Santo Domingo. R.D.- Dominican Republic was the venue chosen to present for the first time the website ViralRepublic.com, the only global platform dedicated to finding different kinds of talent. The launch in the country of the portal will take place during a cocktail that will be held this Friday, October 13 at the Taboo Bamboo restaurant, on the Roberto Pastoriza avenue of this capital
ViralRepublic.com premiered on September 1 with an extraordinary audience of more than 15,736 impressions for its first day of opening and with a total of more than 1,000 users and approximately 500 contestants. Florent Saint-Clair, founder and president of Viral Republic, explained that before the day of the opening, he did not expect more than 1,500 visits, and was surprised by the results of the Dominican netizens. The month of September of Viral Republic concluded with an exact total of 73,750 impressions.
Florent, also said, that the mechanisms that we thought from the beginning were:
1-After the participant uploads their content, the best option to earn points is using our system to "share" the video to their different social networks, direct from Viral Republic. This means that all of your users visit Viral Republic to help their friends or family members acquire points. Viral Republic puts your social networks to work for you, that's why it's the name Viral Republic.
2-The participants, are forced to visit Viral Republic at every moment, to see if their points have increased.
3-We elaborate a system, where each participant with talent, and at the same time with good score, win extraordinary prizes. This is even more striking for any user to participate, since in other social networks they only receive "Likes" in exchange for NOTHING.
4-We created a system called the Top 20, where netizens can see, in real time, who are the 20 contestants with the highest score until the last moment. The Top 20 implies that netizens want to try harder to make their video even more viral, to try to reach the first place.
Viral Republic, original Silicon Valley, California, has a staff of more than 15 people, including software engineers, creatives, publicists, and several experts in security on the web.
Our platform has a web page, connected to 2 applications for cell phones and tablets, with Android (Google) system and iOS (Apple) system.
Florent explains that Viral Republic is not just a web page to search for talent, because the ideas that can be made are incalculable to develop any type of contests or promotions. He concludes by explaining that beyond the competition, Viral Republic will be producing a music video with the collaboration of some of the best talented artists of the 1st and 2nd Viral Republic competition.
The music video will include singers, rappers and dancers; the subject will specifically deal with pride in the Latino culture and the life we live day after day in the world. Artists who did not know each other a month ago, from communities throughout the Dominican Republic, will be working together in solidarity with other Latino communities, which have fallen on hard times due to recent natural disasters in countries such as Puerto Rico and Mexico. The music video will create new possibilities for new talented artists to be developed, promoted and discovered, using the power of the Internet to take advantage of a virtual community of followers, and for a good purpose: to help others.
