If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, so be sure to set the stage for success with these five easy yet impactfull steps for using Ideanote like a Pro – Or as we like to call them, Ideanote hacks
Why leave anything to chance when you have all the resources you will ever need to become successful with Ideanote right here? That’s right. I got you, bro.
Key action: Identity at least one person to act on ideas before you start collecting
Ask yourself who’s available to act on the ideas once they start flowing in. Ideanote gives you the structure you need to collect, develop and act, but only you know which of your people are right for the role to carry the ideas into the world.
Key action: Find two or more people to help you get things rolling by being active on your Space early on
If I could recommend just one powerful Ideanote hack, this would be it. And all you have to do is ask a handful of people to get on your Space early and help get the ball rolling. Maybe a few good colleagues? Have them add ideas, while also interacting with the ideas of others once they start flowing in. This creates a sense of social familiarity and goes a long way in getting everyone off to a good start.
Key action: Be sure to interact with the ideas you collect, i.e. liking, commenting etc.
Just like your early adopters in previous tip, you as the Space owner also need to interact with people and their ideas. In the end, it’s interaction and collaboration that sparks the creativity that drives real innovation. Also, showing appreciation for people sharing their thoughts, goes a long way in getting them to come back. Now that’s an Ideanote hack
Key action: Introduce missions regularly by creating new ones or inviting others to do so
You’ll want to keep things intersting, so challenge your people by creating new missions regularly. Something new once a week is a good place to start. You can also invite others to create missions that meets their specific innovation needs. The more, the merrier!
Key action: Share your collaborative successes as a team as often as you can
Once you’ve collected, developed and acted on your first idea, it’s a good move to share the success far and wide. Tell the story of a succesful idea in an email or at a meeting. This shows people that you’re listening to them, willing to act on their ideas, and that you appreciate their input.
Now get out there and flaunt your success. I’ll be cheering for you all the way!
