Los Angeles, CA, August 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Becuzz is a free app being developed to micro-fund small peer-to-peer wishes. Setup a quick-campaign from $10-$599, then use like you would any other photo sharing app. When people “like” a post, they are actually micro-funding your quick-campaign. John Paukulis and the Becuzz Team chose Indiegogo to crowdfund the app and are sanctioning thousands of followers as perks (sharing their membership base with early adopters is an interesting approach in itself).
Becuzz comes with a free, pre-paid Visa card, available regardless of your credit history. There are no interest charges and no bank account is required. Your Becuzz card auto-links to your Becuzz app account for instant access to funds and can be used where ever Visa is accepted. Imagine a credit card where money goes in - not just out. When you use the Becuzz credit card in conjunction with the app, it is possible to fund a small goal and start spending in minutes.
Here’s an example. Join, and start a quick-campaign; Birthday Round of Drinks... $20. Then in 140 characters or less explain what you want. “I am turning 25 in less than an hour; please help me celebrate with a round of drinks.” Publish your campaigns in Pink or Blue then post pics or videos of whatever you want. Make your posts available to the main feed, just to your followers or to a private group. Becuzz members see those posts and can contribute in their name or anonymously from 1 penny to 5 dollars just by clicking on the "like” icon. 15 min later, birthday round of drinks, funded. That’s a social sharing app that makes “cents!”
Once you've reached your financial goal, you can move the funds over to your Becuzz Visa card and buy a round of drinks. Leave your campaign open and over-fund to cover the Becuzz commission, which will range from 3-9% depending on credit card fees and type of campaign chosen. The Becuzz team suggests using over-funding to give back to your followers. It will only encourage them to continue to give back to you. All transactions will be made using a virtual wallet available on Becuzz.
It’s easy to create a Becuzz quick-campaign, but for those of us who don’t have the time, simply create an account and post as you would on any photo sharing app, but leave your “wallet” open. Think how much better posts would be…Becuzz this social network has a positive "giving" message and gangsta selfies may actually hurt your campaign. Have fun, share your life, give and see what you get.
The Indiegogo campaign funding goal of $18,000 has been set and your help is needed to get the app to market.
