Warsaw, Poland (PRWEB) January 16, 2012
Thomas Buck, an Internet entrepreneur and web developer, is pleased to announce the launch of Interactwive, an innovative way to market, expand and engage with clients using Twitter competitions. Running Twitter competitions isn't new, but a service that allows brand managers to run an effective competition with minimal effort and maximum gain is.
The social, almost viral, nature of Twitter makes competitions a vibrant, fast and engaging method to spread the message across to thousands of people. By offering prizes and then asking Twitter users to tweet links or hashtags as a way to enter the competition, means that the news of the competition, and then indirectly the brand, product or message, spreads quickly through the Twittersphere.
With Interactwive running such competitions are easy: create the competition, link it to a Twitter account, set the URL, word, or hashtag that users need to mention to enter. Then set the duration and the competition is ready. Once the competition has run its course, Interactwive allows users to fairly choose a winner (or winners) and takes all the hard work out of collecting the tweets and checking for duplicates.
“I tried running a Twitter contest by hand, but I soon found it was not an easy task. Not all tweets are returned by Twitter search making running a fair competition difficult. Plus the time needed to collate the tweets and check for duplicates was prohibitive,” said Thomas Buck. “So I built Interactwive. Now running competitions is simple, fair and time efficient. But most importantly it offers a brilliant way to engage Twitter users and spread your message.”
Thomas is so confident of the power of Interactwive that he has designed the system to run all contests that last for two hours or less for free. Once marketers, self publishers, online brand managers and social networking experts see the effectiveness of Interactwive, Thomas is sure they will come back for more. Sign up is free and it only takes a few seconds to get started.
Started by Thomas Buck, Internet entrepreneur, web developer and self-confessed terrible pianist, Interactwive offers a easy to use, web based service, to get the maximum out of Twitter and social networking.
