Burlingame, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Wimeme, Inc., a social media marketing SaaS company focused on the monetization of user-generated content, announces the launch of a limited release of ShowMeFotos, a new affordable, easy-to-use, software service to set up and moderate social photo contests without the expense of designing, developing, and distributing mobile applications. ShowMeFotos uses patented technology to allow SMBs (small and medium-sized businesses) to monetize social photo enthusiasm and user-generated content by branding and syndicating user-generated content. ShowMeFotos is open to a limited number of small business customers throughout the summer at http://www.showmefotos.com.
Explaining how ShowMeFotos takes mobile marketing for small businesses to a new level, Wimeme Founder Skip Roncal said, “We provide small businesses with a novel solution to establish an affinity-based relationship with their target customers by leveraging the 3 most popular social media trends in the market today: texting, taking photos and searching for promotional offers. With a reported 500 million photos uploaded daily, our social photo contest service provides SMBs a great opportunity to acquire new customers.”
The ShowMeFotos Foto-Frame is a new media format that supports any phone, any language and can be used for any event where consumers are inclined to commemorate their experience. By providing a promotional service that prompts users to submit their user-generated content (photos) as part of a social media campaign, ShowMeFotos provides a bridge for the marketer to engage consumers. When asked about the vision for the service Skip Roncal said, “Our long-term goals are to integrate our service into larger properties such as sports and entertainment venues so that consumers attending sponsored events such as FIFA World Cup, The Olympics, The World Series, etc. can be rewarded for commemorating their experiences through mobile photography. Consider baseball fans, a business owner launches ‘Best Fan Spirit Photo Contest’ and when fans participate they receive a commemorative team foto-frame along with a promotional message. When the consumer shares the photo the owner obtains a new impression and potentially a new customer.”
To get started, a business simply needs to complete the online photo contest form to start their first social photo contest. ShowMeFotos will approve and confirm new accounts by email and include tips for promoting the contest, as well as provide retailers with stylish decal for their door front. Once satisfied with the set-up of your photo contest, the $99 monthly subscription fee includes delivery of 200 promotional messages, a dedicated photo contest site and gallery, among other entitlements.
