About SharkReach, Inc. (OTC: SHRK)
SharkReach is a disruptive millennial media company that combines the strength of an influencer owned network with proprietary technology for creating, posting, managing and monitoring branded sharable content. It has demonstrated that it has the unique ability to reach the Gen Y and Millennial demographics and it has an aggregate reach of 2.9 billion. SharkReach, one of the first companies in this marketing sector, is the established leader in Influencer Marketing. It presently has the largest footprint and, in addition to organic growth, plans to further enlarge its market share through an aggressive acquisition campaign. Unlike other companies in this sector, its influencers, both grass roots individuals and celebrities, are also its shareholders and its network has a larger market reach than the top five television networks combined.
Millennials demand exacting standards in the products and services that are essential to satisfying their social conscience and personal needs. They are the first of several generations that are expected to veer away from traditional media. They do not watch television, and do not trust brands and commercials. Their purchasing decisions are impacted by individuals, friends, and celebrities that they follow on social media and YouTube. Historically, advertising via television, radio, magazines and newspapers were the pathway to customers. To access more clients and further increase sales, celebrity endorsements were added to brands to increase the effectiveness of these traditional media outlets. In a recent report of the most effective marketing ratings, Influencer Marketing, in absolute ratings, beat celebrity endorsements, television, radio, magazine and newspaper advertising. The SharkReach tracking and reporting platform and quantifying systems enable clients to select suitable influencers and to track campaigns with methods that have not been previously available.
