Overview


We’re here to teach the masses

 


 

Rap Plug Live is a digital content platform that enables fans and followers to experience content and live videos from their favorite artists and industry pros. Our users can watch lessons from some of the best as they share their stories, skills, shortcuts, failures, and successes. 


From concert live streams to exclusive events, Rap Plug Live makes sure your fans get access to concerts, listening parties, and behind-the-scenes content. They can connect from anywhere in the world, with any screen or headset. They can enjoy any experience as if they were actually there. 

 




THE PROBLEM


The Hip Hop industry is inaccessible for most of the country


Whether you live in a densely populated community or a rural town, it’s hard to learn from legitimate professionals in the industry. Many people don’t know the true scope of jobs within the Hip Hop community due to lack of readily available information about the industry, despite the fact that the Hip Hop industry controls about 31% of the music market (Source). For those who take the plunge on their own, lack of access to mentors within the competitive industry can cause people to develop unhealthy business habits.





THE SOLUTION


An accessible curriculum created by Hip Hop professionals


We at Rap Plug take our relationships with pros very seriously. Our in-house star power and academic bandwidth have given us the ability to teach the masses about the ins and outs of the Hip Hop industry. Our industry pros often share rarely heard tips that will not only inspire but offer easily transferable skills into other industries. 




With over 50 careers you may not see under the banner of the music industry, we offer top industry professionals who teach masterclasses, tips and best practices without solely focusing on just the artist out front. We will launch a series of A List influencer campaigns and Master Classes featuring top rappers and entertainers. , Starting with Rap Mogul Rick Ross and his friends. 



Rap Plug Live is easy to use and easy to access. Download the app or visit the website to create a FREE account, then select and choose the content you would like to watch. From there, users can comment, stream and share content to their community as well as enter contests and challenges to PLUG with their favorite industry professional or celebrity. Our basic monthly subscription is $4.99 a month, and our Premium plan, which includes PPV content, is $90 a month. We also generate profit through sponsorships, events, and merchandise.

 

OUR TRACTION


Major brands and artists are tuning in



While we are new, Rap Plug Live’s content has already been licensed and used by major media companies such as VHI, BET and Hulu. We have also secured partnerships and or collaborated with major labels, brands and corporations such as Reebok, Ford, Microsoft, Combs Enterprises, Epic, Pandora, and the SXSW Music Festival. Rap Plug Live is also proud to boast collaborations with artists such as Rick Ross, Diddy, 2 Chainz and more!



Rap Plug has acquired and activated users and accounts on our platform who have tested, validated, and learned from top industry influencers and or professionals. Moreover, Rap Plug has generated thousands in revenue from online content, service offerings to artists and sold-out success events and activations from Coast to Coast. We have also raised over $650,000 in seed capital from friends, family and angel investors. 


Lastly, Rap Plug has built a very robust internship program that consists of 60 plus paid, unpaid, and independently contracted staff members. Our team consists of 60+ youth and young adults from all over the country and includes partnerships with over 10+ colleges. We plan to expand our team so that we may create more opportunities for young adults aspiring to work in the Hip Hop industry.

 


THE MARKET


Rap Plug Live brings the industry to you


Rap Plug is the SaaS platform for the Hip Hop and Music Industry. We are a subscription based video on demand (SVOD) platform that provides direct access to top music industry professionals and exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content that other SVOD platforms won’t give their subscribers. Our users will learn how the Hip Hop industry works on a granular level as well as a macro level, which provides an immersive, educational experience. 

 


Through our contests and events, we give our users access to our celebrities and professionals in ways traditional social media cannot. We believe this access reinforces the hands-on learning approach that’s required to learn about the Hip Hop industry. One of the reasons we are able to give our users this experience is because we provide revenue share opportunities for our celebrities and professionals. This model incentivizes A-list talent to collaborate with us, which in turn, provides us with a legitimate roster to teach up-and-coming professionals.




Lastly, and arguably most importantly, we believe in giving back to our users. Rap Plug provides job opportunities and programs for users who complete our classes and courses. We believe in both our cause to make the Hip Hop industry more accessible, as well as the strength of our curriculum, so that we can create a network of professionals who will help cultivate the next generation of Hip Hop professionals.




WHY INVEST


We believe we will elevate Hip Hop

 

The Hip Hop Industry is a multi billion dollar industry, and we plan to make Rap Plug its number one educational platform. Our early traction is already stellar, we have the network, platform, and technology to bring the Hip Hop industry to people throughout the country. Invest in Rap Plug, and be a part of the next generation of Hip Hop.

The 10% StartEngine Owners' Bonus

Rap Plug will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by investors that are eligible for the StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. OWNer's bonus.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Common Stock at $2.27 / share, you will receive 110 shares of Common Stock, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $227. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors' eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are cancelled or fail.

Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for.

Voting Rights of Securities Sold in this Offering

Voting Proxy. Each Subscriber shall appoint the Chief Executive Officer of the Company (the “CEO”), or his or her successor, as the Subscriber’s true and lawful proxy and attorney, with the power to act alone and with full power of substitution, to, consistent with this instrument and on behalf of the Subscriber, (i) vote all Securities, (ii) give and receive notices and communications, (iii) execute any instrument or document that the CEO determines is necessary or appropriate in the exercise of its authority under this instrument, and (iv) take all actions necessary or appropriate in the judgment of the CEO for the accomplishment of the foregoing. The proxy and power granted by the Subscriber pursuant to this Section are coupled with an interest. Such proxy and power will be irrevocable. The proxy and power, so long as the Subscriber is an individual, will survive the death, incompetency and disability of the Subscriber and, so long as the Subscriber is an entity, will survive the merger or reorganization of the Subscriber or any other entity holding the Securities. However, the Proxy will terminate upon the closing of a firm-commitment underwritten public offering pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 covering the offer and sale of Common Stock or the effectiveness of a registration statement under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 covering the Common Stock.

The Company will not incur any irregular use of proceeds.

TECHNOLOGY UPDATE "NEW FEATURES"

11 days ago

TECH UPDATE 

Hello everyone our development team has been working hard to create new features and functionalities on our platform that will enhance the overall experience and value proposition for our users, partners  and customers. 

RECENTLY LAUNCHED  

Roku App Continue Watching

Adds the ability for users to pick up where they left off on videos and see a list of recently viewed videos on Roku Apps.


Sell products from the player

We're adding a serious upgrade to our player to allow our partners to sell products directly in the player overlay. For each video, we will be able to add a URL to purchase a product from brand partners. We'll then display that on top of the video for a few seconds to encourage  users to make the purchase. For example we can  send  users over to Shopify to buy exclusive T Shirts from a tour or beats from a producer who just laughed his “PRO CLASS” on Rap Plug.   We sell a physical copy of a film we are showing + more. 

In our first iteration this feature will be available only on the web, but we will expand it to mobile apps in the future.


Coupons page redesign

We're working on a complete redesign of the Coupons page to allow bulk actions such as deleting coupons! In addition, the card view for coupons will be rebuilt into a table view. We will be able to export coupons into CSV file and filter them by expiration date, discount and product types.


My library on Mobile

My Library" is now available on native mobile apps.

A mobile app version update is required.


Email settings and custom email domains

To guarantee transactional and bulk email delivery in the future we will send all emails from verified custom email domains only. By default, Rap Plug will provide our “Pro Partners” with a custom address on the Rap Plug domain, but much like storefront domains we can set custom domains that are verified via our domain provider.


Emojis in Live Chat 😊😊

If you're on your phone it's pretty easy to type an emoji into the live chat, but from a computer it's a little more difficult. So we're adding a handy emoji picker that will upgrade our chat interactions with fun emojis!


Ultra low latency streaming mode

We'll soon add the ability to reduce stream delay to around 5 seconds. Ultra low latency is on the edge of what's technically possible for streaming so we will need to test to make sure it works for our users, but we'll make it an option to switch between 3 different stream delays to ensure your users continue to have a good streaming experience.


Downloadable receipts for end-users

In our end-users' dashboard users can now find a link to open historical receipts and print them as needed.


Live event analytics

Live event views and watch time have been added into the analytics section. Existing reports are updated to include the views and watch time and we've created a new section just for live events.


Trial conversion rates

We've just launched our new In Trial Analytics for subscriptions and we can now see the rate included in the Trial Analytics.


Introducing Google Pay for Web!

For our web customers, they now can checkout with Google Pay, which much like PayPal will simplify the checkout process. We'll automatically enable this where supported.  Payouts made with Google Pay will be processed through our Stripe account integration. 



Simplified iOS Subscriptions

Our iOS customers can now signup for a subscription without first creating a account. They will simply click "Get Access" on a subscription and the iOS purchase confirmation screen will appear where they can complete their purchase.

Removing the requirement to create an account will reduce friction during the checkout process which will lead to more conversions for Rap Plug Live. Of course, we still want to capture their name and email, so additional actions the user might take in the app will eventually prompt them to provide their name and email to pass back into Rap Plug Live .




Video Player 2.0

We've got a brand new player launched in beta that will greatly improve player performance and speed:

  •         We'll support iOS native player out of the box
  •         It's a lot smaller which means it loads even faster
  •         Close captioning support is improved.
  •         Better support for Chromecast
  •         All new design refresh


Taxes Report

We've launched a new tax report that will break down purchases by location of the purchaser so we can remit tax payments according to the purchasers location if needed. This should simplify a lot of the headache of managing tax collection for different jurisdictions.


Roku Video Analytics

We've added video views from Roku into RPL analytics so we can see our overall watch time stats increase as it will include the Roku views in the view and watch time counts.



Multiple Subscription Terms for Roku Apps

Instead of a single subscription duration term option for Roku apps, we can now offer both a monthly and yearly subscription term!


Watched Videos Indicator

A new watched indicator will be added to videos on the web when a user watches more than 95% of a video, users will also be able to manually set the video as watched with the click of a button. Users will see this status on both the thumbnails in the catalog and the video page itself. As an admin, you'll have the ability to disable this feature completely in your settings.


 Multiple Subscription Terms for Mobile Apps

Instead of a single subscription duration term option for Mobile apps, we will  soon be able to offer monthly and annual term subscriptions!


Live Event Attendees Report

We now have a new report that we can download for each completed live event that will show a list of all attendees. We may see some minor UI changes to the live events list page to accommodate this new feature.


Live Event Calendar Feed

With the click of a button, our end-users will  be able to add live events to their calendar using Apple, Google, or Outlook calendars!


Try Again for Free Analytics

We’ve seen our analytics for Reduce Churn. We're bringing a similar update to our Try Again for Free marketing feature. You'll soon see charted data on how many users were offered the automation and how many accepted.

While we're here we're going to update the flow to better comply with CCPA regulations on the details a customer needs to know before starting another free trial.


Featured Categories for Mobile Apps

Now, much like our web storefront, our feature category will be prominently displayed at the top of our catalog in our mobile apps.


New analytics backend

Sounds boring? It's not! When you're delivering content around the world through a combination of CDNs to ensure smooth playback for all users, getting fast and accurate view data can be a challenge, but by building a new analytics backend we can get going on:


  •         Better unified app and web analytics
  •         Almost instant data updates (no more waiting 24 hours for data)
  •         Video heatmaps
  •         and much, much more.



Easier Subscription Signups for Roku

We all know what a pain it is to have to type text on your smart TV. With our upcoming Roku changes, users purchasing a subscription will have their Roku account email automatically populated during the subscription process so that it's one less step to complete during the checkout. This should increase the number of purchase completions for your Roku app.


Subscription analytics

We can now see detailed analytics on our monthly recurring revenue,  Churned revenue, and Subscription Growth Rates. 


Subscription analytics is a new feature to help us better understand our revenue without relying on third party integrations.


Continue Watching

This adds the ability for users to pick up where they left off on videos and see a list of recently viewed videos. 

We've added a handy toggle to disable this feature under Customization. So much like "My Library" we can now toggle this on or off.


Add ability to duplicate live events

We will soon have regularly scheduled events and want to use the same settings as previous events. With this feature, we can duplicate live event settings for easy setup of future events.


Subscription upsells

When an end-user goes to purchase a subscription plan, we can try to upsell them to a more expensive plan or a plan with a longer subscription period.


Tiered subscriptions

Tiered subscriptions allow us to sell content grouped by tier instead of just plan duration. We can create a plan with all our VODs and another with all our VODs plus live events and sell them at different prices. We can also setup something like a Bronze, Silver, and Gold tier - each with increasing amounts of content.


Leadzen Email Capture Funnel

Leadzen allows us to build an email capture form to use in marketing campaigns. We can give a video to a lead in exchange for the email address. After the video is watched, a series of upsell emails will be sent offering them a discount to signup for a subscription.


Bulk delete videos

We can now use a quick multi-select option in the video list to bulk delete videos in one swoop!


New people profiles and end-user analytics dashboard

We've added a revamped end-user profile in the admin with new analytics! We can now see total spend, watch time, most watched videos, and a chart of recent video views.


GDPR/CCPA compliance - delete end user data

To satisfy GDPR/CCPA regulations we're adding a way for end-users to delete their accounts while ensuring you don't lose access to important financial data.


Monthly sales analytics charted

We can now see our monthly sales charted and can even filter on payment processor source(Stripe, Paypal, etc.) and segment between transactional and recurring payments.


Landing page builder

If you've used Squarespace or Wix before, you'll know exactly what this is. We've built an amazing page builder that gives us dozens and dozens of fully customizeable blocks with everything from setting the rounded corners on buttons, to custom fonts, to font colors, and multiple layout options.


Add custom user fields into various webhooks

We can now find custom user fields in the following webhooks:

  •         user created
  •         user signed-in
  •         payment method updated

We can also find these data points in the user created Zapier trigger.


Require CAPTCHA on account creation

To prevent those pesky spam signups we now have a CAPTCHA required for all signups.


Global timezone settings

Our Rap Plug Admin team can set a global timezone to add consistency across timestamps across various features. Live events, activity histories, scheduled content releases, and more.


Live chat for live events

We can now enable live chat for live events and talk in real time to our end-users while we run a stream. There's built-in moderation functionality and a counter to see how many viewers our live stream currently has.


Add VAT support

We can now enable VAT under settings and it will collect taxes based on the users' country of purchase in the EU. Rates are automatically adjusted for you as any changes are made in rates.


Reduce Churn Analytics

We now have analytics on cancellations and churn reduction. We can see the reasons our customers are cancelling and a dollar amount for the amount of revenue we have saved through the reduce churn automations.


Gift Cards

End-users can now purchase gift cards to gift to their friends and family. When a gift card is redeemed it applies a credit to the end-users' account and they can purchase any content or subscriptions using their balance.
