As the saying goes, change your thoughts and you change your world. And this week I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the kind of change we want to create in JellyChip so that our users can change their world.
This is an interesting concept, the idea of “what we think is how we see the world.” So I’ve been examining my own thought process to see what can be improved upon this week to help us make JellyChip the social network of the future. And I’ve come up with an exciting solution.
The basics of JellyChip are this – we’re often told that making a difference in the world is expensive and time consuming. That changing lives through charity is tiring and cumbersome. Introducing JellyChip – a platform that allows users to donate to charity for free just by using the website. By being social and answering surveys, allowing users to make a free difference and show off that free giving in the process. This is JellyChip version 2.
Yet sometimes its good to get back to the basics. What if we made JellyChip simpler? What if those clicks, taps, invites or chats impacted JellyChip in a much more direct and simple way. Such as an impact in a group context, in a crowdsourced way? So that everybody could see your contribution and that everybody could rally behind one gift. Wouldn’t it be awesome to see the community of JellyChip rally together to change the world together? I think it would be great to see the JellyChip userbase come together for a particular gift and I think the implications of this could be far reaching.
I was having a chat with one of our programmers last night and we ended the call both being very excited by the prospect of crowdsourced individual gifts. Which is funny for two grown men to be so excited so late in the night. But it prompted me to start believing the idea could work. I mean, I just want people to believe they can actually change the world with JellyChip’s power of community, but I believe this will take us there in a very real way.
So I have an idea and I think it might work. It involves us changing the way JellyChip functions though, slightly, but will create the sense of social networking that we intended to establish all along. Actually it ticks our three boxes in a super way: social networking, gamification and charity. It will be a brand new Crowdsourcing Chip and it will be in the centre of JellyChip.
Anyway, I need to develop the plans for this so it’s a short way off (and subject to change) but I’m really excited. Watch this space for more info.
