Tidal is a platform that allows individuals to join networks of well-known brands and publishers. When they do, Tidal analyzes what they’re writing about and how influential they are. Then, we connect our members' most appropriate content to brand’s sites, apps, and social channels. In turn, we bridge the gap between brands and their biggest fans through editorial, events, promotions and interaction with the staff.

User Signups

• Members sign up both from Tidal’s network of thousands and a brand’s own superfan network.

Automatic Profiling
