We provide an event marketing and RSVP service for events. Many of our clients pay to use our service. We also make money when people register for their events. We would like to provide our services for free to other promoters that are willing to help us promote these events. Our clients will also pay you to help promote their events.
Some of the events our clients use our service for:
Pulse Magazine's PulseFest:
All Irish Times Events including Calendar Girl Search:
60ne7's Matrix Friday
Boston Billiard Club Events
...and a lot more including fitness center sporting events, coffee shop events, etc, etc.
We are growing at a rapid rate. We need help with marketing events. We are willing to give you the next generation of event marketing tools for your events, as well as access to our network of promoters for free - if you will help us.
Call me or email me if interested. Preferably, apply here.
I’ve read a couple of posts tonight from people (here and here) who are dumping Bloglines as their RSS reader and moving to upstarts like Rojo and Findory. Going to check them out myself. I just moved from Newsgator to Bloglines a week ago! But using the hippest RSS reader is a little like being seen in the right restaurants (well if you live in Sydney, anyway).
5) The personalization seems to work. After reading a variety of
articles from my favorite blogs, Findory consistently churned up
related articles from blogs I didn’t read - articles that weren’t linked to
in the posts I’d read. Not every recommended article grabbed me, but
enough of them did to make the service obviously useful. Over the past
few days I’ve read informative posts from emergic.org, Paul Allen, and Download Squad (among others) that I wouldn’t have found otherwise, and found one blog, Technovia, that I liked enough to subscribe to. The hardest part of the service Findory’s got right.
I saw my subscriptions increase a bit the last week or so, and it looks
like the culprit is Rojo (along with some prominant referral links from
a few of the big guys) which didn't appear in my reports at all.
I'd love to see Findory's personalization capabilities available in rojo.
BIG BIG news in the consumer research space today:
BuzzMetrics, a market leader in online
word-of-mouth research, and Trendum, an innovator in Internet search
and linguistic analysis technologies, today announced that Trendum has
acquired BuzzMetrics to create the global standard to measure and
analyze consumer buzz.
The company will do business as BuzzMetrics and have the strategic
backing of VNU, owner of such renowned research brands as ACNielsen and
Nielsen Media Research. VNU is a minority shareholder in the new
company. The new BuzzMetrics will build on Trendum’s advanced
technology, while leveraging VNU’s global sales, marketing and research
The big thing that stands out - to me - is this tidbit:
The new company’s growing client roster today includes more than 75
Fortune 1000 corporations and esteemed brands across virtually every
industry, as well as partnerships with numerous agencies in
advertising, marketing, media and research.
What this means: Consumer research is getting automated.
Innovate. Test. Launch. Gather Feedback. Do it Again.
This process is not just for internet companies. But, for all companies.
Even big ones. Especially, big ones.
So, now that they are listening. When, will they actually join the conversation?
Wow, what an exciting time. Braxton and I have been through an
incredible amount in the past six years with this company. All sorts of
dot com ups and downs. And then a long period of post-dot com
struggles. Nine office moves in our first three years of business (!).
Running the business on credit cards for way too long. And then a
steady stream of successes as we were able to grow an amazing,
world-class team. It has been an incredible process, and we are
thrilled that this is where things have ended up.
The fun is just starting though. We have been able to convince the
world that buzz is important AND measurable. Now we have to work even
harder to establish BuzzMetrics as the buzz metrics on which the
marketing world runs.
A new Intelliseek study
signals dark days ahead for traditional advertising and public
relations. Using a data set collected from a representative consumer
survey, the study shows that consumer purchasing decisions are 50
percent more likely to be influenced by word-of-mouth endorsement than
television and radio advertising. This data also reveals that
peer-driven product endorsement trumps brand information carried by
traditional news sources and "expert commentary" when it comes to trust
and purchasing behavior (read full Intelliseek press release).
I like to see stats like that. Why? I said this an email to a prospective client yesterday:
Although some event planners have cobbled pieces of what we’ve done together
using other ASPs or their own home grown stuff, no one has built what we have
built. And noone can encourage, track and reward word of mouth and online
advertising [for events] like we can online.
"Entrepreneur in residence is one of those terms of ours that covers
all sorts of things," said Dan Rosen, a venture capitalist with
Seattle's Frazier Technology Ventures. "In some cases, it is a holding
place for somebody who you want to have in one of your portfolio
companies. ... In other cases, it is somebody who helps define your
strategy. ... And in other cases it really is somebody who has some
specific skills that can help your companies in a lot of ways and does
short stints with those companies."
That's a cool concept. Never heard about that before.
