Betterific’s First Product Launch!

My fellow Betterificers, tomorrow, Friday July 17th, will be a special day. Why, you ask? Because with the help of our friends over at Dormify, for the first time ever, a Betterif has been transformed from an online idea to a consumer product, and will be featured on the Today Show!

The product, more specifically, solves a problem faced by many around the world. For too long, people have fumbled with fitted bed sheets, spending too much time questioning which corner goes where and not enough time actually making the bed. If there was a simple label or graphic on the sheet illustrating the proper way to fit it, countless time could be saved. And finally, thanks to the diligence of the Betterific team and the quality of the idea, Dormify has begun to produce and sell the product (which can be purchased here).

The improved fitted bed sheet represents one of the first tangible products to come from the Betterific labs, and if you would like to see one of your ideas possibly come to fruition, then join Betterific here. We’re always on the lookout for innovative souls to keep our innovation train chugging along.

Big News!

About a week ago, the host of the Hobson & Holtz Report, a man named Shel Holtz, interviewed Betterific co-founder Micha Weinblatt and posted the interview in podcast form on their website!

The report itself, described as a “weekly commentary on public relations and technology,” has a strong online presence and enabled listeners to hear the story surrounding the creation of Betterific. The podcast itself makes for some great listening, and the accompanying article goes into some detail about Mr. Weinblatt’s past experiences in entrepreneurship.

Here’s the link to the page: http://forimmediaterelease.biz/index.php?/weblog/comments/fir_interview_betterific_co_founder_micha_weinblatt

And remember to share with friends, family, and everyone!

The pudgy white vans of the US postal service have been a common sight in communities across America for years, and whether you live in big cities or rural towns, chances are you’ve probably seen them quite a few times. The postal service, while reaching its modern form in the early 70’s, has existed in various forms since the time of Ben Franklin and the founding fathers. Generations of Americans have required the mail to be both sent and delivered in a timely and efficient fashion, and whether the letters came on horseback or from car, legions of mailmen have diligently carried out this purpose expertly and with a level of finesse that only a mailman could manage.

But this organization surely must be steeped in conservatism and bureaucratic red tape, right? It must be almost impossible to actually be able to implement new, innovative, and fresh ideas, no?

Shows an interesting path that the USPS is taking, and seems uncannily like an idea that you could find on Betterific’s web page. By placing an advertisement on the side of a USPS truck, it exposes the content to whoever has mail delivered to them. In a setting like New York City, for example, that impact is multiplied by the hundreds, if not thousands, of people who glance at the truck on any given day. It’s a bold and innovative way of advertising, and if an organization like the postal service could be brought on to help, imagine the innovative possibilities that lay in the future. It’s all about content and distribution, and it looks like the USPS has caught on.

Happy innovating!
