Don Ressler Proves that There is Life After MySpace

Posted by Wiscy on November 25, 2016 with 1 Comment

Many teenagers that are using social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram may have never even heard of MySpace. This was the real pioneer for social media, but there is a chance that many young people today are completely unaware of the existence of this company. It was a major shift in the way that people were able to communicate. Don Ressler was a part of this early start to social media.

When MySpace was purchased for around $500 million there were some fans that initially thought that something new and exciting would be done to improve the website. The MySpace concept would eventually be overshadowed by Facebook. People like Don Ressler, along with his business partner Adam Goldenberg, would move along. He would become the type of person that would move into a totally new area of online retail. Ressler would start Intelligent Beauty, and this would present consumers with the ability to buy both healthcare products and clothing. Many customers that shop JustFab may not have never heard of Intelligent Beauty, but this is actually the parent company to JustFab. Intelligent Beauty is what began it all for Ressler. This company would grow quickly and move to produce as much as $500 million in revenues. As time progressed there would be even more opportunities for people to see how Don Ressler survived after MySpace.

One thing that he realized is that there was more that could be done even outside of his realm of social media. JustFab on Wikipedia.org, for example, has become so big that it is valued at a billion dollars.  This is one of those websites that has ton of clothing options for women that want to work out. This is another online clothing concept of Don Ressler that is linked to subscription services just like JustFab. That is the amazing thing about these companies. They have become popular over the years because there has been so much talk about the concept of subscription services. This gives people that chance to get new clothes delivered to their homes without wasting time shopping each month. This is the unique idea that Don Ressler has brought forth to save people time.

Latino musicians are among the best musicians in the music world. Artists such as Shakira, Estefan and Santana are legends in the mainstream as well as the Latino music community. Their breakthrough came as a result of dedication, determination, and hard work. Not all Latino artists have an impact in the mainstream music scene. Some of them are only famous in Latin America. A good example is the legendary Juan Gabriel. His work was widely celebrated in the Latino music industry but was isolated in the United States.

Her second single titled “Miracle” followed shortly. This track was a game changer. It gave Ms. Martinez the fame she is currently enjoying. “Miracle” was a massive hit in the United States as well as in several Latin American nations. It was crafted by Emilio Estefan and other key personalities in the Latino music industry. Some of these individuals include Luigi Giraldo, Archie Peña, and Gaitan Brothers. Her latest track is “Tomorrowland.” It was produced by FitoBlanko. This dance song has also proven to be a hit.
