A platform to request and pay for public feedback

Yet another platform idea where the asker pledges a bounty:)

The asker pledges a bounty and asks for feedback. Everyone who provides feedback of sufficient quality gets a share of the total bounty payout. The asker gets instant feedback - useful for fast prototyping.

The bounty could be limited to the first X number of submissions so that every person gets a fair portion of the bounty to be worth the time they spent reviewing the asker's stuff.

Such a system could provide regular micro-income for many people. Eventually, it could grow sufficiently so that specific types of people could be polled (by age, location, gender, profession, education, interest, etc).

Use case scenarios:
  • The asker (for example product designer) could ask people whether option A is better than option B. Or which of the several listed options is best and why.
  • The asker could ask people to test a product and document the first impressions.
  • What else?
People could sign up, by entering their data in the questionnaire. When there is work to be done, the platform would send out an email request for feedback to X people to get the required number of responses. Users who do not respond to such requests would get fewer requests in the future. The platform would send out additional requests to fill the quota. Feedback would be rated by the asker. The rates would help the platform rank the users.

The asker could opt to receive the feedback privately or publicly.

Remove the incentive for positive bias

To ensure the feedback is not biased towards praises, make it so that everyone gets paid regardless of the type of bias.

Protect the payee from nonsense contributions by providing the ability to dispute paying for specific entries. The disputes are then reviewed by reviewers/arbitrators. If they are obvious attempts to take advantage of the system, such users would be prevented from participation in the future.

There are already many websites that pay people for writing reviews/giving feedback. For example, as listed here: https://wahadventures.com/get-paid-write-reviews/. I haven't done much research on each of those and don't know the specifics of how they operate, but I think there's room for novelty in that the platform could be more generalized and larger, encompassing many fields and letting anyone who wants any kind of feedback to be able to ask for it as well as anyone who is willing (and meeting the set criteria) to be able to give it. A simplified and more universal process. A shared bounty instead of steady pay is also a novel approach. An app instead of a website is probably a good idea.

I like the idea! Since all the reviewers answer a pre-defined set of questions, the bounty can be equally distributed within the reviewers.
