Startup “Go Try It On” Makes Sure You Look Damn Good

| April 8, 2010 | 5 Comments

Go Try It On

What is the story behind Go Try It On?

While getting ready with friends, Marissa noticed that no matter which friends she was with…everyone would ask the same questions in the moments before going out…”How do I look?” …

She also realized when home, alone…there was never anyone to ask about her outfit!

She thought, “wouldn’t it be great if there was a website where users could go, and take a photo of themselves and get a second opinion on their look before they go out!”

What makes your company unique in its industry?

GOTRYITON.COM allows users to upload photos of themselves and get honest opinions on their look, before they go out!

Users can ask the community about their look, or if they prefer, they can keep their look private and just share with friends!

No other site out there is so focused on getting users a second opinion in real time…

Future plans for the company?

We are officially launching at SXSW 2010 as a finalist in the Microsoft Biz Spark’s Accelerator Competition (http://sxsw.com/interactive/accelerator/finalists)

    This is the type of real-time online business that is going to take over the world. It also fits an Iphone App perfectly. I really like the idea. Best of luck Marissa.

    Hi there,

    Stop with fairy tales. Starting a biz with no money is absolutely impossible. But running a business with no money is even more than impossible. We are in front of a sub-normal case here.

    Let me explain..I went to visit gotryiton.com and a huge doubt has been bothering me after that.
    How does Marissa Evans earn from it?
    1) There is no external advertising
    2) People don't seem to pay for a consultation
    3) People don't pay to subscribe

    How does this lady make money out of her business???
    That's the real question here! Does anybody have answers?

    Many thanks
