We all love influencers and creators.
Their content, passion and involvement changes and better our lives.
Wether it's fitness, business, relationships. We trust their opinion. We spend time with them, we feel with them. They're like friends. Sort of.
Let's admit it, receiving a personalized answer or comment from our favorite influencer is a rare pleasure that always make our day.
We value them, and we know that their input, competences and skills might be valuable to a particular situation that we're living.
The content we enjoy on a daily basis is mostly free, and we're thankful for that.
Influencers and creators are strong because of our support and they're thankful for that too.
Unfortunately, they often struggle to make a living with their content and passion, only a few top tier channels do.
Feeling that special bond, we wanted to take things a step further and help expand that connection in a good-spirited way :
"Askbox Q&A's" should be perks, not another way to monetize content that is otherwise free.
Overmonetization threatens that special, almost sacred bond.
That's why Askbox Q&A's should be personal, unique and help make both influencers and fans connect in a way that is and profitable for both. Tips for tips.
We're hoping you'll read between these lines and help create a great experience for everyone.
