  7. 7. Partnerships • Publishing Companies. Currently I may have at least two big national publishers so far that I can easily connected with and discuss for parternership • Books Authors • Schools (daycares, kidgardens, primiray schools) • Libraries • Children educational institutions and organizations • Children Training agencies • Advertising companies • Language Translation Service Companies • Online children parents/education circles, groups, clubs,etc Wireless product manufactures and providers • Software and/or hardware/platform companies • Amazon – Most of us spend lots of $ on Amazon (Kindle books) every month. .Partnerships and distribution through Amazon channel would make wonders.
  8. 8. Risks Barriers to Entry • Other free websites for children books/animation etc .attract more customers easily and become our rivals making our marketing more difficult. International internet publishing law may enforce charges to our business Content Sensitivity • Inappropriate content can create user backlash We need to think more marketing Strategies to adapt the cases. .i.e we could offer certain ranges of free stuff.,; add more attactive stuffs (games,etc) to attract childrens to come to our sites, while making free stuffs, putting paying ads to the pages to get income supporting free service. Published content on our sites has to be censored and copy edited carefully to avoid unexpected criticism for contents.
  9. 9. Risks Regional Security, Privacy and DRM Laws • Security , privacy and digital rights distribution laws from different countries increases complexity to our business. Market Demand and Market Changes • As the user bases increased , our sites need to be robust enough to adapt the huge population. • As the market needs change (new devices and new device form factors), our solution will need to evolve appropriately Usage Sensibility • Continuously playing mobile or watching animation(wireless or continuous motion) is harmful to young kids's eyes and may cause reduction of kids' social activities。 We will pay specific attention to the security, privacy and DRM to avoid any regional breaches. Provide users with friendly messages if content cannot be displayed due to Our business, to certain degree, need to be adapt quickly enough to the market changes. Our solution will add certain control capabilities to allow parents and educators to control amount of time kids can spend on Love2Read apps within specific time period (e.g., day, week, etc.) .
