  2. 2. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE :: 1/14/09 NETPODS PO Box 951 Birmingham, MI 48012 www.netpods.com www.capitalbug.com www.networkpods.com CONTACT: Chris Lakatos 248-330-0437 or chrislakatos@gmail.com NetworkPODS Knows Business Networking NETPODS is the flagship company that has launched one resource blog (CapitalBUG.com) focused on obtaining investment capital and another (NetworkPODS.com) which targets the business to business networking niche in the US. After almost two years, NetworkPODS has re-launched this week with a new audience, mission and scope in mind. “We had some misfortunes in 2008 with a vendor that did not produce our new NETPODS web platform,” states Chris Lakatos, founding partner of NETPODS. “It put us a year behind, but now we’ve dusted ourselves off and found a way to turn the adverse situation into an opportunity.” NetworkPODS.com is a wealth of information on everything business networking. This includes a multi (US) regional calendar of events, articles on best practices and featured content on various programs and initiatives. Details on regional business networking groups and online resources are soon to follow this initial launch. The site was modeled after the ‘Pod’ concept NETPODS introduced to the Metro-Detroit area in 2005. “A Pod was never quite understood. People were confused by this new term,” shares Lakatos. “It is actually simple; relevant information condensed into one space online. You have a topic of interest, NETPODS will hyper-focus and condense all sorts of information into one easy-to-understand channel.” NETPODS has a history of hosting events and initiatives that infuse new life into the Metro-Detroit economy. This philosophy of service to the business community continues with CapitalBUG and NetworkPODS. NetworkPODS creates a space online that will help business professionals interested in networking across all industries and geographic region. The goal has always been and continues to be that of introducing people to one another in an effort to encourage new opportunities for growth.
  3. 3. NetworkPODS.com officially launched January 12, 2009, with portions of the site still under construction. Lakatos wanted to push the information to the public in stages since every day there are ample business opportunities brewing throughout the US.

  5. 5. NETWORK PODS FOR JANUARY 2006 RELEASE CONTACT: CHRIS LAKATOS NETWORK PODS CHRIS@NETWORKPODS.COM NETWORK PODS OFFERS NEXT-GENERATION NETWORKING THROUGH ONLINE GROUPS, CONFERENCING & MEETINGS USING VOIP TECHNOLOGY Web Business Community uses newest technology to update business networking TROY, MI – In business it’s all about “who you know and who knows you”. For a business to increase sales it must have a dynamic, aggressive marketing plan and a vision for the future. Network Pods (www.networkpods.com) introduces the world to one another by offering online networking groups, an online speakers bureau, and online conferencing and meetings using Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) technology. A Network “Pod” is a group of business professionals who work to grow more business together than each would have achieved alone in their individual promotional efforts. Business professionals may join a networking pod or start one of their own as a Pod Captain. Pod Captains have the ability to create and grow their own site filled with interactive promotional tools specifically designed to attract new members and visitors. Each member can develop a custom profile page acting as an interactive brochure online that tells their pod team and visitors about his/her business. There are four membership levels from which to choose, ranging in price from $25 to $85 per month. Every pod member has the ability to highlight their business through PDF uploads and MP3s, with top-level membership touting a customized FLASH commercial. Online discussions and events are archived as podcasts and can be downloaded to iPods for later listening. “The concept of networking groups isn’t new. We’ve just taken it a giant step forward using the latest technology available and added the convenience of being online,” says Chris Lakatos, owner and developer of Network Pods. “Business owners who join or start a pod can get the networking benefits similar to that of a chamber of commerce or networking group. Since we are online, networking can be 24/7; whenever it’s convenient for the pod member. Business leaders can host online seminars or events from the comfort of their laptop.” -more-
  6. 6. NETWORK POPDS/page two “The purpose of a pod is to capture the attention of prospective customers, obtain new business and maintain a solid customer base,” adds Lakatos. “Industry leaders know to focus their time and resources in a way that maximizes their promotional networking. Network Pods provides an effective and innovative web based software that is easy to use and could potentially increase a pod member’s prospective client base 100-fold or more.” A graduate of Baker College, Chris Lakatos has business experience ranging from Corporate America to her own retail gift basket operation and wellness company. The idea for Network Pods came to her in early 2005 while trying to market products for her wellness company and network professionals from all walks of life. Network Pods is currently seeking members for its existing Pods and Pod Captains dedicated to growing their own Pods.
