TREBEL IS FOR THE OTHER 2 BILLION SMARTPHONE USERS
We know there are other free music options for those who don’t or can’t pay for music. Trebel is unique. Choose your own songs. Don’t bother with intrusive, buzz-kill ads. Play everywhere – offline.
Disruptive ads, inability to choose specific songs.
No albums, not offline, and not audio-first.
The Pirate Bay
Gives users more viruses and malware than music.
Even though the world is in its second decade of internet music, we think the model is still broken. Fans who want song choice are stuck between navigating the world of virus infested rip sites and free music video apps that drain batteries and costly data plans. Trebel fixes all of these problems. Our users download and listen to the music they want. No viruses, no ads during plays, no cost, no headaches.
HOW WE MAKE MONEY
We make money like social media companies make money. As users search, preview, download, and playlist music, they watch unobtrusive personalized ads. These ads generate revenue, allowing our content to remain free while still paying labels and artists for their work.
Our user acquisition cost is among the lowest in app history, registering below 50 cents, and heading lower as networking effects take hold. With a lifetime value of an active user estimated at $25 - $30, Trebel has significant profit potential.
Our monetization works similarly to social media mobile apps, as it comes from app engagement, not downloads. The longer someone is engaged in our product, the more revenue we generate from advertisements. So as more songs appear on the app, the higher our engagement rises, which in turn increases our revenues.
THE UNTAPPED GLOBAL MARKET
In the next few years, the number of users choosing to listen to their music on paid subscription services is expected to reach between 150 and 200 million people. That’s a big number. But it’s not nearly as big as the 2.5 billion people who own cell phones and don't pay for subscription or download services. After cementing our brand in the U.S. and Mexico, we have plans to capitalize on that untapped market by expanding to Latin America and Southeast Asia.

LET'S CHANGE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TOGETHER
Our team has been building successful companies for more than 20 years, all of which created a lot of business value and investor value. With Trebel, we aim to do the same, but the potential scale and impact of Trebel is different.
I am passionate about Trebel because with 2.5 billion smartphone owners – a giant market - searching for free, offline music, Trebel has the potential to solve a huge problem for:
--Music fans, who can now use a cool app for free music by eliminating the need to rip music or use "safe harbor" services.
--Labels and artists, who can monetize their premium content at rates currently enjoyed by social media apps like Instagram and SnapChat.
--Advertisers searching for high quality, brand safe apps to reach millennials and Generation Z youth.
In the next five years, I see a world where billions of young music fans have abandoned virus infested rip sites and “safe harbor” apps in favor of Trebel. The biggest brands and millions of small businesses are using Trebel to reach their customers, and in the process, generating fair compensation for artists and labels and creating one of the most valuable media companies in the world.
Trebel is a rare opportunity to do “good” and “well” at the same time. Join us by using Trebel and becoming a part of our mission.
