- Convenience: Hunny creates a social community experience on a virtual platform connecting people who are passionate about what they love to influencers. A one-stop-shop! One click, one log-in, one place for members to go to explore every angle of their interest, from purchasing unique experiences, memorabilia and products to chatting with fellow fans in a social media environment. No more wandering around the web from site to site, only to be chased by ads you’re not even interested in. With Hunny, it’s easy to select the particular topic of interest in, but there’s no limit to exploration. Like NASCAR and jazz? NFL and fashion? No judgments here!
- Access: Buy amazing curated experiences, products that are deeply discounted, hard to find deals tailored to the users lifestyle and daily prizes. Access to the influencers a member follows. Access to a community of like-minded folks. Admission to Red Carpet events not available to everyone, Unique social experiences with your favorite Ambassador. Each of our users are specifically targeted for events they'll love! We use artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics to personalize the experience to reflect a member’s interest.
- Rewards: Users are rewarded with Hunny loyalty points for browsing and using our site. Prizes are earned the more they use Hunny. Hunny rewards them for everything they do on the site. Looking to buy tickets to a popular concert or game? Book a bucket-list trip? Or just buy the outfit their favorite influencer is wearing?

Everyone wins, with help from Hunny’s strong social Influencer base, the data and insights from the Company’s social e-commerce ecosystem (“The Hive") will allow the delivery of highly targeted deals to the users most interested in receiving them.

To our knowledge, we would be the first company to combine unbelievable experiences, social media, deals, and influencers — all in one.
Hunny plans to differentiate themselves from other deal sites by offering superior targeted experiences, and more variety. Plus, our platform offers a social media component which builds community, along with added traffic from influencers. You may be able to get each aspect of Hunny on its own on the market today — but to our knowledge, we're the first to combine them all.
We plan to combine community, data, loyalty, convenience, and social influence — in one.
- Community: We're creating a like-minded community of people with shared passions and interests.
- Data: We plan to pay our users in loyalty points for providing us with their data. Users can use those loyalty points at their favorite establishments. We'll also serve users with targeted ads they'll love — benefitting our clients.

Users will be able to explore every angle of their interest on Hunny: from purchasing unique experiences, memorabilia, and products to chatting with fellow fans in a social media environment.
- Social Influencer Access: Users will have a chance to experience exclusive meet and greets with people they love. Influencers will be rewarded for promoting Hunny which will bring their fan-base to our site. As we accrue more and more influencers on Hunny we believe this can lead to corporate sponsors and an expanding customer base.
Hunny plans to Disrupt the Way we Market Experiences to Users
Digital influencers are online “tastemakers” with large and often rabid fan bases. Many influencers rose to fame through social networks like YouTube or Instagram, and have to separately logon to each platforms to publish media and interact with fans. Not with Hunny!
- Existing services don't have access to local influencers to support their grass root marketing efforts.
- Data among the influencers' network and platforms is inconsistent. Bad data costs advertisers millions.
- Consumers receive ads for things they don’t want.
- Traditional customer engagement for businesses is antiquated and unreliable.
- Advertisers lose money because of a weary audience (due again in turn to the constant barrage of bad ads).
- Too many accounts to manage, not enough time to do-it-all, loss of engagement rate = loss of future income.
- Hunny aims to develop into a deal-driven social community: connecting businesses with customers.
- Providing users uniquely personalized and compelling social and interactive experiences.
- Providing businesses with relevant customer data and insights — think of it as a type of “Laser Groupon” model, so more focused and for extremely targeted audiences.
- One login, one dashboard to manage it all, more brands to market, future income gained.
Double Grammy Winning Music Producer & Influencer
Influencers Benefit from Working with Hunny
- Our aim is to compensate influencers for the amount of fan base that each brings with a percentage in both fee and stock. We'll work with 100's of micro-stars with followings of even just 5,000 fans in some instances — this could potentially lead to 5-10MM fans collectively and more thereafter.
- Hunny plans to handle back-end heavy lifting, running social media campaigns around each offering that influencers can utilize. The only thing they have to do is press "send".
- We do not plan to charge influencers to use our platform.
- We plan to provide further exposure to influencers with traditional ad mediums like radio and TV advertising.
Join Hunny’s already powerful team of influencers and investors in backing and creating Hunny.
Influencers bring millions of fans and contacts to Hunny, creating powerful “hives” of activity that help build strong communities that attract corporate sponsors, advertising on our cyber real estate, and other financial interest. Influencers are rewarded for bringing their followers to our platform. Users are greeted with a fun, convenient, and individually curated platform for consumers interested in Sports, Music, Beauty or Fashion. This leads to increased market share and phenomenal growth opportunities.
We've signed on groundbreaking influencers in every facet of business who are committed and bet big on Hunny.
Micro-influencers revive the original peer-to-peer dynamic that made influencer marketing successful in the first place. They may not have the followers of their mega-influencer counterparts, but they do have results: influencers with between 10k and 100k Instagram followers see 50% more engagement than influencers with more than 1 million followers, and they have 22.2x more conversions than the average Instagram user. The number of followers and reach is just smaller. — socialmediaweek.org
"I have reviewed the Hunny business plan and once the platform launches, I would be excited to get myself and my Fanbase of over 1 million followers involved."
"I am very selective of who I trust my brand or my famous clients’ brands to. I am genuinely excited about what you have laid out as a vision for Hunny."
"I am happy and elated to be joining Hunny as an influencer and growing my professional prowess."

We recently closed an exciting marketing agreement with "Being Latino" and we are inching closer to closing a potential deal with OKTV. "Being Latino" allows us the potential to reach 5M people a week, each and every week, for one year. If the potential deal with OKTV is consummated, it would provide Hunny with additional messaging via an infomercial and showcase our logo and link to 4M plus people per week on their platform. When that deal is consummated, the combination together would give us the potential to lobby 9M people per week on our Hunny platform. Once you account for all the other existing influencers and sports stars, Hunny believes that that number could quickly rise to over 13MM people messaged by our audience of influencers.
And, we're currently in negotiations with additional partners who could provide us with even more access to sectors we want. We're in discussions with another multiple-Grammy-Award-Winning producer to join our team. He would be a profound asset to Hunny as he also brings us 50-100 Celebrity YouTubers. There are three more compelling 'strategics' in deep discussion mode and we are careful NOT to disclose their information until there is a deal here, but each would provide Hunny both user aggregation access and celebrity and sports stars affiliations.
With this Netcapital raise, we believe Hunny technology can be entirely built and fully functional for us to launch by year's end. Hunny plans to hire the necessary staff to start developing content in each of our verticals, pay toward technology, handle infrastructure issues, and more. With additional capital, we plan to (ultimately) be headquartered in Silicon Valley and have offices in BOTH LA and FL. This move should set up Hunny for significant funding from next level entities.
