branded social network events

Event management and Ticket sales

We wanted to deliver our customers with a truly unique feature for their branded social platform, so we created a complete event management and ticket sales system.
 
Your members will be able to create events, change event cover images, set the amount of visitors to their events and create event tickets that they can sell or provide for free. All revenues go directly to the event organiser and the tickets are protected with a single scan QR code so no duplicate or copy tickets.
 
 
social branded network groups

Individual member groups

The members of your branded social network can create individual members groups, a kind of network within the network on specific topics.

Groups can have their own events, own images, own videos and group discussions. Groups are created and managed by the members who create them or they can be restricted to only admins.

Group discussions can be a great way to grow your branded social network, when used correctly they can be a very powerfull tool.

branded social network search

Advanced member search facilities

The advanced search facility within your branded social network is one of the most powerfull systems on the market and allows users to search up to 20 different criteria to find a profile that matches what the user is looking for.
 
The advanced search facility runs from the questions that are asked of your users during registration, this is why what you ask is an important part of running and growing your branded social network.
 
 
 
branded social network photos

Upload photos and images

Your members can create photo albums and upload photos and images directly to your branded social network.

The branded social network can handle all image types and sizes and displays them within a number of areas around the network.

Your members can then use the images that they have uploaded to tailor the look and feel of the pages that they create on your branded social network.

Members can create multiple albums holding multiple images.

branded social network videos

Add videos and display natively

The members of your branded social network can link videos from over 9 major video content streaming services and that video content is displayed natively within your branded social network.
 
This allows your members to create their own video channels in places like youtube but then stream their content into their profile on the branded social network as if that was where they added it to originally.
 
We no longer allow direct private video uploads due to size, content control, conversion rates and system management.
 
branded social network admin

Full social network administration

Your branded social network comes with a state of the art, easy to use administration area to help you manage the day to day activities on your network.

Branded Social Network Revenues

Hybrid Networks

A Branded Social Network provides you with the opportunity to create additional revenue streams for your business.

Based upon your order type, the choice to charge membership subscriptions to join your branded social network is entirely yours, but before discounting the idea take a look at the branded social network example case study below to get an idea of the potential increased revenues from a relatively small social platform.

It may be that you wish to generate revenues from advertising or sponsorship or it may be that you just wish to provide a free and open branded social platform to consolidate your users into an environment that is owned by you.

As always, with a Branded Social Network from FIOFRO the choice is completely yours.

Revenue Example

The best way to explain the potential reavenues available through your own Branded Social Network is through an example case study. The example case study below does not include any merchandising revenues, upgrades for video content access or any forms of advertising revenues.


Example Case Study

Let's say for example you are a sports brand (maybe a football club).

You have 50,000 local supporters and another 20,000 supporters spread throughout the world and your stadium holds 22,000 capacity of which 3,000 seats are reserved for the visiting supporters.

On a good match day, the brand engages with 19,000 supporters at the grounds, provided the stadium is at capacity.

So, who is engaging with the other 51,000 supporters, who did not buy a ticket, maybe do not or cannot attend fixtures and in many cases do not generate any revenues for the club?

Let us focus on these missed opportunities.

Let us focus on these missed opportunities.


The Revenue

Using the example case figures, lets say you charge a £3.00 per month fan subscription, which is the average price of a match day programme.

Your Branded Social Network could be generating an extra £153,000.00 per month just from the supporters who did not or do not attend fixtures and who make no revenues for the brand at present.

That's an extra £1,836,000.00 per annum without any extra ticket sales, merchandising, or advertising revenues. Whilst consolidating your supporters into one central environment that you control.

Even if your branded social network only engaged with the 20,000 international supporters who don't generate any revenues for the brand.
This would still be generating an extra £720,000.00 per annum just from a base subscription rate.

Why not just use existing Social Media ?

Do you want to build your own brand, revenues and assets or someone else's? Using existing social media you do not own the brand, it's not your URL, you DO NOT own any of your member data or members. You are simply promoting and growing their revenues and business, not yours.

Who decides the amounts we can charge ?

board-member

Who collects the revenues ?

All revenues go directly into your organisation, you take all of the payments directly into your account, this removes any concerns that organisations may have about ensuring that you get paid the revenues that your Branded Social Network generates.

board-member

Where and how does FIOFRO make their money ?

The answer to this question is simple, we either take all of the initial risk and investment so we also share in the success of your Branded Social Network or we charge an affordable rate for the use of our technology and expert management, it all depends on what you want to do.

board-member

Who owns the user / member data ?

Not at all, we deliver your Branded Social Network ready to trade, we take care of all the technology for you and provide you with an easy to use WYSIWYG admin area, so basically, if you can use Microsoft word, you will have no problems managing your platform.

board-member

How much work is involved ?

This depends on what you want to achieve, there is no such thing as a "build it and they will come"- solution. You need to promote your branded social platform to your target audience, tell them you exist and why they need to join, once you reach a level of users the system takes care of itself.

board-member

I have a shopping cart, can this be integrated ?

Branded Social Networks are hosted on our specialist dedicated servers and as such are required to be in this environment, so integrating an existing shopping cart is not possible, but we can display your full shopping cart within the platform, achieving the same result.

board-member

Is it possible to add items to this solution ?

Once trading, your Branded Social Network is fully upgradeable based on your requirements and commercial viability. We can add polling systems, crowd funding systems, document management systems, live video streaming and much, much more. Just tell us what you need.

board-member

What happens to my data if I choose to stop running my Branded Social Network ?

Should you decide to stop running your branded social network at any time, we simply agree to the date on which your platform is taken down, we then export your entire dataset to an excel document for you and email it over the day before your system is switched off, subject to GDPR regulation.

board-member

What if someone wants to buy my business / network ?

In this case you decide if the offer is attractive to you, this is your business so of course you can sell it to anyone, all that happens is your agreement with us rolls on to the new owner, we are simply the exclusive revenue share / software provider.
