  • November 10, 2011

BrandNinjas.comIt’s not often that small companies and emerging startups get a chance to build their brands like the big boys can, so having a site like around is something to be thankful for. BrandNinjas lets people have their own brands built by top designers from all over the world, paying what they can afford, and not a cent more. If you use this site, you can start a design contest and have designers compete among themselves. You define a budget, create a deadline, and artists will submit their own designs. You’ll then pick the best one and implement it. The artist will be paid, and he will also get a medal for his efforts.

There are actually three kind of medals available (bronze, silver and gold), with each adding more points to any artist’s cumulative score. This score can be compared with a belt rank, and artists on go all the way from white to black.

Obviously, each artist has also got a full portfolio that you can check as part of his profile, so that you get a much better understanding of what he can do (and what you can demand from him) right from the start.

So, this is a site that will let you hire the design services of some of the brightest artists worldwide to build your brand, without having to pay an arm and a leg. As I said at the beginning, it’s not often that people who are just getting started get such a chance, so if were you I would definitely give this site a good look.

More – Battle Bands And Become More Popular

  • June 20, 2011

SoundSpar.comWhen you are in a band, it is only natural to think that you all are the best musicians in the whole wide world. I mean, it is impossible to walk on a stage night after night if you have doubts about your own excellence. The whole band has to tell itself that nobody even comes close. Yet, have you really got what it takes to conquer one stage after the other? This website is here to let you find that out.

On, bands and performers from throughout the world can take on each other. Musically, that is. Each band that is featured on the site can challenge any other to a popularity duel, and the outcome of such a duel will be decided by the votes of fans.

Theoretically-speaking, this should mean that the one band that has a larger number of followers on social sites is the one that will walk from the fray holding its head up high.

It is an interesting concept, and one that seems ready-made for this age in which sites like Facebook and Twitter define and nurture the way in which punters connect with those they support.

  • November 19, 2010

ClipClash.comAre you the kind who keeps on lamenting how lame MTV has become?

More – Where Studying Becomes A Game

  • October 20, 2010

Gradega.meThe best way to motivate someone who seems to lack focus to do something is by making it all resemble a game. The problem is that there are some things that (by their mere nature) can’t mesh with the overall concept of recreation. Studying is one of these. Or is it?

The ones who have created this startup would be inclined to disagree. Named Grade Game, it aims to make studying and game-playing occupy the very same square.

Those who use this site will have a chance to compete with their classmates based on their grades. As a matter of fact, they will be able to compete with students from the whole educational institution they attend.

As a service, Grade Game is primarily aimed at University students. I am a little surprised by that – elementary and secondary students would be a much better demographic for something like this, if only because those who are younger are even more partial to playing games. I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see in which direction this startup is headed, and whether other demographics begin being targeted or not.

More – Turning Gmail Into A Game

  • September 22, 2010

0Boxer.comYou might like this site or not, but you can’t deny that the idea is quite original. Basically, 0 Boxer is a service that turns Gmail into a game in which you are rewarded for performing specific actions.

For example, if you reply to the emails that you have received you will get points. And you will also be rewarded if you archive and/or delete them.

The idea is that you will compete with your friends in order to see who has the most organized inbox. And a leaderboard is also featured on the main page, letting you compete with just everybody.

Future updates are going to introduce badges into the gaming dynamics of the site. These will be awarded to the ones who conquer certain milestones, and they will obviously make the whole competition much funnier.

In any case, it must be said that a service like 0 Boxer goes well beyond being a mere game. Something like it can be used to develop more ordered email habits. Just think about the pile of emails that one usually leaves unanswered, and how that hinders productivity. Using 0 Boxer might just let us all start changing these habits and start adopting a more productive frame of mind.

CashbackBids.comA brand-new service, Cashback Bids has the objective of letting users get the highest cashback and listing commission discounts from their local Real Estate agents in a novel way: by approaching the whole process as if it were an auction. That is, on the site people who are looking into buying or selling property can create a cashback and/or listing commission auction and then receive bids from local Real Estate agents.

Buyers/sellers can then proceed to select the best offer and effectively save money by maximizing their cashback and commission discounts.

Auctions can be created anonymously, and a 3-step wizard will guide you along the way. The process entails little more than creating the auction, receiving bids and comparing them in an entirely intuitive setting. Also, auctions are created without commitments – creating an auction doesn’t bind you legally to use the services of any Real Estate agent that approaches you.

The information that you have to supply when creating the auction consists of the kind of property that you intend to buy or sell, its location, the number of bedrooms and the price you have in mind for the auction page to be generated and listed.

More – Networking For Sportsmen

  • April 15, 2010

Beta.Adreeno.comAdreeno is a social networking site that is geared towards sportsmen and those who are keen on active lifestyles. Naturally, all the basic functions like messaging each other and sharing media are taken into account, and the site places a lot of value on promoting competitions among members of the network.

After all, is there a more competitive audience than sportsmen?

These events are announced on the main page, and as you can imagine extensive coverage is provided afterwards on what went down, who won and who should have stayed at the gym doing pushups. And by taking part of events, users actually earn points and trophies that can then be proudly displayed.

As you can see, this network is quite distinctive owing to the emphasis it places on offscreen interaction. Unfortunately, I am not what you could call athletic so I am afraid I am excluded of mostly anything that goes on here. But if you can tell a different story, give it a look by any and all means.

More – Turn YouTube Into A Battlefield

  • April 15, 2010

YouTourney.comThe idea behind this site is quite easy to apprehend: it turns YouTube into a battlefield into which videos are pitched one against the other, and people vote on the one who they like best.

That is, through the site anybody can choose two videos (say, one with the best footage of Mike Tyson on the ring and another with footage of George Foreman) and have everybody vote for “the winner”.

The site is self-defined as the place where you can create video tournaments, and I think that from what has been just explained we all agree that is 100 % accurate.

A system like this one will let you compare everything from music performances and official videos to movie trailers and the top moments of any sport you are partial to. Of course, nothing prevents you from making a totally incongruous comparison when you are bored, like pitching a video of Lady Gaga against a speech by some figurehead you can’t stand. The potential for fun of this site is quite high, and I can guarantee you that the results will speak for themselves when they come.
