Understanding fans has also never been easier with b.stage’s full data insights. With access to user behavior and the freedom to collect data from fans online, creators are equipped with unparalleled information that can help navigate the best way to run their platform.
Aaron Bae along with Co-Founder June Kay are known as the original fandom industry experts due to their integral roles in the successful design of Weverse and its e-commerce Weverse shop with major K-Pop artists including BTS. During their time at Weverse, they discovered a void in the market and decided to create bemyfriends in 2021 with the sole purpose of building a complete advanced solution for creator and business needs in the fandom industry, using the K-Pop fandom mechanism.
bemyfriends’ vision of helping teams design with purpose and build personal relationships is already taking the industry by storm as proven by their $2.5 million seed round followed by an additional $8 million more raised to date for global service build-up needs.
The global beta service will follow a similar format to the successful beta launch in Korea released just a few months ago. The global beta service will be open for applications through January 19th. All creators accepted will be informed the following week. The chosen beta testers will be able to experience all b.stage functions as they are rolled out, and will receive credit for a six months service fee, also known as our essential package, after the official service launch.
