Do You Pongr?

In the heaps and heaps of new social networks, there are winners and losers. My favorite new social network is Pongr. It is a new game-type site, and is insanely easy to use. Don’t believe me? here are the steps on how to use it.

  • Step 1 – Take Picture of a brand’s product
  • Step 2 – Send picture to (brandname)@pongr.com –examples: pepsi@pongr.com or kumandgo@pongr.com
  • Step 3 – thats it, now check out all the other pictures of your favorite company on Pongr.com

So there’s a little bit more to it than that. Similar to other sites you can make a profile and like other players. There’s also a feature to share your pictures on Twitter and Facebook. Right now there are quite a few lame pictures of products, but they are starting to be more and more interesting. One of them being this little gem, taken by our very own Steve Scheidecker.
I’m honestly surprised that more businesses aren’t taking advantage of this. Think about it, you’re a company and are looking for content to put on your Facebook page, website, whatever. Hmm, how about a picture of your product? NO! how about pictures of customers enjoying our product? Now you can either pay a photographer to take fake pictures, or… you could get on Pongr and pull some some real pictures from real customers who are actually fans of your company or product. A bonus is that you can connect with customers. Isn’t that the point social media, engaging with your customers/fans?

A website like Pongr highlights the fact that companies need to be aware of new social media venues. If you aren’t looking at new ways to promote your brand, I can assure you that your competition is, or soon will be.

One Response so far.

    Great bloggie, buddy. But one question: How does Steve feel about you sitting around at work all day looking at Kum and Go pics?
