@SharkReach, Inc, Poised to Skyrocket SHRK Guaranteed Universal Pictures 7 Million Impressions For STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON Social Media Marketing Campaign…DELIVERED 131 Million!

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 2.33.19 PMSharkReach, Inc. (“SharkReach®” or the “Company”) (OTC Markets: SHRK), a millennial influence marketing company today announced that it is currently working on a Straight Outta Compton Blu-ray campaign for Universal Pictures award winning film as a follow up to its highly successful pre-release collaboration with the studio.

Forbes recently ran an interview with the Founder and newly appointed CEO of the Company, Steve Smith, where he elaborated on the effectiveness of the Company’s social media campaign to drive awareness and create viewer demand prior to the release of the major motion picture.

Due in part to the Company’s results for Universal Pictures, the Forbes Contributor of the article said that SharkReach: “… is poised to skyrocket after recently going public.”

For the full article go to:

SharkReach was tasked by Universal Pictures to activate influencers to drive awareness for the film because the studio had only seen modest results in working with other influencer marketing companies.

However, success came when Universal executives chose to give SharkReach exclusive access over all other influencer companies.

Doug Neil, of Universal Pictures said the SharkReach “… stand(s) out in the ‘influencer marketing space… (they) executed a compelling and unique program…  for the film Straight Outta Compton.”

Straight Outta Compton really blows away anything else that we’ve done, and what anyone else has done in the theatrical space.” Said Steve Smith, SharkReach Founder and CEO.

Smith commented on the incredible success in consumer awareness the Company created for Universal’s film.  “Our commitment to Universal Pictures, in terms of the numbers of guaranteed impressions promised, was just under 7 million impressions… but what we actually delivered… was right around 131 million… 120 million more than we had promised them.”

logo-sharkreach-1Searching for an answer to explain the overreaching success in the number of impressions created, Universal Executive Doug Neil pointed to the Company’s masterful cultivation, use of and its handling of relationships with the talent, their families and those other significant influencers in their inner circle.

“The authentic relationship they have with their talent makes them stand out in the ‘influencer marketing’ space. That’s the piece that is usually missing in other influence marketing programs.” added Neil.

Smith said “We want the client to be happy, the brands to be happy, and most of all the talent to be excited about what we’re doing which usually leads to an over-performance by the talent. Just like all of us, if you like what you are doing, agree with it… want to do it… you will usually give it your best!

We were also lucky that we had a number of the sons of founding NWA members go to the places in the movie in Compton that only they could access because they are family. We took a simple thing where we have hip-hop talent do social posts about a hip-hop movie.

Our process is understanding what the client wants and then leveraging our close, direct working relationship with the talent to conceptualize content that… will be effective to capture the intended audience.”

This Compton campaign was so effective that Javon Frazier, Professor of Strategic Marketing at UCLA, has based an entire semester on this campaign.

As to the Company’s relations with Universal Pictures, Smith said: We’re actually working on the campaign for this summer’s upcoming blockbuster ‘Warcraft’ based on the best-selling videogame right now for the studio, which will be the next theatrical to take over the socialsphere!”

Millennials Demand exacting standards in the products and services that are essential to satisfying their social conscience and personal needs. They are the first of several generations to come that will veer away from traditional media.

They do NOT watch television, and they do not trust brands and commercials.

Their purchasing decisions are impacted by the individuals, friends, and celebrities that they follow on Social Media and YouTube.

Historically, and in this order, television, radio, magazine and newspaper advertising were the ways to reach clients. To reach more clients and to increase sales, Celebrity Endorsements were added to Brands to increase the effectiveness of these traditional media outlets.

Sponsored Social Media… Influencer Marketing… now sits atop the field!
