The Companies: from an idea to a legacy brand
720 REACH is geared towards companies of all sizes -- from the self-starter creating the next big tech craze in his garage, to established global brands seeking alternative ways to reach their target audience and align themselves with top celebrity influencers through social media.
"720 REACH gives smaller start-ups an effective medium to reach potential investors needed to take their businesses from an idea or basement workshop to the next level," says Tom Kessler, President and Publisher at 720 REACH. "Most start-ups don't have the financial resources to find investors through the more traditional mediums. 720 REACH gives them a cost-effective way to establish both their brand and their credibility through a targeted social media marketing campaign with a reach that they would never be able to achieve on their own."
The Celebrities: top Social Media influencers
720 REACH has the ability to align companies with some of today's top celebrities who are also some the most followed, thereby influential, social media users. These celebrities range from professional athletes and musicians to well-known professors and financial gurus. The goal is to align companies with celebrities who share in their vision, and visa versa. As with any business, creating the right partnership is key.
"We would not want to match a company marketing the latest trend in skateboards with a celebrity whose social media following consists mainly of stay-at-home moms or men in their 60s," says Tom Kessler. "This is about creating a symbiotic relationship that makes sense for both parties."
The 720 REACH service is also intended to give celebrities a way to monetize their social media pages and efforts. Celebrity marketers are paid on a CPI (cost per impression) basis.
The Opportunity for "Alternative" Investments: The JOBS Act
The launch of 720 REACH also poses an enormous opportunity for firms in the financial services industry. The term "Reg D" refers to a type of investment that is currently exempt from the SEC registration requirements -- i.e. private investments or hedge funds.
Under current law, these types of investments have not been able to do any "general solicitation" or advertising. However, under a proposed rule of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, "companies would be permitted to use general solicitation and general advertising to offer securities... " The JOBS act would also make it possible for a wider group of individuals to fund startups and Reg D investments.
"In short, these changes will allow investment vehicles and companies who were previously not able to market to potential investors to do just that," stated Butowsky. "This is a major opportunity, especially for hedge fund managers who have been restricted from marketing their investment solution or seeking out potential investors through traditional means. This can open so many new doors, for the investment managers as well as investors."
"720 REACH is so much more than a simple social media or advertising campaign," concludes Butowsky. "By aligning innovative brands and established firms with well-connected celebrities and other professionals, they are able to increase their social media presence a thousand-fold, and through the voices of extremely trusted, reputable and high-profile personalities."
