Analitycs for Admin
Picandshare is an innovative digital marketing tool, that allows your brand to be more visible through the social media virality. It gives you full and real-time control over the campaign results and goals.
How the Picandshare idea was born
The Picandshare idea was born from the desire and need to combine Matteo Ribigini’s passions, the web (technology, internet, etc. ) and travelling (outdoor sports kite surfing snowboarding).
All these ideas, reworked, edited and declined together, in different ways, gave life to the Picandshare project as you can see it today.
We really believe in Picandshare as a powerful digital marketing tool.
Companies, shops, restaurants, public administrations, clubs, these are only some examples of who might find Picandshare useful to develop both the brand and social presence.
Everytime Picandshare receives a tweet from a user and sends out a picture or an animated gif, that picture is shared virally and the related hashtag gains positions into the Twitter trend topic list.
The more Picandshare is contacted by users, the most the Picandshare owner takes advantage from it!
That’s the reason why we think that Picandshare has to be free from any fixed cost. It will infact be paid on a pay-per-tweet basis.
Through our website, the Picandshare owner will recharge the credit that will decrease as tweets will be sent to Picandshare at a rate of 5 Eurocent per tweet.
With that being said, during the Kickstarter campaign, you’ll have the chance to get your own Picandshare free from any tweet cost. This is a huge advantage!!
How will we use the money raised
The money raised will be used to launch the project and produce the first set of Picandshare devices. It will also be invested for researching and develop new features to be implemented into Picandshare in the near future.
Risks and challenges
The main risk we might face is related to the big social media players deciding to be directly involved in a project similar to Picandshare.
Their financial strength might push the development and distribution of their project faster than Picandshare.
