1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation came to life when…
I was working as a virtual assistant and trying to manage my growing business. I was using several software applications that only did part of the job, and others did too much. It was time-consuming and frustrating, so I decided to build software for people directly in my industry, professional women who work from home.
2. WHAT & HOW
The purpose of this innovation is to…
My company, DigitalSorbet, is developing a world-first business management tool to help professional women launch an online business and work from home while caring for their family.
It does this by…
Providing them with all the tools required to run an online business. CRM, tasks, file sharing, online collaboration, time-tracking, invoice, payments and feedback.
3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS
This innovation improves on what came before because…
There has been nothing like this done before and we’re targeting a very niche industry that has been largely ignored.
The benefits to the customer/end-user include…
- Streamline business processes
- Work from anywhere with an Internet connection
- Get online quickly and easily
- Collaborate online with your client(s)
- Everything is stored in one place
- Get paid online
- Run a 100% paperless enterprise
- Completely secure
4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
In the past, this problem was solved by…
There are HOARDS of professional and highly skilled women out there in the world that can’t work due to caring for children. This hasn’t been solved before. It’s still a big problem.
Its predecessors/competitors include…
Currently people are offering ‘back to work’ training, or ‘flexible’ work environments that don’t even come close to what we can offer!
5. TARGET MARKET
This innovation is made for…
Professional mums/parents/women who are unable to continue working the 9-to-5 due to caring for children.
6. DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY
It is available for sale through…
DigitalSorbet is available through monthly subscription, only $30/month, at www.digitalsorbet.com.
Our marketing strategy is to…
Advertising on work-at-home mum’s websites, information packs in local hospitals, baby and child expos, advertising on job websites like Seek.com.au and MyCareer.com.au.
