An ARM is a natural extension of the human body, similarly ARMS will be the third ARM for an artist, to achieve more, to gain full potential of their stardom. An artists digital rights are often complicated, with them owning next to none or in bits and pieces. ARMS gives them the power to be in control and build their digital asset and more importantly be in direct touch with their consumers.
With ARMS, any celebrity can own the I.P – which is the first in the industry, the platform, the rights, and most importantly – the control and monetization of the fan base around the world.
Razr Media’s A.R.M.S- A premium fan base management platform is in the form of a mobile app/tv app/ AI/VR/ 3D game connecting artists/sportsperson with their global fans and acting as an alternate revenue stream for them. Already having signed up with more than 15 top Bollywood artists with the first set of launches to begin from April 2017, Razr aims to develop & scale ARMS on a global level starting from Europe and UK where the parent company is already operational. A.R.M.S will be a revolutionary mobile product with all access and rights to celebrities who often complain of not being provided stats by their digital companies.
Brands that artists endorse, can now advertise on the artist’s platform directly to a much more engaged audience. An artist is no more an ambassador, he is the media house, distributor of his own content being at the centre of the ecosystem.
