Yehey!, a copycat of Yahoo!?
I know I’ve already heard about the website a few times in the past, but I didn’t pay any attention because of its name. Yehey!, when I first heard about it, I normally thought that it’s just another struggling website that rides on with Yahoo’s popularity. I was thinking that why should they not come up with an original name and made a name out of it? I mean, come on! We all know that ipod is very hot in the market because it’s the original. Though there are lots of less expensive products which imitated its features, most consumers still prefer the genuine and original one. And that’s what I thought of Yehey! before.
Honestly, my opinion really doesn’t change that much now. The only difference is that I had the opportunity of meeting the people behind this search engine company. I’ve learned new things during the short presentation held at La Maison and discovered how friendly their staffs are. I also think that their strategy of tapping bloggers to help them in their promotion campaign business is very practical, economical, and most of all brings learning and fun to most blogging enthusiasts.
Though this company is not that original(well, we don’t need to be original all the time to be successful), I think that they became one of the effective agents of internet revolution in the Philippines. As the country’s second most visited website(next to INQ7.net), Yehey! people could now proudly shout their company name. Yehey!
