There's no doubt that social media plays a major role in the growth of
a business today, but there's one new experimental concept that will
either take off, or crash, because it doesn't leave a whole lot of room
for business profit.
Pay With a Tweet
Pay With a Tweet has just launched and what it's trying to do is allow businesses the opportunity to market their products or services. It's designed primarily for marketing and creative industries to give people a chance to sample their content, without the business or individual having to give it up for free. Tangible items can also be distributed, businesses strictly need to post what they're offering on the site. Consumers can select that they'd like to try the product.
Nothing is entirely for free, but with all of these products and services listed, it's pretty darn close. The only catch is that for any product or service you receive, you send out a tweet about it to help spread the word about the business!
Right now this concept is only being tested, and it's a downloadable book that's on offer first!
