Share Purchases, Be Cool
Be Social, Pay Less
November 2015 - Worldz is founded. A disruptive tool for ecommerce, it monetizes the social popularity of each of us. A true innovation on the web. It uses the theory of WOMM (word of mouth marketing, Wikipedia) to increase e-commerce impact and conversions.
On one hand Worldz provides a network for e-commerce based businesses, which allows companies to increase their commercial impact and sales conversions. On the other hand, it also deals with customers individually, rewarding popularity, and assuring a deeper customer loyalty towards these web based businesses.
To explain how it works for ecommerce and vendors, the startup has made a B2B website, with the latest features available, press button here.
Worldz is a community of advisors and a tool/plugin specifically designed for e-commerce. Through an algorithm, it understands users popularity and impact on Facebook and it gives them an economic value. This value is then used as a discount for their purchases with e-commerce partners. The start up's original slogan “Share Purchases, Be Cool” and the new one "Be social, Pay Less" reflect the underlying social innovation, if you want to know more about the impact that Worldz is making, read this article (in Italian) in StartupItalia!
