Tim Weingarten, CEO, of “The Hunt” website and online application has created a solution to change the way the online community shops. The Hunt, created as “the cure for outfit envy” has evolved into an international social platform.
With trending hashtags like #OOTD (outfit of the day), #fashionfriday and #pursedaythursday, it is no surprise that social networks have become a book of knowledge for fashion trends and style icons. Questions about where celebrities and popular Fashionistas got their look are posted on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter every day. “The Hunt” gathered all aspects of this in a single location and enhanced the shopping experience in three major ways:
Like many of the other top social networks, The Hunt allows you to customize not only your profile but also, your search criteria. You can switch your profile pic as often as you want, include a catchy bio, link to your own website and choose to connect with others that live nearby or across the world, making the shopping experience more personal. You can customize your finds based on your budget, spending habits and style, filtering out the unnecessary.
One thing The Hunt app does differently to serve those who want to act on their inspiration is direct them to the exact source. When you see a photo of a to-die-for ensemble on Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram, you can surely comment on the post in hopes that other followers will engage. The chances of actually getting a response or the answers you’re looking for are sporadic. With The Hunt, those chances are dramatically increased with the help of their community of fashion-savvy and competitive users dedicated to getting you those “finds”. It brings you right to the link of your item, ready to purchase.
Post your “hunt” today and you very well may have your “find” tomorrow. If you’re out on the town, at a fashion show or even looking through a magazine, snap a photo of the person’s outfit you’re looking to find (in a non-stalkerish way, of course) and instantly post it for your fellow hunters to begin their search. Hunt users don’t even have to constantly check emails or log on to check their “find” status because a notification gets sent right to your phone. The Hunt’s ability to connect you with similar items or exact items on retailer websites or even a third-party site like Ebay, will save you hours spent on Google. Many parents and family members have used this app effectively around the holidays when things sell out fast.
