So what is QleeQ?

QleeQ Overview

QleeQ, with a patent pending idea, is developing a Product that is Ranking the Web, Sensing the most suitable web opinion on the user’s Sensetence and quickly presenting a simple scale that the user will be able to read in-a-glace.

Search engines, Social Media and Wikis gather the Web or vertical market of the web and either present overwhelming number of results for the user to surf and decide, or presents a small oriented experts that try to solve Pure Facts Knowledge or best cases. In either way the user has to decide if the answer is correct and is suitable for him and spend time in both waiting for an answer or surf all the sites, blogs and wikis to find the opinion. Many companies (like News agencies, Commerce and others) invest a lot of efforts (time and money) to verify the most common opinion on its interesting Sensetences. The expenses users and companies made are in their core and non-core activities; hence carry implementation and maintenance costs.
Many surveys and researches were conducted about the mass information over the Web and to make it even more complicated, the Web 2.0 created a long tail of knowledge providers (blogs, websites, forums, social media etc.) thus making the information extraction a challenge. QleeQ solves this issue by presenting a user-friendly Scale to orient the user to the correct opinion.

WOM - Word of Mouth, is it still relevant?

WOM - Word of Mouth is an old-new approach for spreading the Word about your business out. This approach is relying heavily (almost solely) on friends. Your Facebook friends? Your Twitter friends? Your LinkedIn friends? well, all of them. You think you know them? think again.

Yet, in this environment populated by marketers, consumers are becoming more skeptical. A 2010 study by PR firm Edelman showed that the number of people who view their friends as credible sources of brand recommendations has dropped 20 percent since 2008. 

Only 25 percent of respondents said they believed their networks

One explanation behind this trend, Advertising Age suggests, is that consumers are increasingly concerned that customer evangelism might not be as genuine, after all. Today,people approach positive reviews and posts with skepticism because they expect the so-called “evangelists” might be paid freelancers.

the so-called “evangelists” might be paid freelancers (Bush, Michae, In Age of Friending, Consumers Trust Their Friends Less, Advertising Age, Feb. 2010)

Lots of noise background from marketers, sales persons, organizations etc., QleeQ is reducing that noise to nothing and distinguish the 

In its organic state—consumers recommending a brand based purely on their positive experiences with its product or services—word-of-mouth marketing shows a deep human instinct for sharing valuable information. But removed from its organic state, word-of-mouth marketing can exploit consumers.
Some companies hire people to recommend their brand without announcing their status as marketers. In 2002, for instance, Sony Ericsson placed fake touristsin New York City to ask passers-by to take their pictures with Sony’s T68i mobile phone and digital camera. The purpose of this initiative was to demonstrate the phone’s features in a more organic and less sales-oriented way. But the fake tourists never revealed their affiliation with Sony Ericsson.

for proper disclosure, The FTC recently revised its guidelines to include a clause obliging bloggers to disclose “the material connections they share with the seller of the product or service. ”Bloggers now have to announce their endorsements openly or pay a fine up to $11,000 per post for violating the new rule.
