Trusted animal farms and fokkers portal.

Our chickens on my instagram account

We’re bought three chickens but it was damn hard to find a good place to get them. I also remember researching a lot when we were considering a dog. There is no general portal available where you can find trusted animal farms and fokkers. It would be nice to have a single point of information where you can see who breeds animals and what the experience is with the animals they provide. This combined with an extensive database on the differences between breeds and tools to find the perfect animal match.

A certificate can be gained for the animal farmers when they have receive positive feedback from their clients. The revenue in this business model mostly comes from advertising but an e-shop with animal food and toys compliments the concept.

E-commerce window stores.

W-commerce window stores

This idea is a very viable one. The business model is to invest in brick shops in both main shopping streets and upcoming districts and fill them with goods from e-commerce stores. The goal is to create a physical presence for small-knows e-shops, create exchange points to touch, feel and see goods. Online a portal site with these trusted e-shops will be made. It increases the trust in buying online due to the trusted certificate online and physical presence offline.

The money comes from monthly fees these e-shops pay to have a presence on the portal and in these brick and mortar shops. I actually thought about it when I was thinking about the pivoting options for ZOYOKO. But the upfront investment is way too big for me.

Amytime.com delivers it anytime you want.

Everything you want, right now.

You want it and you want it now? With large e-shops offering pretty everything, the sales channels are open 24/7. Only the logistics lag a bit. What if… you could order instant delivery with anything you buy? The ultimate goal is to get a delivery at home within the shortest possible timespan. Amazon’s drone idea is not so bad. The business model could work with different monetising formulas; instant delivery, nightly deliveries, exact delivery, …  It could even be implemented with rates that behave like share prices on the stock exchange.

HouseHoldStop: The 1stopshop for all your household services. #oipd

one stop shop

The idea is e-commerce but with/for services. 1stopshop helps you in managing your contracts with (your) preferred suppliers for everything. In fact, it’s a broker service where they audit your invoices and make recommendations (once a year) so you can benefit from changed market situations without monitoring all these different areas.
To start with, you can sign up for the usual suspects of your home:

  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Water
  • Internet
  • Telecom
  • TV

After an initial intake (250 euro?), for just 1 euro per month per invoice (supplier) you outsource to 1stopshop, you can save a multitude of the amount with just saying yes to the rational recommendations we make. 1stopshop does the market research, the negotiations… All the hassle in finding the best deals is over. 1stopshop does it better you’ll ever can.

In addition to clear monetary benefits, whenever there is trouble with a supplier, 1stopshop will mediate and help you out with a smile. Don’t waste time trying to do it yourself and get frustrated, Just log into their portal, tell them, sit back and relax. Let them take care of it. They’ll contact you when, using the means you like, when the air has been cleared.

The 1stopshop portal works a bit like Coolblue where you have 1 account that can access all the contracts per service store in which new propositions by suppliers are reported about, analysed and recommended to user profiles. You can also keep track of all these services in one handy account.

Managing your household services has never been more convenient. With HouseHoldShop you can trust making the right decisions.

It’s no coincidence that @kodel also wrote a blogpost about this with pretty much the same thinking.

Buy and save or donate payment gateway. #oipd

Yesterday, I was so busy I did’t make time to add an idea. That’s why this one should be a good one, a kind one. So here it is.

For any responsible online business that handles e-payments, it would be an act of humanity just to give them customers a choice between a saving or a donation. The payment gateway solution offers it immediately. The dealer should only take into account that a percentage or fix amount of his goods will be reserved to please its customers.

Get a saving or donate for e-commerce plugin

It addresses to both the left and right brainers, as you get yourself a discount or you can help someone or organization. The perception of the brand that uses the buy and save or donate gateway will automatically improve. (No scientific research says this. It’s my guts only saying this)

Branded boxes for e-commerce. #oipd

You can compare it with sponsored placemats, but for boxes.

It’s no secret that e-commerce initiatives are popping up faster than the sun in the morning. It’s also no secret that many of those initiatives don’t reach the end of the day. The logistics part of business is for most startup e-shops a pure cost without much added value for both the e-retailer and their customer.

(publicity announcement: Except the one from our ZOYOKO shop…)

The idea of branded e-boxes is a solution that helps starting e-commerce business to get free packaging they can use, but also to other e-commerce business’ to do marketing and get their awareness and acquisition of new customers up at affordable rates to an interesting customer segment (namely people who already buy online).
