Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

RE: Creating OPT-IN database for B2B


Tanishq,

From my yesterday's email ( " Free Listing " page write-up ) , you must have noticed that I have conceived of two separate Registration pages , viz:

> for FREE LISTING        ( Bare Min Form )

> for Regular Registration ( Full Form )


Very broadly speaking , the benefits being offered to subscribers of these 2 levels are as follows :

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What can I get from this site ?...... FREE LISTING.............. FREE FULL Registration.............PAID Subscription

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Will I receive messages blasted
  by PAID subscribers ?..................... Yes................................... Yes....................................Yes

* Can I respond to messages ,

  > Received as Emails..................... Yes..................................... Yes .................................... Yes

  > Shown on page,
    " Hoarding of the World " ? ........... Yes........................................Yes...................................Yes

  > Shown on page,
    " Message Search " ?...................... Yes.......................................Yes .................................... Yes


*  Can I compose Message ?.............   NO.......................... Only ONE message......................... Any Number

*  Can I blast a Message  ?...............   NO ......................... Only to 1000 Cos(Joining Bonus )....  Any Number

*  Can I use Re-Charge A/c page ?...... NO...........................    Yes .......................................    Of Course

*  Will I get Re-Charge Bonus ?...........NO.............................   Yes........................................   Of Course

*  Can I see My Campaign Feedback ?... NO...........................   NO............................................Of Course

*  Can I see " Campaign Analytics " ?
   ( based on Netcore Dashboard ).......  NO............................  NO............................................Of Course
   ( yet to be developed )

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By a copy of this email , I am asking my colleague Kailas , to email to you , U/I and Page Write-ups for pages ,

Hoarding of the World

Message Search

Both of these are yet to be developed by Shuklendu's team

Does this tabulation adequately describe , the BENEFITS that the FREE LISTING offers ?

If you agree , then this ( Tabulation ) can itself be made into a separate page on B2B , called :

" WHAT IS IN IT FOR ME ? "

Dear Hemenji - It's been pleasure.

Here are my thoughts:

I would like to be part of your list if I see value in what you are going to send me which is not coming out from the 2 options given below. Can we think on the lines of what I will receive and will help me in my business. Also 1000 joining bonus (people might not understand how useful your credit s are unless they are explained about it)

You will recall that , during our discussions , I mentioned re our plan to introduce a JOINING BONUS of 1000 Free emails, as an incentive for visitors to sign-up ( Register )

Now , I propose that , on our SUBSCRIBER REGISTRATION page , we add the following additional WRITE-UP , just ABOVE the Registration Form :

Dear Visitor,


Before starting to fill-up the Form below , please select one of the following Options


( * ) ….. Please treat me as a FREE SUBSCRIBER and add my details to your RECIPIENT DATABASE , to enable me to “ Receive “ messages from
            Your other PAID SUBSCRIBERS


( * )…… Please credit my Account with 1,000 FREE emails ( JOINING BONUS ) , to enable me to send out ONE marketing message , as a trial. I
            understand that I have NO OBLIGATION what-so-ever , to become a PAID subscriber later on , although I will receive messages



I feel , such an intervention , will serve at least some purpose , towards OPT In, and is , comparatively simpler to do

Shuklendu,

This email from Gopinath is a " Pointer "

He wants to make an offer to only Chennai-based companies

In each city , there will be individuals ( self-employed ) or small businesses , who want to offer their products / services , to other businesses in their OWN CITY - irrespective of the Industry Sectors

Eg :

>  Pinto wants to offer Security Services to businesses in Mumbai only

>  Mhatre wants to offer Courier Services to businesses in Kolkata only

>  Raghu wants to offer Broadband Services to businesses in Delhi only

It just does NOT matter , as to which Industry Sector those companies are operating in

LOCATION is the only governing criteria for such LOCAL businesses

The way , our BLAST MESSAGE page is structured today , it is NOT possible for such local businesses to select ALL businesses operating within a given city, quickly

They would need to select , one Industry after another ( 52 times ) , and their city of choice ( 52 times ) , to be able to send their message !

Can we do something to make it easy for targeting ALL companies in a given city ?

RE-CHARGE BONUS


Shuklendu,


This is continuation of our yesterday's debate

Yesterday , we talked of " JOINING  BONUS " of 100 emails ( or 1000 emails )

This initial FREE TRIAL offer is to get more companies to register and experiment , hoping that at least 20 % ( 1 in 5 ) , would , subsequently Re-Charge their accounts and become permanent users

We would get AUTHENTIC DATABASE of recipient companies

Then there is another angle to this JOINING BONUS :

Obviously , those who register to take advantage of out FREE TRIAL offer , would , most certainly compose some Marketing Message and blast it to some 1,000 recipient companies

As per Netcore Dashboard , the " OPEN " rate for Aqua Foundation was , approx 10 %

If this applies to those FREE TRIAL joinees , then we can expect that 100 ( out of those 1000 ) recipient companies will OPEN that message and become aware of B2B service !

This is much better than , we ourselves , sending out PROMO emails ! Coming from an actual USER / SUBSCRIBER of B2B , this would be far more convincing ! A third party opinion !

Next thing :

When some of these FREE TRIAL-walas , come back to " Re-Charge " their A/C , it would be in our interest to get them to make LARGE payment instead of a SMALL payment

We need to provide them with an incentive for doing so

That could be done by giving them RE-CHARGE BONUS , in the form of additional FREE emails, on a sliding scale

The following proposed Tabulation will make it clear :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No of Emails...    Rs(Std).....    Re-Charge Bonus Emails............% Bonus...........Bonus Worth ( Rs )
                                             offered                                 ( no of emails )   ( We pay to Netcore )
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*  2500..........  500..............  NIL.......................................  NIL................  NIL

*  5000...........1000..............  NIL.........................................NIL..................NIL

*  10,000.......  2000............  1,000....................................   10 %...............65
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

15,000......   3,000............. 1500......................................  10 %..............97.5

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*  20,000.......  4,000.............3,000.....................................   15 %..............195

*  40,000........ 8,000............  8,000.......................................20 %.............  520

*  80,000....... 16,000............ 20,000......................................25 %..............1,300

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last column shows what we will be paying Netcore for those ADDITIONAL FREE BONUS emails

Of course , if " No of Email Selected " lies in between , then the BONUS % of the lower slab should apply

Eg :

If a user selects 15,000 emails ( = Rs 3,000 ) , then he gets 10 % bonus emails = 1500 email free

If you agree ( with whatever modification that you suggest ) to this proposal , then , for each Subscriber , we will need to maintain two separate Databases , to be called ;


STANDARD EMAIL ACCOUNT


BONUS EMAIL ACCOUNT ( irrespective of whether it is JOINING bonus or it is RE-CHARGE bonus )


Obviously , there will be corresponding separate COUNTERS as well

As a policy , our software will FIRST debit all email blasted to " STANDARD ACCOUNT " , and also keep decreasing the numbers in " STANDARD ACCOUNT COUNTER "

When that Counter reaches ZERO , s/w will start debiting the " BONUS EMAIL ACCOUNT ' and make corresponding reductions in " BONUS EMAIL COUNTER "

Of Course , we will need to show both of these counters on both the BLAST pages

Concept is similar to the " RESERVE TANK " for petrol that we used to have in some cars , some years back !

I remember , car coming to a sudden stop ( of course , with fuel tank needle on RED region ) , then getting down , opening the dicky and moving the lever to RESERVE TANK , to continue driving and looking out for next petro pump !

I await your comments

FW: SDK Update Required


Shuklendu,

I vaguely remember that some 2 years back , Amit Goyal ( Datawind ) had registered " My Jobs " app on Airpush but he kept dragging his feet re: pre-installing " My Jobs " on Ubislate tablets ( revenue-sharing dispute ). I stopped following him

As far as integrating " My Jobs " with Airpush SDK is concerned , I don't remember whether we ever got around doing that

In any case , a few days back , I reported to you / Nitin that ' My Jobs " has just stopped working altogether !

I uninstalled and then re-installed from play.Google but still no luck !

I wonder if you got a chance to check-out and find out what is wrong
