Invest in Sharebert

Sharebert is a shopping app that pays you to browse, shop, share and get discounts from more than 100,000+ brands and high-end products.


The app automatically learns what products you're interested in, and incentivizes sharing with your social circles.


Oh yeah, and there are prizes to win, but you'll have to download the app to learn more about those. 😉


"Shopping online is hard. It requires multiple tabs and a lot of decision making. Doing it on your phone is even harder. Sharebert fixes that problem, and makes browsing the internet for cool things to buy (or share) an easy boredom killer that you can do on the train, in bed, or even on the toilet." 


- CEO, Ali Mahvan


FIND ANYTHING
You can find products from almost every brand you can think of; Amazon, Disney, Gucci, Lego, Best Buy, Nike and more. You can even book flights and hotels, all while picking up those sandals you wanted for the beach.

EASY CHECKOUT
You checkout straight through the store that sells the product. That means if something is sold by Amazon, you can use your Amazon Prime or you have a rewards membership, you can keep using it. Only trusted brands. No private sellers.

EARN POINTS
You’ll earn free loyalty points every hour you spend using Sharebert. Loyalty points are redeemable for prizes like gift cards, and video games. Some prizes are big, like Disney Vacations, laptops, and iPhones.

THINGS YOU LIKE
Sharebert will save everything you like to your Likes feed. So if you like something, but don't want to buy it now, you can always find it later.


Available in iTunes & Google Play Store.

- Think With Google, Analytics Case Study

What We Have Accomplished So Far

We came up with the idea for Sharebert almost two years ago. We started with nothing but that; an idea.


Since then we've built an amazing team of passionate people that have the skill-sets, and the will to make Sharebert succeed. Those same amazing people have built an amazing company dynamic with lasting friendships, plenty of incredible events, fast and efficient workflows, and a continually improving product.


Everyone working on Sharebert loves what they do, and wouldn't want to do anything else.

What we've done over the last year and a half:


  • Live tested algorithm with small test accounts & products.
  • Built minimum viable product web app and implemented user feedback to design layout and model users would enjoy and use. 
  • Hired an extremely qualified initial upper management team, including highly experienced C-Level executives & former CEOs, Valedictorian engineering teams, and experienced middle management.
  • We've already raised $125,000 in funding at $2.9M pre-money valuation. 
  • Sharebert has been featured in national and global media publications including Forbes, Inc, BiggerPockets, and more
  • We recently established influencer partnerships with more than 250M followers through social media platforms for massive scale marketing.
  • Finished product released to both iPhone & Google Play app stores.

Now we're ready to scale. Sharebert will be moving to the mass market.

Deals with Tons of Retailers

We've put together partnership agreements with tons of giant brands either through direct agreements or via advertising network partnerships.

Its safe to say you're able to find virtually everything on Sharebert.

Multi-Platform Finished Product

While we can all agree that no good app will ever be "finished", we've conducted lots of feedback focus groups, continuously refined, and launched Sharebert on both Apple iTunes and Google Play app stores as of the first week of April.


Of course, the app is totally free forever.


(And we suggest you download it now)

  • Average commission: $1.50
  • Average total sale revenue: $50
  • Annual user value at current trend: $50
  • We've already processed more than 125 orders (we just launched iOS last week)

Continuous Cost-Conscious Strategy

We've Been Featured in the Media

Our Product

Sharebert is a shopping app that pays you to browse, shop, and share and get discounts from more than 100,000+ brands and high-end products.


The app automatically learns what products users are interested in, and incentivizes sharing with their social circles. It doesn't matter what you're into. Sharebert gets you.


We make money through commissions tracked by cookies from both our users, and the people they've shared products with whether or not they've used the app.


It's like Ebates, but amplified through social.


Customer Problem

Sharebert allows users to find the products they're looking for from every store in one place.


Many of us find ourselves visiting Amazon for example, just to see if they sell the product we're looking for. Every product can be found on Sharebert, because Sharebert aggregates the inventories and offerings of nearly every major brand in one place.


The app is also a boredom killer. Swiping kills time and lets us discover cool things.

Whatever You're Into, Make It About You

How Sharebert Is Different From the Rest

Sharebert is currently the only shopping app that rewards users for browsing and sharing.


We will also have the first mover advantage in this business model. We've had tons of media coverage, and only expect to get more. We've also secured influencer partnerships with more than 250M total followers, and we are now acquiring users through these channels.


It takes time to put together the many brand relationships that we've secured over the last 2 years, again delaying potential competitors while we establish market dominance


Sharebert has also been entirely built and refined directly on user feedback, and will continue to morph based on what our users want and demand from our product.

How Sharebert Makes Money

Commissions

Sharebert is paid commissions on sales from all large anchor brands. We have tons of giant partners.

Free Trials

Sharebert gets paid for offering our users free trials, promo deals, and other cool perks.

Shares

Users share products they like with their social circles, and Sharebert gets paid when anyone buys.

Product Listings

Sharebert plans to charge boutique brands with large social followings to list their products.

Sharing Viral Growth

We make money through commissions tracked by cookies from both our users, and the people they've shared products with whether or not they've used the app.


We make commissions regardless of what device a shopper uses, and regardless of what product they purchase.

Our Market and Industry

*Stats from Business Insider Intelligence and Statista

Mobile shopping has grown 300% in the last 4 years to over $156B. It will grow to over $337B by 2020 according to BI Intelligence & Statista.


In fact, according to Think With Google, major retailer Target saw that 98% of their customers were shopping digitally and that 75% of them were starting on mobile. 


Seventy percent of millennials and ninety percent of gen z-ers shop online. Eighty percent of all online shopping is influenced by social media.


We're specifically targeting those that have a history of spending money through apps, and users who frequent multiple retail websites and shopping apps.


We also intend to view customer metrics and determine which users are the highest value, then use those demographics for continued micro-targeting of potential users that share similarities.

Details on the Competition:


  • Wish - They have a very strong following (spend $100M annually on Facebook ads), and very low prices. 15-30 day shipping and Chinese knockoff products. Offered $10B by Amazon
  • Ebates - Coupon driven with cash back. Ebates is from the late 90's, and not social. We believe that low cash back percentages aren't huge incentives for Gen Z and Millennials. Acquired for $1B
  • Spring - Spring has proven the model & is growing fast, but is niche and has no social sharing incentives like Sharebert. Valued at $500M

To our knowledge, none of these competitors feature as many products as Sharebert, reward their users for browsing like Sharebert, or feature a viral growth model & social media integration like Sharebert.

What Makes Our Team Special

Left to right: Aaron (Co-founder), Mike Main (Partner), Andy Main from UFC (Partner), Ali Mahvan (Co-founder & CEO)

Besides having a group of passionate people working day and night to bring this project to fruition, we have a team of absolute experts.


The Sharebert team is run by proven and seasoned entrepreneurs and advisers, and the product is built by dedicated and expert software engineers.

The Full Package Team

We've also partnered up with Wayne Reilly, a social media super-star with more than 252M total followers across all accounts.


Utilizing this reach and the combined business experience and marketing expertise of our team, we plan to acquire 200,000+ new users by the end of 2018

Invest in Sharebert Today!

We have a fast and aggressive growth strategy. With decades of experience in media, product marketing, celebrity partnerships, technology, and several multi-million dollar exits under our belts (see PropertyShark & Bisnow), the now completed Sharebert app will be taken to market with speed and precision.


We've already raised $125,000 for this project. All initial development is finished, and the completed product is available in both iTunes & Google Play app stores. We've acquired several hundred users simply by word of mouth, and are already generating revenue.


All funding from this campaign will be utilized to execute large scale user acquisition, and fund further research & development to add new features, fix bugs, and refine the user experience.


With or without this crowdfunding campaign, we will scale this company rapidly, and attempt to be acquired within 2 years. Don't miss out.

Investment Details


What is a Convertible Note?

A convertible note is short-term debt that converts into equity.  Convertible notes are structured as loans with the intention of converting to equity. The outstanding balance of the loan is automatically converted to equity at a specific milestone, often at the greater valuation of a later funding round. 


Why do startups raise investment capital using convertible notes?

Convertible notes (or “notes”) offer a simple, cheap, and fast method for startup funding as compared to traditional priced equity rounds. It also defers the more complex discussion of startup valuation to the next round of financing.


What does the maturity date indicate on a convertible note?

The maturity date of a note indicates the date when the note is due to be repaid to the investor along with any accrued interest, if it has not yet converted to equity.

In practice, in most situations, startup investors will not call for a note to be repaid at the maturity date, and will instead amend the note to extend the note’s maturity date, typically for a period of another year.


What is a cap in a convertible note?

A convertible note cap sets the maximum valuation at which the investment made via the convertible note can convert into equity. Investors in the convertible note typically get converted at the lesser of the valuation of the next qualified priced round and the cap.


What does the interest rate indicate on a convertible note?

The interest rate of a convertible note indicates how much interest accrues to the investor prior to the note’s conversion to equity or its repayment as cash when called.

On the west coast in the US, typical interest rates on most convertible notes are a nominal 2% (and cannot legally be lower or they might not be viewed as a convertible debt instrument). Elsewhere in the US, typical interest rates on most convertible notes range from 4-8%.

For example, with an interest rate of 8%, $100 invested on day 0 would convert as if $108 had been invested on day 365, if conversion happens on day 365.

From an investor standpoint, the interest rate term is not as impactful to startup returns as picking the right startups to fund, and as other convertible note terms such as the conversion cap and/or discount rate.


What happens to a convertible note if a company shuts down and goes out of business?

As holders of a debt instrument, holders of convertible notes come ahead of holders of equity in terms of repayment of any remaining assets they may have a claim to during liquidation. In concept, the holder of a convertible note will be paid ahead of all equity holders.


What happens to a convertible note if a company is acquired or merges with another company?

If a company is acquired or merges before a convertible note converts, the specifics of what a noteholder receives will depend on the specifics of their convertible note terms. The most company friendly terms call for the note to be repaid with interest to the investor. Most convertible notes call for the note to be converted to common shares in the company at a pre-set price just before the acquisition/merger, often at the same price as the cap of the note. Still others call for the noteholders to be paid back their principal investment plus interest, plus a premium amount, generally 0.25-1.5x of principal.


Does a convertible note holder have a choice about converting a note in an equity financing round?

The terms of conversion are usually listed in the convertible note. Typically, conversion to equity is automatic at the next equity raise, but may be conditional on a round meeting certain thresholds such as a minimum round size.
