What is a Contributor?
A Contributor can be any woman who knows how to dress for her body, and is willing to share what works with other women who look similar.
As a Contributor, you can use Mys Tyler like a regular user to find outfit inspiration, but you can also post outfits to the community. Women will be matched to Contributors based on their appearance, and then they can choose to follow the ones whose style they identify with.
Contributors are encouraged to post links to the items in their post, to make it easy for women to purchase those items. Mys Tyler works with these brands, to receive a sales commission for each purchase.
Contributors take 80% of any commission Mys Tyler earns. Even if we aren’t set up with brands initially, we get prompted when a new brand is referenced, and then take action to convert the brand as soon as possible. We want this to be a platform that allows you to monetize your style, and create a new income stream.
What is a Founding Contributor?
Founding Contributors are the first Contributors to sign up to Mys Tyler. You'll be there from the beginning, and be part of our startup journey!
As thanks for playing this important role, you'll get a bunch of perks, including free membership for all of 2020 plus discounted membership for life, not to mention the status of being a Founding Contributor, which will be displayed on your profile. Plus, we'll keep you updated on our launch plans, so you get a sneak behind the scenes of a tech startup.
You can apply to be a Contributor within the app.
To keep the benefits and status of being a Founding Contributor, you will be required to remain an active member within our community. We determine a Founding Contributor inactivate if they post less than four times in a month (once we launch you onto the app).
I'm in, how do I sign up?
You can apply directly within the app!
Head to your profile, click +Contributor and start filling out your application. You need four photos of different outfits before you can submit your application.
Can I stop being a Contributor?
You can downgrade from being a Contributor, to just being a user at any time, there’s no membership fee for non-Contributors. This means you can use the app to follow other women, and use it for fashion inspiration and shopping. However non-Contributor members cannot post publicly, and down-grading will automatically loose any followers your account has.
You can delete the app at any time, and we can delete your details at any time as well.
What is the monthly membership for Contributors?
Membership is $20 per month.
Our intention is that you’ll be able to earn a new income through this platform. We match you to women who are relevant (who look like you), so that engagement and conversion are higher. You don’t need to bring an audience with you. So starting on our platform is not like starting on a normal platform…we do the hard work for you.
I don’t think I’m an influencer, can I be a Contributor?
We intentionally use the term Contributor rather than influencer, because we want women who are willing to share their style to help other women, even if they don’t identify as an “influencer".
How do I get my photos approved? Do you have a style guide?
We want you to keep your personal style. We just approve photos to make sure they are relevant to fashion, and will be helpful to other women. We may also give you feedback to help you get traction on our app.
How do I allow Mys Tyler to access all my photos on an Apple phone?
If you have an Apple phone and receive an error message when you try to add photos to your Mys Tyler account, there's an easy fix!
Settings > Mys Tyler > Photos > All Photos
1. Find your Settings icon on your iPhone home screen
2. Scroll down to find and select Mys Tyler
3. Select Photos
4. Select All Photos
About Mys Tyler
What is Mys Tyler?
Mys Tyler is a Sydney-based VC-backed startup on a mission to make fashion more empowering and enjoyable for all women and every body. We know finding clothes that fit requires trying them on, and this is a process of trial and (often demoralising) error.
We wondered if we could outsource trying clothes on to someone who looked like us, liked fashion, and knew how to pull together outfits.
Then, we stopped wondering and started building! Our mobile app matches women who look similar so that they can share what looks good, and how to wear it. It's like outsourcing trying clothes on to someone who knows how to dress for your body, and who has done the hard work of finding the winners!
How does Mys Tyler work?
Think of us as an Instagram for fashion. After downloading the app, you’ll do a quick body quiz, and we’ll match you to women who look like you (we consider height, size, shape, colourings and age). You choose to follow women whose style you like and this creates a personal feed that is body and style relevant. Then you can buy items you like directly from brands. Mys Tyler and Contributors receive commission from these brands, and that's how it all works!
We encourage all our users to post pictures of outfits you like, and store these away in your personal look book. It's a way to have on hand an easy reference to outfits that made you feel great. A quick cheat when you're deciding what to wear in the morning. These posts are private, and for your eyes only...unless, you decide to share your fashion wins with our community, and your #sizesisters, by becoming a Mys Tyler Contributor. We love diversity, would love as many of you to Contribute as possible!
Can I delete my account?
You can delete your account in app by clicking Profile in the bottom right corner > then click the Settings icon in the top left corner > select "Delete Account". If you can't see the option to delete your account, make sure you have updated the Mys tyler app and have the most recent version downloaded.
If you're still having trouble just contact us
here with your Mys Tyler handle and we’ll delete your account and details. Then you can simply logout and delete the app.
I’m a brand, can we partner?
Great! We’re actively partnering with brands via affiliate programs, in addition we are working with brands directly to help get your products in the hands of our Contributors. We’re a startup, and open-minded, so if you have some ideas, we’d love to discuss them with you. Reach out to Holly.
