Riingo inc. (“Riingo”, or the “Company”), began operations on October 4, 2019 with the purpose of providing a mobile phone rate plan for members, including individuals and families, called “Riingo Mobile”, with a discounted price offered through Riingo’s membership program that individual customers cannot obtain on their own, online or in stores. The Company’s legal structure was formed as a corporation under the laws of the State of Utah on October 4, 2019. The primary executive managers of the Company are Jeremiah Cox, Metta World Peace, Alan Clegg, Ron Popiel, Jimmi Toro, Heidi Buech, Paul Gibbons, and Brandon Sunday.
Riingo’s forward business plan is focused on offering a mobile phone rate plan that is targeted towards member subscribers, called “Riingo Mobile”. Riingo will also offer a plan geared specifically for kids, (metered and managed by the parent based on the behavior of their child), with a suite of parental oversight tools that allow for pausing of the child’s phone remotely so they can focus on chores, schoolwork, etc. when the parent is not home to physically take the phone to remove the distraction. Parents who become Riingo members will now have access to a “member’s only” discounted price on their mobile phone rate plans, coupled with a simple set of tools to help teach kids proper time management in using these technology devices.
Riingo also intends to offer educational curriculum, called Riingo Academy, delivered through smartphones and tablets, to its members. These modules of curriculum aim to teach parents and kids early career planning and “financial literacy” skills, with a tracking mechanism to help them to plan, earn and save for upcoming and milestone purchases. Riingo Academy will deliver a sleek user interface that helps kids, (and parents), to visually see progress with color charts and other graphically appealing displays, motivating them to keep up the good work and achieve success.
With individuals involved in the Company such as: Metta World Peace, Brandon Copeland and Sam Bracken, Riingo has aggregated an experienced and powerful trio of representatives focused on a mission to bring about positive change for kids globally. Speaking in school districts across the U.S. to start, recording Riingo presentations along the way, the Company will seek to reach millions of families and individuals, provide them a unique phone plan, and guide them on a life-long journey of achievement and success.
Operationally, the Company intends to build a transactional website that allows for Riingo members to refer their family and friends to use the service, and earn a “referral spiff” for helping Riingo to grow its membership base. The Company intends to develop a call center for sales and service support, and will also create a growing video library, based on the questions we receive, to answer our member’s questions in an entertaining and immersive "sight and sound" format that engages support and encourages sharing of the videos through social media.
The Company intends to market its products and services using multiple tactics and sales channels. One such channel will involve speaking engagements in school districts across the U.S. to start, called “Get Smarter” Symposiums, utilizing the celebrity status of our co-founder, Metta World Peace, to produce an uplifting and inspiring event that teaches kids and parents how to face adversity with resilience, and how to manage their time in a way that sets them up for success. A big part of that planned success is dependent on how a child decides to manage time spent on digital screens, with a more favorable balance of time spent pursuing the development of their own skills for future awesomeness. The Company will also deploy typical marketing and social media strategies, utilizing video captured at the “Get Smarter” Symposiums, and edited to highlight important aspects of Riingo’s mission, to create exposure and drive interest in the Company and its “Smarterphone Solutions."
Riingo will use technology to help foster a purpose-driven life, teaching kids about their potential, and helping parents to better mentor their children along life’s pathway to achievement and success.
The Company is currently managed by seasoned business and sector professionals dedicated to the success of the Company and efficient execution of its planned operations.
