How I Built Collectiboard In 24 Hours (Part II)

Collectiboard

UPDATE: I was able to embed the actual presentation within this blog post. Please note that I will be editing this post by 7/13 to include detailed notes in preparation for DrupalCamp LA, so that everyone will be able to follow my presentation as if you were actually there.

Today I'll be attending DrupalCamp LA 2013, and will be one of the presenters! My presentation will be called "How I Built Collectiboard in 24 Hours (Part II)", and will be from 5 - 6pm. This blog post will serve as the permanent link for the presentation, and I might update it afterwards with more information as I see fit...

Feel free to browse Part I of this presentation before browsing this one. Here we go with Part II!

 

 

Here are the notes for each slide:

Slide 0 just shows the Collectiboard logo. Note that the presentation itself was also built by a startup comapny called Prezi. They enable anyone to build mindblowing presentations.

Slide 1 shows a brief summary from Part I of the presentation done on 1/25 for SANDcamp. It talks about ThemeSnap, why their PinBoard theme rocks & the concept of a "Replacement CTO".

Slide 2 shows the current challenges that I'm going through with Collectiboard. The story about Pinterest having 200 users after 4 months is from TechCrunch. An example of how I solved a really tough bug can be found in ThemeSnap.

Slide 3 talks about some strategies that I'm using for Collectiboard. The part about Salman Khan creating 3,000 videos for Khan Academy is from Forbes. The part about Jeremy Stoppelman creating 1,000 critiques for Yelp is from Fast Company.

Slide 4 shows Collectiboard's current main competitor. For strategic reasons, I have not included direct links to any competitors.

Slide 5 shows the power of Google in trying to figure out the approximate size of a website. Just Google "site:website.com" to see its approximate total number of content within that website.

Slide 6 continues with a screenshot of the approximate size of Collectiboard's main competition by Googling "site:picollecta.com".

Slide 7 shows a recent screenshot of Collectiboard's traffic numbers.

Slide 8 shows a recent screenshot of the traffic numbers for Collectiboard's main competitor.

Slide 9 shows a recent graph of Pinterest's traffic numbers.

Slide 10 shows a recent graph of traffic numbers for a well-known Pinterest clone #1, Manteresting.

Slide 11 shows a recent graph of traffic numbers for a well-known Pinterest clone #2, Pinspire.

Slide 12 shows a recent graph of traffic numbers for a well-known Pinterest clone #3, Pinstyle.
