Sqeeqee.com held our first town hall event by UC Riverside, and it turned out great. We had about a dozen attendees from ages 21 to 45. We went over each of Sqeeqee’s features and how it benefits a given user. One of our attendees in her mid 20s asked us about our e-commerce feature and how it would benefit her.
“Social commerce” is the future, and we are thrilled to be the first social media site to hold a patent to a unique combination we have yet to see on any current social media sites. E-commerce is a $500 billion industry led by Amazon and eBay. From a user’s point of view, combining social networking and e-commerce in one simple platform has limitless potential.
Direct selling is a $150 billion industry and growing. There’s a saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” We believe we all have something to sell. Why not place your unwanted items on your social media wall? You might have an unwanted used book; an old iPhone 4 because you want to buy that new iPhone 5; or a blouse that your gal pals just don't think looks good on you, but you can't find that darn receipt. How about that bike shop of yours down at the pier? Your social media page may have several thousand friends or followers already; they could visit “Your Shop” and take a look at some of those bikes you have for sale. Through simple PayPal transactions, the number of “friends” or “followers” you have become your buyers.
Sqeeqee.com has made it simple. With just a few clicks, a user can literally add any items he or she wishes to sell. The possibilities are endless for “social commerce.”
Sqeeqee.com plans to travel across this nation and continue to hold these town hall events at nearby college campuses. Please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to book an event near your area.
