Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) July 22, 2010
Media veteran Kyle Newton offers his a venture, Tribus, which combines the latest social media tools under one portal that offers e-commerce with the data retention tools businesses seek. Tribus makes managing multiple social media tools, online classes and e-commerce easy by combining them into one ‘mega social media platform.’ Tribus also offers a rewards program, online business directory and relationship tracking and referral tools.
Business owners question the use and retention of data obtained via social networking web sites. Facebook recently announced changes that makes it easier for a third party to access to user’s data, without giving those same users a clear, simple way to retrieve their own data from their Facebook account.
“Tribus alleviates many of the concerns business owners have with social media,” Kyle Newton, Tribus founder, explained. “For example, you own your data not us. So when the social media tool of the month is gone, your data doesn’t leave with it.”
Tribus is not just another social media tool that allows users to connect with millions of people. It is an e-commerce site for business owners linking them with the thousands of other individuals already using Tribus and it allows them to receive a ‘seller rating’ made popular by Amazon.com. It also allows business-owners to manage their free or fee-based online courses and so much more.
“As we all know, the big guys can change the rules in the blink of an eye and the traction you’ve gained today can be gone tomorrow,” Newton said. “Your business on the internet should not be tied to one marketing tool.”
Tribus is the Latin word for tribe. Kyle Newton created Tribus so that anyone with a network (A Tribe) can easily use multiple technologies in one software package to service and monetize their tribe. The company provides tools for tribe leaders to share their message with the world and their tribe while enabling others with a shared interest, passion and cause to find and join their group. Tribus does this in addition to providing cutting edge online and offline resources for businesses to connect, communicate and grow together.
