I just got this :
Everyone receiving this invitation is one of the thousands of people who showed interest in and support for our desire to provide a real and lasting online auction alternative.
As many of you know, we made just about every mistake possible during our first launch, and the original Wagglepop was closed just a week after its initial debut.
On a personal note, I cannot express enough how deeply saddened I was at that time by our inability to provide what so many of you had supported, and what we had promised. The many supportive emails we received subsequent to our closing served not only to punctuate our belief that an online auction alternative was needed, but that our resolve to accomplish such a task needed to be stronger and more dedicated.
Ultimately, as founder of Wagglepop, I accept all responsibility for the failure of our initial attempt. I also offer my sincerest apology to all who supported us, promoted us, and believed in us. Not a single day has gone by since that I have not worked to honor your faith in the idea of Wagglepop, and to bring a new version to market that is everything you expect and deserve.
This invitation and the new version of Wagglepop are the fulfillment of that promise from a little over one year ago.
We are confident we have made all of the adjustments necessary to provide a viable alternative marketplace by consulting and contracting with industry experts in both the hardware and software departments, and feel confident that we have created a site that is not only viable, but offers some exciting and innovative features not found anywhere else.
Features like the Red Carpet Customer Program, Buy More Now, DynamicDiscounts, and Wagglepop Stores featuring BusinessBuilder are just a few of the features or ideas that we think can help change the ways in which buyers and sellers trade, and build relationships.
We think you'll find Wagglepop to be familiar in the ways that you've come to like and expect, yet fresh and exciting in the ways that count most.
The new Wagglepop is a 100% trust-based community, and requires no financial information to participate as a seller or buyer.
We would be honored if you would visit us at www.wagglepop.com to learn more about Wagglepop, and further honored to have you as a member.
Wagglepop is for everyone who believed, and believes still, that it is possible to take a stand, and make a difference.
Together, we can change everything.
