  109. 109. key findings: value to favor doer • reduce time spent doing favors • prioritize response order & probability based on profile of requester • increase likelihood of payback value to connector • validate requester & quality of connection • reduce time of making introduction • tangible benefit from fulfilled favors (what is it? % of transaction? explore) • status in network • goodwill (can this be distributed?) value to requester • obvious reasons
  110. 110. challenges: trust barrier • possible solutions: – aggregate existing social data (#/type connections, online behavior) – user scores, reviews, ratings, rankings NEXT STEP: ENGINEER TO DESIGN FUNCTIONALITY (KEY RESOURCE) monetizing behavior • from customer discovery, we learned that FAVORS ≠ SERVICES I do / receive for other reasons: -Goodwill / karma -Social expectation I get paid / I’m willing to pay NEXT STEP: EXPERTISE IN BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY (KEY RESOURCE)
  111. 111. favor, as we define it….. • high value • would require the receiver to go through extraneous effort to achieve without the doer • allows access to otherwise inaccessible areas of life – contacts (business & social) – services & products – information & expertise …..but how do we differentiate ourselves?
  112. 112. Why people give and receive favors? Who? Why? Benefit? Why Online? Person in need of a favor No other way to get “it” done Extended network to areas not available before My direct network is limited (1st degree) Delivering a favor for a cause Monetize favor for a belief I hold Philanthropy Larger market to raise awareness Delivering a favor for a trade Monetize favor for myself Created value on something that only had value to holder Create a bidding/auction market where none currently exists Delivering a favor to help others Feel good about myself Extended network to areas not available before Reach those outside my network Delivering a favor for self gratification Raise my profile and status Self serving; serve the individuals ego Express my status to others visually

  117. 117. what they miss (if we had more time…) • scale – TEST SOLUTIONS: build an app, partner, disrupt • not all favors are equal – TEST SOLUTIONS: rank, rate, monetize; incentivize doer & not just requester • high-end is very small segment – TEST SOLUTIONS: broad segment (everyone online with a LinkedIn & facebook profile) • value to connectors as a segment – TEST SOLUTIONS: rank, rate, monetize; incentivize connector; test value of status
  118. 118. problems/issues that still need to be addressed • incentives – best way to attract customers to use – how do we incentivize givers to connect with receivers? • moving a behavior from an offline to an online – gain trust of users – maintain security and intimacy of behavior – associate emotion and reaction in a virtual world • over saturation – integrate with other online platforms – leverage existing networks/platforms/user base
