We’re proud of iConsumer, and … Continue reading Letter from the CEO – September 28, 2018

You are the “i” in iConsumer

By: Kim Logan | September 10, 2018

 Invested. Involved. Informed.   I was asked recently what the “i” in iConsumer stood for and at first I didn’t have a clue.  Coming from a previous site with an “i” in the name (iGive.com) and the prevalence of Apple branded “i” gadgets and services, it seemed natural to me that our site would be “iConsumer”.  But … Continue reading You are the “i” in iConsumer

Letter from the CEO – August 30, 2018

By: Robert Grosshandler | August 30, 2018

Our shareholders and customers (all 50,000+ of them so far) came for the experience of being an investor in an early stage startup.  We’re working hard to honor that.  To be as transparent as possible as we pioneer the journey for a crowdfunded startup through to something we hope becomes much, much bigger.  Becoming traded … Continue reading Letter from the CEO – August 30, 2018

An open letter to early investors

By: Robert Grosshandler | August 08, 2018

I have two asks of you.  This is an open letter, because the asks, while directed at early investors, involve the buying and selling of iConsumer stock.  It’s important that everybody gets equal notice of what we’re suggesting people do to make it possible for ordinary people to get a slice of the American Dream. … Continue reading An open letter to early investors

Value versus stock price

By: Robert Grosshandler | July 26, 2018

We often talk about increasing the value of iConsumer.  We often go on to say we hope that an increase in value increases the price of our stock.  But, we can’t promise that, we can only hope. For instance, today we’ve got a promotion starting where, if a member trials the iConsumer Button, we’re going … Continue reading Value versus stock price

Letter from a user

By: Robert Grosshandler | July 13, 2018

Here’s another letter that came into our support desk where I think the response will be helpful to us all: James D writes – I am a new iConsumer user and I would like to purchase stock in the company however: the difference in the Bid and Ask price in the open market is Outrageous, … Continue reading Letter from a user

Amazon Prime Day and our Stock Price

By: Robert Grosshandler | July 05, 2018

Amazon Prime Day Amazon has very special sales happening July 16.  You can shop at Amazon via iConsumer.  We make great money when you do (in part because Amazon doesn’t allow us to share what they pay us with you). For many companies, the bigger their revenues and profits are, and the faster those are … Continue reading Amazon Prime Day and our Stock Price

Stock Price Volatility – Buying and Selling RWRDP

By: Robert Grosshandler | June 20, 2018

The fun has begun.  Our stock price has begun to swing pretty dramatically, even in the course of a day or two.  It’s being volatile.  The big price swings happen because there are still very few sellers and buyers. If you’re going to buy or sell RWRDP, please make sure you understand your options and … Continue reading Stock Price Volatility – Buying and Selling RWRDP

Letter from the CEO – June 19, 2018

By: Robert Grosshandler | June 19, 2018

What a month it’s been! First and foremost, the SEC qualified our offering on June 13, 2018.  Which means we’re able to award our stock again.  So go shop.  I firmly believe that the best way to increase iConsumer’s value is through increasing revenues and profitability. Next, consider investing in iConsumer.  You get the experience … Continue reading Letter from the CEO – June 19, 2018
