.ME creators rewarded for "making the Internet personal."

For those webmasters, bloggers, and social networks that have taken advantage of .ME extensions, as opposed to traditional .COM addresses, you could find yourself “reaping the rewards” of innovation in upcoming weeks. As of January 4, 2014, .ME Registry personnel have announced “The .ME Loyalty Program” at the 2014 New Media Expo (NMX) n Las Vegas, Nevada. The loyalty program is a platform that connects all .ME users into one community and then rewards them with exciting perks and prizes within the community.

Users can begin collecting points by “checking [.ME] social medias, joining .ME contests, bringing friends to the website, sharing related #hashtags on Twitter or Instagram” ...and more! Once points are collected through social action, they may then be rewarded with exciting perks and prizes, “including T-shirts, domain name and hosting packages, gift card vouchers and much more.” The intent to drive more people to .ME domain extensions for personal and social content creation is the goal of this loyalty program. The .ME extension is becoming more popular in today’s “social society” and .ME registry is creating the opportunity for .ME creators to be rewarded for setting the standard in current web trends and domain destinations.

While a “youngin’” in comparison to .COM destinations, this five year old practice has been finding itself gaining momentum and rapidly gaining in web demand. Perhaps this is an attempt to combat the future release of multiple domain extensions that include professions, hobbies and topical interests (i.e. JohnSmith.LAWYER, Grocery.STORE, etc.). Nonetheless, .ME will continue to grow with demand, due to short address ability, “call to action potential” and the objective of direct social personalization. Currently, there are over 750,000 domain names under .ME control and more than 170 accredited registrars for them, including the popular GoDaddy.com.

The loyalty program was designed to be “clean and easy” while celebrating the .ME community. Users may sign up through traditional means or via Social Sign In (with Facebook, Twitter, etc.). They will then be able to participate in fun activities that allow them to collect points through the program, while saving points to redeem their rewards.

NMX attendees were given an additional incentive through the loyalty program’s grand announcement. They were encouraged to sign up with Facebook and collect points by sharing their ideals on the new program and including photos that they had taken at the .ME booth on Twitter and Instagram, further attaching the #domainME hashtag selected to commence the .ME Loyalty Program campaign.

“As longtime sponsors of NMX, we have developed a truly special relationship with our blogging community. We would like to invite everyone attending the conference to stop by booth number 607 to chat with us, pose for personalized photos and take home swag we’ve designed for the blogger on the go,” said Predrag Lesic, CEO of the .ME Registry. Many did and became the first of what will be many users participating in the .ME Loyalty Program and “making the Internet more personal!”
