Integration and Branding Processes
Touchpoint System Operator Agreement Integration Processes
Initially our team will review all Customer logos, banners, brand partnerships, existing merchandize and inventory as well as Customers content library to ensure that we seamlessly integrate it within the platform. Below is a more detailed process of what needs to be reviewed and completed before the Customer app goes live;
Content Library – Touchpoint will ensure that all of the content is catalogued correctly and has all information the Customer requires when looking at their content on the app. The Touchpoint platform has the ability to create paywalls throughout the platform so that the Customer can choose to place certain pieces of content behind paywalls, as well as allow the Customer to track user engagement throughout the app. Understanding the size, resolution, artist direction and other variables of the library is critical to the construction and therefore, the success of the app.
Artist Direction and Branding – Touchpoints platform is customized to the Customer, so the ability to have Customer brand logos, brand partnerships and banners throughout the platform can be discussed with our development team to ensure that the Customer brand and brand partner logos and media are recognizable and prevalent throughout the platform. If the Customer is not happy with their current branding, logos and banners, they can work with our team to develop branding and messaging to provide the greatest impact for a concise marketing and branding statement.
Website Integration- Our platform needs a mailing system for admin based reasonability's (example- email password resets) properly integrating the Customers’ existing website or curating a new one to fit within the Touchpoint platform is an important component in the setup process.
Profile Configuration- Integrating the customers' existing content with the platforms robust API’s will involve assigning and distributing admin profiles to enable content creators to properly live stream and post content accordingly. The profile system is tiered for customer configuration allowing for multiple users while still maintaining the audience user base.
Merchandize and Accessories – Touchpoint will be able to host, integrate, track and fulfill your merchandize store requirements. Our platform is designed to utilize a quick strike strategy to enable the most efficient use of digital merchandize marketing. In addition, with the ability to have push notifications this can allow users to get alerts for upcoming sales, ongoing sales and different discount codes etc. If our client does not have a merchandize line we have several strategic partnerships that allow you to meet with our team to help you design, create and distribute merchandize and accessories which can be a very profitable vertical within the platform. We are able to provide custom API’s to enable Touchpoint to seamlessly integrate with existing merchandize suppliers.
Live Streaming- Our dynamic streaming module is capable of adjusting bitrate and stream quality per user to maximize user outreach. Furthermore, our team will consult with you on different hardware setup, and network optimization that would give our clients the best quality for their live streamed content.
Scheduling and Promotions- We understand that content creators want to have less restrictions and more freedom to produce and distribute their content. At Touchpoint, we are dedicated to ensuring that our clients can do just that. If the Customer has special requests for some altercations made to the applications, visual look such as for brand partnerships, exclusive merchandize drops, holiday specials. Our team would be happy to work with the Customer to ensure that we are able to deliver the look and the feel of the platform within a timely manner.
Cross Marketing and Traffic Aggregation- It is always Touchpoints suggestion that the Customer maintain their current social media platforms to drive traffic and awareness to their new Touchpoint customized app. We have strategic partnerships that can work with the Customer on creating different advertising campaigns and marketing strategies to help with this process and increase engagement on current Social Media Platforms as well as grow the engagement on their new platform.
Quality Assurance - As with any development process, proper QA testing will be needed to hunt for bugs and other possible issues that may arise when establishing the Customer app. While the core platform of touchpoint is the same uniform in each instance, we are still creating an individual and unique version that provides the Customers with their own app for unique brand. This is a critical and final step in the setup process that ensures a fluid and successful launch of the app.
