Sage provides reviewers, chefs and other experts and publishers with a central place to share all their content.
To do this, the startup company created a new product called Sage Plus for Experts, which is not yet open to the public, but it is Accepting subscriptions Of the travel experts mentioned above – types of experts who can share content about things to do, food, drinks, experiences and shopping.
Founder and Chairman of the Executive Council Samir Aroura (Who is the Previously led media mode / Glam modes) Suggested that a Sage profile could serve as a creative center or publisher on the Internet. In the end, it can become the basis for them to build their own personal brand for consumers.
In this ad, Arora said the product was designed to answer a "simple question": "Why does not the Internet offer a simple way to show real experts' recommendations or authentic products and experiences from brands that we trust and love?"
Back in 2017, when Tell me first about his vision of Hakim In 2017, Arora said his goal was to create a reliable source of location data. In an interview earlier this month, he said the plan to focus on verified sources eventually led to this new product.
"We started by saying that the only way to verify information is to go back and check the sources of information – journalists."
To do this, Sage began to coordinate a list of trusted experts and began working with these experts, who Arora said they were asking for something like that. He explained to me how someone can come to Sage and connect social media accounts and author pages quickly – the profile is updated automatically.
There is therefore no required expertise, and after initial preparation, there is no further work – although if they want, experts can also publish reviews and lists specially designed for Sage. They can even publish their Sage profile as a separate application for the mobile phone, and start monetizing money through things like bookings and merchandise sales.
In some cases, the profile will already exist, and the expert simply needs to claim it.
"We have been helping the sources manually while training Amnesty International to rely reliably on going out into the world to find people who are professional in this work," Arora said.
He added that Sage's list has already grown to 5 million experts, with 200,000 active files. Among the active experts is food critic Masuhiro Yamamoto (who you may know from "Jiro Dreams Sushi").
Ultimately, all of the experts' content goes back to the broader Sage platform and will allow startups to recommend trustworthy publishers and make travel recommendations on what to do and where to go.
