ENCOUNTER TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES ROAR AS ITS FIRST TECHNOLOGY PRODUCT. http://www.mmdnewswire.com/encounter-technologies-58192.html August 8, 2011 (MMD Newswire) - Encounter Development Technologies, Inc. (Encounterdt.com) (PINK: ENTI), specializing in social media, video technologies, and online streaming solutions, announced today the unveiling of its new "ROAR!" Social Media sharing tool that allows users to earn points that can be redeemed for cash and/or prizes just by "ROARING!" about their favorite products and places to others who belong in their Social Networks. "This is an exciting time for us and our Investors," stated Encounterdt CEO Thomas Hargis. "We are taking Social Networking to the next logical place, monetization." According to Hargis, the premise is simple. People share their likes and favorites with people in their Networks, and the click-throughs to the sites people LIKE earn points for the posters. Each click adds to the poster's "Prides," earning them points they can exchange for both cash and/or prizes. "ROAR!" is a broad-based way to monetize your Social Network that works regardless of what, or which Platform you have built your following upon. Most Platforms don't pay their Users, and the few that do make it extremely difficult for Users to get a fair share. That's what makes "ROAR's!" concept and marketability so unique," Hargis said in a CEO Podcast today (August 08, 2011). He goes on to explain that this concept gives an incentive to Users to share their likes and locations, and gives Advertisers the opportunity to target specifically the Users they are seeking on their sites, apps, and brick-and-mortar locations. "The biggest incentive for Advertisers here is that not only do we have highly targeted End User reach, but we have stop-gaps built into our algorithm that prevents false click-throughs and over-clicking," Hargis said. "It's more cost-effective for the Advertiser, more targeted, and builds on the friend referral system that makes Social Networking so effective as a Marketing tool." Hargis adds that he knows businesses appreciate the referrals they get from customers, and they know it's good business to reward those people who want to help promote you. "ROAR!" gives Advertisers what they are looking for and End Users the rewards they deserve. "It really is a win-win," stated Hargis. "While this Project is in development now, we will Announce the public phase of the BETA-Testing in the coming weeks, and certainly invite our Investors to give it a try. Once we move out of BETA, we go full-steam-ahead and onto some of our other big Projects that we have waiting in the wings."
