Introduction

Whether it’s Mike Tyson’s chatroom ‘Tyson’s Topics’, TV shows, sports, cannabis, or anything in between, Relevnt enables users to instantly connect and interact with the people and things they are passionate about without unnecessary limitations. This is accomplished through live, pop-up chatrooms which are uniquely personalized by timeframes, interests and geolocation. While Relevnt offers users the ability to create and participate in media-rich permanent chatrooms, the company’s trailblazing moves in group messaging have also enabled ephemeral pop-up chatrooms. Content can come and go, or stay forever, it’s completely up to the creator.

With a rapidly growing pipeline of innovative features, functionality and content, Relevnt is where inclusive community and entertainment meet empowerment. Users can be moderators and participants can become creators, instantly. With Relevnt, no extra equipment is needed to podcast live, no invites are required to participate, and the app makes it easy to explore and create. Relevnt is free and available on the App Store and Google Play.

Relevnt chatrooms are uniquely personalized by timeframes, interests, and geolocation on our open network. Stay connected to all of your favorite people and content. With Relevnt, you'll always be part of the conversation.

problem

Group messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger, Discord, and GroupMe are constantly ranked in the Top 20 apps in the social categories on the App Store and Google Play. But, with cancel culture pearing behind every corner and unnecessary censorship increasing daily, users and creators alike are finding it harder and harder to speak freely without the fear of being canceled.

solution

Relevnt is changing cancel culture to CONVERSATION CULTURE! Given how social media has ushered in the corrosive side effects of cancel culture and excessive censorship, an ephemeral group messaging platform with content that will automatically disappear provides a clear and timely solution to this problem. Our new “Live Now” conversation feed is the ideal community and monetization experience for aggregating large audiences around topical settings within specific timeframes for live sporting events, conventions and festivals, celebrity drop-ins, trending topics, breaking news, and more. While our “permanent chatrooms” have a unique, media-rich feature set compared to other messaging apps, we’re working to move the $100B+ group messaging market to the next level with one of the first modalities around “ephemeral pop-up chatrooms”.

Relevnt gives users free-er expression with ephemeral pop-up chatrooms and unique "LIVE NOW" conversation feed.

Future Monetization Opportunities

(These features are currently under development & may be subject to change)

  • Sponsored Pinned Links — Pinned links offer TOP LINE paid advertisement in chatrooms by placing static banner ads at the top of the chat feed. Pinned links are great for product or service promotions, special announcements, and exclusive discounts offered only on Relevnt. Additionally, we plan for monetization opportunities to be made available to chatroom Hosts based on the income generated from the paid advertiser.
  • Donations — Users will be able to earn or purchase coins that can be spent and given as “virtual gifts'' to hosts during live podcasts. Each user will have a Relevnt Wallet where coins earned or purchased will be saved. Coins can be earned based on specific activities or actions in the app or purchased in coin packages. Relevnt coin values are based on a point system wherein every action in the app has a set point value. Chatroom Hosts can convert these virtual gifts or donations into cash.
  • Content Subscription — Chatroom Hosts will have the ability to create subscription-based content that allows users access to content through monthly subscription fees set by the creator. Content subscriptions will range from $1 - $10 and allow Hosts to limit free content users browse and provide monetization opportunities for popular Hosts.

Market Drivers

  • Top Down
     Leverage Strategic Influencer Partnership With Mike Tyson To Accelerate Broad Adoption
    — we’re launching our strategic influencer partnership with Mike Tyson. By leveraging Mike’s near 50mm+ social media following, we’re attracting other notable personalities and media partners to further accelerate our initial growth across the globe.
  • Bottoms Up
    Build Upon Strong Grassroots Adoption With College Demographic — with a solid team in place, we’ve built the content foundation of the app organically with our “Relevnt Originals”. This is a curated collection of interest-driven chatrooms surrounding sports, cannabis, female empowerment, relationships, movies, music, crypto, travel, food, politics, and more. Central to this initial wave and without the positive impact of any notable influencers, we’ve leveraged Handshake, the college-based job recruiter app, to enlist a broad group of college interns to drive curated content creation and user engagement at virtually no cost.
