Decades ago, the internet made its way through the world. Now almost everyone around the world has access to the Internet. It has become the necessity of Modern man, says Marco Valentinsig, the CEO of Beliked.

The Internet is the new best friend of everyone having a smartphone. No matter your queries, your needs, the Internet has become the best teacher. It recommends products that you need and shows that you would want to see. Marco, a digital marketing expert, believes that man’s dependence on the Internet is a sign of development.

Imagine living in this pandemic with no access to the Internet. Not only would have people gotten crazy, but it would have also restricted the transfer of important information. On the Internet, news travels faster than the blink of an eye. That’s why it has become a necessity in the last three decades, says Marco.

Marco is the CEO of ‘Beliked’, that is a leading digital marketing services provider in Italy and which deals with social strategy. Instead of being a web agency, Beliked is a mix of creators and influencers who work together to develop brand social networks. He has spoken highly of the purpose that the Internet serves. In 2006, the USA declared the Internet to be one of the seven wonders of the world. Its wide usage in the past few years has proven that it is the key to the future.

Many organizations have predicted that digitization would become unavoidable until 2030. But in 2020, digitization is already happening. It is mainly because of the handheld smartphones. Everyone has access to the Internet. We can pay, shop, register, play games, watch videos, and so anything with the help of the Internet on our mobile phones.

Internet may have connected the world, because of which businesses are now depending on it to expand their growth. Digital marketing is the next step in the evolution of the Internet, and it’s going to take over the world, believes Marco.

Vurbl Makes Noise with Investor Lineup and $1 million in Pre-Seed Funding

A new audio streaming platform is coming to town. Vurbl is set to shake things up as the company goes head to head with other popular platforms like Apple and Spotify. The goal of the platform is to become the “YouTube of Audio.”

Vurbl is a creator-first, free streaming audio platform for all audio types, including user generated audio. Similar to YouTube, Vurbl allows content creators to upload, earn subscribers and monetize their work. Vurbl will provide listeners that are looking to connect with  new voices and information with personalized playlists and stations across 40 categories. 

Recently, Vurbl’s CEO and co-founder, Audra Everett Gold, completed its pre-seed round closing at $1.3 million. The round was led by AlphaEdison, a knowledge-driven VC firm that invests in early-stage companies. Vurbl also attracted other investors including Halogen Ventures, TEN13, Angelist and other businesses  within the audio, advertisement and entertainment industries.

Nick Grouf, managing partner at AlphaEdison stated, “We believe Vurbl is opening up an entirely new audio market for listeners, creators and brands. This platform has the potential to change the way we consume audio on the internet and the timing is spot on. If anyone can pull this off this enormous opportunity, it’s the team at Vurbl.”

Gold launched Vurbl at the beginning of the year and once COVID-19 hit, the team opt-ed to work from home to stay safe and healthy. Gold and her team then doubled-down to develop Vurbl’s platform. Gold single handedly embarked on a journey to gain investor interest and secured funding during the pandemic mostly by way of Zoom calls.

The pre-seed funds are being used to develop and launch the Vurbl platform with over 25 million pieces of audio and podcasts. This will span across hundreds of categories and subcategories creating a sanctuary for content curators and listeners.

Gold is confident in the market demand for a streaming platform like Vurbl and stated, “Audio is scattered all over the internet in hard to find places, much of it costs money or is not findable, is not easy to playback, etc. We see millions of audio queries on Google and YouTube that reflect demand for audio of all types. The vast majority of these searches return subpar audio results or no audio results at all.”

Vurbl is uniquely positioned to win over audio aficionados with its promise of value added services and attractive revenue share program for creators.

Vurbl is set to launch its web-based platform experience in Q4 2020 with millions of discoverable audio, playlists and human-curated audio stations. The company also plans to announce additional updates including the launch of new mobile apps, a downloadable desktop app, and connected in-home devices for listeners to enjoy audio streams anytime and anywhere.
