Communities and social networks are usually associated with loss-making activities
London, UK (PRWEB) December 8, 2008
Webjam, (http://www.webjam.com) who provides branded social networking solutions, today announces the launch of their Premium Services for communities. These services allow end users to monetise their site with advertising, whilst brands, organisations and companies are now able
to add recurring subscription services to their branded environment by up-selling this service.
Subscription to Premium Services allows users to replace the Webjam branding on their website with their own, control advertising within their own network, create a branded registration process for new members and use their own URL, with access to all the standard Webjam tools including advanced co-editing and privacy features.
"Communities and social networks are usually associated with loss-making activities" comments Lexie Mendelson, Webjam's business development director. "Brands and organisations are now able to monetise social media by allowing their audience and members to build premium communities."
Webjam's introductory Premium Service offer is a bundled package for £12.95 per month or £99 per year which can be purchased in sterling, US dollars or euros through PayPal.
Premium subscribers also benefit from greater storage space and increased member numbers:
- Up to 1,000 members per webjam
- Up to 5,000 email newsletters per webjam
- 20GB of storage space per webjam
The basic Webjam offering remains free and will continue to allow users to set up versatile communities, featuring forums, blogs, polls, photos, maps, videos, activity feeds, rich media and more.
"Webjam is dedicated to empowering communities with a purpose. The community leaders of clubs, charities, professional groups and small businesses have long lacked a simple, affordable solution to create bespoke websites and social networks," comments Yann Motte, Webjam CEO. "We're excited to be releasing an extremely competitive solution for this need."
Webjam's Premium Services are suitable for individual end users, community leaders and the heads of small businesses, whilst the member sites created can range from the professional, personal, topical, or simple fan sites, clubs and societies. More information about Webjam's Premium Services can be found at http://www.webjam.com/premium/home.
Webjam Premium and Branded Services are also available for resellers to add to their own portfolio of products and services.
