  • Private Social Platform Revenues

    Hybrid Networks

    Private Social Platforms provide 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 Private Social Platform is entirely yours, but before discounting the idea take a look at the Private Social Platforms 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 Private Social Platform to consolidate your users into an environment that is owned by you.

    As always, with a Private Social Platform from FIOFRO the choice is completely yours.

    Revenue Example

    The best way to explain the potential reavenues available through your own Private Social Platform 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.

    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.


    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 Private Social Platform 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 Private Social Platform 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.
