Womzit Unveils Word-of-Mouth App Dedicated to Positive Recommendations
AUSTIN,Texas, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Womzit announced today that it will be launching its debut iPhone App at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences and Festivals in Austin TX (March 9-18, 2012). With over 5,000 events taking place at this annual convergence of original music, independent films and emerging technologies, one can easily get lost in the sea of choices.
With Womzit (an abbreviation for “word-of-mouth it”), attendees can spread their positive word-of-mouth about the up-and-coming bands, groundbreaking films and interactive geniuses that they encounter at this mega-event and quickly recommend their discoveries to their favorite social networks.
Womzit is a social utility that allows users to curate a personally relevant recommendation feed for them to both spread and discover great experiences through word-of-mouth recommendations. Tired of inane status updates that do not add value to anyone, the app aims to build a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about spreading experiences that are truly word-of-mouth worthy. These experiences could be as simple as an awesome new cafe, the latest fashion accessory, a great movie or even a street musician they just discovered.
Womzit isn’t a run-of-the-mill photo sharing app. While it is populated with stunning images and equips its users with customized photo filters, Womzit is not about taking nice pictures. It is about recommending the things that matter. The app guides the user to select a recommendation level before snapping a picture or uploading an image of the product or place they are recommending. Users can “recommend”, “highly recommend”, or be “off-the-charts” about the experience. They can allocate their image to a category, tag it to a location and create a “brand tag” to make their recommendation even more discoverable. And it does not stop there. Their recommendations are seamlessly pushed out to existing social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare and Posterous. Talk about getting the word out with style!
Another daring feature which sets Womzit apart is the apps’ ability to measure the velocity of the community’s word-of-mouth. Each “womz” or word-of-mouth post has an impressions counter which totals the number of people the word-of-mouth has been shared with on Womzit, Facebook and Twitter. The counter also increases each time another user chooses to “rewomz” the original womz to his or her own followers. This allows users to compete with friends on their leaderboard to see who has the greatest word-of-mouth influence.
