“We’re especially thrilled to start working with marketing partners to help them achieve their goals too.”

by Likewise CEO Ian Morris

Likewise, the Bill Gates-backed personalized entertainment discovery platform, with 6 million+ registered users and the leading platform for consumers to discover, collect, and share their favorite TV shows, Movies, Books and Podcasts, reveals growth in several key areas:

Surpasses 2.5 Million Email Newsletter Subscriptions – this makes Likewise the largest daily newsletter in the entertainment category exceeding newsletter scale from such established brands as The New York Times ‘Watching’, Vulture, Variety, Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide. Email is a key point of entry into the Likewise ecosystem which includes its mobile app, websites and connected TV applications.

Re-Branding of Daily Newsletters – alongside this explosive user growth, Likewise announces new brands for its flagship newsletter products:

  • WATCHLIST – f.k.a. ‘What to Watch,’ for personalized Movies and TV shows.
  • BOOKLIST – f.k.a. ‘What to Read,’ for Books and Audiobook recommendations.
  • PODLIST – f.k.a. ‘What to Podcast,’ to help discover new Podcasts.
  • With the average consumer spending 23 minutes per day trying to find new content, these brands articulate the core value promise of Likewise – to help make user’s lives better by connecting them with the content they’ll love.

Launches Marketer Partnerships – in beta trials in Q4 ’22 and Q1 ’23, Likewise is now working on behalf of advertising partners to reach and engage its users. To date Likewise has worked with more than 50 test partners across 20 different categories including book publishing, consumer products, e-commerce, financial services, health & beauty, pet care, podcasts, streaming services, and others.

Expands its AI – Likewise has also launched version one of its AI powered recommendation engine; this enables Likewise to send individualized recommendations across its suite of apps as well as delivered directly to users’ inboxes, thereby driving greater engagement, across its millions of users every day to help them better navigate their content decisions.

“'In an era where scale, AI, and innovative consumer technology are more important than ever, Likewise is excited about our rapidly-growing presence in entertainment discovery and we have ambitious plans to aggressively grow our subscription base and platform in the months ahead,' said Likewise CEO Ian Morris."
