When it comes to online ventures and applications, there’s one demographic that developers crave to appeal to: Generation Z. Born between 1995 and 2010 and crucially raised on the internet, this youthful segment of the population has become the tastemaker of the digital world, picking and choosing which apps become the coolest new download and which are left by the wayside. As the social media craze continues to explode, it’s only natural that three of Gen Z’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs have dreamed up the newest and most buzzed about iteration of online connection: meet LinkMe, the one-stop shop to share all social media accounts in a flash.
Following a frustrating real-life situation, where founders CEO Net Kohen and COO Val Share spent an exhausting amount of time sharing all of their social media accounts with a client at their previous venture, PartyMoves, the two tech wunderkinds knew they had to build their own solution to this common problem. Thus, LinkMe was born as the new frontier of social media, allowing users to quickly distribute all their information and accounts with the simple scan of a unique QR code.
“LinkMe is a platform that simplifies the way we connect, reducing the exchange of physical business cards, making it easier for people to communicate while being environmentally friendly,” said Share.
To bring LinkMe to life, the duo tapped into Kohen’s experience as the founder of internationally regarded mobile application developer NXTGEN to create a client-friendly and easy to use interface. The platform also benefited from Share’s management expertise, utilizing his strong rolodex of influencers and incredible leadership skills all for LinkMe’s benefit. Marketing guru Dre Medici was then brought on as CMO to round out the group, bringing with him his elite knowledge of growing account followings and generating high levels of revenue to the platform.
Now, LinkMe users can share their Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok and any social media platform you can think of with merely the tap of a screen. The application makes the experience completely customizable, allowing people to pick and choose which accounts are shared with what person at the time of swapping QR codes. Plus, the app’s ability to scan QR codes from more than six feet away has made it the perfect solution to getting to know each other during the coronavirus era of social distancing, and made connecting in general easier than ever before.
Fortunately for cell phone users everywhere, the powerhouse team of Kohen, Share and Medici has created an innovative fix to the social media sharing problem that plagues everyone, no matter the age, with LinkMe. As the youth’s co-sign remains all-important to a platform’s success, LinkMe’s Gen Z-backed platform is no doubt the next must-download application on the market.
