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…
