California Sold for $53,000
A worldwide land grab is underway as people rush to purchase states
and cities at Weblo.com, a first-of-its-kind virtual duplicate
of the world based on real properties, cities, states and Internet
domains. Since its Sept. 26 launch, Weblo.com has sparked a virtual
real estate boom.
California sold for $53,000 USD, New York State sold for $18,433
and the Canadian province of Ontario sold for $16,900.
Major cites and properties around the world have sold and resold.
The virtual mayor of Washington D.C. sold his city for a 300 percent
profit. The virtual Empire State Building, originally purchased
for one dollar, recently sold for $250. Members flip virtual properties
for profit just like in the real world.
“It’s like Monopoly on steroids. Every property, city
and state from the real world is for sale at Weblo.com,”
says Rocky Mirza, CEO and co-founder of Weblo.com. “This
is social networking with commerce, where members finally get
paid for their popularity. Before Weblo.com only website founders
and shareholders profited.”
Members attract traffic to their Weblo.com websites with compelling
content including photo galleries, forums, polls and videos. Members
profit from advertising revenue generated from their sites. City,
State and airport owners earn a percentage of all transactions
within their territories.
Five levels of membership define user roles, determine discounts
on purchases and influence the amount of money one can earn. Basic
memberships are free and include a free Weblo Celebrity Fan Site.
These Fan Sites can be filled with interesting content about your
favorite celebrity, your best friend or even your dog. Bronze,
Silver, Gold and VIP levels range in cost from $4.95 to $29.95
per month. Basic Members earn 10% of revenues generated by clicks
on Weblo.com supplied ads on their pages. The range increases
10% per membership level. VIP members earn 50% of revenues.
Weblo.com is backed by Internet and social networking visionaries
including Richard Rosenblatt the co-founder, chairman and CEO
of Demand Media and the former Chairman of MySpace.com and CEO
of parent company Intermix; Fred Harman, the managing partner
of Oak Investment; Matt Hill, the chairman and founder of eForce
Media; and William Woodward, the managing director and founder
of Anthem Venture Partners.
