Published / by BDtop / 1 Comment on FreedomPop Cuts New Space In Wireless Service

Nicholas Constantinopoulos is the President of FreedomPop a wireless provider of free mobile services which include data, text, and voice. They have launched not only in the United States but also in England moving into those markets initially using the free services. This is however just an initial move to get their foot in the market, as soon as they are established they begin by identifying market segments that can be better served with additional paid services. As of this interview, their conversion rate from the free services to paid services in the United States have been running at 40% while the conversion to paid subscribers in the United Kingdom has been running at about 50%. Another of their benefits to the marketplace is they can export their expertise to developing markets to help them to accelerate the monetization of their customers their data. Even though with this business model you would think that the mobile network operators could offer the same services that haven’t been the case at all. While FreedomPop has been running an up to 50% paid subscriber conversion rate the MVNOs that have tried offering this have been converting at only around 10%.

In the United States and in the United Kingdom FreedomPop uses the Sprint Network. It has also just launched a global SIM with free mobile data across 25 other countries. They have also partnered with Sprint to provide 3G and 4G service for their customers.

Today FreedomPop has hundreds of thousands of new subscribers and has started the first nationwide unlimited WiFi, voice, and text service for only $5 dollars a month.

Since the initially funding for this new venture posed a problem, that has been addressed by raising 7.5 million dollars in a first round and an additional 4.3 million dollars in a Series A1 financing from Mangrove Capital and Doll Capital Management. In June of last year, they raised an additional $30 million dollars in a series B funding round from Partech Ventures in addition to several more fundraisers to put the company on track to a profitable operation.

WEN Hair Challenge Delivers Smooth, Shiny Locks to Beauty Blogger

Published / by BDtop / 1 Comment on WEN Hair Challenge Delivers Smooth, Shiny Locks to Beauty Blogger

Beauty bloggers hold an enviable position, because they receive lots of cool hair, skin care and beauty products to sample and usually at no cost. Emily McClure of Bustle.com recently took the WEN 7-day hair challenge and gave up her regular shampooing for an entirely new way of cleansing.
It’s known as the no-poo method, and although it’s been imitated by others, Wen remains the leader with super healthy, sulfate-free cleansing conditioners. Emily was looking to revive her flat, limp locks with shine and manageability and was hoping the WEN system could deliver in a major way. She decided to snap selfies on every day of the hair challenge, so readers could see how WEN was holding up.

WEN by Chaz Dean features a holistic and clean way of living with unique cleansing conditioners that both cleanse and condition without detergent-filled shampoos.

Emily chose the FIG cleansing conditioner, which happens to be WEN’s most hydrating formula. Celebrity stylist Chaz developed FIG with marigold and chamomile extracts. These gentle, effective ingredients help repair damage done by chemical processes and heated styling tools.

Emily admitted to her readers right away, that she is a nighttime shower gal, but to keep the WEN challenge in the proper routine, she decided to shower and cleanse in the AM. She described how the Wen formula gave instant body and shine to her newly washed locks.

Things were going well, until Emily veered off course. One night, she decided to shower and use WEN, but by morning, her hair was flat and greasy. Another morning, she skipped the shower and daily cleanse, and her locks showed the limp results.

Venezuelans are upset, but not ready to trust opposition party

Published / by BDtop / 1 Comment on Venezuelans are upset, but not ready to trust opposition party

Small protests are breaking out daily across Venezuela as the country is in an economic crisis. Diaz Granados found that prices are skyrocketing, and there are shortages of just about everything in the stores. There are also problems with basic services like water, sewer and electricity.

People are angry, but they are not necessarily ready to blame president Maduro enough to vote to remove him from office, according to a story in Reuters. The opposition to Maduro’s Socialist government are trying things like constitutional amendments to get him ousted, and they are trying to blame him for the crisis, and hoping to link into the anger that seems to be festering across the nation.

The only problem is, Granados says that people are not buying the idea that the opposition would be any better. The opposition had a campaign kickoff to get a recall going, but it drew barely a thousand people and not much enthusiasm.

In 2014 the opposition organized protests that left 40 people dead, and many Venezuelans blame them for causing those deaths.

The protests that are happening tend to be spontaneous and rather small. But there were about 1,000 of them in the first two months of the year, which is about 17 per day, according to the Venezuelan observatory of social conflict.
