AdTech startup Tomi raises Seed funding to make real estate ads perform as well as ecommerce

Published

on

Industries like real estate, automotive, and financial services have long and offline sales cycles and digital advertising tends not to perform well in these areas. The conversion rates are low and because the real-world assets are offline the temptation of advertisers is to buy leads and clicks, which can inflate customer acquisition costs. People are browsing but they end up buying offline, basically.

A new startup, Tomi plans to address this issue by processing a user’s behavior on a company’s website (using a tracking pixel, combined with ad APIs and CRMs) to help companies reach customers more in the way an ecommerce business would.

It’s now raised a $1M seed round from investors including Begin Capital and Phystech Leadership Fund.

Founded by Konstantin Bayandin — a former senior director of digital marketing and technology at Compass and chief marketing officer at Ozon, ‘Russia’s Amazon’ — Tomi competes against similar AdTech companies such as Anytrack, Sociaro, Meetotis, Alytics and Postclick.

However, the difference, Bayandin says, is that Tomi “focuses on offline conversions and works with multiple ad channels, such as Facebook, Instagram and Google.”

Bayandin says: “Real-estate companies would love to leverage online ads in order to sell their inventory but it turns out to be too expensive and difficult. People like to browse but rarely convert and most of these transactions happen offline. So real-estate clients don’t know how to optimize for their real buyers. Tomi uses machine learning to analyze the way real buyers browse the website and optimize ad campaigns towards conversions.”

The background to all this is that with Apple closing down IDFA, Google planning to remove third-party cookies from its Chrome browser, and the latest iOS 14.5 update allowing users opt out of “personalized ads”, the entire ad business is in flux, so new tools are going to be required. Bayandin says Tomi is part of this new wave of AdTech.

The Power of Recommerce: The Second Hand Online Economy

Have you ever needed to find a specific item from your childhood?  A limited-edition novelty that you just missed out on? A one of a kind collector’s item? If you have ever found yourself in this position then you have probably frantically rushed to eBay to search listing upon listing for your treasured keepsake. 

This phenomenon has swept across America and has allowed this ecommerce giant to rename the game to recommerce and create a whole new market for items that were once relegated to flea markets and garage sales. eBay estimates that the average American household has at least 36 items in their household that are worth more than $3,500. This estimation has allowed them to create a niche market of untraditional sellers in 2020 alone. 

eBay provided a haven for furloughed workers during the pandemic to take control of their lives and earn extra income to help sustain themselves during months that they were uncertain of where their income was coming from. The ability to provide a space for ordinary people to become sellers offered a priceless experience and exponential growth for the platform. 

eBay also aids in the quest for sustainability. By fostering the spirit of second hand, the recommerce revolutionary contributes to the global effort to lessen our carbon footprint. This commitment to a greener future not only allows for consumers to do something positive, but it also makes purchases meaningful again. 

The continual commitment to accessibility and sustainability has allowed eBay to maintain positive growth even in a period of economic uncertainty. 81% of people in generation Z have said that buying pre-owned goods have become more and more common in past years. This means that society is normalizing the sale of second hand goods. 

All in all, 2020 has been a pivotal year for everyone, but eBay has made phenomenal gains and moves that have shown their commitment to not only their buyers but their sellers and the world that we all live in.  These three things have founded their positive gain, and will continue to be a driving force in their future.

EVRYTHNG and epb Global Partner to Help World Leading Brands Deliver on New Consumer Expectations for
Transparency, Authenticity and Personalized Experiences

“As the world emerges from the pandemic, it’s clear the full value chain must be taken into consideration — from manufacturing to retail to reCommerce,” said Michael Gamper, CEO, epb Global. “We’ve partnered with EVRYTHNG to help clients achieve this critical end-to-end supply chain visibility.”

EVRYTHNG, the Product Cloud managing digital identities for the world’s consumer products, today announced it has partnered with value chain innovator and management consulting firm, epb Global, to help brands increase supply chain resiliency and deliver on consumer expectations for transparency, authenticity and personalized experiences.

“As the world emerges from a year-long pandemic, it’s become clear the full value chain has to be taken into consideration — from sourcing and manufacturing to eCommerce and retail, to recycling and reCommerce,” said Michael Gamper, CEO, epb Global. “We’ve partnered with EVRYTHNG to help our clients achieve this critical end-to-end supply chain visibility.”

The past year witnessed a massive acceleration in eCommerce with many retailers not reopening their brick and mortar stores. According to Digital Commerce 360, worldwide consumer spending online jumped to $4.29 trillion in 2020, up over 24% from 2019. At the same time, manufacturers shifted to local sourcing and near-shore production for better resilience, while consumer purchasing values shifted.

“Getting the right mix of products in the correct channel at the right time requires a high degree of consumer insight, flexible and responsive distribution options, and perhaps, rethinking the entire sourcing and production network. EVRYTHNG provides this insight at scale,” said Gamper.

Beyond growth in the eCommerce channel, COVID-19 brought the need for and/or lack of supply chain visibility to the forefront. Never has there been a greater need for end-to-end traceability of individual product items through the supply chain. Product digitization, giving every product item a digital identity in the EVRYTHNG Product Cloud provides both brands and consumers with transparency from the factory to retail to resale or reuse. Consumers receive the provenance data they demand and brands receive real-time data intelligence to inform business practices.

“Technology is playing an instrumental role as brands react to a radically changed world where smarter supply chains and the ability to directly connect with consumers across multiple channels are defining who survives and who doesn’t,” said Niall Murphy, CEO, and co-founder, EVRYTHNG.

“Our partnership with epb Global allows us to extend our reach across the consumer goods market, bringing expertise in managing digital supply chain transformation to deliver end-to-end supply chain transparency into every consumer brand product’s journey from the factory to the consumer to recycle, reuse or reCommerce.”

Karambit Knife Company Assumes New Owners

Published

on

The karambit is the best tactical and everyday knife to carry and own.

Karambit.com – the world’s leading e-commerce site for karambit tactical knives and weapons – announced new ownership and leadership today. Longtime customer and former Navy SEAL, Phillip W. Koontz and business partner William Simkins have assumed the roles of owners and co-operators as of May, 2021. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“As a military guy and regular karambit customer who has used our products both on and off the battlefield, we could think of no better person to turn the keys over to than Phillip,” says Dennis Christo, founder of Karambit.com. “We are confident in Phillip’s passion for the product and Will’s financial acumen to carry the Karambit.com legacy into the future.”

Monument, Colorado-based Koontz spent six years as a Navy SEAL before he was honorably discharged in 2009. He has since spent his time as a motivational speaker for business, academic, athletic, and religious-based audiences. He incorporates the karambit knife into many public speaking presentations.

Will Simkins of Ashburn, Virginia has a long family legacy with the military, but opted to spend his career as a serial entrepreneur, most recently with his own financial planning consultancy. Simkins serendipitously met Koontz during one of his motivational speaking engagements, and the two quickly became friends, then business partners.

“The karambit is the best tactical and everyday knife to carry and own,” says Koontz. “So, when I had the opportunity to continue the strong legacy of Karambit.com and passionately educate and inform the public of its unique abilities, I jumped at the opportunity. Bringing Will into the mix added a financial acumen that helped to ensure our sustained growth,” he added.

Karambit.com sources its knives from some of the most respected knife and EDC (Every Day Carry) manufacturers in the world, including Italy-based Fox Knives. While the new owners plan to grow the company and even add a future training element, they have been working to ensure a seamless transition. Customers will see no difference in the superior product quality or speed of delivery.

Karambit.com sells thousands of knives a year with excellent customer reviews and over 80 brands and styles from which to choose. The company is committed to providing the best product for its desired purpose coupled with unmatched customer service to its customers.

###

Veteran owned and operated, Karambit.com was founded in 2013 in Los Angeles. Since then, it has quickly become the largest supplier of high quality, custom karambit knives in the world. Born out of the necessity for a truly superior self-defense weapon, the Karamit.com knives are sourced from the highest quality manufacturers in the world and are used for safety, precision, and efficiency. Karamit.com carries a VOSB certification and employs a passionate team of dedicated full-time and contracted employees located throughout the U.S. For more information, visit us online or contact us.
