Mobile infrastructure for people that pushed into the Street
In the search for new markets and lines of business, one must first bring existing problems from society onto the screen. To do this, I looked at the structures of communication in our societies. Anyone who has a phone can either connect with people they know, use a service such as ordering pizza, or simply surf the internet purposefully or aimlessly. These are just a few of the benefits that a mobile phone with Internet access offers.
Now you have all offers from expensive to cheap and free of charge. The palette is stacked high and with free advertising, you pay with your personal data and the way you use your mobile phone. Behind every offer there is a target group. No matter what budget you have, there is always a market for products for it. Now comes the real weak point in our society. However, this clearly shows how much a country feels committed to the well-being of all citizens.
There is a society among us that lives in the shadows and on the fringes. As in American Hollywood films, these can be found on and under bridges. In the woods and away from what a normal citizen thinks of as bourgeois life. Shoes with tattered soles where the foot is in contact with the asphalt with every step. The clothes often have colors where no one can tell if it is dirt or a new creation from a designer.
This is part of the story that surrounds us all.
What is it with these people? What opportunities are given to this human branch to take part in what is happening in the world despite the miserable circumstances. To inform oneself, to educate oneself, to get in touch with others via messenger services. To experience social channels, video messages and actions. There is nothing, that's the simple, honest and sad answer.
So it's a problem, so it can be solved. Here is my “way” of helping these people.
Above all, there is a big question of the investment and will it be possible to earn money with it in the long term? Of course you will, everything else makes no sense to say a word about it here. In the next step, one has to ask oneself whether government investors will support and promote such a project or should one just leave it alone because countries simply do not feel responsible. Otherwise there would have been steps in this direction long ago in the last 20 years. You feel stronger and understood when industry and private investors take the helm. Milestones and successes are marked there day by day. A little honey never hurts.
An infrastructure so that at the end of a society it is also possible to speak is presented here. The modular system is not new, only all means are exhausted so that it is theoretically up and running.
In a few sentences you can easily explain the whole thing. In emergency situations, authorized people approach contact points to get a robust and unlocked mobile phone. Since it is special technology, these mobile phones will not be able to be sold on the used market. So there is no need to be afraid that criminals could enrich themselves from it. After picking up a mobile phone, one gets access to the following services. Radio stream news TV YOUTUBE limited access to the World Wide Web, not all sites can be surfed on these devices. Incidentally, the next point already has a great economic interest from at least 3 global technology corporations. There is the App Store from Apple / Google Play from Google / the New App Gallery from Huawei and last but not least the Amazon Appstore. Everyone has an interest in offering their services on these mobile phones. Not that only anonymous data can be stored and evaluated here about this long-forgotten economic cycle of the lowest drawer, no, the concept envisages that investors will earn money with it in the long term.
The challenge in mobile phones for the street is not at the same limit as that of the civilian population. The streets are rougher. You would have to make similarly high demands here as the military provides. Above all, however, it will be the battery that forms the backbone here. In the end, it could end up being a toast-like sandwich design due to the large battery. But here the next trapdoor is already being planned. If you take existing devices that have established themselves and can be produced inexpensively, and simply build a super stable bumper. A super super stable bumper. Of course that would be cheap for the first generation and easy to get moving in the project at all. So after a software giant bought its license for the Neuer Markt, it's all about the nitty gritty. Who wants, should and may provide the mobile phone hardware? Inexpensive and reliable are the most important aspects from the investors' point of view. Last but not least, they will also have a say in decisions like these.
After hardware and software have everything on board so that a person can get access to spiritual enrichment or total nonsense off the street, the question is: Which services have added value for the individual cities, regions and countries. It is now known that many of these half-lost souls have strong orientation weaknesses. The Last Net is no longer available to connect with others from the cities. When used correctly, this mobile phone opens up a multitude of possibilities.
I will briefly list them here:
Contact points to be navigated to accommodation options
Contact points to find basic medical care.
Contact persons of the cities to get individual help. Both via a free call and on a messenger service, where you can communicate with city employees. Volunteers, pastors, carers or social workers can offer support for the individual directly from their workplace in the office.
Here you will find at least one of the large chat messenger services that can benefit enormously from the data obtained. For example, the company facebook, founded from a start-up, with e.g. Whatsapp Messenger. If you use an existing service, you save time and money in developing your own messenger service and, moreover, in bringing a finished, functioning product onto the market. To be fair, it is also wiser to say that it is no longer witchcraft to conjure up a messenger program out of a hat. Just look at all the existing messenger apps that are available worldwide.
Here you just have to see who potential investors are and what the other developers and engineers here think makes sense.
further in the possibilities that can be offered:
Visiting contact points to take lunch, these are the soup kitchens known today. Each country has its own social institutions that manage and organize the whole thing.
Contact points to get new / used textiles.
It sounds banal and maybe a bit surreal at first, but in my planning there is another messenger service in addition to the messenger service where all owners and users of these mobile phones for people on the street can send messages to each other. Possibly only regionally and city dependent at the beginning. Specially founded chat groups are possible. This option alone can lead to a retraining of cognitive abilities and the feeling of being part of something again. These people have long and short stories behind them. Some find their way back and others have already written off their lives. Such a mobile phone with all its services has added value for everyone.
The health aspect that like-minded people will be able to share about in similarly difficult situations is a big step forward.
Only a few services have been listed here. But a modular system always means that you can change, expand and adapt it. After the first generation has successfully achieved its goals, it can be assumed that small events for the people from the streets will be spontaneously organized in the individual cities via charities and various privately staged campaigns via e.g. social media networks. For example, someone donates 10000 in currency X and wants to give the people on the street a music concert, with food and drinks, for example. So you could reach all owners quickly via the chat system and whoever wants to come can also come to the agreed meeting point or not. In the short term, generous restaurants - snack bars or chains can also appear and organize and provide a large dinner or lunch for the people. Not just big ones, even if 2x pizzas are left over, people from the street can stand in front of the shop and send a message to the good-natured pizza baker. To name further examples, it would also be possible in this way to steer large donors of textile goods to a meeting point. The people from the street would then have a time window of 2 hours to change their clothes, either partially or completely. This means that sleeping bags and ISO mats can be supplied quickly even when winter sets in. The mobile services such as mobile doctor - dentist - mobile hygiene buses - mobile hairdresser - mobile care - mobile food distribution in severe cold -
Another point that has not yet been addressed is that you can create a small temporary job market on demand. So simple work for a reasonable period of time of 2 - 3 hours to begin with. This is of course voluntary but rewarded. As you can see and be able to read from it, there is something for everyone to do.
There are new tasks for a long-forgotten layer that lives among us. Expressed in numbers, one speaks of several 100 million worldwide. But they are all official citizens of these countries and everyone should be aware of that.
Now comes the exciting part, how the hell can you make money with such an infrastructure. Investors are excited because, as is so often the case, it is the core of every business. First of all, living on the streets doesn't mean that you don't generally have access to money. The social countries also pay these people an amount X - from.
So if you connect these mobile phones to existing financial systems - to receive money or to buy goods or services, then you are talking about small micro amounts that are credited to the banks right from the start. Let's take the example of buying goods in a grocery store, then 0.25% always goes to the card issuer, i.e. the partner bank - the cooperation partner. The cardholder doesn't pay the customer, but the grocer always pays this small amount to the bank. That's fair and lucrative for both sides, even if it doesn't look like it at first. The grocer or merchandiser saves on billing costs and administration costs for cash and the transportation of it. In the end, a large retailer can simply include the 0.25% in his calculation, so that the customer doesn't notice anything anyway. A little side note for those who weren't aware.
So you can generate guaranteed sales at the banks with a payment function on your mobile phone. That is very important to realize a project of this size. But that alone is not enough. In order to continue to be heard by investors, sooner or later there will be a payment service provider as an app / application that will find its way onto mobile phones. A small transaction is also due here in the micro area. 2 Important companies that are part of an infrastructure can already generate money to cover costs. Behind every provider of a service there is always a high number of personnel costs. If the mobile phones are now equipped with a fingerprint, password and/or eyescan, the owner can always access his money. But there are also other advantages that develop for the city administration. Cash is decreasing. As a result, fewer people need to collect your money in person. The administration is relieved and saves considerable working time, which in turn is expensive. The mental burden of personal one-off payouts is eliminated and replaced by automation. There will be fewer ATMs in the long term, and these too cost money, maintenance and repairs. Cash costs more than digital currency. The quick availability of the money makes it easier for all participants.
Up to this point it is already possible to calculate very precisely how high the income would be from buying goods.
But there are other opportunities. If a mobile phone owner takes part in individual payable work programs, one can receive additional money on the device. You no longer have to give people on the street cash. You can send people small or large amounts via NFC chip or Bluetooth. So everyone can buy more goods again. Decisive factors that have not yet been mentioned here, but will play a role today and will continue to do so for a long time to come. Is the advertising. In this case, digital advertising. There are an incredible number of models and options that can be listed. With this aspect at the latest, you have the investors on your side, because many large companies are actually listed on the stock exchange with their advertising division. Not to forget the apps that you can buy on the end devices. Here would be my plan that every cell phone owner would be credited with 20 credits per month. What and for what you can spend the 20 here in the app stores, however, must be looked through carefully. A person takes this created ID from the street into a middle-class life if he should achieve this and if this was his goal at all. In this way, the providers of the app stores have long-term customers who can also spend money in the shops again. In all stores not only in app stores. So theoretically, artificially created investors can be companies that are set up as a subsidiary of the big companies just to ultimately be present on the mobile phone and at the same time enable someone like me to promote this project.
However, there is still one problem to be solved. The electricity problem for people on the street. Every device needs this dependency. In order to solve this, many other good infrastructures have already been created that only need to be expanded or adapted.
Was it just entertainment, a product that must and should be implemented or just a model of how a young company founder can also prepare other projects for a market with all its facets.
