Kedin, a social network for events, is a project that I intend to follow closely because I believe it will set trends as far as business models are concerned. The founders of the company have a broad experience and very good contacts in the sector that enable them to reach deals we are going to talk about now.
The first deal is the commercialization by Telefonica of the advertising on the Kedin site. The department in Telefonica that deals with the advertising on the portals of the Telefonica group will also take the responsibility from now on for selling the advertising spaces on this site. In Kedin, they preferred a commercial deal with Telefonica instead of with some other advertising agencies because they know the great commercial force of the online sales department of Telefonica and believe that this will bring them some important benefits. Besides, the deal contemplates the realization of joint actions of promotion on the digital platforms of Telefonica, something that will help a great deal in publicizing Kedin.
A second deal is related to the upcoming launch of channels on Kedin, similar to the ones on YouTube, that are directed to the companies that want to promote events of their sector. The first theme channels on Kedin will be dedicated to events of Fashion, and events of Motorcycling, thanks to the deal reached with the editorial group G y J Motorpress.
Three months after the launch of Kedin, the figures are very encouraging: more than 10.000 events in its database, more than 2.000 registered users, and 100.000 unique users in the last month.
