The WhichIt for Business platform allows for image-based polls that can be shared online and across various social networks, including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. They can create a “call to action” and can provide publishers with the power to monetise their content in an engaging way.
Jonathan Gan, Founder and CEO of WhichIt, will appear on the FIPP London Start-up Tour this November. The tour will introduce you to leaders throughout the industry and provide you with the opportunity to get up close and personal with the London media and digital scene.
Jonathan spoke to Danielle Ricketts about the image-based social platform and the benefits of using WhichIt for publishers, ahead of his appearance.
Whichit leverages the power of choice to enhance interaction between brands and consumers. We aim to allow brands, marketers and bloggers to give their audience a voice. In return we allow the publishers to discover trends, and turn social media activity into revenues and actionable insights in a way that consumers love.
Whichit is an image-based social platform that allows users and businesses to crowdsource opinions by sharing image based polls. Whichit Pro, our platform for professionals provides marketers with a more impactful way to drive sales, build brand affinity and understand market trends.
Whichit Pro allows for image-based polls to be shared across publishers’ online assets by embed on their website and blog, as well as their various social network channels (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest). The interactive Whichit polls also contain a ‘call to action’ as a natural part of the user experience. This provides publishers with new opportunities to monetise their content in a way that consumers enjoy to engage with.
On top of new monetisation opportunities, Whichit Pro also provides publishers with a powerful platform to discover and analyse consumer trends in real time.
Whichit Pro is a tool to instantly create highly engaging content, by taking content already published by the magazine and turning it into catchy, image-based polls.
Magazines can then use Whichit’s content in several manners:
Whichit won several awards, including being recognised as Facebook’s App of the Year for EMEA region, because we listened to our target audience and created an App that users love to engage with. Our App measures an average time of four minutes and engagement levels of 30 per cent on our user app.
We took these capabilities and recognising the power of our platform, created a unique tool for professional marketers called Whichit Pro.
By providing consumers with a simple and fun app, and professionals with a powerful tool we managed to create a platform where consumers and brands can engage with each other in a direct and effective manner.
We feel honored and privileged to meet the members of FIPP. At the beginning we have been focused on the fashion segment, targeting consumers and brands in this sector. We now wish to expand into more sectors.

“That’s what I thought. I’m ready for this. And I was excited. I had spent five years in digital; I was excited to be able to return to the media I had fallen in love with, which was print. That was the thing that defined my decision to become a magazine person in the first place. I had been a maniacal print obsessive for my whole childhood. And spending those years in digital really helped me have perspective on consumers and consumer behaviour.” - Kate Lewis, chief content officer, Hearst Magazines14th Feb 2019 Features
