So I finally decided to wrap up all my wierd mockups (usually created during various mind situations) into a category and use a nice button to form the Mockups Zone.
Yeah there's not much now - but I hope I can find the time to upload more concept that currently just lie on my Onenote tabs.
But anyway, let's first give light to one of the oldies, which was first posted on SkypeJournal a year ago...(thanks again for posting it, Stuart).
It's the PodCoupon trick:
- Subscribe to Podcoupons channels (audio coupond, 30 sec like jingles).
- Load them to your iPod or mobile skype (when...?)
- Play to the seller and redeem your discount :)
- Ah, share with friends of course.
It's a fun-thing, don't think I assume people would adopt it. But anyway, I was thinking maybe it could inject some freshness to both sides of the equation.
Advertisers might gain a wider distribution for coupons, relying on the viral effect that Skype, RSS and posdcasts have, stirring them from the old boring concept of paper image.
Consumers might just find it as a cool new trendy digital lifestyle "see me" stuff. Who knows...but it does take something from the experience of ringtones - as people express themselves through sounds and music, while getting the public attention.
Can anyone think of specific retail segments where it might be cool? Probably anything with brands I guess (clothing, perfumes, underwear).
Drop your ideas :)
