Prompted by a review discussion with https://frontier.pioneer.app/u/andrew-miit.co
Would love to know ... if you could implement a kind of viral marketing strategy to gain traction across platforms? Like the ice bucket challenge etc but for Touchgram
This made me think a bit creatively about what could be done as a challenge with Touchgram but also I think is an interesting exercise for Pioneers in general - could you have an ice bucket challenge as a marketing activity?
Touchgram Competitive Puzzle Crafting Challenge
One early adopter market I'm chasing is creative people who are reasonably savvy using tech so want a challenge for both their technical and creative ego.
So I'm thinking of something like a timed puzzle message competition. Each person gets a short time to make a Touchgram message, which has some kind of final reveal in the content. Then the next person has to solve the puzzle. Judging could include artistic merit as well as technical complexity.
It emphasises the ability to build complex interactive experiences with Touchgram.
The only thing stopping me doing this right now is the View Source feature which means you can see how another person's Touchgram works. The Pro Tools feature due in May will allow suppressing this.
It might also be worth waiting until there's a more general way to share winning Touchgrams beyond people sending them as one-one messages.
The Recording issue
This applies to Touchgram but also to a lot of other apps. I'd be interested to hear if people have considered this as an impediment to users making videos of their experience.
There's a technical issue here of recording screens - that may take a bit of work to make it easy for people to generate their competitive TikTok or YT videos.
