Empower Network has opened it's doors to customers again today after a short hiatus anticipating the launch of their new $3.2m blogging platform, the Blog Beast. David Wood posted 3 hours into the open that they have been signing up 250 customers per hour on average in that time.
Blog Beast, in which Empower Network invested $3 million and one year to develop, offers a multitude of features not yet seen among the current generation of blog software. Empower Network's new system allows users to maintain multiple blogs among multiple domains from one account and one login.
It is faster, easier to use and a better design than the original version, as well as other blogging platforms, say company officials.
One of the highlights of Blog Beast is its mobile app, which syncs the computer and smartphone blogging systems in new ways. In the past, other blog platforms have released mobile apps that were watered down and not as feature-rich. Blog Beast will truly bring the same experience users enjoy on the Web to their mobiles.
WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and other popular blog platforms don't offer some of the key features and benefits users find with Blog Beast.
During the pre-launch, Empower Network has been releasing a series of high-production videos depicting comic skits and video shorts. This weekend regional events are being hosted in Washington D.C. and Dallas, Texas – anticipating 2,000 attendees at each event – ending the regionals in Orlando, Florida next week.
