Unique Model Allows Members to Gain Recognition and Financial Rewards
for Content and Participation
MONTREAL, Oct. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Capazoo (www.capazoo.com) CEO Luc
Verville, and President Grant Carter today announced the official launch of
Capazoo.com, a radically different model of social networking and online
entertainment that allows members to achieve personal recognition and generate
real revenue based on their content and participation in site features and
Capazoo enters the social networking marketplace with a revolutionary
concept: why should their members "give it away?"
In addition to all the most popular features and services of websites
such as MySpace, YouTube, Revver and others, Capazoo provides a unique
business model that enables members to earn 'Zoops' - Capazoo points that can
be converted to real cash - through member-to-member Tipping, through referral
of friends and by sharing in Capazoo's advertising revenues and corporate
profits. Capazoo's unique Tipping feature allows members to give a Tip to
other members for their videos, photos, music, profiles, blogs and more.
Simply put, members earn real rewards from their virtual work.
"Today's technology allows everyone to be an artist, a journalist, a
movie producer or a writer. Everyone, through their distinctive web presence,
has a fan club of family, friends and associates. Capazoo allows members to
display their talent, however small, and reap the benefits from fans and our
Company," said Grant Carter, President of Capazoo. "We are what social
networking should be - a marketplace of ideas with its own currency, where
member contributions are truly valued."
Until now, social network users were accustomed to posting content on
their profiles with little or no compensation for their work. Meanwhile, the
most popular such sites, such as MySpace, generate tens of millions of dollars
in advertising revenue from their members' online presence. Capazoo is
creating a new online culture that encourages members to interact and reward
one another through the simple practice of virtual Tipping.
In addition, Capazoo provides substantive real-life benefits for its
members' online activities through programs such as Advertising Revenue
Sharing, Corporate Profit Distributions, the Capazoo Savings Program and the
Capazoo Cash Card.
What Are Zoops?
Zoops are Capazoo points that can be converted into real cash. Zoops can
be earned several ways including getting Tipped for posted content, inviting
friends to join, and sharing in Capazoo's advertising revenues and corporate
profits. Members are provided with a free, secure e-wallet with every profile
to manage Zoops, savings and other financial benefits. Zoops are converted to
cash through the Capazoo Cash Card - a full-featured debit card provided to
Privileged and VIP level members.
