Hang w/

The Live-Streaming Mobile Platform with Celebrity Endorsers & Millions of Users

 

COMPANY OVERVIEW

Hang w/ has solved the dilemma facing today’s pop culture influencers

How to stay relevant with fresh, new, authentic content – and also get paid for their craft, their art, their influence and their time?

Hang w/ is live-streaming video from one to many, creating authentic, human and engaging social media relationships – with a monetization layer built in. Hang w/ attracts influencers who use the platform to connect with their fan bases. Many of the fans themselves become broadcasters and develop followings of their own.

Broadcasts can be monetized via an integrated ad platform which runs highly targeted advertising before and after live broadcasts. Broadcasters can earn additional revenue through the sale of Pay-Per-View “Digital Tickets” and by receiving “Digital Tips” – both of which can be converted to cash.

The technology has been fine tuned and is scaling successfully. Originally developed in stealth mode, and then through a series of user-feedback-driven enhancements and iterations, the product has evolved to include a large number of unique functions and features customized for today’s live broadcaster and viewer.

Hang w/ fits seamlessly into my overall business strategy. I see ways to use it to promote my headphones, apparel, energy shots, film and TV projects, my boxers, and even my philanthropic endeavors.

I’ve seen the power of social media and how a simple tweet or Instagram pic can bring awareness to an album. I think Hang w/ takes things to the next level. I believe the entertainment industry will line up behind this application and I intend to be at the head of the line.
