myTAG, the fresh, free, safe local ecommerce site, today announced a $500 contest to encourage people who sign up for Beta testing to refer others to do the same.
When people sign up for the site, they’ll be given a special referral code they simply need to email, text or post on their social media sites for others to use to create their own myTAG accounts. Once a person has referred at least 10 people, he or she will be entered into the contest.
"We think this incentive will not only help spread the word about our innovative, hip new site but also encourage a flood of users to post what they want to buy and sell quickly," says Kelly Clonan, VP of Marketing. "The more people post items for sale, the more quickly we can compete with in the ecommerce sphere – and the more fun people will have enjoying the unique qualities of the myTAG platform."
Indeed, myTAG is unique in that it combines local ecommerce with social media aspects that bring trust, transparency and credibility back to the system. Unlike other ecommerce platforms, users are required to leave feedback and vouch or not vouch for transaction quality, providing people with myTAG user ratings. myTAG also allows users to earn badges for completing fun milestones and to link their ebay and Amazon ratings and other social media profiles to their accounts to gain more credibility. In addition, it uses a patent-pending buying and selling system that matches keywords and hashtags to make seamless connections between purchasing wishes and items for sale.

Founded in 2011 by CEO Tony Pham, myTAG allows local users to buy and sell online free. It’s building an online community for people to find each other using a patent-pending tagging system. This interactive social utility platform lets users create their own price "TAGS" for the things they're selling or wish to buy. myTAG then seamlessly connects these "TAGS." Additionally, people can view seller ratings and user feedback so they can better decide with whom they trust to do business. Buyers and sellers connected. Finally. Without headaches, fear or fees.
