“Let’s fucking do it”

11Oct10

“Let’s fucking do it” could have been the motto of the past week-end at Startup Weekend Paris. I’m really amazed at how much work has been done in our team during this week end and how much energy has been burnt🙂

Qualifeed

So, we released Qualifeed yesterday. In this really really early version, Qualifeed will help you “master your top tweets”: you will get the list of your 10 top tweets based on their actual audience (your followers + the followers of your retweeters). Also, we’ll calculate for you a “Qualifeed score” based on the impact of some actions (if the users have clicked your included bitly URL for example).
As a bonus, you will also get :

  • a pretty graph showing the evolution of your followers
  • a Facebook integration allowing Qualifeed to track the evolution of your fans on some of your pages

Grand vision

Unfortunately, the final pitch didn’t work so well for us, but here is the Grand Vision of Qualifeed.
There are a number of websites already positionned on the “Twitter statistics” stuff (Klout.com or twitteranalyzer.com for example). Maybe we’ll add this kind of number computations or graphs in the future but it’s not our core business. Our core business is about helping companies, politics and community managers in their search of what’s working and what’s not, and, help them track the creation of value based on their social activity.

Our vision is to provide solutions of Social Influence Management and Social Influence Optimization to help trademarks, community managers, politicians, etc. to measure and continuously improve the ROI (Return of Investissement) of their social campaigns. The first step will be to provide a Social Activity Dashboard for our targeting customers.

Future ?

We’re currently discussing who will continue on the project and who will not. And also, how to reach some VCs and Business Angels. In the meantime, we’ll continue consolidating the actual app and its infrastructure (which had some scaling problems yesterday night, please excuse us).

I really want to thank all my teammates that made this week end a fabulous experience. I hardly recommend to anybody who is interesting in the startup world to participate to a Startup Weekend. There are several around the globe and I will certainly organize one in Strasbourg early 2011.

Tech note for the geeks

Qualifeed has been developped with Ruby on Rails and MongoDB. It has helped us make a webapp a reality in a week end and it helped us save a lot of sleeping hours.
