MIV Catch Up - Azoomee

Azoomee co-founders Douglas and Estelle Lloyd, joined us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on Wednesday 19th July 2017 at 4pm.  Azoomee is a safe app, designed for primary school children, and offers the best TV shows, games and audiobooks.

@azoomeekids Thanks for joining us today, could you just explain to us what it is you do? #MIVReveals

Thanks for the invite! Azoomee is a safe entertainment service for kids. It's available on any mobile device.  My name is Douglas. I'm co-founder of Azoomee. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids What is your #business background and what inspired you to #startup your company? #MIVReveals

I co-founded Azoomee with my wife @estelle_lloyd. We have 3 amazing daughters, who are inspired our #business #idea!  There's no easy way to introduce your kids to the online world while keeping them safe. That’s why we created Azoomee!  We're serial entrepreneurs and before Azoomee we co-founded VB/Research, which we sold to a FTSE250 media company. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids Can you tell us a little more about your entertainment app and what it offers? #MIVReveals

Azoomee gives children thousands of videos, games and audiobooks to explore, along with a new safe and parent-verified chat service.We're passionate about showing children how to be smart, safe and kind online with fun #internetsafety content, coding games and more. At its heart, Azoomee is about giving children a fun and rewarding internet experience and preparing them for the online world. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids What type of activities are available with the subscription? #MIVReveals

An Azoomee subscription offers a huge library of videos like Lassie and Horrible Histories. New content is added weekly.  There are loads of kids’ games to enjoy too - endless runners, racing, brain-training, puzzles - you name it!  We know a 4 year old is different to a 9 year old and we let you create unique profiles for your kids so they get the content they want! #MIVReveals

Now we're super excited to launch Azoomee Chat! It lets kids send messages safely to parent-verified friends and family.  Parents don't need to buy other apps! With new games, videos and audiobooks every week, kids never get bored. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids What were the key considerations when developing your app? #MIVReveals

First and foremost, #safety! It's at the heart of everything we do, from building new features to choosing videos and games.  Our commitment to safety is why we're so proud to be a supporting partner of @NSPCC. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids What have been the biggest challenges in your first year of #business? #MIVReveals

Starting a business is a rollercoaster. We've had some amazing moments and some real challenges.  One of the biggest challenges is building the right team. Hire the right people who share your vision and everything is possible! We're very lucky to have such an experienced team who are passionate about keeping kids safe and entertained. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids How do you #advertise your business? #MIVReveals

Like many businesses, Facebook in an important channel. We're also active on Adwords and Apple's new search ads, among others. #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids What makes your business unique and differentiates you from your #competitors? #MIVReveals

We're very different to other entertainment services. We give children everything they love to do online in one safe place. Whether it's safely chatting with friends, learning to code or listening to audiobooks in the car, we have something to enjoy! #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids What does success look like to you? #MIVReveals

We've got big ambitions. Every family needs Azoomee and we hope they all give it a try! #MIVReveals

@azoomeekids what does the future hold - any exciting plans we should keep an eye out for? #MIVReveals
