The way that we see it, there are two distinct groups of users on trustedd: the consumers and the contributors.
We can split consumers further into two sections: the daily visitors who read content on the platform, seeking out general information they can apply to their lives, and decision-makers are the ones who are searching for solutions or potential partners.
The contributors, on the other hand, are the users who share their knowledge to generate content. These are experts, respected professionals, or even established businesses drawing on case studies.
Both groups exist in symbiosis with one another, but without the contributors, the platform ceases to exist in any meaningful sense of the word. Our focus is thus on incentivizing activity among the contributors.
Here is how we do that:
Step 1: Transparent reputation building
Every time a user contributes to trustedd, he or she can build their reputation in their field. These contributions can come in the form of sharing knowledge like case studies, technical details, analyses, experiences, updates, explanations, or e.g., opinion pieces.
They can also come in the form of curation of other contributors' content. You can vote if the information is trustworthy or not. If the latter is the case, you have to explain with constructive feedback about what is wrong. The key is that contributions relate to the contributor's niche, presenting him or her as an authority.
Contributing to trustedd, users earn trustedd points and skills, which add up to a trustedd score that reflects activity and effort to prove their expertise. Unlike other networking sites, where skills and knowledge are just words in a list, trustedd backs up credentials with a transparent point system.
The only other way for users to earn points on trustedd is inviting new users to the platform. There is a catch, though: users gain points based on the contributions their invitees make and lose points based on any negative invitee behavior.
Step 2: Generate high-quality leads automatically.
Using trustedd, contributors can generate high-quality leads with a minimum of effort.
Perhaps the most powerful incentive that we offer is direct integration of a user's services and products, cutting down on purchase cycle length, and amping up business growth speed and efficiency.
While contributions like curating and publishing posts are free for contributors, it will take a paid business membership to start displaying services and products directly in a profile.
Our platform is intuitive and easy to use, empowering users to improve their conversion rates while expending fewer resources – and benefiting from a transparent reputation a user build.
In the same way, a user can find posts trough topics, he or she can find services and products. Also, in the author box of a post, you will get direct links to your services and products. So if a user comes along a post, he will be able to see what you have to offer and this in the same trusted environment.
Step 3: Discover
As deeply as we emphasize the quality of our content on trustedd, the platform goes beyond discussion and commentary, fostering networking, and learning opportunities for our users.
Navigating the platform based on any topic, users can quickly discover posts, services, products, and other proven users that are relevant, honing in on the information and people most conducive to professional development.
That is not all, though. Based on the topics that users navigate, trustedd will suggest other topic combinations: for example, if a user researches the topic "fintech," the platform will suggest the, e.g., "fintech + AI" and other topic combinations. Due to this, you can dive into a topic as far as you want and find what you need, even when you are new to this topic.
trustedd is the smart way to start learning about new topics or expand on an already-respectable knowledge base.
Step by step, we are going to disrupt the business world at large, emphasizing the power of information every step of the way and simplifying painful processes through real information.
Brand growth, knowledge growth, network growth: all this and more is possible through trustedd.
As described in our "how we will launch guide", after the pre-launch phase, the platform will be open for everybody to consume the best information. It will be free to become a subscriber, where you can react, bookmark, comment, or follow other users.
If you want to become a contributor or a professional / business member, you will need to get an invite code. You can apply for an invite code by filling out this form.
