The Umojami Tale
In 2015, Mitch grappled with a predicament: the search for a platform where he could promptly share and promote his creative content, untethered from the dependency on views, comments, or clicks from mainstream platforms like Youtube and TikTok to secure a modest income. Dissatisfied with this status quo, he conceived an idea for a website that would enable his supporters to directly compensate him for the value he provided. Rallying a group of like-minded friends and content creators, they transformed this concept into a fully operational service within an astonishingly brief timeframe.
Months later, Umojami emerged as the solution empowering content creators, especially those hailing from less developed regions like Africa and Asia, to receive direct compensation not only from their fans but also from visitors engaging with their creative endeavors. Despite grappling with challenges in developing systems for managing direct payments to creators' accounts in these regions, Umojami proactively took steps to offer a payment solution supportive of most less developed countries.
Umojami champions membership-based businesses for creators by equipping them with essential tools to attract, manage, and engage their paying supporters. Utilizing a subscription-based payment model, enthusiasts contribute a monthly sum of their choice to their preferred creators, receiving exclusive perks, additional content, or an intimate insight into their creative process in return.
This approach proves mutually beneficial: creators retain artistic independence while receiving due compensation, and fans derive satisfaction from directly supporting the creation of content they hold dear.
