Who are you?
Rawporter is a free camera app for iOS and Android that helps everyday people earn a little extra money for shooting and sharing videos and photos. MANAGEMENT TEAM Kevin Davis, CEO: Seasoned Business Development Director and MBA Rob Gaige, COO: Experienced Consumer Product Marketing Executive and MBA Michael Robinson, CTO: Accomplished Project Manager, Information Architect and MIS
WHAT Do You Do?
Our free camera app for iOS and Android turns everyday people into an army of cameras on-location and on-demand so that anyone who needs affordable video or photo content can instantly get it. In exchange for their videos and photos, our Rawporters get the cash and credit they deserve for simply putting their smartphones to work. Rawporter is combining the efficiency of crowdsourcing, the power of micro earning and the passion for photography to create the first legitimate interactive marketplace for user generated content.
WHY Are You Doing This?
There’s a huge gap in the marketplace. Demand for User Generated Content has never been higher and there is no other efficient way to connect everyday people with the media outlets, large and small, that are interested in their videos and photos. UGC has become widely accepted but still has value, yet people are giving it away for free. We’re attempting to create the first legitimate interactive UGC marketplace so that contributors get the reward and recognition they deserve. At the same time, media partners have access to affordable and credible content they might have otherwise gone without. Now anyone, anywhere can buy existing stock content or request custom videos and photos and get them instantly.
We have 4 platforms currently in beta (iOS, Android, Mobile Web and Rawporter.com) and we’re collecting as much user feedback as possible to build a polished product. We have some interesting social media enhancements planned that will be very interesting. Wouldn’t it be nice to earn extra income for the photos and videos you are already sharing with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter? More on that to come!
