The challenge for both analysts and investors is real - How do they find each other?
TIMM aims to solve that dilemma, providing the tools for analysts to help make them more accessible and effective for those who would be delighted to gain from their expertise.
In our introductory post, we identified the problem many of us face in attempting to find the best resources to assist us in our trading and investing. Today we want to share about a few tools we thought might be ideal to make this all happen.
TIMM will host two levels of blogs for analysts to offer their insights. Investors can find a free version, built on the Steem blockchain, where analysts can provide whatever insight they think may be helpful.
Of course, the Steem blogs will be readily accessible to anyone, posting on both TIMM.Ninja and Steemit, as well as any other site that hosts Steem content. There will be an option to subscribe to blogs, receiving entries either as excerpts or newsletters. Anyone will be able to log into their Steem account on TIMM and submit content, upvote articles and comment just like you do on any other Steem blockchain interface.
The second blog will be hosted only on TIMM, providing premium content for those who subscribe to a particular analyst’s services. These will tie in with premium newsletter services and alerts provided by the analyst
By providing a centralized location for analysts to offer their services on the Steem blockchain, TIMM offers a unique opportunity to attract investors and traders to their content. Of course, providing exposure on various Steem based sites as well as potential Steem and SBD from upvotes is a great bonus as well. Any of these articles that TIMM resteems will be broadcast to TIMM’s social channels, hosted on TIMM.Ninja and receive an upvote from TIMM and his voting trail.
For those who want to take it to another level, becoming Mentors, you will be able to provide premium blog services for your readers, with TIMM facilitating payment for your analysis. Premium newsletter services and alerts are available with this service as well.
This will be a live service where all visitors, Members and Mentors interact 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
There will be three basic levels:
- A free version where Mentors can share basic information about the site and users can interact, sort of like a trollbox. Membership is required to post comments.
- A premium room for only Members where Mentors will provide more serious actionable analysis.
- Mentors will have premium chat rooms for group and/or one on one conversations with their subscribers.
It’s possible that there aren’t any tools that work as well as webinars for teaching others about market analysis. Mentors can charge for webinar services, use them for updates, build tutorials, post them on YouTube or utilize them however else they want. Mentors will set their own fees, with TIMM receiving a portion for facilitating.
Did we mention newsletters? What advisory service would be complete without some form of newsletter service? Mentors can offer both free and fee based newsletters. They can also vary their timeframes and offer multiple newsletter services.
This will be a combination TIMM Wiki and a place for providing a searchable venue for information, interaction and strategies. Mentors can be given their own section of the forums to help instruct their subscribers.
That’s what TIMM is all about. The challenge for investors and analysts to find each other is real. The challenge to discern which analysts are worth following is real. And the challenge for analysts to find ways to market their expertise is equally as real.
TIMM meets that challenge.
We should have our initial blog up in a couple of days. A week or so from now, analysts will be able to post from TIMM.
