New York, October xx, 2017 — Vanywhere announces the upcoming launch of its skill-sharing platform, that enables anyone with a marketable skill to capitalize on their knowledge and talent, by sharing their expertise with those who need them. Users on Vanywhere can experience live personalized advice for a variety of topics ranging from live fashion styling tips, to understanding cryptocurrencies, or even receiving suggestions for the best restaurants in a city that you might be visiting. All interactions happen through live, 1-on-1 video, voice or chat.
The holidays are coming up, which means family dinners, lots of shopping, and reunions with people you haven’t seen in a year, who for whatever reason, have developed very high expectations of you. The holiday season is a time to impress! Vanywhere is the platform that will either enable you to use your unique talent to get some extra cash in time for gift season, or will teach you how to make the best pumpkin pie your Aunt Judy has ever had. Vanywhere is the ultimate pairing app between “Skillers”, those who are looking to share their expertise, and those who are looking for personalized advice. Since the app is backed by blockchain technology, there is no middle man acting as an intermediary between the “Skiller” and the user. The decentralized nature of the platform creates a “knowledge industry,” in which Skillers have direct control over their earnings on the platform. The company will issue its VANY token in January 2018.
The internet has significantly changed the way we access information. Imagine having to go the library and to actually look up facts by hand, rather than just accessing Wikipedia. The way in which we receive information, however, hasn’t really changed, as each day people all over the world spend countless hours scrolling through generic search results from anonymous recommendations. Rather than asking yourself if that blog post about the best restaurants in Lisbon was actually written by a local, Vanywhere has created a way to actually speak directly to a local.
Vanywhere is building a reliable reputation system on blockchain which can’t be tampered with. Unlike other platforms where users can buy ratings, identities, and even existing accounts, Vanywhere’s reputation system is verifiable, trustworthy and transparent, providing a powerful tool for both users and skillers. Reputation scores can also be used beyond the Vanywhere community to vouch for one’s professional skills, competency, trust, and more.
In Q1 2017, Vanywhere was live on the App Store for testing. One notable case study from the testing focused on providing support for Apple products and services, during which Vanywhere recruited Apple enthusiasts to be Vanywhere “Skillers”. The campaign generated 26% conversion from download to action, and during the course of the pilot, Vanywhere became the largest live video provider of Apple tech support in the world; people received live video advice on their “Apple issues”, posing common questions such as ‘how to sync my email to my iPhone’, and ‘how to work with iCloud’.
Vanywhere is an easy to use platform that works in 5 easy steps:
- Find a Skiller who meets your needs
- Choose how to connect (video, voice, chat)
- Get instant, personalized advice, answers, and solutions
- Seamlessly transfer VANY tokens for payment (Skillers set their own price per minute which is displayed in both USD and VANY tokens in their profile)
- Leave a review and rate your skiller.
From the start, the Vanywhere team has been methodically building their brand. With over 20 years of experience in digital marketing, they understand the importance of branding, content creation and the user experience – something which helps to distinguish them in the marketplace – particularly among other blockchain-based companies where branding and appearance are given little attention.
“Our vision is to be the world’s first skill-sharing platform operating on blockchain technology,” said Rami Shechter, CEO and Founder of Vanywhere, “We believe that the way people all over the world receive information is very outdated and time consuming. Vanywhere solves this problem by instantly connecting those who need help with a specific task with those who are experts in the field.”
Vanywhere is 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. It’s like FaceTiming with someone who can help you cook a meal, style an outfit, fix your smartphone, or more. Because Vanywhere has a created a new business model based on the VANY token and alternative revenue channels, where its users have direct control over their earnings.
