Help Us Choose a Winner
We need your help! As you may know, last year Dolphin Micro entered the Web app market with the launch of our first product, Hours Tracking. In determining a direction for our next project, we’ve decided to take an unconventional approach.
In January, we held our yearly planning meeting in Key Largo, Florida. We knew we wanted to release another app this year, but our team had so many great ideas, we found it difficult to choose. So, rather than settle on a single idea, we decided to hold an internal contest to determine which of three ideas had the best early market potential.
We divided our developers into three teams and tasked each group with conceptualizing, prototyping and promoting its own Web app. Within the space of 30 days, each team was required to fully flesh out its app idea, determine a market and monetization strategy for it, and develop a marketing plan. On or before March 1st, each team mounted a “pre-launch” website designed to educate potential users about the project and gage interest. Visitors are asked to enter their email addresses in order to be notified when/if the site goes live.
Now it’s time for you to help us choose the winning idea. On April 1st, the team that has generated the most interest – in the form of its email list – will be given the financial resources necessary to finish its project. Which idea is most interesting to you?
Here are the projects to choose from:
