AllTheBelts develops mobile apps for combat sports with the latest news and the most engaged communities. Fans can get all the news, videos, podcasts, rumors, and live updates in a single app. No need to dig through all the different sources, AllTheBelts has them all.
- $670M sports mobile app market
- Significant traction: 22K installs
- Experienced founder with 4 successful exits
- Plans for vertical/market expansion
The problem AllTheBelts is attempting to solve is threefold:
There are hundreds of combat sports publishers creating content for fans to consume. This includes websites, YouTube channels, podcasts, ranking systems, combat schedules, etc. The content disaggregation leads to a time consuming experience for fans seeking and consuming content from each niche outlet.
A number of outlets have relationships with various promoters and governing bodies to release content. This can lead to providers being incentivized to promote certain fighters or events and not reporting the “whole” story. For example, Ring Magazine, a prominent boxing news publisher, is owned by a group headed by Oscar De La Hoya, one of the largest US boxing promoters.
Advertisers are always looking to get more “bang for their buck”. The disaggregated content makes it extremely difficult for combat sports advertisers to reach their audience. With AllTheBelts, advertisers can target general boxing enthusiasts and/or more niche audience segments without the inefficiencies of negotiating multiple contracts. Our data will allow for more thoughtful and effective targeted advertisements.
AllTheBelts is building out a catalog of combat sports news apps, starting with boxing.
“AllTheBelts - Boxing News” is a 5 star rated app available on the Apple and Google app stores. The app gives boxing fans access to 60+ news, video and podcast outlets along with an integrated fight schedule. The app has a highly engaged active user base built almost entirely organically.
There is a clear gap in the market for a network of martial arts/combat sports content aggregation apps. By aggregating content, combat sports advertisers will have access to a platform to run more targeted ads without having to negotiate with dozens of outlets. These apps will remain unbiased and focus on reporting the entire story, from all perspectives.
Initial capital raised will be used to grow active users to a level where the boxing app is generating advertising revenue. After proving out the revenue stream for the boxing app, the long term vision is to build out further apps and monetize.
- AllTheBelts - MMA News
- AllTheBelts - Wrestling News
- AllTheBelts - Kickboxing News
AllTheBelts apps will be monetized via advertising. Several ad slots can be made available. From rotating banners to full screen interstitial, menu items and push notifications. The boxing app already has the Twitter and Google advertising SDKs integrated.
Additional revenue can also be generated using a Freemium model. Specifically a paid upgrade to disable the ads and access additional premium content. This can be offered to users on a monthly and/or yearly basis.
Worldwide Sports app store category installs surpassed 200 million for the fifth consecutive quarter in Q2 2019. The 254 million installs in the quarter reflected a 50% increase vs. Q2 2016.
Sports category revenue growth has also accelerated since 2017 on both the Apple and Google app stores.
AllTheBelts is focused on capturing 0.5% of this market, representing $3.3M ARR.
Boxing-wise, there are a few other apps aggregating boxing content. In two categories:
- Established companies focused on creating aggregation apps for various topics
- Minimal boxing content sources vs. AllTheBelts
- Indie developers
- Apps with little to no traction (<10K downloads)
The AllTheBelts boxing app already has a highly engaged active user base, built almost entirely organically.
- 22K installs growing at 1.5K per month
- 3K monthly active users (MAUs)
- 1K weekly active users (WAUs)
- 300-500 daily active users(DAUs)
- 2.4K registered users (allowing access to post, comment and like content)
The app is highly ranked across Google search and the app stores. (see infographic)
- #1 for search term “boxing news app” on Google search
- #1-5 for various boxing search terms on the Google and Apple apps stores
The app also has a global appeal with a worldwide user base. ~50% from the United Staes and United Kingdom. (see infographic)
