Yournews.com makes life better in 30 seconds through the power of content and community. Our powerful media platform enables busy women to connect, discover and share inspiring tips – each in about 30 seconds – and they are rewarded for sharing their time with us.
Like many women, Yournews.com founder and busy mom of three Elisa All Schmitz found herself constantly reaching for her phone to multi-task and get things done. Whether waiting in the school carpool line, standing in the grocery store check-out or running her businesses, her smartphone became the most important tool in her utility belt. It was clear she was not alone. In fact, 96 percent of her fellow moms said they would return home if they left their mobile behind.
Having recently sold her first business, iParenting, to the Walt Disney Company, Elisa knew the opportunity to provide busy women with information and inspiration on the go was her next challenge as an entrepreneur. She launched 30Second Mom with the mission to provide mobile moms with quick and helpful tips from experts – 30 seconds at a time – delivered straight to their phones.
Since then, Yournews.com has grown into a full-scale digital media company with nearly 300 contributors globally, five content channels and nearly 10,000 tips in its database. Our nuggets of wisdom are unique and original – family traditions, favorite recipes, cherished secrets, health and beauty insights, parenting hacks, product recommendations and more – that help busy women save time, money and their sanity. You can customize your content stream to receive tips on topics that are important to you. After reading or viewing our content, you can engage by commenting, liking and sharing the tips with your social networks – all while earning “time collected” (reward points), which can be redeemed for prizes and sponsor products in our Rewards Store.
We work with brands by helping to share their messages with our community. Whether through promoted tips, our awards program, making products available in our Rewards Store or through a custom campaign, we would love to work with you!
If you have a passion or an expertise and you want to share your own tips, we invite you to join our tribe and become a 30Seconds contributor. On 30Seconds, we realize time is your most precious resource. That’s why when you’re here, time is money! The more you engage with us, the more time you collect in your bank, adding up to greater rewards. We look forward to having you join our thriving community!
