I built a social networking company, CrowdVine, that lets anyone create a social network in a matter of minutes. We`re getting ready to launch a secondary product built on top of it, Social Networks for Conferences.http://www.crowdvine.com/conferences/
When you add a social network to a conference you add an incredible opportunity for the attendees to build professional relationships and networks at your event. We`ve tested the software at ten conferences so far, and the response has been consistently great.
Now we want to turn it into a product with a clear story. Unfortunately marketing isn`t our strong point (we`re two people with software engineering backgrounds). Design is a bit of a challenge also. We had a professional designer for our last product, but I did this one myself.
My questions for the SUN community are:
Does it appeal visually?
Does the product make sense? Do you understand what to do if you want to add a network to your conference?
For the site http://www.crowdvine.com/conferences/, the expert Professor loves the site service and gives his signature of three smiles out of four smiles for having testimonials and a trendy cult following and two smiles for positioning and differentiating. Two smiles for tapping into your target market. And three smiles for showing lively conference pictures, benefits, testimonials, guaranteed availability, notoriety, capabilities, target market, results, research practices, professionals targeted, reliability, dependability, professionalism, simplicity, expertise, specializing, value, and training support, etc. One smile not given because your company doesn’t look advanced and mainstream, neither PR driven or loud in terms of drawing publicity attention, nor real purpose.
http://www.crowdvine.com/conferences/ gets an all around three smiles out of four, because of not being publicity driven to spread mainstream where you can grow on audiences and become more advanced. In the mean time you’re to ma and pa but as an expert I’ll show you how your competitors went main stream, so you won’t lack the resources to advance and keep up with the competition before they find out about your success and shut you down.
