I have been working away on slideZing (https://slidezing.com) for the past couple of weeks and wanted to share with all of you.
slideZing is a product to help you stand out from the crowd and improve your audience engagement during large conference presentations.
The problem I am solving is that there is no simple way to engage with an audience during a conference talk. When presenting for 30-60 minutes to a large group, it is difficult to know what their questions might be or what they are interested in. slideZing solves this problem by providing the presenter with their own text number that the audience can use to send comments and questions. In addition, instead of the audience taking pictures of slides, they can request high quality images of slides delivered directly to their phones. The presenter can review all of the comments and slide requests during or after the presentation.
One simple way to think about the product is that it is like google analytics for conference presentations. Because the product works with any phone and does not require any software install, the barrier to using is very low. The simple usage will drive more feedback.
The presenter gets value because this is a unique way to interact and create an impression. They also get benefit because they will start to get feedback on the content and improved engagement from the audience.
The audience benefits because more people can ask questions and they can get high quality images without trying to zoom in from 100 feet away!
The overall product works and I plan to use during a conference this weekend (if anyone is in MN and going to Minnebar, look me up:)
There is still more to do on the site so I consider this a Beta/MVP product. As far as pricing, I am considering the following tiers:
I have not told anyone about this so IH gets the honor of being the first place I reveal it. I am definitely excited and nervous to hear what this group thinks.
If you are kind enough to provide feedback, I would be interested in:
Any other thoughts are appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
