The internet has changed the way that we access information. But the way that we receive it hasnât really changed in years. Every day, millions of people spend countless hours scrolling through pages of generic search results and anonymous recommendations. We believe that there has to be a better way to access information in this day and age.
Thatâs why we created Vanywhere. Itâs a live skill-sharing platform that instantly connects people seeking and offering skills, so you can get personalized results tailored just to you. All interactions happen through live, 1-on-1 video, voice and chat or offline gigs for freelance projects. Now instead of reading content online, you can pay by the minute to talk face-to-face with a person who has the exact skills that you need. Itâs like FaceTiming with someone who can help you cook a meal, style an outfit, fix your smartphone, or more. Vanywhere has a created a new business model based on the VANY token and alternative revenue channels that allows us to provide peer-to-peer transactions with minimal commission.
Vanywhereâs vision is to be the worldâs first skill-sharing platform operating on blockchain technology.
In Q1 2017, Vanywhere was live in the App Store for extensive product testing. One of the pilots we ran was providing support for Apple products and services.
Every month, there are over 1M Google search requests for Apple tech support questions such as âhow to synch my iPhone?â We recruited Apple enthusiasts to be Vanywhere Skillers and launched an Apple support campaign, which generated 26% conversion from download to action with average call times lasting 4 Â½ minutes. During the course of the pilot, we became the largest live video provider of Apple tech support in the world.
Vanywhere is based on people with skills.
We call them Skillers. A Skiller doesnât necessarily have to be an expert or a professional, they just need to have a skill that theyâre really good at, and want to share with the world. Skillers set their own price per minute for live chats, or a project fee for offline gigs. Plus they can earn tips too.
Professional Skillers are trained professionals and freelancers who are experts in their fields. These could include accountants and copywriters, nutritionists and makeup artists, computer programmers and fitness trainers, among others. They are people who are currently using freelance marketplace apps, to generate income from their knowledge and skills.
Influencer Skillers are social media influencers with an army of loyal followers who look to them for guidance and advice in their field. Vanywhere offers them a unique opportunity for 1-on-1 engagement with their audience as an added value service that directly monetizes their followers on an individual basis. For micro-influencers (with 10K-100K followers), this revenue channel is particularly important, as they havenât yet reached the threshold where theyâre earning meaningful revenue for sponsorship deals.
Everyday Skillers are ordinary people with extraordinary skills. They could know everything about jazz music, be great at putting together IKEA furniture, or know all the best local restaurants in New York. These are people with skills that theyâre eager to share with anyone who wants to listen.
While everyone can apply to be a Skiller, not everyone will be accepted. After filling out a profile application, it is up to the Vanywhere community to audit, review and approve all Skillers. These community members will receive a rating based on the quality and quantity of Skillers who they approve. In exchange for their participation, community members will be rewarded with VANY tokens.
Weâve released our demo app on the iOS App Store for our community to experience the product. What does this mean for you? Youâre invited to test the Vanywhere app and engage with our online Skillers. You can also sign up to become a Skiller and offer your amazing abilities to users on the app.
The Vanywhere team has been working since 2015 to bring their unique vision to the world. They have already developed and tested a working platform that is designed to bring live, personalized solutions to people all over the world. On its own, the platform is already a game-changer, yet with the inclusion of blockchain technology it further disrupts the skill-sharing and freelance economies by creating the worldâs first peer-to-peer, skill-sharing ecosystem.
Vanywhereâs Advisory Team is made up of international leaders in the world of business, startups and blockchain technology.
