[prMac.com] Sao Paulo, Brazil - Save money and help others to save. A finely-excecuted balance between fun and practicality makes Wesave the best application to use for sharing offers and helping everyone really save.
The marketing potential of word-of-mouth has never been as important as it is today. Countless studies demonstrate ordinary people's ever-increasing influence over products and services. Today, thanks to both the Internet and to social media, a wide variety of tools are emerging which empower consumers by alerting them to new offers while allowing them to pass-on their opinions on products and services to future consumers and customers.
It's against this background that we are proud to announce the launch of Wesave, a new application for your iPhone (with an Android version hot on its heels in development) which allows users to quickly and easily share the best available offers in an area with other users, to control how much they save via these offers and to see how much they help others save.
The simple premise behind Wesave is the idea that as well as enjoying making a saving, consumers today also want to pass-on their experiences to other consumers, by alerting others to new offers and commenting on products and services to friends.
From this arises one of Wesave's most distinctive features: all content is user-generated and as users continue adding content the system becomes progressivly smarter and more powerful.
Another distinguishing characteristic of Wesave is the fact that it is the ideal tool for consumers to spread, share and interact with both retail products, such as clothing, accessories, cosmetics and electronics, and a whole range of traditional and contemporary services.
Stylishly presented and easy to use, with Wesave an offer's location is simple to fix and pass-on, thanks to the device's GPS. Furthermore, since anybody can add an offer, including shop owners, the application can be used as a free advertising tool. Anything appearing on Wesave can be quickly and easily shared on Twitter and Facebook.
Another advantage Wesave offers is in allowing you to keep a record of how much you save yourself and others! Each offer added to Wesave has both its original price and its discounted price displayed, that way whenever somebody shows that he has "bought" an offer displayed on Wesave the system registers how much the user saved, and the user who originally uploaded the offer earns points for helping someone else to save.
Wesave benefits from the latest in game mechanics allowing it to create a user-experience that is both worthwhile and entertaining. One of the most innovative elements of the app's mechanics is the profile-tree, which develops in tandem with the user's interaction with the app. The more often users share offers, the more they save and the larger their profile-tree grows in relation to other users'profile-trees.
Wesave's game mechanics also stand out for their efficiency. Any user who wishes to acquire the "Expert" badge, for instance, not only has to hit the top spot in popularity based on offers made in a given area but must also stay there for twenty consecutive days. It's this finely-excecuted balance between fun and practicality that Wesave embodies which makes Wesave the application to use for sharing offers and helping everyone really save.
