Legacy Republic Launches Mobile App to Uberize and Gamify the Business of Memory Preservation

Social selling takes a modern turn as leading memory business unveils app to energize the sales experience with progress tracking, rewards, and real-time updates


SANTA CLARA, CA – June 24, 2015: Staying on track to save America’s two billion photo and video memories is no simple task, but it’s about to get a whole lot easier for those who have taken on the challenge. Today, Legacy Republic, the company responsible for turning the home media digitization industry into a personal business opportunity for micro-entrepreneurs, launched a new mobile app to incentivize its growing fleet of Legacy Makers. The Uber-inspired app enables Legacy Makers to track sales, manage shows, view team reports, and more, providing a seamless and engaging way to supercharge sales. 

The app also implements gamification techniques to motivate Legacy Makers to level up to manager and executive director status, a promotion achieved by demonstrating performance progress tracked each month. 

A growing trend popularized by the likes of Uber, Airbnb, and TaskRabbit, Legacy Republic aims to empower individuals with a passion for sharing memories and preserving personal history to supplement their income for every media digitization order completed. 

Since launching in October 2014, Legacy Republic has expanded to 35 states and increased their Legacy Maker headcount to more than 350. Legacy Makers, or certified mission-driven memory consultants, are trained to educate friends, family and people in their local communities about the importance of transferring video and photo album memories to the cloud that are at risk of loss and degradation. 

To help these memory missionaries better manage their businesses, Legacy Republic’s Legacy Maker app makes the social sales process more rewarding and manageable with just a few taps. The platform allows for total transparency into number of sales, details regarding upcoming and previous Legacy Shows, status of orders, and sales predictions for the coming weeks. The intuitive dashboard provides the ability to:

  • Manage Shows - pick a date, select a time, and update details like show locations for every Legacy Show booking. 
  • Team Reports – team leaders get insight into their teams’ progress with complete visibility into shows booked and orders completed.
  • Latest Earnings - see a breakdown of personal earnings based on orders completed and team progress.

“We wanted to modernize the social sales experience for our incredible team of Legacy Makers, and integrating the mobile factor was key,” said Michael Chang, CEO of Legacy Republic. “This new app will help foster a sense of community by motivating and inspiring Legacy Makers to run their business and meet their goals.”
