I totally planned to do Vegas in order, but, well, I can’t. I have to get just a little bit ahead of myself. I am going to jump ahead to 4:00 Saturday afternoon and introduce you to Sparkie. Cause I love me some Sparkie. Colleen wants to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant, but I am even more committed. I think I could have Sparkie’s babies, and you know, that’s saying a lot, because I’ve already been there and done that. Eight times.
So, Cass, what/who is Sparkie? That’s what I call the little troll guy who represents SocialSpark. And what is SocialSpark? It’s a new thing, and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be the next BIG thing. SocialSpark is a meet and greet for Word of Mouth advertising, and a stats package, and a networking site and, and, and. There is so much in SocialSpark that I cannot possibly explain it all, but it is going to be THE place to find other bloggers, advertisers, social media outlets and more. And, yeah, it’s brought to you by Izea.
Says Ted Murphy, “We have taken our highly successful PayPerPost model and flipped it inside out, creating a completely new model for social media advertising that extends beyond sponsored posts and opens up a wealth of new opportunities. In many ways we are disrupting our own disruptor.” And according to Peter Wright, VP of Software Development at IZEA. “Our goal is to provide advertisers and bloggers with the most relevant data possible in order to make informed decisions.”
I’m going to be one of the early adopters of SocialSpark because of my attendance at PostieCon07, and Pete says our keys will be coming out shortly. We’re going to do our best to break it before it’s released to the public in January. This is a great move on the part of the Izea team, especially considering the fallout after the last major release. So, do you you think those babies will have stand up orange hair or dark curly hair???
