We are better than movie theatres and pirated DVDs because we are convenient, cheaper, and better quality. You pay a subscription fee on a monthly basis, and then watch movies. You can also use the website to connect with you friends and family using social media. You can also review, rate, and suggest movies as well as talk to other members on our blog and through our chat forum. Our team is made of myself Stacy Joe I have a Bachelor degree in telecom engineering from ABC University, our CEO Jane Doe who has an MBA XYZ University Our CTO who has a degree in I.T. from the GHI University, and our Marketing Manager who has a Bachelor marketing from ABC. We are currently in County Q, and we hope to be the number one website for viewing movies in Q and the region in the future. We know we have a big market out there and we will do whatever it takes to capture it and grow it. I would like to meet you at your earliest convenience to discuss more, here is my card. Call me… Wink ;)
  • 45. Hi, I'm Stacy Joe, the VP of business development at XYZ.com We are an Online Portal that allows you to watch your favorite movies and TV series on a paid subscription scheme. Essentially, we are the NETFLEX of the MENA region. If you want to watch new movie releases you either go to the movies which are expensive, with fixed time slots, and can be uncomfortable sometimes. Your other cheaper and more convenient option is the pirated copies from TANGO DVD, but you save money at the expense of quality. This is where we come in, for 10USD s a month; you can watch theater quality releases from the comfort of your home, at your own convenient time. We have a fully dedicated team with exceptional blend of skill sets and back grounds enabling us to deliver on our goals and set new entertainment quality standards in the region. We currently have 450,000 subscribers or 26% of the potential market in COUNTRY Q alone. The potential for the region however is 29 MM viewers. We want to expand our offering to the remaining viewers in the Q market and the rest of the region over the next 3 years. Thank you for your time, we're very interested in talking to you about this exciting opportunity and we'd like to schedule a meeting with you to expand upon this conversation and discuss it in greater detail.
