Harmony enables SMBs to engage with their customers and extend their brand by developing their own interactive communities that capitalize on the latest in user-generated content (UGC), video and social networking capabilities. Moreover, Harmony provides an abundant feature-set at a significantly lower cost than comparatively available products.

Harmony also offers content monetization capabilities enabling publishers to keep 100% of third-party ad revenue; an administrative dashboard with extensive site monitoring; andcontent moderation tools to ensure quality and control in a brand-safe environment.

Despite the bevy of existing social media platform offerings, we struggled to find a scalable solution that offered the functionality and reliability to power our soccer-based, social networking site at an affordable price point, " said Dick Rempt, CEO, Talents Media. Reality Digital Harmony was the only solution that delivered a rich set of tools that could help our members to connect, share content, and invite members from other social networks. We are delighted that Harmony has helped us realize our goal of instantly creating an interactive environment targeted towards player development, exposure and discovery. "

As our business grows in popularity, so does the demand for greater access to our mixed martial arts fighters, who are celebrities in their field. We needed to build a social community that not only enhances the experience for our fan base, but also promotes our sport to new audiences, " said Chuck Vaughn, vice president of business development, MMAX Enterprises. As one of the world`s fastest growing sports, we need a flexible solution that supports a cross-platform marketing strategy and ensures brand consistency no matter where our content is distributed. Reality Digital Harmony allows us to leverage live broadcast capabilities, television programming and extended social networking features that bring our fighters closer to the audience " creating deeper engagement, for our fan base, with our sport and our brand. "

Reality Digital offers SMBs a more exciting way to engage with their customers and visitors by offering a social media platform that can be implemented right away, and is a cost-effective alternative to less robust solutions. Reality Digital Harmony is ideal for:

  • SMBs with limited budgets that are new to social media
  • Startups and entrepreneurs looking to create a proof of concept for investment and funding
  • Site owners looking for extensive design flexibility and configurability quickly and simply
  • Enterprise marketing departments looking to launch a UGC contest immediately
  • Agencies and developers seeking a turnkey solution to quickly design and build prototypes as campaign testing grounds
  • Businesses running multiple video-led marketing projects, such as video tutorials, user submitted video initiatives and viral videos

This economy has resulted in tighter budgets, reduced staff and scant marketing resources for companies, making it difficult to experiment with social media initiatives, " said Cynthia Francis, CEO of Reality Digital. Reality Digital Harmony is an entry-level social media platform that makes it easy for businesses to create an online community to enhance their connection with customers in a brand-safe environment. A business can quickly build and configure a site without assistance and start reaching their customers within a matter of minutes. Harmony is customizable, stable and affordable for both small to mid-size businesses and departments within larger companies and allows our customers to remain competitive and innovative as they promote their brand, without breaking the bank.
