Take a minute and think about who the one person you’d like to meet with is. Dream big. Is it a famous VC? An inspiration in the startup world? One of the top influencers in your field? The president?
While that last one is probably out of reach for 99% of us, the first three just might be reachable with a new app called ThirtyMin. The goal is to cut through all the clutter and noise that is Twitter, about.me, Google +, emails, Facebook… Need I go on? I think you get the picture — there are a million ways to get in touch these days, which means that actually getting in touch with the folks that everyone else also wants to get in touch with can seem near impossible.
ThirtyMin gets rid of what I like to call the “throw-spaghetti-on-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks” approach to trying get the attention of top influencers. By that I mean hitting up every single one of those aforementioned social networks and communication platforms and hoping that either, a) you bug the person so much that they agree to a meeting or, b) one of them gets through. Neither of those approaches is likely to yield a great result, yet that’s what thousands of people are doing all day, every day, when they’re trying to connect online.
Here’s how it works. You submit to compete for a meeting with an influencer on the platform. Ten people compete for that meeting and if you win, you’re guaranteed to meet with them within seven days. Every meeting is 30 minutes — and 30 minutes only — because ThirtyMin knows that time is valuable to both you and the person you’re meeting with. It also ensures that you’ll do plenty of prep for the time that you have. As the strap line says: Make it precious.
And they’re right. The opportunity to meet with that dream person is, truly, precious. It shouldn’t be so, so hard to connect, not in the days of internet. Let ThirtyMin make it that much easier for you. Sign up for early access by heading over to their site now and you’ll be one of the first to take advantage of this great opportunity.
