet to join us on this incredible 8App journey then, “What are you waiting for!“
Here is some background on The8App
Tweet This THE8APP – A SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM THAT BRINGS ALL THE FUNCTIONALITY OF OTHER PLATFORMS TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE, WHILST EMPOWERING USERS BY GIVING THEM OWNERSHIP OF THEIR CONTENT AND 80% OF THE AD REVENUE
The 8 App is a new mobile social application and website that allows you to create and tell stories through your content. You can share your photo’s and videos, or discuss the day’s events with friends and get rewarded.
8 is the vision of “data and media entrepreneur”Sue Fennessy. Originally from Australia, Sue spent 4 years in China building the largest foreign-owned sports, an entertainment company in the country. She was the driving force behind the evolution of musical theatre, negotiated the first World Cup television rights deal in China and created 5 large sponsor driven television series.
Sue built the largest sponsorship agency in Australia and managed the sponsorship strategies and portfolios for over 30 large corporate brands including brokering 8 of the Olympic deals. After 11 years and with a team of 100 people, she sold the company to BBDO in 2000.
Sue’s current mission is to migrate the 92 billion dollars in Advertising revenue currently going to Silicon Valley, to those who are creating the content – the people.
She believes that there is a fundamentally unfair dynamic in social media that is rarely discussed: The members of social sites create the content but only the platform makes the money. Sue believes this is wrong and has set about creating social change so that the content creator is financially rewarded.
Tweet This HERE ARE 8 REASONS WHY IT’S A REALLY GOOD MOVE TO BECOME AN 8APP EARLY ADOPTER
1/ Remember when Instagram first started?
It was the new kid on the block and just look at it now. There are regular everyday users, I’m not talking celebrities on people in the public. I’m talking about members like you and me who have huge followings, some running into the millions. How did they manage to get such big follower numbers? Well, they didn’t buy those followers and they didn’t play the Instagram Follow Unfollow Game.
What they did was just to join and become an early adopter.
They had the vision to see that the site was going places. So they joined. They created great content and were consistent in what they were doing. And they grew as the site members increased, it was an organic process.
This is the same opportunity now available to 8App early Adopters. When members join a new site they are looking for members to follow. If you are an early adopter you are seen as an influencer especially if you are using the platform correctly. Yu become a go-to guy for new members because you are doing and achieving what the newbies want to model. The big follower numbers follow
2/ You get to learn the platform from the bottom up as it evolves
This is kind of fun if you are a Social Media Geek like me
3/ Your opinion matters
If you are using The8App correctly then what you do and say gets noted. As an 8 App early adopter, you can help create the Social Platform that we all want. Simply by asking questions and making suggestions
4/ You are not just a number
If you join Instagram now then no one cares, but join The8App and it is very different. Why? because you are valuable to 8.
5/ Meet the owners and staff
When was the last time Mark Zuckerburg commented on your content? He doesn’t even know you exist. It is very different as an Early Adopter.
6/ Let’s Talk Revenue
By now you know that The8App returns 80% of the sites advertising revenue back to its members. How do you think having a big following influences your 8App revenues?
7/ The Sponsor Feed
Brands within the Sponsor Feed are able to sponsor you to share their message for an agreed fee. As an 8App early adopter on a growing site, 3you are afforded a big following that is organically grown. This is very appealing to the Sponsor Feed Brands.
8/ You get to change the way we use social media
The8App is the next BIG STEP forward in the evolution of social media. BE PART OF THE CHANGE you deserve better than what Facebook offers. Social Media is the biggest unpaid workforce on the planet. This needs to change and it will as The8App grows.
It really is time to change the way that we use social media. And as an 8App early adopter, you are right at the front and a big part of the change.
