AJ Cihla, Director of International Growth

Working with mobile operators is important to boost our brand coverage and launch win-win partnerships that eventually benefit users. Yiannis and the Selfie team help us navigate the complex telco ecosystem and works across the board to meet multiple KPIs on zero rating and beyond.

Dave Macli, CEO & Co-Founder

Zero rating is critical yet hard for any music service; at the end, we want to compete fairly with other music apps that already participate in such zero rating plans and help our users listen to their favorite artists while on the go. Working with Selfie allowed us to quickly join certain zero rating plans in Europe, and we expect to expand this significantly over the next few months.

Juan Velez, CEO VM Mexico and Colombia

We try hard to delight our users, and digital benefits like zero-rating and premium subscription giveaways have been critical to do this. Working with Selfie Networks allowed us to quickly partner with a world leading dating application, better understand the impact of such partnerships on our users and partners, and we are looking forward to similar initiatives.
