Social commerce and the OWJO revolution
Dr. Johnny Ryan, OWJO speaks at The Great Escape Startup’s Forum
Dr. Johnny Ryan author of “A History of the Internet and the Digital Future” and Chief Evangelist at OWJO talks today at The Great Escape Startup’s Forum in Brighton, UK. Johnny will tell delegates at this premier music festival event about how OWJO is revolutionising the way musicians and fans engage with each other.
Driving next generation commerce on the web, OWJO is a portable online store that can be set up anywhere online. Johnny will be showcasing the OWJO stores’ ability to exist anywhere online – on your Facebook news feed, your blog, your website, your friend’s websites or even within video players such as Brightcove.
Johnny will demo how OWJO can process payments from all major credit and debit cards, from within the OWJO store – without click-offs and without the musician needing a merchant account. In other words, if you see an OWJO store in your Facebook news feed and like the music, you can purchase the music and receive your MP3 – all there and then. For the musician no IT knowledge or investment is required – just a small 7% commission is payable on sales.
Johnny will showcase how the OWJO store can be shared by your fans and friends across a myriad of platforms – true social commerce. Johnny is also announcing OWJO deals with Sony, EMI and International Sports Management who with OWJO are jointly launching The Andrew Flintoff Foundation official Facebook store.
Finally Johnny will join Danny Mac, Music Mind Exchange; Doug Richard, Serial Entrepreneur & Dragons Den Dragon; Scott Cohen, Co-Founder, The Orchard and Steve Milbourne, Creative Director, Sony Music for an audience forum and Q & A.
