THE MODEL: An online platform for users to find and book Journalists from all over the world. Currently the platform has over 1,500 journalists from 150 countries.
STARTUP: Paydesk(British startup)
WHAT I LIKE
Core Idea – An on demand platform for booking journalists. Users can also search for reporters, journalists, photographers, studio presenters, interviewers etc. using the platform.
Easy to Use – Users can discover journalists by browsing through profiles. Once they find one, they can send a request through the platform. The platform contacts the journalist on behalf of the user.
End to End Solution– The user can use the platform to manage the entire workflow and also pay once the job is complete. Payment is secure, even to far flung locations.
Market Size – The service is basically for businesses. The size of the market is a concern.
