Competitive advantage

We are clearly differentiated from competition with the highest volume and fastest mobile opinion and advice tool.  This has been accomplished because we built the tool to be social while targeting multiple categories.  Direct competition in the opinion arena comes from Fashism, Second Opinion, Ask a Stylist, and Gotryiton.  Gotryiton has been out the longest and was the first to secure VC funding in early November ‘10. 

We have the most stable and advanced mobile product and we are partnering with major publishers to scale distribution.  Our distribution strategy will deter larger competitors from entering the space and ensure that we remain a leader against known competition. Further, we will continue to rapidly innovate on our product ensuring that it is the easiest to use and the most ubiquitous (multi-platform) mobile tool. Most importantly, we have one of the most experienced teams in the web startup space. We’ve been in the digital development business for 9 years, have worked with over 30 Fortune 500s including Nike and Universal Studios, and management has worked together for over 6 years.  In short, we’ve built the technology and revenue model to scale.
