10 ideas for Buffer

I’ve admired Buffer ever since I heard about their company’s values. I’ve even applied there, though I didn’t make the cut.

Still, that hasn’t deterred me from still following and using their product.

Here are 10 ideas for Buffer

  1. Start a vlog about what it’s like to work at Buffer, what you do all day
  2. Create a remote work conference
  3. Sell a buffer mug (everyone loves coffee)
  4. Write a book about Buffer
  5. Podcast on remote work
  6. Crowdsource a blog post (let the community create and write it)
  7. Support a cause/charity
  8. Crowdsource a new product idea/feature
  9. Contest to join buffer retreat
  10. Don’t use slack for 1 day

10 ideas a day

I haven’t written on here in a while (my bad). I’m working on a new project and it’s consuming all my time outside of work.

Now, let me stop trying to make excuses and get to the point of this post.

I’m going to try something new. I was reading Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss and saw something from James Altucher about coming up with 10 ideas per day.

I want to do this and come up with 10 ideas for businesses I like.

I won’t be doing this every single day, but I want to try to get a list done and sent to the company at least 3 times per week. That’s just 30 ideas!

The point is for this to be a creative exercise and to share the ideas. An idea is nothing until it’s acted upon. I’ll be happy if they use my ideas, not mad that they “stole my idea”.

If you want more, here’s James’s article on how to become an idea machine.
