So now that I’ve committed to doing this I need to come up with an idea that can be easily implemented. I’ve been disappointed with music discovery services or features so I’m going to build my own based on the premise that all of these recommendations are made by real people, not algorithms, not ‘people who bought this also bought that’. I’m not going to focus much on market research and I’m not going to search to see if my idea is already implemented, I’m just going to go for it.
My Startup Weekend Idea: Handcrafted Music Recommendations
Recommend your favourite music, receive recommendations based on your favourite music.
How could I monetize this idea? Adwords, Amazon Affilate and iTunes downloads all seem like viable options with enough traffic.
Now, to get to work.
