“The audio file was removed when we switched hosts. Sorry. The cost was prohibitive. If you need the file, contact us and we will send it.”
Kyle Johnson – Founder of Bixy.com
Kyle and his team built a product called AudioAnywhere (kinda like a web-based Spotify but with no software install). They soon realized that their model had the same problem as so many others: consumers prefer free, ad-supported media and very few consumers are willing to pay for subscriptions. The problem is that the ads don’t make nearly enough money to support web-based models because consumers ignore the ads. Kyle’s team is fixing this with Bixy. The goal is to provide publishers of music, video, news and apps with five times more revenue per ad. The solution is simple: put consumers in charge of their advertising experience and give them rewards for brands they love and products they want. Bixy launched in January 2013 and they are scaling and tweaking throughout 2013.
