Well i have had an idea about a kind of website for at least 5 months now i actually made a post about it a long time ago but i feel like i can't complete this idea on my own with out the help of other people or seeing if other people think its a good idea.
So im going to stop talking about the idea and just tell you...
Ok Here is goes
Wait let me stall for a little longer
ok i think im ready...
So I have this idea for a website that has a raffle sort of theme to It. Let me explain my self better.
Have you ever seen a tv that you really wanted and you though wow wouldn't that look awesome in my living room i could show it off to my friends and watch football games on it. Well when you get up to that T.V. oh sh*t its a 1,500 dollar T.V. right away your excitement is killed and you release that the dream was nice while it lasted.
Or the other side of the story is say that you see the 1,500 dollar T.V. you have the same dream as person number one. But you have the money though you really want the T.V. you are going to be responsible and save the money so you can take your family on a nice vacation over December.
Both People really want this T.V. But they don't 100% have the availability to by this T.v.
But what Happens if they only had to spend 150 dollars and still had a chance of winning the T.v. like in a raffle?
Well Imagine this a whole store of stuff but instead of buying the full T.V., Computer, Bed ... you only had to spend 1/10th of the money So lets go back to the example of the 1,500 dollar T.v. then in this case you would only have to spend 150 dollars which each person could easily spend and had the chance to win the T.v.
This is the idea: Have a whole store full with electronics when i say store i mean website. But have it so you can buy the whole product or spend 1/10th the amount of money 2/10ths the amount of money 9/10ths the amount of money or of course just buy the whole product. And still have a chance at winning it!
Now of course there would need to be other people to raffle on the products so for example if you bought 1/10th of the product then you would need 9 other people to also buy 1/10th of the product then one person would be picked.
So your probably thinking why would anyone ever do this because people who are for a loss of better words "cocky or over confident" or just gamblers will always have it in there head that they will be the first ones picked.
Now also your probably thinking but what about for the people who are the safe ones why would they ever do it? Well its because its really only a win, win, Tie situation.
How you might wonder because it would work out say you went into 10 raffles and somehow still not get picked the odds would be way against this but its going to happen to someone. Then once you have already gone in 10 times paying 10% you automaticly "win" the product. So pretty much you can't loose you can either get a big discount on the product or pay the amount that it originally was.
So basically for the safe person with the money there would be no point of doing this because you can buy 9/10ths of the product and just wait for one other person to buy 1/10th. Now the ods are by far that the person who bought 9/10ths of the product will easily "win"! and saves 150 bucks! But there is the chance that that person will loose the so what they already had the money so the only end up spending 150 more dollars and "win" the product.
But also there are the people who have a job and at the end of each money have lets say 300 dollars left to spend one what ever they want. Now say they really want this 1,500 dollar tv each month at the end they can buy 2/10ths of the T.V. after 5 Months they will no matter what have "won" this T.V. Or in there First month they can Win this T.V. so again a win, win situation.
Also another upside of this is that you will almost for sure have all of the customers who save money on there products. meaning that anyone who "wins" before spending 10/10 percent on the product will come back again when they want another product. Meaning you will have loyal customers which is key to a successful business. Why do you think the company apple is such a good company because there are thousands of people that are so loyal to apple they will not buy a electronic unless it is from apple.
Now There is a chance that this whole raffle this is against the law cause it could be gambling though it isn't really gambling cause everyone wins therefor no gamble.
Now you may be thinking why give this idea away.
Because I am pretty sure anyone who is capable of helping me put something like this together like the software, website, getting the site known will be honest an include me in the building of this website if they do use the idea. And would not steel it because i have proof it was my idea therefor would not be good for there rep.
But what about all the people who are not advanced enough to put this idea together then i honestly dont think they could pull together the resources / people to build a website like this.
Dont mean to offend anyone with the last comment.
Well anyway if you like the idea and think it could work don't hesitate to pm me
P.s. sorry for the long post took me like 15 minuets
