San Francisco, CA — Boutique Agency, Longbow.net Leads Campaign to Launch PlanetShifter, an Innovative Green Network.
Longbow Strategic Group (Longbow.net), the big picture marketing communications firm, today announced that it has been selected by PlanetShifter.com to spearhead the promotion of its online “Innovation Network”.
PlanetShifter.com is a collaboration to work network. It’s a think tank, a virtual water cooler meet-up, and a place to share and refine ideas about sustainability. The community will be driven by artists, musicians, writers and inventors. Rather than launch the new site, its creator and members want to ‘land’ it.
The site is centered on the concept of a satellite that represents the distinct aspects of the community. Observing from orbit, it reveals global issues, invites creative collaboration, and broadcasts solutions. The Rotator is based on Native American dream catchers as it provides hope and a vehicle for positive change.
“We’re not a Facebook or MySpace, but an ‘innovation network,” executive producer and founder Willi Paul relates. PlanetShifter.com challenges members to go beyond the upload soap opera of social networks, to facilitate collaboration and build the next ‘world after oil’, a new green ethic beyond corporate greed and failed world governments.
What Can You Do in PlanetShifter.com?
At PlanetShifter.com, you can upload and find green and innovative ideas, companies and people. You can show off your work, test an idea, start a discussion, and seek-out partners for projects and start-ups. And you can learn about, promote and develop new sustainable products and services. Members can take part in an art happening, research deep into the site’s data base and sit in on the Event Circle, the bi-weekly presenters forum.
By gathering so many creative people, challenged about how to create a greener planet, the innovation network hopes to accelerate the adoption of better ways of managing our world. The community hopes to shift the planet’s course, from self destruction to a sustainable tomorrow.
“PlanetShifter.com has created a place on the web where creative thinkers and doers can collaborate and address big picture issues. Eric Needle, Longbow’s front man relates. By bringing together inventors, artists, writers, and musicians, the brand creates a different kind of social network based on awareness and action. PlanetShifter.com is more than a resume-blaster or place to play games with your 500 best friends; it’s a place where thinkers can turn ideas into action.”
