Reasons to Invest

Freelancers contributed nearly $1 trillion to the US economy in 2019, with 57 million freelancers in the US (up by 4 million since 2014). This workforce now represents 5% of the US GDP
TmrO received its first 450 users and first 10 completed projects in the app, in January of 2021
TmrO is founded and built by creatives for creatives

A future-focused app that enables creative freelancers to not only survive, but to thrive

TmrO was founded by creative entrepreneurs who live by the motto of “helping, sharing, and solving problems”. Our gaze has always been into the future, while drawing inspiration from what we see shifting around us.

gif

The TmrO App is just that: a manifestation of what the future holds for creative working people and those looking to discover them. We have built a tool to support the wellbeing of the global workforce, with a laser focus on what our new world of talent needs in order to thrive.

The Problem


Freelancers struggle with getting paid in a fair and timely manner, while clients struggle to find reliable talent

Creative freelancers have a hard time getting paid for jobs they've delivered, with 54% of freelancers reporting consistent issues getting paid on time. The creative freelance industry is often unpredictable, making it difficult to find steady, reliable work during down periods.

Source 

Service seekers (individuals, small business owners & corporations) also struggle to source reliable talent that can deliver on their needs and in a timely manner. Oftentimes they don't know where to start without a costly professional recruiter, especially when time is of the essence.

The Solution


Finally, a platform that puts creatives first!

TmrO guarantees freelancers with payment before they even start a project, and pays them within seconds of completing it. While similar platforms take a 10-20% commission, TmrO only takes 5% for each project, and offers a dispute process to help support the resolution of any project discrepancies. 


TmrO focuses on both ‘in-person’ and remote services, and helps creatives find last-minute projects with its “Book Instant” feature (that enables instant booking based on current location and availability).

Along with instant payouts, our platform will provide freelancers with a debit card that can be used just like any other, as well as electronic tax reports and filing.

The Market


Freelancers make up more than $1 trillion of the US economy, and this number only continues to grow

Freelancers contributed nearly $1 trillion to the US economy in 2019, with 57 million freelancers in the US (up by 4 million since 2014). This workforce now represents 5% of the US GDP. 


33% of Freelancers worked in creative fields in 2018, representing $330 billion in annual revenue. US Creators who offered their services and worked online (across 9 popular platforms) earned a baseline of $6.8 billion in 2017, up 17% from the previous year. 

Source 1, Source 2, Source 3

TMRO plans to capture at minimum 3% of that revenue over the course of our plan representing over $200+million.

Our Traction


TmrO was launched earlier this year and already has hundreds of users!

The idea for TmrO came about in July of 2018, and the company was formed in August of 2018. After working with a few different developers, the Beta version of our app was launched in August of 2020 and TmrO (MVP) was ready for the App Store in October of 2020.

We soft-launched TmrO by going live in the App Store, launching www.tmroapp.com, and going live on Instagram in November of 2020. We received our official US trademark registration for the name TmrO, as well as our first 450 users and first 10 completed projects in the app, in January of 2021.

What We Do


An on-demand gig app that facilitates the hyperactive daily commerce of creative services

Our app allows creative freelancers to readily find opportunities and get paid almost instantly. Users simply download the free TmrO app and create a user account and profile to get started.

Creative freelancers can specify the services they offer (such as photography or voice-over acting), as well as their hourly rate, and include any images and videos they want to enhance their profile. These services immediately add creative freelancers to the marketplace, where they can be discovered and booked by clients. Additionally, creatives have the ability to search and apply for projects that clients list in the marketplace.


Client users have the ability to create projects from inside their profiles, by adding a description, as well as images, budget, date and location. Projects immediately appear in the marketplace, once they are created, and clients can request proposals from specific creative they wish to work with. 


Before a creative is booked, clients and creatives have the opportunity to message inside the app, share files, and negotiate the budget for the project.

The Business Model


Commission-based revenue + a new debit card program under way

TmrO makes its revenue by charging a 5% commission fee on each project. When clients book creative freelancers for projects, TmrO charges the client the full amount upfront, to ensure that creatives don’t start a project without secured payment. Once the creative completes the project, they select “project complete”, and the client is notified and has “48 hrs to dispute”. If the client does not dispute, funds will flow from TmrO’s escrow account into the creative’s account, and TmrO will deduct its commission. 

This round of funding will help us to launch our debit card program that will allow our creatives to get paid within seconds. 


Our Average Order Value differs by the tier of the client and creative, ranging anywhere from $75 to $1000 to $15,000 on the high end. 

How We Are Different


Instant payment, instant booking and low commission fees 

We are not the first entrepreneurs to build a platform for freelancers and certainly won’t be the last. However, we believe we are the first ‘gig’ platform built for the mobile native demographic.

As creative freelancers ourselves, who are currently engulfed in the industry, we are very in touch with the needs and pain points of our users. Here are a few of our key differentiators:

  1. We focus on in-person services for content creation in the music, film and commercial specialities, as well as guaranteed payments to our creatives before they even start a project. 

  2. Our pay out times are significantly shorter than other platforms, and our debit card program will allow instant payments with a significantly lower commission rate than our competitors.

  3. TmrO has a ‘Book Instant’ feature, great for last minute gigs, that allows clients to search portfolios of creatives who are nearby and ready to work. 

*The above information is based on internal research and management's experience.

The Vision


The new home base for creative freelancers and clients alike

In 3 years, we will be at the forefront of the US workforce. TmrO will be the platform that connects entrepreneurs, small businesses, managers, agencies, big companies, and the best creatives in their fields. We will be the mobile community that helps creative freelancers grow their confidence and their careers.

OUR LEADERSHIP


We have deep experience both as creative freelancers and successful business owners

Founders, Don and Kayla, have worked as professional creative freelancers for over 15 years.

Don started out as a DJ and went on to build the biggest mixtape company in the US South and become VP of A&R Def Jam. He now runs Generation Now, the label behind the success of artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Jack Harlow. 


Kayla started out as a songwriter signed to Epic Records and Warner Brothers Records and went on to sign a publishing deal with Warner Chapel, working as a professional songwriter for several years. She also started and led two online retail destinations for women's clothing and accessories, and was awarded a United States Design Patent for her product, The Leg Glove. 


Don and Kayla saw the need for a platform that would help aspiring creatives like themselves to turn their creative skills into a career. The TmrO team is poised to lead the new wave of creative freelancing, providing creatives with the tools to build a successful career!

Why Invest


We are driving the freelance economy by empowering creatives and connecting them with greater opportunities!

More than one-third of the American workforce is freelance, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, contributing $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy. At Tmro, we are giving our community an opportunity to be a part of this growing industry, as investors in the early stages of a promising tech startup. 

gif

TmrO is founded by a team of seasoned and successful creative entrepreneurs dedicated to changing the way creative freelancers work, and grow their businesses and careers. We intend to become a driving force of the freelance economy, putting the power back in the hands of creators, providing them with guaranteed payments, faster payout times, and more opportunities with our ‘Book Instant’ feature.


When you invest in TmrO, you are investing in the future of freelancing, as well as a team of executors, who have already invested over 400k of our own money to bring a product that we truly believe in, to the public!

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Common Stock shares at $6.00 / share, you will receive 110 shares, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $600. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid during the investors' eligibility period. Investors eligible for this bonus will also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest and the company surpasses its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available if prior investments are cancelled or fail.

The Company will not incur any irregular use of proceeds.

Kayla Shelton, Co- Founder + CEO of TMRO App, Gives A Sneak Peek Inside TmrO Apps Weekly Development Meetings.

5 months ago

Kayla Shelton, Co- Founder + CEO of TMRO App, and long time creative freelancer, shares what it looks like to work with her team via zoom. Every week, Kayla works with her designers, developers, and project manager to discuss current progress in the app and check off items on the TmrO road map. This video specifically gives an overview of a design to show creative users their "Pending balance". TmrO guarantees payment to its creative freelancers, prior to "booking" them, by debiting the client user, the full amount, and holding it in escrow until the project is completed successfully. The "pending balance" design shows the creative user, that their payment is waiting for them, and once they complete the project successfully, their payment will flow through to their account within only 48 hours.
