We caught up with the nice people over at Web Pro News to chat with co-founders John and Eric.  Check it out below!

Live from SXSW14 Mar

With a couple of days under our belt now, SXSWi is in full swing. Panels are packed with programming and the parties are pumping.  Around the convention center, people are finding free trials to review’d by zapping the QR tag with their phones.

We’ve been having a lot of conversations with people about review’d and a few themes are starting to emerge.

  • They like it simple. And so do we.  review’d is built from a focused perspective of providing users with powerful Twitter sentiment data that doesn’t overwhelm users with too much data. Sentiment can be a complicated topic, but it doesn’t have to be.
  • They like it inexpensive. We’re aware of other social media metrics and analysis services that are out there. They’re typically very expensive and are bogged down with features. You can start using review’d for free and give it a full test for 30 days with no strings attached.
  • They like it on their phones. Handheld use is ubiquitous at SXSW and it’s expressive of the daily lives that attendees here live. We’re proud to say that review’d was designed to work well on devices like the iPhone from day 1. Give it a try.

We just went to a great core conversation on “how social media can destroy your business model.”  It was led by Kami Huyse and Anjuan Simmons, who did a nice job sharing some case studies and inciting dialogue about the topic.  Very quickly the talk turned to ROI and metrics with examples such as how Network Solutions’ @shashib was able to capitalize on discontent from GoDaddy customers by offering a coupon code during backlash from GoDaddy’s ad.  Twitter sentiment was a big part of their success in showing true results.

For additional coverage of the core conversation here in Austin, visit the hashtag #sxswdestroy before it fades away.

If you’re at SXSW and would like to meet up to talk more about Twitter sentiment analytics, we’d love to do so. DM us @reviewd or get in touch with @ericfleming or @docjohng.

Keep an eye out for QR codes at SXSW11 Mar

We’re on the ground in Austin, registered, and picked up our swag bag.  We also picked up some sweet new QR code stickers, courtesy of our good friends over at Parcode.

If you see a review’d sticker hanging around the Austin Convention Center, zap it with your phone to find something free!

New to QR zapping action? On the iPhone, we use QuickMark, SXSW is recommending i-nigma.


Quick links for a great SXSW festival10 Mar

SXSW can be daunting, even if you’ve been in the past. There’s a schedule book that could accidentally kill a small animal, a maze of an expo center, and so many parties meetings to tend to that it can stress you out a bit.

Well, we’re here to say: stress not. The interesting mix of designers, web geeks, marketers, and creatives will help you out. Just ask if your tubes get clogged.

To easy your worries in advance, we started a collection of helpful links.  Here they are:

  • my.sxsw – the official site of SXSW helps you get set up with your badge photo, connect with other SXSWers, and set up your personal schedule of events. The new iPhone app this year enables you to access it right in that shiny bit in your hand [assuming AT&T doesn't suck this year]
  •’s where to eat Google Map mash-up – Priorities folks; you gotta eat at some point.
  • The unofficial events on upcoming – Who said the most important business always gets done over a beverage…or three?
  • Parties on Plancast – Someone started this up to organize some socialization that involves more than staring at a computer screen displaying Facebook.
  • QuickMark – We’re predicting that QR 2D barcode tech is going to take off more than ever this year at SXSW. We’ve had good luck with QuickMark and recommend you download and give it a try in preparation for Austin.

Special review’d recommended BBQ: Iron Works (southeast corner of the convention center).

We’ll be adding to this post as we think of more important info to share. When in doubt; don’t stress, just ask someone for help if you need it.

Oh, and if you’re interested in Twitter sentiment analytics, DM us @reviewd to meet up and we’ll hook you up with a free Basic account for 30 days.

Find us at SXSW; get a FREE beta account.08 Mar

Right around this time every year, a few thousand peoples’ salivatory glands uncontrollably start to get excited.  They know what’s about to happen.  It’s good old fashioned Texas BBQ time at SXSW in Austin.

We’re pleased to say that review’d co-founders John and Eric will be there in full force helping to get this awesome Twitter sentiment analytics up off the ground.  That’s right, at SXSW 2010 (the interactive part), we’ll be attending the usual conferences, strolling our share of 6th Street and handing out invites for a free Basic account for 30 days to fortunate trade show goers.

So yeah, I guess you could call that a launch.  We’re excited about it and can’t wait to share some of the latest enhancements to review’d with you.

It’s been a little while since we’ve been blogging.  So here’s a quick update to what’s been going on:

  • review’d llc is official! That’s right, we’re registered up as a fancy pants limited liability corporation.
  • Thank you pre-betas. A huge thanks to the handful of those who helped us out with a painful early pre-beta review of review’d – esp @benkunz and @stephfrancoeur. We have incorporated a significant amount of your feedback into the latest instance of the system.
  • PayPal is on its way. We’re pretty close to PayPal integration, which will make signing up and using review’d easier than slatering BBQ sauce on your friend’s face at SXSW.

There’s a lot of other behind-the-scenes work too. Calculations, algoritms, etc.. we’ll keep it to the sexy stuff.

So with that, we hope to see you at SXSW.  DM us @reviewd or @ericfleming to meet up.  We have lots of free invites to give away!
