First impression: what you call “packaging opportunities”is all about building relationships. Your new relationship building paradigm – Web Detailing — is difficult for me to get my mind around from a business perspective because it is so conceptual. When we first started talking it sounded like you were headed toward the development of a product or tool set. Now it seems what you’re talking about a service that integrates many existing products — sort of a web experience integrator, which, to over simplify, is merely effective web interactive design — determine what the user wants/needs to do and make that easy to do; provide a context for the locating of information, the purchasing

of a book, the learning process…

Your Packaged Programs are metaphors that an interactive designer might employ to provide his/her target audience (company internal or general public) with that context and provide his/her media designer with inspiration for the visual treatment.

Your Value Exchange Programs are the incentives for click through.

And your Visitor Tools represent the leveraging of existing technology in your development strategy. (I heard yesterday about a new piece of software that allows the user to place electronic sticky notes or post its on a site. Don’t really get how it works yet, but it also fits your relationship building model.)

 

Anyway, just my way of saying that I think I get the kernal of your thinking, but I’m not sure what business opportunity it represents. In other words, every Web page developer should be thinking about this stuff with every individual page s/he creates. But most page building endeavors, like an individual magazine or television show, are considered self-contained experiences, with the exception of the “linking” model, which typically provides no context, just a thread for browsing.

So what is the product or service the Web Detailer offers?

Have a good day.

Dave

 

 

I need the proper words.

Once we start doing what we do….i need to point and say that site was done by a really good web detailer…..this site was not.

We should start with the Web Site Owner…right now he needs something that makes a difference (that makes him different

 

DD. CYBERTOWN HUNT SCHEDULED

In June there will be the Great Morph Hunt contest with up to $5,000 in prizes

available. This scavenger hunt will take you across Cybertown; you’ll have to play

in at least 6 of the 8 weeks to win one of the grand prizes. Don’t worry though,

weekly prizes will also be given away.

Finally got to Draft 4. Your preface touched on a lot of the issues I

have with the scope of what you are up to. I’m reminded of how my

scriptwriting instructors kept harping on how you have to be able to

make your pitch in three concise sentences. I find myself trying to

craft those three sentences for myself. I felt closest to the core on

page 10 when I read, “We are Web Production Packagers. Our direct

clients are Web Detailers. Our indirect clients are web site owners. Our

programs target Web Site Visitors. We exist in a Web World with other

people whose roles can be affected by what we do.” Still a little

“heady,” but I begin to get the idea. It’s not an inventor role as much

as it is a broker or facilitator role. But enough about my

understanding or lack there of. I want to provide you with some

constructive input.

 

Here’s my two cents, and that’s about what it’s worth.

 

I need this boiled down. The outline is daunting and all over the map.

Some entries are clearly product/service related, some seem theoretical

in nature; an intellectual treatise on the nature/potential of the web.

The gist of what you seem to be saying is that the Internet is a

boundless and maddening world of information and activities; we need

tour guides. These guides can put together standard tours, custom

tours, prepackaged tours, special events, tours for the whole family,

adults only tours, educational tours, playful tours, self-directed

tours, guided tours, etc. These tours would be designed by cyber guides

or Web Detailers as you call them based on relationships established by

Caris Tours. Am I close? If so, I think your language could be that

simple and make your point.

 

What’s the business model. There are so many potential value exchange

arrangements for something like this that I can hardly begin to

speculate on the model you are headed toward. You’re planning on

bringing together tourists and destinations on the Web. Who will pay

whom when?

 

What’s the business plan? What you are getting at is an interesting

variation of a theme I’ve heard a lot lately. A guy at work just took a

couple of us behind closed doors and shared an idea he thinks is going

to make us all rich that is along these lines but in a very targeted

market. A broker/facilitator thing for business to business. The idea

of bringing order to the chaos is popular right now. Every company we

talk to about an e-commerce implementation says they want to be a

Portal. We have to convince them to stick to what they are good at and

think about cyber relationships they can form to get people to their

sites. Web only brands are experiencing a great deal of success on the

Web–Amazon, e-toy, etc. Brick and mortar brands need to think about

the types of relationships they have built with their customers and

partners on the street and what the proper model is for building similar

relationships in space. Is the key associating with a particular space

(AOL) or community (I-Village)? Or is it pushing your site to your

existiung client base as another sales channel for capturing brand

loyalty? I don’t have a clue.

 

Mundane, I know, but now that I’ve read the “heady” stuff, I’d very much

like to see the Synopsis-Business Plan-Business Model approach spelled

 

Am being of any help? Do I just not get it? Am I just a cold shower on

hot idea? Let me know if you’d like me to keep thinking about this or

if you’d prefer I just butt out.

 

Regards,

Dave
