Leading Digital Marketing Company XO Promotions raising the bar for Social Media Marketing Industry

Published

on

Hollywood, Los Angeles a place where actors in movies blow up and made others wonder how they too some day could become a star. Today younger individuals are headed to L.A to become one of the next social media stars. In the early days of social media, influencers would either manage themselves or had somebody qualified to steer them in the right direction. Encountering an experienced high result organization was far from many. In this era, influencers are starting to become looked as a traditional star with the same representation by their team. A variety of other large talent agencies, like WME and ICM, use agents to only represent their influencers. Moreover, there are other companies providing magnificent results simply focused on completely backing their influencers and creators. XO Promotions is one of the largest in this space and they are on track to be doing so much more.

Officially launched in February 2020, XO Promotions already represents more than 80 top creators. Some of these examples are including: Savanna Rey, Alex and Kelz, Ana Nello, Kelly Kay, and Youtuber @Physics with 2 million subscribers. An agency ran by fellow creator, Leonardo McManus, who also shows a tremendous following on Youtube, Tiktok, Instagram, Twitter and other platforms. Leo McManus for short, is XO’s President who plays in the roll of content creation and widely took credit for producing a very successful Youtube channel for VitalyzdTV. The channel was driven to 10 million subscribers with a social media following of 15 million and more than 1 billion views using the same strategy incremented in XO.

At XO Promotions they have creators be a part of their management team, this main reason is why it separates them from many other agencies. Other important founders also include Lance Kachi, who is the co-founder of the whole business development side. Kachi has an extensive experience in business which makes him the perfect partner for the company. Their management team is rounded out with some of the talented executives in the social media game. The executive team of creators, combined with their industry executives, is the reason for XO Promotions grand success.

One of their first projects ever worked on, was putting together the XO LA House; a mansion located in Los Angeles. This Hollywood Hills home was used as the company’s content house for many of the largest social media creators shooting there. Examples of those being: Faze Clan, Faze Banks, Alissa Violet, Justin Bieber, French Montana and many more! Leo McManus said, “There are all these social media creators who have gained a lot of exposure in the last 12 months but they don’t have the direction when it comes to how to monetize, either merch or tours. Then there are music and TV opportunities as well.” XO Promotions launched their Instagram page @xo.promotions in January this year and has already gained over 1 million genuine followers, which is a big reason why advertisers are dying to work with them!

However it didn’t start out this way, only with dedication and persistence the dream came to life. Leo McManus had also stated, “It takes a long time with these big brands to go from CEO setting the budget, down to the person making the decisions accountable.” One reason a lot of brands stay hesitant to invest in social media marketing over traditional marketing like TV commercials, billboards, and celebrity endorsements is because companies are still catching up to the new movement with marketing and realizing the old fashioned way to put viral content isn’t the same as it was. Brand partnerships can always be lucrative for creators. Some of the most followed creators are earning $20,000 per post, but they don’t just take every deal that comes by. Lance Kachi says, “Social media influencers are extremely savvy. They know exactly what will resonate with the audience so they almost guarantee a certain level of engagement. They’ll process information so quickly, makes it insane. With volume and of course the right system, there is a way to make serious money on the Instagram platform. The goal is to take these large followings they already have on social media and spread it to other verticals. Currently, we have eight revenue streams that we are working on now, ad revenue, merch, tours, Only Fans and much more.” XO Promotions is constantly adapting to the ever-changing social media industry.

Here’s How Bitcoin Depot® Aims to Make Crypto Even More Accessible in 2021

Published

on

Crypto ATMs or Digital Currency Kiosks (DCKs) are commonly found in areas like the U.S., Canada, and the UK. While other countries are still struggling to nail down cryptocurrency regulations, these three countries are leading the crypto-economy. A great example of this is the exponential growth of Bitcoin Depot, the largest and fastest-growing multi-cryptocurrency ATM network that is Bringing Crypto to the Masses™. 

Since 2015, the number of crypto ATMs or crypto ATMs has increased. As of June 2021, the crypto industry reported more than 22,000 crypto ATMs across the world. Bitcoin Depot, the largest of these networks, operates more than 4,000 of them across North America with more on the way.

Brandon Mintz, Founder, President, and CEO of Bitcoin Depot, explains the trends of crypto ATMs and the bright future for his  company, which has more than tripled its ATM count in the last year. Bitcoin Depot is projected to install close to 6,000 crypto ATMs by the end of 2021, and we are rooting for this progress, as these machines and cryptocurrency as a whole are here to stay and change the way we participate in financial services. 

What are Crypto ATMs? 

Crypto ATMs are just like cash ATMs, except they enable you to buy cryptocurrency. Bitcoin Depot offers a cash-to-crypto service, which means that you can get your cryptocurrency in return for cash at a physical location, which eliminates the need for online transactions. “Our crypto ATMs process the entire transaction in two minutes. This makes the act of purchasing digital assets faster than ever,” Mintz says. 

Crypto ATMs have become a part of crypto users’ daily lives, saving them from the tedious effort and delayed process of making an online purchase. This is especially true in the United States, which held 83% of the global crypto ATMs concentrated in North America in 2020. As a result of the growing demand for quick and convenient crypto transactions and the company’s exponential increase in the number of crypto ATMs installed last year, Atlanta-based Bitcoin Depot expanded its team by 130%.  

What Does The Future Hold? 

The number of crypto ATMs is anticipated to continue rising as cryptocurrency becomes  more widely accepted worldwide. “We are aiming to install up to 6,000 crypto ATMs by the end of this year, while advocating for the continued growth of the crypto-economy,” shares Mintz. 

Industry experts are expecting more banks to join the digital economy soon by opening a new chapter of acceptance for digital currencies as a standard form of payment. 

Since crypto ATMs have some significant advantages over traditional forms of payment methods, they are expected to bring about a positive contribution in the growth of cryptocurrency. “If we look at the figures, there has been an astounding growth in the installation by approximately 700% percent since 2016,” adds Mintz as he shares the plans for his company. According to a report, it is predicted that by 2023 that the crypto ATM market will be worth $144.5 million. 

Find Your Nearest Crypto ATM

As Bitcoin Depot continues to thrive, the company is introducing more accessible locations for people in North America. Over the last few months, Bitcoin Depot added thousands of new crypto ATMs throughout the US and Canada where users can instantly and securely buy Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum using cash. All you need to do is use this crypto ATM locator before heading out and visit the nearest one to complete your purchase!

Roosh’s partner Sergey Kartashov (Sergejs Kartasovs) about the development of AI and ML projects in the Ukrainian IT sector

Published

on

Today, the best IT professionals from around the world are actively working to implement technologies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and neural networks into our lives. Ukrainian developers keep up with their foreign counterparts: recently, a lot of startups from this field have reached the top in the AppStore and GooglePlay world ratings. Sergey Kartashov (Sergejs Kartasovs), the Senior Partner at technology company Roosh, shared his vision of the future prospects for AI and ML technologies in Ukraine.

The modern academic community no longer classifies AI and ML technologies as theoretical ones, since they are increasingly being applied in practice. The computer games and mobile application developers are already actively using many of the existing practices. Analysts, financial institutions, and even medical institutions apply them as well.

For instance, doctors from China used the AI-based system at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic. With its help, doctors could monitor compliance with quarantine restrictions by citizens of the country. Furthermore, now IT developers are focused to create services that would help diagnose various diseases as quickly and efficiently as possible, using advances from the field of Machine Learning.

As Sergey Kartashov notes, foreign investors willingly put money in the projects implementing AI and ML technologies. In 2020 alone, such projects attracted about 40% of the total investment in the IT sector. Educational projects, the development of drones, and startups from the field of medicine interest the investors the most.

So far, Ukraine cannot boast of such rapid development in the sector of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Nevertheless, Ukrainian tech companies have already proven that they are capable of creating promising high-quality AI-based projects. Moreover, according to the Senior Partner at Roosh, over the past 10 years, there have been a lot of such products on the Ukrainian market. The expert notes such startups as the text checking service Grammarly, the Viewdle’s technology capable of recognizing objects and faces in images (by the way, Google Inc bought this product to use for its own search engine), and the scoring system Scorto that the financial structures willingly use.

Roosh also has several similar products to its credit. The Reface application is among the most successful of them. The trick of this product is that a user can replace the face of an actor or singer with his or her own and become the main character in the video or GIF. The popularity of the application turned out to be so great that in the fall of 2020 it topped the App Store rating, leaving behind even such projects as TikTok, Netflix, and YouTube.

According to Sergey Kartashov, AI and ML technologies have already become an integral part of our everyday life. These developments are actively used to automatically translate and check the text, scan fingerprints on phones and tablets, and recognize faces in social networks.

The expert argues that what previously seemed an unfeasible future has already become an objective reality. And Ukraine has bright prospects in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning along with the world’s tech giants.
