New App “Seek” Offers Local Recommendations
As you may have heard, Seek is a unique app launching in the Fall that lets users find trusted recommendations from local, like-minded curators.
Today, we’re announcing the top ten most unique curators on the app. Seek is a new platform unlike any other that connects consumer leisure influencers, or “curators”, with consumers looking for trustworthy and relevant recommendations for where to eat, drink, and hang. Consumers will now have access to the expertise of their favorite local influencers – an advisory board of in-the-know tastemakers across different niches – while curators will have the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and eventually monetize through premium subscriptions.
“Seek has an option to play roulette and find a curator that might offer a recommendation that the user wouldn’t have otherwise found within their profile parameters. I wanted to create an app to help people find local spots, help influencers build their personal brands, and support local businesses at the same time. I’m so excited to share it with New York City and the rest of the world.”
Seek CEO and Co-Founder, Shanna Liu
