LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bedloo, a new fast-growing two-choice voting platform, allows fans to vote for Lebron James' Cavs jersey number and see voting results instantly. James turned to social media last week to help him choose which number he'll wear in his return to the Cavs. Bedloo, which just passed 4 million voters, has created the question Which Number Should I Wear? for Lebron's fans to vote on the No. 6 or 23 jersey for his Cleveland return. Based in Sherman Oaks, CA, Bedloo allows users to compare two photos, videos or music tracks for a side-by-side A/B comparison and share it in their social media stream including Facebook, Twitter and Google+. The user's followers can vote A or B and all results are tallied in real time and displayed in either votes or percentages to help the user make a final decision. The Bedloo question can be easily embedded onto any website, post or blog and shared virally through all major social media platforms. Last Friday, James wrote "6 or 23...." on his Twitter account and posted photos on Instagram of him wearing No. 6 and No. 23 Cleveland Cavs jerseys. You can go to Bedloo at http://bedloo.com/b/FnF to vote on Lebron's Cavs jersey number.
James wore No. 6 during his four seasons with Miami and also on the U.S. Olympic team. He used No. 23 in high school and during seven seasons in Cleveland and has had the top-selling jersey in the NBA six times during his career. Bedloo, selected in February as a Top 100 Tech Start-Up at San Francisco's Launch Festival, has seen a serious spike in activity on the app since posting the Lebron jersey two-choice question on the platform.
"I wore my Bedloo T-shirt to a few NBA Summer League games last week in Vegas and fans kept asking me if we were going to officially post the Lebron jersey question on our app so we finally did and it's been electric," says Daron Destiny, CEO and co-founder of Bedloo. "As a basketball fan and businessman, I am proud of Lebron's management team including agent Rich Paul, Maverick Carter and all those guys who are instrumental in Lebron's decision to bring it all back to Cleveland. This is a great story for the NBA and sports in general and now a tech start-up is helping King James pick his jersey number. You gotta love it." James recently signed a two-year, $42.1 million contract with the Cavs.
Launched in August of 2013, Bedloo gained early traction in the music industry as everyone from The X-Factor's contestant Jeff Gutt to Atlanta's underground rap trio, Migos, used the app to allow fans to vote on numerous decisions like concert clothing, song selections, album artwork, etc. Currently, the Bedloo app is featured prominently in the new DJ Khaled music video featuring Jay-Z & Rick Ross titled "They Don't Love You No More". In the video, DJ Khaled uses the Bedloo app to vote on which luxury car he should drive for the evening, Mercedes or Bentley? Destiny added, "We made our immediate traction in the music industry and now our users are generating more and more sports content as well." Bedloo is fully integrated with YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
