TipPools: The GoFundMe for Social Media Content
NEW YORK, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — TipSnaps, the Creator monetization platform with over 450k registered users, launched TipPools.com, a revolutionary new platform for fans to crowdfund and request pay-per-view content from any creator on the internet. With TipPools, an infinite number of fan-initiated requests can be created, funded, and fans can see their ideas come to life. One such idea happens to be a request to see two A-List celebrities settle their differences in the boxing ring! These A-listers are having a very public beef after one of them slapped the other during the Oscars! The TipPool has 325 contributors and has raised $4,258 in pledges and should continue to grow towards its goal of $1 million.
Here’s how it works: A fan can create a TipPool for any creator they follow on social media. They write a description, set a goal dollar amount, and within minutes they have a unique TipPool link they can share on social media and the web. If that sounds familiar, it’s very similar to GoFundMe, except the goal is for the creator to create content that fans want to see.
Once created, the TipPool Challenge will be discoverable for other fans to view and contribute. At any time, the creator has the option to claim the Pool. The TipSnaps team will coordinate with the creator to open their account, upload the requested content and only then the funds raised will be released to the creator. Content will be hosted or live streamed exclusively on TipPools.com and is only visible to fans who have contributed to the campaign. Fans are only charged if and when a creator accepts a TipPool.
“TipPools challenges what we’ve traditionally seen in the creator economy. It’s a whole new model that’s disrupting entertainment! We believe we’re empowering fans to request the content they actually want to see and a mechanism to collectively ask. Scale TipPools is an amazing opportunity for ALL fans and creators. We think TikTokers and Instagram influencers will take advantage of this in droves!” says the founder Lyonel Douge.
TipPools was built as part of TipSnaps’ mission to make creator monetization more accessible to everyone, especially underrepresented and minority creators. With TipPools, they pursue this mission by creating a symbiotic relationship between creators and their fans.
Hundreds of thousands of fans and subscribers can come together to request premium content. TipSnaps offers: global currency transactions, paid private messaging, monthly subscription services, content advice and a secure environment for all types of creators.
