Chitsie Launches With Brand Promotions and Real Prizes From StartupGrid, The Inspired Cookie, The Founding MomsPatch Reporter Turns Entrepreneur With a Cool Marketing Solution for Startups (May 15, 2012)
CUPERTINO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- Chitsie LLC recently launched a beta version of its internet marketing platform to help startups and mid-sized businesses accelerate their digital marketing efforts in a super fun way via contests and games.
"Chitsie.com adds a fun spin to online marketing, which is a $31B industry," says Anurag Singla, a seasoned technology professional, and an advisor to the startup.
For startups low on capital and looking to create a quick buzz, Chitsie.com designs, runs and manages their brand campaigns, and also markets them to their target audiences.
The Chitsie platform is geared towards idea generation, user engagement and user acquisition. It comes loaded with built in add-ons such as social media connect and elements of gamification.
StartupGrid, a searchable, sortable database of gaming companies, is running "The Missing Link Contest" on Chitsie, challenging users to discover the missing piece of the existing startup networks. The company is giving away cash prizes to the tune of $750.
Chitsie.com lends its users a unique opportunity of smartly engaging with brands and winning prizes. Participation is free, fun, and rewarding.
San Francisco-based company, The Inspired Cookie, is giving away $800 worth of gift certificates in "Name the Bar Game" brand promotion.
"I believe there is high value in helping SMBs with marketing and brand promotion, and Chitsie provides the platform to do so effectively," says Eric Sytwu of Presidio Ventures.
In the two weeks that Chitsie has been around, it has logged visitors from 39 countries and 268 cities across the world, with United States topping the list.
"Like Groupon has taken the local advertising scene by storm, we hope to disrupt traditional marketing with Chitsie," says Founder, Chitra Rakesh. "Initially, I did not have the guts," confesses first-time-entrepreneur.
Jill Salzman of The Founding Moms says, "It's a brilliant concept... I'm pretty confident that Chitsie.com will thrive in the digital marketing arena."
The Founding Moms is running a "Mom Entrepreneur Challenge," on Chitsie, as they gear to launch The Founding Moms Community on June 1. Membership to the community and other cool prizes can be won.
"Winning a drawing or a sweepskates is great but winning on the basis of merit is even better," says Rakesh.
