We seriously consider to dedicate a special column to the apps we really like that are quite astonishing in their appeal. And our latest favorite is Cameo – the app that allows users to buy personalized video messages from celebrities.
How to use Cameo App?
Cameo is a platform that connects outdated and often c-listed veteran celebrities from music, sports and film industries with their fans who’d like to send their friends personalized video messages.
The platform is a mediator between those who’d like to, for example, wish their friend a happy birthday with a personalized video from, say, Charlie Sheen or Snoop Dogg (who is also one of the company’s investors).
The prices are individual for each celebrity and start from as little as $15 then going up to $3000 max. Cameo takes 25% from each purchase. Interesting, though, that users can only make a purchase via web to enable Cameo skip on Apple’s outrageous 30% fee on the AppStore.
A Brilliant Business Idea
Show-business runs fast and there’s a vast amount of former celebrities who’d like not only to get some extra pay but to excite and amaze those who still remember them. And when it comes to celebrities, people have different tastes.
Going through the app I noticed Omar Epps and Jennifer Morrison from one of my favorite shows House M.D. Now, my sister loves House M.D. as well (so much she even decided to rewatch it recently), so I now consider congratulating her with the upcoming happy birthday, ordering a personalized video message from the two actors of the main cast from House M.D. Great, right? Even though most of the Generation Z don’t even know about House M.D. at all (too bad for them).
Can Be Made Better
Though Steven Galanis and Martin Blencowe, the creators of Cameo, want to expand to ensure that the app survives and not just a passing trend, they wish to do so by attracting more talent internationally. Cameo already has competitors like CelebVM, Greetzly, and Starsona who are very unsuccessful. But we think that the idea can be improved with better software and we guarantee to deliver it, making a better web solution (not so buggy and slow as you might’ve noticed) and also helping you to elevate your country’s former hot showbiz personalities on your own.
To build a Cameo-like app you should create a great interactive and intuitive design backed by top-notch software that along with clever promotion and a proper marketing strategy will beсome a great platform similar to that of Cameo but to serve in your local area.
Now that you know what is the Cameo app, it is up to you to start developing a project of your own. Countries like Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Mexico and and France have a lot of c-list celebs that beg to be remembered again. And our experienced team can help you to develop design and make an even better version of the app like Cameo.
