LOS ANGELES, March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The messaging platform TipTalk today announced its launch, providing a one-of-a-kind platform for users to directly connect with their favorite experts, influencers and stars via text, photo and video. The company is the first to introduce a platform offering a channel for influencers to connect with their fans on a one-on-one basis, allowing influencers to monetize their time and knowledge as a new revenue stream or on behalf of charity.
With so much noise coming in through social media, TipTalk provides a marketplace for fans to connect with some of the hardest-to-reach people in the world for a personal, authentic experience. TipTalk boasts influencers and stars including Lilly Ghalichi (former Shahs of Sunset star, entrepreneur and beauty blogger), Jenna Ushkowitz (actress on Glee), Tony Gonzalez (NFL legend and analyst), Jay Glazer (NFL insider for FOX Sports) and Stratton Sclavos (former Forbes Top 50 CEOs, and Lead Investor in TipTalk), across a variety of categories from fashion and beauty to entertainment, sports, eSports and business.
"TipTalk was founded with the mission of creating an authentic community for users that desire one-on-one access to influencers, while allowing influencers to monetize their time and knowledge," says Zach Melamed, CTO and co-founder of TipTalk. "Whether our users engage for expert advice or just for fun, we hope that by opening up this channel to the hardest-to-reach people in the world we can help induce meaningful connections, while at the same time drive positive change through the causes our influencers represent."
Individuals can download TipTalk to discover and gain access to today's top influencers. Influencers set their own price for responding to fans, who can ask for expert advice, request personal photos or video messages or just chat for fun. Fans can purchase credits and get a response within 48 hours or their credits are returned. Messages, photos and videos can all be saved and shared from users' personal devices.
