Testimonials

Xfluentail has an excellent strategy built into their networking style. It is more organized and you can easily direct your messages to where it belongs. There is no doubt this model will quickly become viral because delivering a message here is not a shotgun approach but precision targetting. Great leadership, an experienced one and a tech wiz.

Business model

whisPERK is a new tool for marketing, promotion, and fund-raising campaigns that leverages the social platform of Xfluential.

The revenue model is based on subscriptions and percentage of funds raised.  Additional revenue streams will be explored when highlighted by key metrics, without negatively affecting the primary revenue streams or cannibalizing the main customer base.

Competitive advantage
Our competitive advantage is a combination of the following:

a) Strong and proven team with experience successfully executing tasks similar to those required by our current solutions:

  • Stefan's stint as co-founder of Xignite and 20+ years of  product design and data integration help with product architecture and technology.
  • Kusno's consumer-oriented background and web tech expertise derived from co-founding Cloud Girlfriend, is essential to scalability and user-friendliness of whisPERK and Xfluential.
  • Joseph's app development prowess and technical discipline ensure reliability and strong mobile capabilities for both whisPERK and Xfluential.
  • Lana's artistic background ensures a highly engaging and satisfying user interface that is eye-catching and pleasing, yet easy-to-use and highly functional.

b) Leverage of experience with the initial target customer base, e.g., Stefan's involvement with non-profits and creative professionals (filmmakers, musicians, artists, and writers).

c) Patent-pending technology and scalable platform built from the ground up.
