  2. 2. At Quantron Systems we know how tough it is to come up with new ideas in a saturated global market. Especially ideas, which are contagious and increase sales for clients. To combat this problem we gather in the boardroom at the beginning of every week and let our staff share their insights from the world of tech, apps, design, culture and consumer trends.

  3. 3. 1. LISTEN TO THE BUZZ Going with your gut is great, but to brainstorm contagious business ideas for mobile apps, sofware or brands you need to listen carefully to what’s out there. That means understanding the culture you are in and being aware of consumer voids. There are many ways you can do this, including having clients fill out surveys, reading articles and using SEO tools. Two options we recommend are BuzzSumo and Google Trends. BuzzSumo is a relatively new online tool, which provides valuable insights into trending content and segments shares based on popular social media platforms. Google Trends is a great tool to see the timeline and geo popularity of a search term and be able to forecast what breakout variations will be gaining traction in the near future.

  4. 4. Image courtesy of [stockimages] / FreeDigitalPhotos.net 2.THINK GLOBALLY LOCALLY Sometimes, in order to stand out locally you have to think globally. We now live in a global village where consumer behaviour patterns halfway across the world can spark change in our own backyard. One resource we recommend to everyone is trendwatching.com. They recently developed a consumer trend canvas, which helps you find opportunities for innovation. The site also provides macro overview of trends correspondents are spotting from around the world! If you still crave more information regarding innovative business ideas shaping the world, check out trendwatching.com’s sister site springwise.com - “your essential fix of entreprenural ideas.”
  5. 5. 3.CREATE VALUE Often times “novelty” is confused with “value” and in most cases the pitfall of scalable solutions. In order to have contagious business ideas, which increase sales you have to think about the end user at all times. Take for example one of the earliest bicycles ever designed. It came after the Velocipede, but with one novel exception - a larger front wheel. Makers concluded that larger wheels allowed you to travel farther and ignored practically all together. The result? Users enjoyed the novelty of the bike but crashed frequently. The same principal applies to our modern day technology. Recently we developed a bench press app to help athletes keep track of their exercises efficiently. We could have designed the mobile app with a host of “novel” features, such as augmented reality; however, there’s more value in simplifying an athlete’s routine than entertaining him or her at the gym.

  6. 6. 4.TELL A STORY If a mobile app, brand or online portal simplifies the way an end user completes a task, then there is a good chance it can also help the user tell a story. Why do stories matter? Because by and large customers broadcast their stories on social media channels. Some corporate anthropologists even argue we adapt and live through certain experiences in order to tell stories. If you are in the B2C sector for example, the story can revolve around the interval achievements of your customers. If you are in the B2B sector this could mean awarding badges to your best partners and providing them with trust indicators on their site. Image courtesy of [stockimages] / FreeDigitalPhotos.net
  7. 7. 5. OPTIMIZE & VALADATE Optimizing your ideas is one of the best ways to ensure progress. Keep in mind the golden rule of 80/20, or otherwise known as “Pareto's Principle.” Broadly speaking, 20% of your input will give you 80% of your results and sometimes these numbers will be even more skewed. It’s like finding a ladder to your end goal. Save yourself time and energy by focusing on resources, which can transparently validate or dismiss your idea. Tools such as Optimizely.com can help with your A/B testing needs. The Lean Canvas can help document your business idea in less than 20 minutes (Leanstack.com). And finally, Google Adwords can help you setup campaigns for your beta ideas and track the response of your potential customers from beginning to end.
