You’ve got a lot on your plate: important client meetings, traveling, drafting proposals and watching all six seasons of The Sopranos. So when it comes to the time you have to spend tackling your inbox (which now reads 1375 unread!), you’re pretty strapped. However, what if you could put a price tag on your time? What if you could actually charge someone for reading their email and – wait for it – responding to said email too!?
Introducing Attention Auction, now in beta. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Folks put a price tag on their time, and if your willing to pay the price, you are guaranteed that they will both read and reply to your email.
Everyone on the site has a profile that details his or her skills and areas of expertise. So, when you are hoping that the talent scout for the next HBO series will read your email describing why you are perfect for the lead role, you can find them and pay a price that may lead to stardom. Pretty neat. Now, the hard part: how much is your time worth?
