The COVID-19 pandemic forced many professionals in consulting, coaching, or other service professions to shift to digital solutions to stay operational. For many, the pivot has been less than seamless. Take, for instance, the personal fitness trainer who had to learn how to do live sessions via video call, receive payments, and manage schedules virtually. Doing it all in a new environment can be a challenge. But with the innovative app, Meet, professionals can integrate all the necessary activities into one.
Meet is a brainchild of former model and tech start-up founder Merritt Fletcher. As a professional who has worked with brands like Chanel, Missoni, Tiffany’s, Boucheron, Hugo Boss, Kenzo, Gian Franco Ferre, The Gap, Tommy Hilfiger, Armani, Levi’s, Reebok, Pantene, and Evian, Merritt knows what it takes to build top-quality products and brands. She has started multiple mobile technologies, including Weple and MeetGreet, and has ten issued patents and many pending in mobile applications.
Merritt’s latest offering is Meet, which provides professionals with a way to deliver virtual services on-demand and get paid seamlessly. “I came up with the concept because I understand the need for a product like Meet,” shares Merritt Fletcher. “So influencers and models could safely interact with their fans and followers no matter where they were in the world, at any time. Meet allows anyone to do just that, get paid for their own FaceTime, by the minute, anywhere.”
The simplest way to describe the service is, it’s a paid version of the FaceTime app that integrates deeply with a robust payment platform so that professionals can get paid for their precious time on-demand. Through the platform, users can name their “by the minute” pricing and post them on the app. Meet also provides a dashboard backend that manages schedules and availability for account users.
Meet is a service that meets the needs of hundreds of thousands of social media influencers, tutors, freelancers, medical professionals, therapists, coaches, fitness experts, interior designers, virtual veterinarian appointments, and more. Through the service, independent contractors and companies gain access to a payment gateway, video conferencing app, and appointment scheduler in one technology-based solution.
Through this new online service, users can simply promote their channels and receive requests. It takes out the arduous administrative process of facilitating payments, fixing schedules, and sending video calling links. Meet acts as an individual’s virtual assistant. The service also provides highly customizable meetup specifications, such as the duration of virtual meetings. “For example, a nurse might not want to do a meeting for under 15 or 30 minutes, while an influencer might want to do back-to-back meets at 5 minutes each,” explains the company CEO. “Our features allow everyone to customize their preferences according to what they are comfortable with.”
Through its revolutionary platform, Meet hopes to change the way professionals provide professional services that will allow them to earn even as the world enters into the post-COVID-19 new reality.
At the core of Meet’s mission is a desire to provide people with opportunities to earn online. Merritt believes in the power of technology to give people chances for professional and financial growth. She hopes her innovations will continue to be a bridge for users to thrive amid the current realities. The company aims to maintain exponential growth and become the leading service for remote work and mobile opportunities in the next five years.
