Over a Decade of Experience
Creating the best user experience and added value in the technology-based businesses
Indeed the story we are going to tell you has nothing in common with legends and fairytales, but the very opening! The thing is, we never believed in fiction and its razzmatazz, nor were we in a desperate quest of the genie in the bottle to make our dreams come true! Rather, with our feet on the ground, as recent as 15 years ago, the three of us, young and ambitious, embarked on our journey. Our source of inspiration; a cozy balcony we were sitting in! That’s how we started to dream big.
As recent as two decades ago, providing easy access to home Internet was an unprecedented step in the realm of technology. But as its infrastructure expanded, multi-user Internet services began to gain momentum and this improvement gave us every reason to pursue our objectives in an indefatigable manner.
They say “A thousand mile journey begins with the first step.” While the saying sounds tempting, we know that very first step is not necessarily a successful move. So was the case with Persian K2, an online research and survey website. Despite our considerable efforts, Persian K2 turned out to be a failure. We didn’t budge an inch though and took our next step with even more determination,which reminds me of another saying: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
Cloob, one of the first Internet channels to familiarize Iranian users with social networking, was our next product. It enabled users to create their personal profile and share their views on numerous topics with others. Cloob used to be a multiple-user Internet service.
Later along the road as our team expanded, we needed to think of a rich source of income. As a result, we doubled our efforts and launched Sabavision; an online advertising Internet service. Sabavision has been successfully serving as a pioneer in online advertisement for over a decade.
As a long-term objective, we had visualized a thorough collection of Internet services. Hence, Mihanblog emerged in the realm of blogging and ranked second in blogging services across the country. Copper market ,an online supermarket, was our next project. Although it provided customers’ needs at their disposal, it eventually ceased to function due to a couple of factors such as people’s unfamiliarity with online shopping as well as an awfully low profit margin.
The year 2009 was in fact one of the toughest years in our business because of content control implementation on Youtube.This deprived us the right of using Youtube as our main source of video sharing.The need for increasing upload capacity had become our growing concern.Nevertheless, all our negotiations resulted in this very sentence: We are not interested in working with Cloob.
