SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FeedYak® (http://www.feedyak.com), the video, photo and text feedback app has added new features for professionals, home service contractors, shared economy service providers, individuals and corporations to showcase, build or repair their online reputation using testimonials and endorsements. FeedYak can be downloaded from Google Play or the iOS App Store.
“Unlike Yelp and other review sites, when you get new feedback or endorsements in FeedYak, they remain hidden unless you decide to show them,” said Rick Watkins, co-founder and CTO of FeedYak. “By using video, we eliminate the ability for a person to write multiple reviews as if they were different people. And with our approval features we protect people who simply don’t want any reviews.” Corporations can use FeedYak to provide continuous feedback on performance by gathering employee, manager, vendor and customer experiences.
The recently launched company aims to be the go to platform people use when researching individuals before conducting business with them. Users can watch and read what other people have said about someone to help decide whether to buy, hire or create a relationship with that person. Video gives a dimension of truthfulness that is not available using other media. The application’s use spans multiple markets, and is initially targeted in areas where first impressions are made based solely on online profiles.
“Whether you are selling something in the sharing economy, a contractor trying to attract new customers, a company looking to showcase your customer service, or looking for a new job, your online reputation is critical to your bottom line,” said Dave Watkins, co-founder and CEO. "People will be much less likely to rent your Airbnb room, share your car, or hire you if your competitor has a glowing reputation and you don’t.”
Available on Android and iOS, FeedYak® (www.feedyak.com) is a new platform for anyone with a smart phone or tablet to request and give video, photo and text-based feedback and endorsements. The app also allows users to showcase and record their accomplishments using multimedia. People and their profiles are discoverable in the application by anyone with a smart phone. An API is available for third party integration. Yelp is a registered trademark of Yelp. FeedYak is not affiliated with the Peeple.
