A new concept in social networking was unveiled on Friday in the United Kingdom as Nigerian entrepreneur, Yinka Olugbodi, unveiled Teamspirit, the first global team-oriented social network services. Present during the launch at Google Campus were business leaders, venture capital investors, ICT professionals and businessmen.
Olugbodi revealed that social network just became social with Teamspirit, as it provides avenue for people with diverse backgrounds to connect and interact through the team-based platform.
Teamspirit is a new social networking site with a global appeal, that seeks to differentiate its offerings from others. It evolved from a strong resolve to build a brand that promotes the uniqueness of a team. Its overall relevance is that it is a platform where individuals can team up with others under the same teams.
Olugbodi further added that Teamspirit is dynamic, vibrant and refreshing in its outlook as it seeks to align with the aspirations and desires of the target audience. Its personality is fun and it seeks to engage its audience in a unique way.
Teamspirit is the social platform where an individual connects to his teams across the globe. It is a collection of all teams in one platform. It is also based on the principle that everyone belongs to a team. The site, www.teamspiritlive.com, illustrates an innovative and refreshing approach to social networking.
Olugbodi asserted further that a significant edge for Teamspirit was that it was the first solely and global-oriented team networking site and this clearly positioned it as the foremost team-networking site.
The logo of the brand encapsulates all it stands for and it communicates succinctly the brand essence. The logo depicts teamwork and teaming. It shows two individuals working in a powerful picture in divisive and chaotic world.
This underscores the power behind the strength of the team coming together. This one thread holds the brand as it resonates among the target audience.
According to Olugbodi, “It is imperative to state that the brand is coming from Africa and projecting its unique essence to the global world. Teamspirit is a potent factor to project the ingenuity of Nigerians to develop laudable ideas that stand the test of time. It is one that will reshape the image of the country and redefine the black pedigree.”
The social networking site is equally an avenue to build an African Silicon Valley through networks or individuals inviting teammates to join the site. This would go a long way to achieve substance and build a global interactive platform for teams. The new social networking site has features for the target audience, which include team-oriented, individual-to-team, high quality web, mobile and interactive design, free joining and restricted joining, online sales and customers facilities chat, inbox and home facilities, photo and video sharing as well as sophisticated security features.
The Teamspirit brand is friendly, engaging and interactive as teammates can connect globally and interact on matters of mutual interest and benefit. The site is designed to grow through building up the users’ base through joining and also building different e-business, marketing, advertising and online sales platforms.
