I just bought a house recently and I’m wondering what to do with my landscape at the moment — the backyard, front yard, side yard. I have ideas, but I know others would have even better ideas. I’d love to upload or add a blueprint, or dimensions, along with some photos, and let a community of creative people “have at it” and come up with some neat ideas.
Ditto for my kitchen/dining room, and bathroom (which I’d love to maybe extend).
What’s the user incentive to help plan someone’s house? Satisfaction. Getting to use creativity and impact someone’s house. Maybe a financial reward based on how much of their ideas/design were then used by the asker. Maybe if the materials the user suggests can be purchased online and an affiliate program exists for the retailer they use, then the user might be able to earn a percentage of the sale since they recommended the materials (and thus made the sale).
I’m going through the past few years of ideas that are in my moleskine notebooks. Some of the ideas are really lacking, but might give you an idea? All of these ideas are yours for the taking. Don’t forget my archive of 100+ web startup ideas.
