No One Asked Me…But Here’s My $0.019 Cents & Biz Idea

This morning as I read and shared my research to start the day I read this article on Mashable: http://mashable.com/2014/06/18/kids-tv-shows-that-should-be-rebooted/

Serious lack of content, there has to a portal with serious security where ideas can come from anywhere and agencies, studios, production, product placement, etc etc

Problem: “We are so desperate for shitty content that we are looking to reboot bad TV shows to save the entertainment industry.”
“So I have a better idea: THE PORTAL IDEA”
Philosophy & Theory: I believe there are good to even great ideas out there that are not heard because it’s not the idea of so and so or this company or this agency. Somebody get those ideas because I don’t want Mr. Rogers anymore and the children deserve more engaging and smarter content. It’s a new world.

The Portal Idea:

Serious lack of content, there has to a portal with serious security where ideas can come from anywhere and agencies, studios, production, product placement, etc etc.

Solution Idea: Now Back to The Portal Idea

Business Product Revenue:

– Businesses would pay for a seat on the software with packages for access to certain or all content. (Similar to a Salesforce.com RGU models but not as expensive of course. Seat charges, search charges, content type)

– User Product Revenue: (although I like free of costs and share in profits)

– Users free with upgrades that are really cheap and the large clients (businesses the company has)

Company Revenue Generating Model from User & Business

– Company gets a commission off every deal done through the application. (Yes this ups the tech work but it’s where the money is at!)

Content:
Text/Ideas – briefs, journalists, copywriters,
Photo
Music
Video
(all coming from independent individuals)

I know there is this does this and this company does this but seriously I think (with no research at all this is unique).

Investor Target & Client: (The Win…Win)

Music labels should invest (publishing & bands and brands side)
Publishing companies – Hearst, Conde
TV – studio and network side
Product Placement companies
Tech Investors that are in the space

This could be funded low by partnering with a tech company that has a platform that can be tweaked if needed. So the tech side…low.

Seed Round for development final product though not MVP (web & app, Droid & OS)

A Round for beta, alpha and quietly go to market

B Round for go to market

(These rounds should be fast like over 2 years, sorry I haven’t thought through valuation, but hey what the money wants will start to dictate that)

MVC: I would use ember, just my personal preference and we use it at Gocella…I’m a fan

 

Profile building has to be seamless and UI has to be super slick

Business side has to really easy to use and inspire people to use it with utilization mechanisms (example: business clients set up profiles per seat or one for the main types of content they are interested in and company alerts them when content that meets those guidelines is updated or something like this).

Data has to be tagged by the user to match our criteria to client

In a nutshell LnkedIn + Facebook + Sound Cloud is the design I would think of #1 and #2 most engaged platforms and one used for businesses as well as #3 that gives the company ideas on sharing, content organization etc

All 3 could be partners.

Well there is an idea I had this morning with no research so take it easy on me hahaha

Have a great day!
