Financially speaking, GIFs are all about making money, and that’s exactly what the folks at Flixable do, at least for now.
The company, which is currently seeking investors, is trying to create a social-media-savvy, customizable GIF animation engine that would be available for free on iOS and Android devices.
It’s a big leap forward for a company that has already made a name for itself for its original GIFs, which are all designed to make you laugh and feel inspired by a simple idea.
Flixable CEO Adam Miller said in an interview with TechCrunch that Flixables animation engine was initially designed to be used for social media, but now he hopes to expand its use beyond that.
“We think we can make some really awesome social GIFs that people love,” he said.
“And, in doing so, we’ll make some great money.”
Miller said that Flaxables new animated GIF engine is aimed at creating “unique social content” that would “have a really powerful impact.”
It’s not a new idea, and Flixibles creators have already made some great GIFs with it.
The GIFs featured in our roundup were made by the company’s Flixability Studio.
We asked Flixible to tell us how it plans to make money with this new animated engine.
The company said that it’s currently looking for investors and is seeking an initial investment of $5 million.
We’ll keep you updated on the company as more details become available.
