Endurance In the racing world, endurance racing is a sport that strives for perfect partnership between humans and machines. It is as much about testing the durability of the race car, the machine, as it is about the skill and stamina of the human team that drives it. These types of races, and the arduous preparation required to compete in them, are emblematic of the sheer power that comes from synthesizing machine processing and human thought. The significant barriers that can be broken when these components fit together are game changing. The engineers and drivers engage in a never ending feedback loop to improve the durability and speed of the machine. Success plays out transparently and in real time on the race track.

As the last weekly update of 2019, and to set the 2020 tone for Jerrick Media (OTCQB: JMDA) and its flagship product Vocal, I want to mention how thankful I am to my team and network for the successes we have shared this past year. I have consolidated and carefully curated my networking email list for the upcoming year. It consists of so many talented individuals I have met throughout my career. Some of you I have been updating since the launch of the Vocal platform in December 2016, others since before the inception of our public company in February of that year.

The company’s current revenue expectation of approximately $305,000-$315,000 for the fourth quarter 2019 is in line with previous public guidance. This is as compared to the $91,386 in revenues reported for the third quarter, over a 300% increase. $91,386 represented nearly a 100% increase over a combined $41,515 for the first 2 quarters of fiscal year 2019.

The success of the Vocal platform thus far is predicated on the notion that content as a commodity in the digital space has continually appreciating value. Or, more precisely, content has potentially ever-appreciating value when it exists on a platform that is powered by strong technology and armed with a strategic distribution methodology that not only disseminates and monetizes the content, but optimizes its platform for scale. That is exactly what we built in Vocal, a proprietary platform whose technology is self-evident and driven by data.

At its core, Vocal is a platform for creating, sharing and distributing content. It turned out that, while building a best in class, long form social platform, we found ourselves with a very powerful IR product to boot. The assembly, digital distribution and search engine optimization of corporate materials and messaging in a structured environment like Vocal is far superior to patched-together data platforms or paying for research on forgettable websites. Simply put, there is no one better to piece the puzzle of public information together and define the narrative of a company than a CEO and executive team, and no better medium to share it than Vocal. My partner Justin Maury and I use the Vocal platform for more in depth discussions about the digital space, as well as Vocal product updates and Jerrick’s uplisting process. Each week, we’ll be publishing this recap, which will amalgamate and contextualize the various updates from the previous week and is designed to maximize communication and transparency with our shareholder and creator communities alike.
A Microcap's Guide to Uplisting
Statistically, most microcap OTCQB companies fail. Only the great ones don’t and only the very best ones make it to a higher national exchange.
Reversing to move forward is part of Jerrick's journey from the OTCQB to the NASDAQ Capital Markets. From inception, Jerrick's goal has been to build a billion dollar company. In fact, that goal drove our decision to go public in the first place. While Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc. became a publicly traded company in February 2016, my particular journey to that point can be traced as far back as 1990.
