About

We believe that everyone has a story and can contribute to the news narrative.


Tipster is a news sharing platform that is democratizing the news making business by placing the power of the media into the hands of ordinary people whom we call Tipstars. Tipster is basically empowering anyone with a smartphone to be an amateur journalist.


Tipster provides a secure channel for ordinary people to upload exclusive news content (images, videos and reports) which is then distributed/sold to content consumers and publishers (probloggers, Media Houses, TV channels etc) depending on the type of content.

Content Consumers

Services

Tipstar Generated Content

Tipster allows ordinary citizens (Tipstars) to upload exclusive news content which is verified and edited by the Tipster editorial team before it is sold and distributed for publishing.

Commercial Content

Tipster sometimes brings work to Tipstars instead of the other way round. If Mainstream Media requires a story covered based on location, date and interests, Tipstars will be deployed to cover the story.

Content Marketing

Tipster offers customized relationship-based and buyer-driven digital marketplace to help companies or businesses to not only pitch their products and services but to deliver relevant and valuable information that makes their customers better informed.

Storytelling

Our storytellers use stories to help Brands to develop narratives that shape the meaning they represent, develop brand culture and identity through tapping into their clients emotions and logic to ignite passion and imagination.
