Distinguish your Quality Friends, Fans, and Customers vs Quantity Types Online

Now that our core products (awesome people, awesome companies, awesome products,  and awesome services) are built and over 270 companies have set up their pages on awesomize.me, here is the blog post to address what the site is all about for you, the user/consumer…”why bother having a page on awesomize.me when I’m  already so engaged with my other pages on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages?”

The Q&As below are based on the feedback from the companies and users already utilizing our site.  Before you go through them, let me give a hint:

Well, we hope we can help you with that.  awesomize.me will help you to distinguish your qualitative vs. quantitative fans & friends online.

Let me also put it this way: It was first the internet in early 90′s. So, everyone felt like having a presence on the web. In a short period of time, the Web got cluttered with hundreds of thousands Web sites. Then, came along the search engine and later on Google to make it easier for the users to find the right info/website by typing a simple keyword in their search box.

Then, there was the social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter that has let people and companies to have a fan pages with a link back to their site. Now everyone  has a personal and corporate on Facebook and twitter. Don’t you think we are back to the mid 90′s, the pre search engine era? How does one user know who to follow and where to follow? That’s where awesomize.me is born with the goal to help you and your company to a) find the right social media channel effectively b) Distinguish your qualitative vs. quantitative fans & friends online, and more. 🙂
