If you are really good at your “job”, OnYoMo’s latest credit system can even empower you with some extra pocket money to buy the upcoming 3G iPhone!
OnYoMo, an IIT Delhi incubated company, is India’s leading city search portal that provides city info on movies, restaurants, shopping etc. The service is available in leading Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Goa etc.
True to the essence of a web 2.0 web portal, OnYoMo thrives on the participation of its users. People are encouraged to share their experiences in their respective cities, review food joints, movies and the likes, and also rate others’ reviews, in their effort to make information easily accessible and as authentic as possible. What makes you fall in love with the portal is the huge database that they maintain. The portal provides not just a higher breadth and depth of information, but doea so in a highly interactive and intuitive way. Moreover, such a model is always a hit since it is everyone who profits out of such an endeavor.
In its constant effort of innovation, for the first time in India, OnYoMo comes up with a beautiful credit system to award good work. Known as Community Credits, this system increases the engagement level of the users and also enriches one’s experience. Community credits are reward points that a user can earn by making positive contributions to the community – like, writing reviews, voting reviews and also inviting friends
Okay, so what is the big deal about this credit system, you might ask. The beauty is, they are not just “credits”. OnYoMo offers its users to be able to “redeem” their credits in lieu of cash. They have priced each credit at Re.1 and you can buy movie or flight tickets, reserve hotel rooms, go online shopping and much more. For more on how to earn Community Credits on OnYoMo and how can you redeem the money, you can check out their official document.
Shailesh Mehta, co-founder of OnYoMo, said, “We are looking at rewarding people who can add value to the city. We would like users to get to know the city’s hidden treasures as well as utilities, like a restaurant round the corner or a hospital down the lane. A review, recommendations for all kinds of services and voting on city issues are essentially adding value for other users of the service. We are also looking at making the user interface more exciting.”
Now, here is the best part. OnYoMo has been generous enough to offer WATBlog members free 100 credits (that’s Rs 100 right away, dude!) for signing up. All you need to do is follow this link and sign up with the service. Something tells me that you are going to love the experience. And yeah, after you manage to become a millionaire on OnYoMo, do not forget to share your experience here and also remember to mention our name during television interviews
