As I’m currently get closer to my social network launch new ideas are starting to pile up. But there is one I want to run by you guys/gals to see what you think.
Upon sign up everyone will automatically be put in a community. The community will be based on city which will be a custom field in the sign up form. (later they can create sub-groups within or out of the city community).
The reason for this is…
Going forward once a community has been developed to (for argument sake) 100
members, they can then vote on a local establishment they would like to try (list of local establishment will be provided). Any local establishment that has 75% of the vote, we will then approach with a Groupon type deal which will then be offered to our online community.
This helps me in many ways. I don’t have the budget or manpower to be running the streets trying to find businesses to promote so I feel my chances of success are better this way because…
1. A group of people chose it so sales conversion should be relatively higher.
2. I can approach a local establishment with more confidence because I have the power of community behind me.
Stay tune for idea number 2
