T I Z Z Y
What's the big idea?
Replace indecision with T I Z Z Y.
A Social Polling app that will allow friends to get opinions from those they care about.
Users will post two photos side-by-side to solve questions such as which team will win the championship, which dress for prom, or which super-villain is most powerful. Friends will swipe between the two photos and cast their one-tap vote.
By sending “sponsored Tizzies”, businesses will ask supporters to help make company decisions; such as Panera asking which Summer Salad should be featured on the menu.
Describe the nearest player in your field.
Imagoo is an incentivized social polling app centered around picture challenges and points. Imagoo encourages people to vote to earn items such as a $10 iTunes gift card in exchange for 18,000 votes. Imagoo may be downloaded on iPhone or Android for free.
How are you different from that player?
T I Z Z Y will create a community of friends helping friends make decisions and provide feedback; not users voting on users to simply earn free stuff. T I Z Z Y will have one clear-and-simple polling format, where Imagoo has three types of polls.
How does this idea scale into a big business?
With effective marketing and a well-working app, the T I Z Z Y user base will grow exponentially, attracting larger companies to send sponsored Tizzies at $0.05 an interaction. There are also avenues in education or document-based polling websites T I Z Z Y could evolve to.
Why are you the one to run with this idea?
The T I Z Z Y App has been kickstarted by two inspired Hope College students. With three pre-existing companies of their own, Macall Smith and Jessica Granger have real-life Business, Design, and Tech experience. The T I Z Z Y Team is always looking to learn, readjust, and sprint ahead!
What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?
The development for T I Z Z Y has been funded and the app will be released in October. The $5,000 experiment will go towards one of two paths; marketing or fixing bugs and adding additional features after launch. Whichever the team sees more important post-launch.
