What barriers have hindered the success of your project to date? How do you plan to overcome these and other challenges as you grow your solution?
The major barriers are: 1. Understanding the concept fully by the people. 2. Spreading the message far and wide and 3. Financing.
We are making changes and realized that what we had was not enough, we tweaked our product but still find it less compared to the new innovative idea that we have thought upon. The challenge will now be financing and spreading the product and solution far and wide and for which some heavy duty advertising and/or marketing is needed.
How do you see the information-technology and media sectors shifting over the next decade? How will your solution adapt to and/or drive that changing environment?
By creating multiple verticals to offer old and new technology platforms. From radio to the latest mobile and visual channels. The future lies in the visual impact, more than the word and audio.
Failure is not always an option. If your solution fails to gain traction in the next two years, what other applications of the idea could you explore?
Every mother feels their baby to be the best and most unusual, so is the case with people bringing their new ideas into the open. We cannot rule out failure, it is part of everything, whether we like it or not. The idea is to take the entire concept into visual format or bring in different set of innovative ideas depending on the then current technology and society.
Expand on your selections, explaining how you will sustain funding
Unique concept of advertising is the primary source of funding and another source is to explore by syndication, selling and marketing distribution rights to other channels and technology. And the third option will be needed that is still being explored.
