About

Hello Kickstarters! 

I’m Simon, founder of Braggie. A few months ago, I set out a plan, a plan to share our offline experiences in a radical new way, a way in which the world has never seen before. This plan would give our favourite offline experiences the credit that they deserve. 

 The posts that people share on social media are things that they want other people to not only see but appreciate, things that they want to brag about. Think about it, what was the last photo you shared? Why did you share it? I bet you’ve checked since you’ve posted it to see how many likes or comments you’ve had! 

 The term 'braggie' is becoming very popular across all social media platforms, it has even been called "the new selfie" by Telegraph and Three Mobile have recently launched a photo competition called #holidaybraggie. 

 My business partner Forrest and I are currently developing the first version of Braggie - an app which we have funded ourselves which is set to be released this Summer. 

 Our aspiration is to be THE next big photo sharing platform. On 'Braggie,' you’re admired for your accomplishments, while checking out everyone else's. Simply tag & upload a picture. In minutes, you'll see how you stack up against the rest of the worlds photos with the same hashtag and many other ways. 

 So why do we want funding? We need funding for some exciting new features that would like to add to the next version of braggie! Features that will propel Braggie way beyond the competition. We’ve put together a short feature of clips that we would brag about! Check out the braggie feed on our website to see what the rest of the world is bragging about! Enjoy.

Be a part of history. #braggie

Risks and challenges

WHY DO WE NEED FUNDING?

The first version of braggie has all the features it needs to launch, but we would like to add more features, such as:

-Video
-Private Messaging
-Geo-Location

and we would like to link the app to our website!

RISKS AND CHALLENGES:

1. Keeping the user engaged. In order to keep our future users committed and engaged with braggie, we must keep them excited! Our plan to do this is by adding new features periodically - for example: geo-location, video, and private messaging.

2. Keeping user information safe. User privacy is something we take very seriously. Having already invested a large sum into the best hosting services and back office around, we want to avoid spam, scams, and phishing at any cost - we plan to routinely monitor and update our security systems.

3. Battling the competition. We thrive on competition, we are aware that our ambitions are big and we are paving a way for a new type of app - we know that others will copy and compete. We have future plans and features which will knock the competition out of the water – after all, braggie is all about competition.

BRAGGIE STORY:

Braggie was born out of a love for adventure – both offline and online.

A light bulb moment came to Simon, Braggie’s founder, ‘what is loved offline is very often appreciated online’.

Following this rather simple but fundamental recognition, it dawned that we actively, almost subconsciously, want to share online, what we’re doing offline. By filling our online world with our offline moments we are doing only one thing, bragging. We brag online, about our offline content because we think, being brutally honest – we want, others to appreciate it.

Simon set out a plan that would share our offline adventures in a radical new way, a way in which the world has never seen before. This plan will give our favourite offline experiences the credit they deserve.

Some time after, Forrest – an entrepreneurial American thrill seeker contacted Simon after hearing of this plan. Following a brief but important meeting, a partnership was formed, a partnership which will re-create social media as we know it. Causing our offline experiences to collide with our online world.
