Yesterday AspirantSG wrote a great blog helping push Rankable to the continent of Asia
Asia has traditionally practised a high context culture and its people tend to keep their opinions amongst close ones or to themselves. There is an unspoken fear of not being able to conform within their groups or societies.
This barrier to voicing own point of view was weaken with the rise of charismatic, opinionated influencers as social media came into play. People looked up to these influencers, followed their beliefs and secretly wished they had the power to sway public views.
Today, we have evolved to the stage where we can at times agree to disagree with these influencers. We are no longer just followers. We are not afraid to make our individual opinions known but are we ready to contribute responsibly to crowd wisdom?
If your answer is yes. You are ready for Rankable!

The #RANKABLE Challenge
On twitter? Have an opinion? Want $100? Then join the #Rankable Challenge. We are picking up to 200 people and giving them a chance to win $100 each week for the next month. That’s a one in 200 chance! Those are better odds than you putting your shoes on the right feet every morning for 100 days. Seriously. We didn’t just make that up.
Here’s how it works.
During the contest, you have to tweet at least 2 #Rankable ratings per day to qualify. Each day we will give you a suggested topic for one of your tweets (ie: best/worst Hockey team). The other tweet(s) each day are up to you. At the end of each week, only those people who qualified are put in a draw for $100. The winner is announced and it starts over the next week.
If you are unfamiliar with #Rankable, see our FAQ page for instructions.
How to register:
1. Let us know you are in by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and include your twitter handle in the subject line. Only the first 200 responses will be considered.
2. Make sure you follow @rankable so we can DM you info for this contest.
3. (optional) Tweet: “@rankable is just as awesome as #turtlenecks! #rankable __/10”
1. Contest runs the weeks of
April 15 - May 31 May 1 - June 10
2. Winners will be drawn Sunday nights of the contest between 7pm and 9pm EST. Qualifications begin again at 12:00 midnight Sunday night.
3. To qualify, tweets must be done correctly. See our FAQ for instructions on how to use Rankable.
4. Tweeting more than 2 #Rankable tweets per day will not result in more chances of winning, but it will make us at #Rankable like you a bit more, and we think that that is a gift unto itself.
5. You must be a real live person to enter this contest. Mailing addresses of winners are required to accept prizes.
The website is looking good, if we do say so ourselves…
