  • Why are the Pros interested in CatchMyWorld's platform?

    First and foremost, we highly respect our user privacy. When developing CatchMyWorld, we had one focus: making advertising more relevant and more user-focused than any other social platforms today. If you visited other social platforms, you probably experienced picture or video ads that were thrown at you without any consideration of your own interests, needs or what you really want to see. CatchMyWorld developed a user-oriented social eCommerce framework that Pros on our site follow.
    The win-win is that 1. Users are targeted by Pros only if they want to be and with respect to their personal interests and 2. Pros are closer to the users that want to be informed about their products by knowing their profile characteristics so 3. Pros can target each user more accurately, which increases the chance of future purchases by CatchMyWorld's users that may also be their current or future consumers/customers.
  • How can I become a "Catcher" of a Pro and be aware of the Pro's news, sale events, etc.?

    The best way to be informed in real time of a Pro's news is to become a "Catcher" of this Pro: How? Access the Home Profile of the Pro you like and click on the button "Catch'It". By clicking on "Catch'It", you become a Catcher of the Pro and you can now access to all information, products, special sales, videos or LIVE streamed events of this Pro right here on catchmyworld.com
  • Why should I fill my "ProCatch" Interests on my profile when I have "Catch'It" a Pro?

    Each Pro follows the same profile framework. We have built this framework to serve our users with the most interactive eCommerce approach so CatchMyWorld is completely user-oriented for advertising. We want the Pros to ONLY deliver what is relevant to you. When you fill information concerning your ProCatch interests on your Home profile, you define what you are interested in regarding products, apparels and others. Specific filters have been developed: when you visit one of your ProCatch, the pages you see are completely customized to match your own interests: it means that only products, apparels, etc. that suit you the best will be showcased on each of your ProCatch's pages. Your ProCatch will then add and show you products (in the section "E-Shop") that only match your interests. In order to add to the interactive experience, you will be automatically notified when one of your ProCatch add a product that may interest you on their page.
