Votivation, the online democratic social network, announces the relaunch today of its unique direct democracy, opinion-blogging and survey marketing service. By enabling anyone to vote for or against the opinions and policies of high profile opinion-leaders, celebrities and politicians, as well as those of other registered community members, Votivation addresses the significant, growing dissatisfaction with existing political structures, mixing and ranking opinion and personal popularity on a purely democratic basis.
Through creative use of mobile, online content and survey marketing business models, Votivation enables members to make regular, small but growing cash donations to their favourite charity, non-profit, advocacy or political organisations.
Votivation (http://www.Votivation.com), an evolution in democracy, today relaunches its latest upgrade Version 5.0 (US patent-pending) service. In a unique peer-to-peer environment and with over £20,000 of regular cash and other prizes awarded to date, Votivation’s free online community polling service allows:
- agencies, councils, companies, schools, associations, clubs, charities, celebrities, web site owners, politicians and political parties to:
· test and research the opinions, attitudes, behavioural and brand patterns of users, members, citizens, supporters, fans, customers, clients, etc.;
· reach and recruit supporters;
· build online and offline PR; and
· generate potentially significant revenues.
- journalists, columnists, editors, TV/radio/newspaper/magazine-owners, mobile phone networks, web site owners and other media operators to:
· test and research the opinions, attitudes, behavioural and brand patterns of audiences, users, customers, etc.;
· enable users to generate FREE, tailored, dynamic, repeat-usage community content to complement existing themes and formats
· increase average revenues and time commitment per user
· leverage community and charity support efforts
· harvest free sustainable market research, PR and customer feedback.
Uniquely Votivation extends its democratic, “mutual” business model to all participants, sharing with community members up to 45% of its net revenues and offering long term part-ownership of the company.
David Hunter, Chairman of Votivation, said: “People are not apathetic about their priority issues, but many do feel increasingly disconnected from existing decision-making. Votivation satisfies this latent demand for a strong democratic voice, delivering fun, competition, free market research and sustainable commitment for individuals and their preferred causes. Effectively we provide an ongoing “Live 8” supporter interaction and fund raising model for any charity or non-profit, as well as strong corporate value for commercial media and other entities. Votivation also offers a more stable, transparent, accountable and fundamentally democratic solution to the funding problems facing political parties and highlighted recently.”
“We need to download power – that is what voters want”

“They’re using it for snacking, for short bursts, for self-generated entertainment. They are not going to watch the football highlights (on a mobile phone) for evermore. You have to constantly refresh." Bob Fuller, Chief Executive, 3
