The Perfect eCommerce Product by +Richard Lazazzera 

"Are you ready? It’s called a Wigglington and I’ll tell you why it’s perfect:

The Wigglington has a large, growing market with little competition and a substantial, validated user base. The Wigglington is not available locally, and only available online.

It has a market validated selling price of $100 and you can purchase it from several trusted manufacturers in China for under $10 per unit.

The Wigglington won’t perish over time, however it is consumable. Consumers love it because it solves a huge pain point. Because it is consumable and in high demand, consumers are incline to having a monthly subscription for an automatic repurchase.

Order fulfillment is never a headache. The Wigglington is small… it’s tiny and hardly takes up even half a pallet of storage space. So storage at your fulfillment warehouse costs next to nothing. In addition,  because it is so small and lightweight you can easily cover the shipping cost in your selling price and remove one of the biggest reasons for shopping cart abandonment. Score!

Inventory ordering is easy to manage because the Wigglington doesn’t have any variations so you only have to manage and order one product SKU from your supplier every month. Because you only have one SKU, there will be very few mix ups when shipping to your customers, so returns will be minimal as well. It also helps that the Wigglington is very durable so it won’t likely get broken or damaged in transit.

The target consumers for the Wigglington are very comfortable making purchases online. Most of the target customer base is over the age of 18 with a credit card and disposable income. Revenues will be steady year round because the Wigglington doesn’t suffer from seasonality issues."

You've probably guess this isn't a real product... http://goo.gl/4G0RNf

5 Social Media Tips Every Startup Should Know by +Hasan Saleem 

[Article excerpt]

"Social media is often the last thing on the to-do list for most startups – there’s always seemingly something more important that takes priority (raising capital, getting clients and tweaking products/services) and it usually gets pushed to the bottom of the slush pile.

But social media is just as important, if not more, than any of those things. It is – or should be – a critical part of your overall brand. A solid social media footprint might just be enough to convince investors to throw in another round of financing – or attract the attention of clients and vendors that you never even thought of.

Startups live AND die by social media – it’s where and how they build their brand. A killer social media strategy isn’t a want; it’s a must-have, particularly if you want to differentiate your startup from the competition.

So before you go on social media aimlessly, keep these five tips in mind:

1. Develop a clear strategy. If your “strategy” consists of throwing a page up on Facebook or Twitter and just hoping you’ll get a million followers with sheer luck, think again. You need a plan – a real one, with timelines, milestones, goals and benchmarks."

An effective social media strategy should help you to:

> Identify your audience. 
> Solidify your goals. 
> Determine your social media brand. 
> Pick your medium.

Introduction

What I love: online entrepreneurship, nutrition, travel, adventure, psychology, juggling,  a good book, history, exploration

I enjoy the company of creative minds, free thinkers. I love meeting people from all over the world who know what it's like to take a chance on something.

My ideal evening is spent on a starry rooftop with my better half...the slightest breeze in the air, sipping on a bottle of Merlot, to the tunes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and my favourite Harry Connick Jr ;)
