Phonio Connects Celebrities With Fans In A More Genuine Way
Phonio is bringing back the value of a phone call. Launched last month, Phonio allows for exclusive audio content from influencers via a mobile phone call. As a society that craves access to all things exclusive, Phonio could deliver just that, while bringing new life to the phone call, albeit, one-way.
So how exactly does work? The celebrities involved can span from musicians, athletes, brands, and more. Those involved with the project will post their unique Phonio numbers on social media. All you have to do is call that number, listen to the recorded message, and proceed through the menu accordingly. You should receive your first call within a day or two. There’s no need to download an app – it’s all based on phone calls. Because of this, standard data and message rates may apply. The content of the calls is ultimately up to the celebrity, and calls can come in at any time, day or night. There is also no limit to how many Phonio users you subscribe to, just be sure to save their Phonio numbers so you can identify who is calling you.
The first influencers involved were Lil Wayne and friends from Young Money Entertainment, the Sacramento Kings basketball team, non-profit NextGen Climate, musician and actor Drake Bell, and musician Chris Daughtry. In fact, one of Daughtry’s first calls featured him singing a raw “Take Me to Church” cover, originally by Hozier.
The possibilities of what these calls contain are endless. As a relatively free service, it seems worth checking out. Would you sign up?
