Announced today, Sticker Mule, the custom printing company, has launched a new social network called Stimulus. Stimulus is a happy social network where giveaways replace advertising, creativity flourishes, and all users are verified to eliminate bot spam, fraud, and abuse. The new social media network is privately funded so it is free to focus on making the experience happier, unlike other networks that are funded by investors or political partisans
On Twitter alone, advertisers spend $4.5 billion per year to promote tweets with no financial benefit to users. That’s enough money to send $500 checks to 9 million people. Stimulus shows advertisers that direct interaction with users provides better returns than traditional ad spends. It puts the power and money in the hands of the people, not digital media giants.
On Stimulus, brands (or generous individuals), earn attention by attaching giveaways to their posts — Stimulus calls them stims. People can enter giveaways by replying, liking, or sharing, or as Stimulus says — restimming. Stimulus randomly selects winners from its lists of verified entrants and distributes prizes to ensure fairness.
Anyone can sign up on Stimulus and browse, but users must be verified before participating in conversations or engaging giveaway posts. Currently, Stimulus says verification is only available for U.S. residents as it is difficult to support international giveaway regulations.
U.S. residents interested in happy social media can sign up on the stimulus website, get verified, and join today. Contributor accounts that may run giveaways are still being tested. Stimulus is accepting a limited number of early contributors who commit to give away a minimum of $25,000 over 6 months.
Stimulus is a happy social network where giveaways replace advertising. Brands need attention to grow, people need money to live – Stimulus helps both. (stimulus.com)
