BitWine continues to expand its global presence via its partnership with International Data Group’s TecChannel. IDG TecChannel is a site for IT professionals, with highly interactive forums.
BitWine enhances the value that online communities give their members while monetizing their loyalty. BitWine offers latest VoIP technology to allow forum participants to have immediate, online voice interaction. Participants or affiliates wishing to share their expertise on a paid basis can immediately connect to potential customers or they can interact as peers.
“This technology allows site publishers to enhance their community offerings by using VoIP to leverage the relationships people develop online,” said Elad Baron, BitWine’s CEO and co-founder. “Experts can help other community members in a direct, one-on-one, natural manner over the phone or using a computer video chat; meanwhile, site publishers receive a percentage for every professional consultation facilitated within their site.”
Under the new partnership, IDG has set up the TecChannel Expert Network @ BitWine, a TecChannel community of experts, tightly integrated with its Web site. TecChannel readers can now find relevant online experts while reading articles or while interacting within the site’s extensive technical forums.
BitWine allows professionals the opportunity to earn money via site forums. Expert users create profiles, and a BitWine “presence button” is added to their TecChannel forum profiles, allowing others to immediately see their fields of expertise. TecChannel has also added BitWine in-context widgets to individual articles, leading to TecChannel members with related expertise.
