Vobok is the reimagination of a big idea. Vobok is a micro-podcasting platform which allows you to create digital content around voice-enabled experiencess in a new 30 second format. Vobok's business model is similar to other new media platform companies such as Twitter where we will be able to monetize the commercial content created on Vobok by brands, media companies and enterprises.
