TC50: Sealtale offers a personalized way to declare brand loyalty

NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

The latest company to demo at today’s TechCrunch50 conference in San Francisco is Sealtale. There are people who love to tell everyone about the companies, products, and brands that they like. They’ll put stickers on laptops, pins on messengers bags, and so on. Sealtale brings this idea to the web, allowing users add badges to blogs and websites.

So let’s say you’re a fan of VentureBeat. You could find a VentureBeat badge on Sealtale and add it to your blog and social network profiles. If it doesn’t exist yet, you could build your own. Then, not only will people visiting your site see that you like VentureBeat, but you could also visit an RSS-reader type service to see posts related to VentureBeat. You would also be able to connect to other users with the VentureBeat badge. OK, so no one’s done that yet, but we can dream, can’t we?

Sealtale has launched in Korea and makes money on advertising.
