  • HI,my name is Ivan Fuller,i launched a new website called votemyvid.com (vmv)this is a site with a new concept, vmv is a video contest driven website based in California, U.S.A.We spent approx 2 years designing and creating a site that would be better and much more fun for the public than the average video site where the public just view videos,with vmv once the public have uploaded there vodeo they are automatically entered into a contest,a contest where they vote for there favourite videos,the video with the most votes wins cash and prizes monthly,as we grow these will become weekly contests and the prices will increase also,we are also developing a paying membership.
    Vmv was launched in April 2011 as a test and moved rapidly to over 1 million monthly hits and over 1000 daily unique visitors,all this achieved with no advertising at all,so now we feel this site is proving it self to be succesful and is now ready for an advertsinig campaign which is what we are looking for the funds for.
    Vmv is in search of $250.000.00 for the advertsising and some administrtive expenses,we are confident we have the next big website underway,if vmv suits your criteria or if you are interested in more information please get hold of me anytime.
