Legacy Republic Launches to Create Micro-Entrepreneurs With Mission to Save America’s 2 Billion Video and Photo Album Memories
New market taps into America’s entrepreneurial spirit, allows anyone to build a business while helping families preserve their past
Today Legacy Republic is launching to create the first mission-driven marketplace that connects communities through the preservation of their memories. In an effort to save over two billion home videos and photo albums from degradation, destruction and loss, Legacy Republic will provide all the tools and training for candidates looking to supplement their income with flexible work hours. With $6 million in funding and additional operational support from YesVideo , Inc., Legacy Republic is dedicated to building a business community around the value of preserving family histories.
According to Legacy Republic , about 90 million families across the country have collectively stored an estimated two billion non-digital video units and photo albums in their homes. These family memories, often poorly stored in attics and garages, are at risk of loss to fire or natural disasters and degrading in quality every day. By empowering a team of ‘Legacy Maker’ consultants across the country, the first and only career opportunity that allows people to earn a living by preserving America’s family legacies, Legacy Republic aims to educate Americans about the importance of media digitization while enabling them to make a profit in the process.
“The potential for our Legacy Makers is boundless,” said head of Legacy Republic , Brian Knapp. “The program is built to suit each individual’s needs, so that people with a passion for family heritage and history can work as little or as many hours they choose in order to fulfill their personal goals. It’s an often overlooked and underserved market, and we want anyone to have the opportunity to benefit from its value.”
Upon completion of careful training, Legacy Makers host parties where they tell guests about the importance of transferring outdated media like videotapes, film reels, and photo albums. Additionally, Legacy Makers are equipped with state-of-the-art iPad apps to transact with their clients on-the-go and demonstrate the power of preserving and re-living newly digitized family memories anywhere, and any time. By creating these positions, Legacy Republic is forging an entirely new job opportunity for Americans looking to supplement their income or balance part-time jobs.
Unlike similarly modeled companies, Legacy Republic is the only mission-driven marketplace with a product that lasts ’forever.’ “While driving a car, and delivering groceries are also a great way to earn income, they are often not practical for most people who need total flexibility. That’s not the case with Legacy Republic - our ‘product’ is memories, and the relationships that the Legacy Maker creates with their customers are long lasting,” added Knapp.
Legacy Republic will run as a separate business unit, but leverage the core digitization technology and nearly 80,000 square feet of operations on both coasts in the U.S. of its parent company and financier, YesVideo, Inc. For over a decade, over 8 million customers have already trusted YesVideo to transfer vintage media formats and preserve their favorite family memories in the cloud.
