Internet is a horizontal media.
Time for vertical trickle down of information, communication & governance is over.

People know it.
They desperately need a collective platform to shape a better society.

     5 billion people periodically exercise their right to choose their representatives.       If only they could collectively leverage this power in their constituency.

But the conventional internet of ‘one hat fits all’ on the line of FB or Twitter
fails to get around the differences of geography, culture & economy.   

Votebook is internet of hyper-local platforms,
giving every constituency in every democracy a digital life of its own,
where its citizens, leaders, governments & businesses
interact, interface & connect.

People, Government, Leaders, Parties, Businesses and Elections all are online.  
All they need is one digital waterhole.

Votebook. 


Votebook is an answer to the helplessness of ‘what my single vote can do’.

It collectively empowers enlightened citizens to evaluate, compare, monitor, audit & complain to seek accountability & good governance, by leveraging their votes in the constituency.

Virtual constituencies with networked voters induce positive competition among leaders & parties to be one up on rivals by showcasing themselves & addressing the concerns of the community to grow their reach and credibility.

 Consequently, this galvanizes service agencies & administration to perform.
And businesses to explore the possibility of reaching a universal target group

By bringing together engaged communities to share information, Votebook yields social, political and commercial dividends.


We have built a neutral, multi-lingual, hyper-local platform with technology convergence that serves:

  • New Geographies:
    Digital Hubs of Constituencies from Panchayats to Parliament, County to Capitol.
     
  • New Clients /Stakeholders:
    Voters, Leaders, Parties, Governments, Corporates, NGOs.
     
  • New Engagements for People:
    Information; Network; Complaint; Audit; Evaluate/Compare/Monitor; Communication; etc.
     
  • New Media: Internet of People (IoP)
    For every adult citizen in any democracy.
    Where internet comes to people.

  • New Services
    - Leaders  -  Showcase; Call center; Constituency, Election and Media management.
    - Parties -  Showcase, Promotion, Cadre management.  
    - Governments  -  Showcase, Promotion, Complaint Escalation Matrix, Feedback.
     
  • New Revenue Stream
    - Advertisement  -  From local pop & mom store to Largest MNCs.
    - Subscription  -  Premium services to stakeholders with mobile convergence to all.






Votebook benefits from the interdependence of all stakeholders.

Votebook has the strongest and most powerful social foundation – Collectively leveraging people's votes to bring peace, prosperity, accountability, transparency and good governance.

Votebook grows organically.

People - Are driven by the network’s ability to change the system. Network brings political power as it grows which brings more people to the fold. 

Leaders and political parties - are driven by the growing social network of voters and its ability to change their future. And also by the compulsion to claim the virtual constituency and stay one up against political rival. 






Product Development:
Our prototype for India, Janpratinidhi.com,
has been developed and tested and it serves as proof of concept.

Customer Acceptance: 10K registered users, 20K FB organic likes, 40K leaders profile, 5K constituency hubs, 40K pages Google indexed, 9800K hits in GE2014

Patents/IP: The platform is a business-based idea that has been registered under the Copyright Act.

Partnerships: Nielsen entered a vendor agreement with us to provide facilities to our premium members.

CISCO WebEx provides the entire spectrum of services for people-leader conferencing, including live streaming and web conferencing.

Distribution: While test marketing our platform during the two-day International Franchise Exhibition in Delhi, we received about 1,000 serious enquiries for franchise in constituency for a fee. 

Social Proof: A national newspaper in India wanted to do co-branding & use Votebook to spread news to the remotest part of India

One national TV channel in India wanted exclusive rights to leaders using Votebook Premium Services as a condition to fund.

Two regional parties showed interest to buy out the platform at its blueprint stage.

CNRI a 7000 strong NGO confederation for Rural India has agreed to do a social outreach program in rural India for Votebook. This would be used in all developing economies.
Votebook & Election Commissions:
Election Commissioners of various democracies have found Votebook in line with their strict neutrality norms. In fact, the Indian prototype of Votebook was launched by ex-Chief Election Commissioner of India Dr. S. Y. Quraishi.  

Web Presence: 40,600 pages from our site have been indexed by Google. 





 

Moving forward, our focus is to build our commercial model before GE 2019 for India & before 2020 for Presidential Elections in US. 

We will build the systems and processes needed to manage our partners, service providers and services which Votebook offers; Scale up our platform & NHC (National Help Center); Develop a versatile mobile app;

We will build a franchise network in all ACs of India as go to marketing strategy to market our services and products to stake-holders & advertisers. Platform’s proximity to power & the recession free business of elections will make VOTEBOOK an attractive business opportunity for its constituency franchisees. 

The franchise fee would help us in branding, take up social out reach programs and public relation campaigns to make it popular in India and expand abroad.
