Ten Times the Effort


A reply to one of my posts on radar.techcabal.com says I should try and generate 10 ideas a day so they are!!!

1. A Nigerian art marketplace (eBay for art)

A joint place for artists to display and auction their art. Focused on beautiful visuals and art promotion.

2. A marketplace for artisans (sort of like Etsy.com)

A place where the numerous people that make bags, shoes, clothes, beads, jewelry e.t.c. can put them up for sale.

3. Online gadget repair.

State the problem, state your address, it is picked up by DHL, shipped to us, we fix it, ship it back

4. Small Scale Cinemas.

Sort of like the football viewing centers, mainly focused on Nollywood movies.

View movies at say N100. New movies every week

5. A Network of football viewing centers.

A network of football viewing centers. They’ll sell season tickets and users will be able to watch at any branch.

The season tickets can be for all matches, matches of a single team or a single competition.

6. Places… The next big social network

Think of a mashup between Instagram and Foursquare. All pictures must be geolocated.

Users can not only follow other users (like Instagram) but also follow a particular location. See all pictures taken at your faculty building, or within your house, or at your office.

Places can be reviewed, see a timeline of the pictures for a visual progression of that particular place.

A hook into google maps API so all the pictures can be seen on google maps.

7. Food teleportation

Traveling and don’t want to carry that bag of rice?

Drop it at a rice seller near you and pick up another bag at your destination. For a small fee of course.

8. BuShare (Bus-Sharing)

Most of our long distance travel is by bus. So this app will allow bus drivers register their route and time of departure. People then book the bus and their pick up point(must be along the route). The app could even get filling stations to act as pickup points.

No more waiting at parks, no more wasting of time. Simple an effective.

9. Hunger No Longer.

**Disclaimer:**This is as a result of starving myself since morning.

If you have been hungry and started recalling all the times you wasted food, this will be the solution.

Think of it as a food bank account. When you have excess food, you call us, we pick up some extra food stuff of yours. When you’ve run out of food stuff, you can decide to withdraw from your account with us.

This is also a viable option if you think that the price of a certain food commodity is going to go up soon.

10. Marketplace for influencers.

For people that need publicity but do not know who to contact.

A place where influencers can put up links to their social media profiles, the demographics they interact with, and the topics they cover.

Users will also be able to review the publicity they gained from their services.


I’m sure some of those ideas are cool, some funny, and most are probably crap. However, I’m really happy to have gotten TEN!

Whatever your reaction to them, please let me know in the comments.
