Alexis Texas new startup company, Blond Panda (www.blondpanda.com), has enjoyed a great year since it’s launch.
“We are the industry’s only true direct-to-fan platform,” says Anthony Mancini, Co-Founder of Blond Panda. “While others offer the ability for fans to buy tokens or credits to receive photos, texts, and phone calls from fans, our clients are able to engage fans via text messages directly on their personal phones. The performer can segment which incoming texts are from paying and non-paying fans all the while.”
Blond Panda turns an adult performer’s existing phone into a Blond Panda ‘SuperPhone,’ which automatically organizes their fans by name, location, total amount spent, or social engagement – all in a real-time address book. As engagement rates on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter dwindle, the Blond Panda SuperPhone allows performers to have a direct relationship with each and every one of their fans. The SuperPhone mobile application connects with a performer’s online storefront or performer website, allowing them to see just which fans have financially supported them, giving them 100% control and insight over their consumer data.
“We like to pride ourselves on helping performers not have to rely so much on social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to engage fans,” continues Mancini, “As engagement rates drop lower and lower on those platforms, we allow girls to have a direct line of communication with their fan base, which comes in handy when it comes time to alert everyone of new scenes or products available.”
In 2016, Blond Panda plans to expand from being able to funnel data from a merch store to being able to funnel data from a performer’s subscription site.
Blond Panda is also a full service Social Media Marketing agency, available to assist performers with social network marketing and support, graphic design, and much more. With a clientele list including such stars as AJ Applegate, Blair Williams, Cherokee D’Ass, and Lisa Ann, Blond Panda looks to expand to all performers and companies.
