World’s First Social Media Advocates Driven Marketing Platform-SOMO App
Somo is the world’s first social media advocates driven marketing platform headquartered at Delhi. Micro Users are always most influential in order to promote services or products of brands. Quantifying the influential power of these Social Media users were never available. Somo Mobile Application is the world’s first mobile application that not only helps users to monetize their Social Media profiles but also quantifies the influential power user has on Social Media.
Every brand owns a digital space in today’s time as digital marketing benefits businesses of all sizes by giving access to the mass market in a very cost-effective & measurable way. According to IAMAI Report, ” The growth in spends on Digital Advertising is expected to continue at a CAGR of 30 percent to touch INR 12,046 Crore by December 2018 in India“. However, the existence of Ad blockers, Blind Spots & Bot Traffic has stopped the communication between digital marketers & their targeted audience, thus jeopardizing a brand’s overall success. Also, there is no platform that enables Social Media user to turn into Social Media Influencer immediately & to monetize Social Media profile of users. Somo is a Patent Pending Technology, registered under “Startup India Program” & “MSME”. Somo mobile app lets brands go viral on social media by getting brands’ campaign shared by thousands of KYC verified Social Media users in a go.
Somo builds up a win-win situation for both brands as well as Social Media users. It gives a dual opportunity for both users & brands. Users can monetize their social media profile & start the journey of being a popular social media influencer and brands can get an organic shootout through the power of these engaging social media profiles, along with the real engagement. Somo mobile application monetizes the users’ basis upon their influential power on social media and ranks them in the leaderboard for them to stay rewarding. As per Mediahub study, “Engagement rate exponentially increases with a decrease in followers”. Hence Somo focuses on micro users to drive real value to the marketers.
