I love this. Solves some major pains I've had in the past managing social media profiles for talent.

@andyfortson Thanks Andy! One of our biggest target customers are companies that work with and leverage celebrities, athletes, on-air talent and other high-profile accounts.

Tell us what's the problem here you're addressing. What pain point are brands most vocal about to you?

@Percival Social media was made for people. Yet all social media marketing tools are built for brands to manage brands. We believe People > Brands so we built a people-first solution that helps brands and companies leverage their influencers by providing content and other social marketing tools to their influential network.

How many subscribers so far? And what plan has been most popular?

@Percival We're going after enterprise before prosumers right now. (You're seeing a marketing experiment that's still up on our site with our pricing section.) We will be relaunching our new site shortly! To answer the question: we are in closed beta with approximately 6 amazing parters and working to polish case studies we will share when we do our public launch. The total network through our beta partners is over 23 million Twitter users.

Have you raised any funding was this already?
Kristin Adams
Kristin AdamsMaker@ka23a · Founder, Socialie
@Percival No. We are bootstrapped with consulting revenue. (Although we are pre-revenue right now, we do know how to make money! We had approx. $250K in consulting revenue in last 15 months.) We are preparing to raise our first round of funding (but currently paused for the 500 application process.)

Can you talk about 1 or 2 of your pilot customers? What did you learn?

@Percival Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) uses Socialie to provide high-quality content to their 400+ professional athletes across the globe. The UFC is great on social with a brand Twitter account that reaches over 2 million fans. That said they increased their social reach 10x by creating a Socialie network of their top 100 fighters and now have the ability to distribute content to over 20 million fans. Working with our partners we have received critical feedback on the product that has helped us prioritize our road map.

@Percival In addition to feature feedback, one of the key learnings is that the need is larger than just content distribution. Companies and brands also want to help provide other services like listening tools, analytics digests, social advertising. So we're rethinking how we look at the relationship between brands/companies and their network members.
