One of the most exciting developments in early (private) beta testing went as follows. Within days of BETA v2 going live, some of our beta users asked: “Are you guys planning to sell grids in the app as I would readily pay for a grid on X?” – concurrent with others asking “Hey, we would love to transfer our IP on X into a Method Grid … might we be able to sell it on your app?”.
At the end of these exchanges, our heads were fizzing with the potential opportunities to marry such users together. Now … these thoughts are still nascent but we know that the provision of a methodology store would be of huge benefit to many users. Part of the (public) beta phase will be to listen to as many producers/consumers as possible to understand how we best facilitate this. Early (simple) thoughts are for the provision of a commission-based, single purchase model but we are keen to hear wider thoughts on this.
We also see such a store being a great place for the provision of value-adding, free resources. On which note, this blog heralds the new feature announcement of our initial store offering. Maybe see it, for now, as a small coffee stand at your independent market dishing out free flat whites … whereas down the line we hope to host a whole street of funky, independent traders. Put another way, please expect to see this new store feature evolve; our first effort is more a very simple demonstration (with one free example).
