AboutA Peer-to-Peer Influencer Community and Marketplace Enabling Purchases Within Content. The Land bridges the gap between a website and social media
E-commerce Market Size: $4.88 Trillion projected global E-Commerce revenue (2021)
Projected Social Commerce Revenue: $166 Billion
For consumers: viewing content on social media is a shallow and passive experience, and there are too many steps between the product discovery and the purchase.
For Brands: Brands utilize social media to drive traffic to their websites for purchasing.
The Billion Dollar Gap: This has created a huge gap in social commerce. Currently, there is no way to effectively bridge the gap between social media and a website.
We grant space (LANDs) in our digital network to influencers, brands and content creators to encourage collaboration and monetization.
Each LAND is a marketplace and a content repository for its owner. Influencers can tag any products in content regardless of endorsements.
Fans have a deeper engagement and can purchase without ever leaving the content.
We take a sales commission on products sold and profit share with the influencer.
We also project a profit share model on advertising revenues.

Dr. Bob Deutsch is a cognitive neuroscientist (Phd., Albert Einstein College of Medicine), a cultural anthropologist (Ph.D., Rutgers University), and founder of the consulting practice, Brain-Sells.(www.brain-sells.com). Bob has worked in primitive tribal societies, in the strategy rooms along Pennsylvania Avenue and in the war rooms on Madison Ave. His focus has been on understanding how real people, living real lives, on-the-ground, real-time, experience their everyday life, and how they use that self-narrative to propel their attachments to products, personas and ideas. Bob’s work has been applied to business, education, politics, entertainment and technology. At the beginning of his career, Bob worked at Jane Goodall’s Gombe Stream Chimpanzee Reserve, studying alpha males and dominant females. He then went on to study the behavior and decision-making styles of “big bosses” in commercial C-suites, in the Pentagon and in children’s playground groups, seeking to understand the dynamics of leadership and fellowship. Under the auspices of Nobel Laureate Konrad Lorenz and Germany’s Max Planck Institute, Bob lived in two primitive tribes to study how leading ideas take hold in a culture (1975- 80). Subsequently, he applied that work as a State Department diplomat, specializing in international negotiations (1980-92). Afterwards, he set up his consulting practice, Brain-Sells (1992-present) to bring his knowledge on human nature and the nature of mind to the world of communication strategy for advertising agencies, PR firms, corporations, entertainment companies, public policy organizations and law firms. Bob’s knowledge is so deep and therefore so universally applicable that he has successfully consulted in many different domains, from packaged goods to climate change to luxury to counter-terrorism.

He is presently writing his second book, Thinking Artfully, and applying insights gained from his many interviews with artists and creatives, to provide important lessons for business success.
