Pitchengine received confirmation Friday that Tiny Pitch™ has been granted "patent pending" status by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Tiny Pitch uses an "invisible interface" to enable users to create dynamic content for the web from their device using any email client.
"The idea is to remove the friction," explained Jason Kintzler, Founder and CEO of Pitchengine.
"Formatting was such a big component of PR and marketing back in the desktop publishing era and it remains a challenge for professionals using the web and social media in 2017. We're trying to solve a decades-old problem here and I think we've got a compelling product."
Tiny Pitch has amassed 500 users since the 2.0 version was released last month. Kintzler says it's just one of those things you have to see to believe."
"You just have to try it to understand it. I smile every time I use it," he said.
Entrepreneur's Andrew Medal called it a killer product, "It’s honestly one of my favorite new products and super effective for all types of press creation."
Pitchengine worked with the Research Products Center at the University of Wyoming to study the viability of the system before moving forward with the patent process.
Ryan Hoover, Founder of Product Hunt, sees a hundreds of new products being launched on his platform every month. His perception of Tiny Pitch was that it may not even be automated.
"I'm curious what they're doing behind the scenes to create the page. They may be manually creating these pages," he said in a comment on Product Hunt.
Kintzler said he's encouraged by the speculation and the excitement Tiny Pitch has generated so far.
"It just confirms that we're not just mad scientists here. We might actually be creating stuff people want."
