  16. 16. Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths Weaknesses   Easy to use navigation   All-in-One – eliminates the need for users to access other applications (e.g. Facebook)   Limited setup required   Low pricing   User trust (broadcasting their location)   Needs to be keep up to date   A working prototype for something on this scale requires substantial funding   Finding the balance between having an app useful for a night out   Without taking away from the physical interaction we are trying to facilitate
  17. 17. Marketing Strategies   Advertising on and promoting via Social Media   Allowing limited beta trials the app  Increasing awareness   Promoting app development in local establishments (e.g. Posters)   Promoting application cost/features on the Internet and Social media   Captilising on the community safety message (e.g.‘Don’t Drink and Drive’)   Providing users with an easy to use cab features, gives them the incentive to‘Think twice before Driving’
  18. 18. Viability & Future direction   As the app gains popularity amongst its audience – related establishments will become interested in promoting themselves through it.   Keep cost of app to a minimum   Start small  expand later.   Limiting the development of the application to just the Brisbane region has limited costs.   After more funding/revenue, app development can expand nationally.   Implementing Menu/Ordering system for particular local bars/clubs in Brisbane.   Implementation of an auto-updating system on application.   Allowing the app to be compatible onAndroid Phones.
  19. 19. Conclusion   ‘Get a Night Life’ provides the all-in-one support system when on the go   Its integration of key services: Facebook, Google Maps, Moshtickets andYellow Cabs  Allows for users to do more in the one app   Easy to use navigation system   Its low cost of $1.98AUD increases the incentive for consumers to purchase the app.   Providing more avenues for advertising for local establishments   In the future allowing ordering via‘Get a Nightlife’   Your funding is crucial for ironing out weaknesses in our design and capitalising on strengths   “Need a Night life?
