Augmented reality app Memik is taking dance challenges to new heights, and there’s no stopping it. The worldwide dance challenge phenomenon has been making waves on the internet for years now. Dance challenges recently became more viral because of the pandemic that forced many, if not most of us to be stuck at home.
From A-list celebrities to elite athletes, millions of people regularly participate in dance challenges that definitely tickle our funny and happy bones. Memik is an augmented reality dance and social media platform founded by Amari Ruff and Laron Walker. Think about it as TikTok, but with creative avatars that personalize everyone’s experiences.
The app may have not been around for a long time, but it already features several major developments. For one, Memik lets content creators and brands reach their target audience. In turn, the users get to engage with their favorite content creators. The users also get to know brands that can help make their lives more enjoyable.
Interestingly, Memik also gives content creators more ways to monetize their content.
Through Memik, content creators can create NFTs (non-fungible tokens), the new digital finance craze directly linked to cryptocurrency like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Content creators can also start their very own dance challenges, featured artists pages, and featured music playlists. The app also lets content creators sell merch and virtual tickets to events.
These innovative initiatives allow Memik to give content creators more revenue, creative freedom, and control over their content― things that most social media platforms do not fully give them nowadays.
One of the most notable things about the app is its avatars. Creators can load avatars, scan the room they’re in and interact via augmented reality– turning any environment into a stage to share with their followers. Then, content creators get paid based on the people using and charging their content. The more people use and share their content, the more revenue they get.
By allowing content creators to reach their target audience and create more revenue, Memik helps over 90% of content creators who do not make enough money.
Memik thinks that content creators and users are the lifelines of the internet, so they want to release entertaining content to the world while making sure that content creators get handsomely rewarded.
Users wanted to try Memik so much that two weeks after its launch, Memik had 5,000 downloads. The app also secured partnerships with leading music distribution outlets and got accepted by Start Engine, a well-known crowdfunding platform in the United States.
On top of that, Memik launched influencer programs that reached over 20 million people as of writing. With this track record, Memik is well on its way to becoming the next household name in the social media industry.
