Announcing "The Influencer 100", Apps, and Start-up News

77 Comments


Tech influencer Kevin Rose giving me love in Okinawa.

This will be short. Several quick and very fun updates:

- The 4-Hour Body® app is now live, as is the stripped-down The Slow-Carb Diet® App. Enjoy, and please provide feedback in the comments! NOTE: iPhone coming up… sign up for the beta here.

- I am working with an incredible new start-up called Quarterly.co. I’ll be sending out boxes of physical products I love to subscribers every three months (details coming soon). In addition, I’ll be sending my 4x/year packages to the “Influencer 100™” — 100 friends of mine who all create tipping points.

These 100 include top tech “influencers” with audiences of 1-10+ million, star professional athletes, A-list Hollywood actors, “Midas List” venture capitalists, and much more. Nowhere else can you get the captive attention of people like Kevin Rose (tech) and Chase Jarvis (photography/entertainment) at once, just to name two.

Would you like to get your product (physical, not digital) in front of the top tastemakers in the US, these “Influencer 100&#0153″? Just fill out this form and let me know.

  1. Yo Tim,

    Nice. I am curious – who and what are the other “categories”? Give us a bit more of a teaser dude.. I am mainly curious about the VC’s you have on board. The other category I am interested in is Marketing (Hoping to see Joe Polish in there some where).

    See ya around.

  2. Hey Tim,

    Love it! What perfect timing! I just submitted my brand new product through your form (easy process), and it went through like a champ!

    Thanks again Tim, I read every post, and work to put it in action, and find myself spreading the Gospel of Tim (Nice 4th book title, eh?)

    Please look for my name in your submissions :).

  4. Neat! I’ll have to check out those apps.

    The first time I saw the photo I thought you had your hands behind your head at finger-gun-point. I didn’t see that your friend was smiling either. Needless to say I had some amusing alternate theories as to what an article titled with “The Influencer 100″ could contain.

  5. Can’t wait for the iOS release (hopeful). I’m sure it’s a great app knowing the quality of your work, just don’t have any Android devices to actually see it. ;-)

  6. Great idea with the apps Tim.

    Question(s):

    1. What company did you work with to develop them? Another one you advise … connection … or straight up hired someone?

    Thanks!

    • Parsida AB is the company listed as the app developer and in earlier comments Farid Behnia seemed to be answering questions as though he was the developer.

  7. I really love the subscription box model. Peopl love surprises so much, I’m sure it’ll be successful, just like the others in other industries.
    The application of the model is very attractive.

  8. Hi Tim and community,

    I went to quarterly.co to sign up for Tim’s quarterly shipments, but he wasn’t listed as a “contributor”. Am I missing something or is he not setup in the system yet? Seems like this blog post was a bit… premature.

    Regards,
    Jason

    P.S. Anyone Android folks out there download the app yet and have a review? Interested to hear thoughts before putting down 10 greenbacks.

    • @Jason,

      We’re #35 in the top paid apps in the US (below 10 in some other countries) so I believe the answer is yes.

      You can try the app for 15 minutes and refund if you don’t love it.

      All the best,
      Farid

  9. Usually…it’s us ‘Droids who are waiting oh so patiently in the shadows for the app to be available as the iPhone massive are away having their fun…I don’t want to gloat, but it sure is nice to see an Android app out the door before Apple.

    I’ve splashed out the wonga…feedback in a month ;-)

    Quaterly.co looks funky although Tim’s not on there…….yet.

  10. The Quarterly.co idea sounds like a souped up version of birchbox – which I think is quite successful – and I think quarterly will be too!

  11. Hi Tim!

    Loved the App. It’s quite handy and seems to work smoothly while keeping me committed to the workouts. Thumbs up!

    I guess we’re lucky to follow the blog, cuz I told about this to my colleagues at work today, but they couldn’t find any links to the app on your website?! I sent them direct link anyway;)

  12. Hey Farid! It sounds like you have the lead on this, so…
    Tmobile, Samsung galaxy S, software version 2.2, downloads well and looks good!
    I’m curious about the “strategery” behind the decision to go with Android first rather than Apple.
    I’m faced with a similar choice.
    Nice work!
    Cheers!

    • Thank you J.

      Play off your strength and start with what you already have in your hand.

      Also, depending on your app features, beware of Android fragmentation.

      Please leave us a review if you feel like it! :)

  13. Hello Tim,
    I was brought to your book by wave of Michael Hyatt. I just finished reading/listening to Platform. He mentioned your book in his and I figured I would go ahead and read it. I was wondering if the book once purchased came with an audio version? I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks

  14. W00t! I am glad the Android users get the first jab for the Four Hour Body apps. Usually the Android users have to wait because the developers release the premiere apps to iOS users first due to its market size.

    However, I would love to subscribe to your product package. When can I sign up. I subscribed to few contributors at quarterly.co. It is going to be an awesome package and creativity triggers out of this experience.

  15. Hi Tim, do you think you could have a one-day-a-week binge day like you advocate in 4h Body if you consumed super clean foods the other days, even if the diet during the week was moderate to high in carbs, such as fruit, rice and potatoes?

  18. Tim,

    Are you still going to be a contributor on Quarterly.co? I’ve been looking for you on there since you posted this article but have yet to see you as a contributor I can subscribe to. Any update on when you are going to start as a contributor on there would be great so I know when to look out for it. Thanks.

    Jason
