Wahooly is Open for Business!

A guest article by Paul. You too can be part of this great knowledge sharing community. Take a look at our guest blogging guidelines.

Wahooly, not just a company with a wild name, is a hot start-up focused on helping launch other start-ups. The way Wahooly hopes to accomplish its goal isn’t traditional by any standards. However, it is more in line with current marketing ideas and practices. Rather than requiring users to fork over money to support a project, Wahooly takes advantage of social promotion, connectivity, and feedback as a means of supporting and growing the start-up. As compensation for their support, users become invested in the new company.

 

Sounds pretty cool, right? So, how does it really work?

An example from Wahooly’s site describing its service goes as follows: imagine there is a new, social, photo-sharing site that needs help getting its feet off the ground. After setting up a deal with Wahooly, the photo start-up is presented to Wahooly users who, if they think the site has potential, can sign up to support it and help it grow. The number of users who can sign up to support is limited to a pre-defined amount depending on the needs of the start-up. Each user will then hold an equal share of a portion of the start-up.

How do Wahooly users make money, and what’s in it for the start-up?

Ultimately, the value of a user’s share is dependent upon how much they help the start-up. Active Wahooly users, those that contribute high quality feedback and are the biggest advocates for the brand, are rewarded with more points, meaning an increased value of their share. Users can track the always-fluctuating value of their share and their ranking amongst the other photo start-ups supporters on their Dashboard page.

It’s a win-win situation for both the start-up and users: the more buzz built and improvements to the start-up, the more compensation a user receives!

Quality supporters are the biggest help

Not just anyone is able to hop in on the Wahooly action. Wahooly partnered with Klout, the questionably reliable social-influence measurement site, to find over 25,000 high-ranking influencers. These users are very socially connected and are probably early adopters. Needless to say, highly influential people who are credible and can reach out to many others can be utilized to great effect for promotion. I’m hoping that Wahooly is kept as an exclusive system to maintain the quality of service it hopes to provide.

Wahooly launches with three start-ups

Wahooly launched, albeit in beta mode, on February 1st with three start-up companies looking for support. Over the course of 2012, Wahooly will introduce over 200 more start-ups to its users, most of which are consumer-targeted, web-based applications.

Wahooly definitely has an interesting model and may provide more to its users and clients than any other site like it. Only time will tell if what it strives to do comes to fruition. A quick way to tell is if some of the first start-ups to be introduced on the site achieve success. As Wahooly says, “social capital is the future,” but can Wahooly really put it to use in a way we haven’t seen before?

     Email marketing is directly marketing a commercial message to a group of people using electronic mail (email).
    In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current
    customer could be considered email marketing. It usually involves using
    email to send ads, request business, or solicit sales or donations, and
    is meant to build loyalty, trust, or brand awareness.
