INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2014) - 12ish, an online advice marketplace, today announces the launch of its interactive, sharing economy website. Through the site's platform anyone can receive advice on a particular subject by buying and scheduling someone's time in 12 minute increments.
"12vers," the site's name for those who host calls, are able to create topics around a variety of subjects, ranging from how to track and measure social media to a general vent session. Once a 12ver sets their schedule and price, they can begin earning money for their time. Currently 12vers are hosting over 200 bookable topics on a myriad of subjects. For consumers, 12ish encourages self-improvement, entrepreneurship or general knowledge gain in just minutes a day by learning from people who are not so easily accessible otherwise.
"After determining that 12 minutes is the ideal time to have a meaningful conversation with someone, the idea for an information sharing website was born," said 12ish CEO and co-founder, Colin Mathews. "We founded 12ish after realizing there should be a way for people to share knowledge at a deeper level than social media affords."
Customers can evaluate a person's credibility through the rating and review system provided by 12ish, or by following reference links on the 12ver's page to sites like LinkedIn. Additionally, 12vers with verified Twitter accounts will display a badge to further show their legitimacy. They are also encouraged to add a 12ish widget to their own website to alert others to their 12ver status and book their time.
To provide privacy, the 12ish system automatically connects both parties via phone by calling each number at the scheduled time, keeping personal phone numbers anonymous. The team has also worked to make sure no one's time is taken advantage of by automatically ending the call on both ends after the allotted time and only charges the user if the call is connected.
