VoteBash – a new brand and a worldwide social voting site

What is VoteBash? VoteBash is a worldwide, online social voting site which was just launched recently. The idea is simple. VoteBash gives people the freedom to speak out their mind and to find out what other people think about inspiring and up-to-date topics. VoteBash is great for brands and organizations who want to simultaneously distribute their brand or cause and get important insights from their audience. Everybody is entitled to an opinion – and sign-up is for free. Therefore, join VoteBash and become a “voter” and “citizen”! Who is the creator of VoteBash? VoteBash is a privately-held company and is founded in Wilmington, Delaware, USA. The company is headquartered in Raleigh, NC, USA (Research Triangle Area). The CEO and Founder, Martijn Atell, has worked and lived in the Netherlands, Germany and the United States. He holds a BSc in Electrical Engineering with honors and a BSc in Information Communication Technology both from Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. He has over ten years of experience at a Fortune Global 500 automotive company. With VoteBash he is carrying out the mission to surface the opinions of others and make them more accessible in a universal way and combines individuality, connectivity, unity and fun. What does the new VoteBash Brand stand for? The concept behind the new VoteBash logo is simple. Starting from the idea of a social network, the graphic part shows a typical social symbol (the comic balloon) with the initials “V” and “B” in it.  At the same time, the letter “B” symbols a heart. This symbol refers to the preferences, the opinions and the passions of the voters which are the most important part of our community. How does VoteBash work? VoteBash offers you the possibility to share a “Voteled” to find out the opinion of other users (citizens). A “Voteled” is a one-question-poll which can be enriched with imagery or a custom button for people to earn and a backlink to a website or resource of your choosing. This is a perfect opportunity for brands and organizations to expose logos, product imagery and to drive free traffic to their business or cause. VoteBash is currently available in many different languages and in approx. 30 countries. When you have created your “Voteled”, people can vote on it for eight weeks. After that, the voting will be closed, but the “Voteled” will still be visible with the end result. As an example we have inserted a screenshot of the Voteled Billboard below. You can see the different topics like Entertainment, Sports, Lifestyle Travel, Product & Consumer etc. If you are interested in one of the sectors you can click them, to see some more questions which fit to the topic. In a next step you can answer the question you are interested in. There are between 2 - 5 possible answers given. After voting you can see how many people voted and what answers they gave. With every vote you earn a viral button for your profile. If you click this button, you will be redirected to the connecting Voteled. Sign up is free, but brands and organizations can apply for a paid VoteBash Verified Business Account when they sign up as an organization and are trademark owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right. For more information, follow the link:   Only accounts with a blue verified badge next to the citizen screen name are verified accounts. Where can I find out more?

Also, for more information please see Martijn Atell’s most recent interview: Personal note by the author, Alexandra Dellmeier: LexDellmeier IP Law Firm is extremely proud to present Martijn Atell and his new social media platform on our blog. Martijn is not just a personal friend and a fantastic entrepreneur, but used to be, literally the closest trademark client we had – approx. 30 feet away from LexDellmeier’s office entrance. We have been involved since the “birth” of the name “VoteBash” and have seen his project develop and go online. Martijn and his wife Bettina meanwhile moved to the United States where he will grow his social voting site to a house hold brand. We wish Martijn all the best and a great success with VoteBash in the upcoming months and years. We would be delighted if you support Martijn, too, by signing up, voting and contributing at VoteBash.
