About the brand GAY AND YOU?
Founded in 2012, GAY AND YOU? is a great brand with huge potential in many different areas.
Brand name registration was in 2016. It is officially a registered trademark and will be also included in that sale.
Online-Shop / e-commerce
I have built the Website with an Online Shop and created a stylish eco-friendly Unisex Shirt Collection. See Online-Shop here.
After much research work and trials, I finally have found a great on-demand supplier/producer/logistic-all-in-one-service-provider in Germany. Now the Online Shop is connected with their system. So, if there are any orders for a Shirt, the Shirt will be produced and shipped from that supplier and you don’t need to do anything. Now the Online-Shop is ready to start as well.
This whole Startup is self-funded from my own savings since 2012 and I have put a lot of passion and work into it until now.
I have not started to promote or market GAY AND YOU? yet or any fundraising campaign.
NOW ABOUT THE APP
What is included in this app sale?
iOS and also Android app! Both together:
iOS app has been firstly launched in December 2017, with fewer features. After that launch, the development of the Android app has started and from 2018 until End of 2019 both apps have been undergone many tests, bug fixes, a few changes and new features have been added. Overall the app got optimized time by time since the first launch in 2017.
Now it is finished and ready for the LGBTQI+ community and ready for the market!
iOS (Launched December 2017)
Android (Launched May 2018)
With all Source Codes, Developers Contact, Hosting/Server Contact Details, Users Databases, All Credentials, Admin Dashboard, Design Material and Collateral etc.
Dashboard panel to manage/edit SHOP products, LET'S GO!, ACTIVITIES and QUOTES section.
Also blocking specific Users, all can be done at this Admin Dashboard.
What is required to keep the app operational?
The app could run all by yourself and by the content of the users. That was the intention and the app has been designed this way. It should be self-sustainable, because me myself, I have very limited time and limited resources.
Highlights of the app
Very unique and one of a kind
Informative and can be used as a Travel Guide because of the "LET'S GO!" and the "ACTIVITIES" section
It can also be used as a dating app or just for meeting new friends. You can see all users nearby you, when you check out the left menu bar "USERS WORLDWIDE" or the "NEW FRIENDS" area on the home screen.
Basically every user can use the app and post/list content in the "LET'S GO!" and the "ACTIVITIES" section! For example, you are an owner of a club or bar, then you can list your own location in the "LET'S GO!" section and post your weekly event flyer images, deals, everything, and get exposure to all other users. (With the dashboard admin panel, you can delete posts, in case of misuse)
There is the QUOTES section, the yellow blinking button on the bottom area. With the dashboard admin panel, you can fill in any quote or text. Future idea and plan is to place some ads/text messages from users. Users can submit their own text message and it is easy to let them appear there. See example "James R.". Implementation of engagement is great and it is fun to interact with users
