Designing for virality?

Corstian

Do you try to design your SaaS business to have a viral factor? If so:

  • How did you achieve spread?
  • What basic reproduction number have you achieved? Do you measure it?
  • Do you design new features for virality, if so, what techniques do you use?
  • Is going viral one of your primary goals?

    Um, this really isn’t possible. You would have to be able to predicate trends and fads to a degree that you can actually create them.

      What if you enable end users to use certain functionality in a viral way? Like a referral system which actually works?

        Sort of like DropBox when it came out?

                @Corstian glad it was helpful! I also found it pretty insightful and wouldn't have even looked for it if it weren't for your posting, so, thank you! 🙂
