The good news is that every single user of RequirementONE has the option of submitting templates to the Solution Store for approval. There is also great exposure to the community since templates in the Solution Store will be available to thousands of potential users every month so if you create some high quality content it could result in a nice revenue stream for you.
How does the business model work?
The business model for the Solution Store is a 80 / 20 split so you get 80% of the gross revenue that your template(s) turn over and we take 20% for facilitating the Solution Store and promoting the RequirementONE platform and Solution Store.
The quality of your templates as well as their general appeal will help determine the success of your submissions. Your revenue will accumulate over time and we will process payouts on a monthly basis (when your balance passes $100) and we will make a bank or PayPal transfer to an account of your choice.
Can I tell anyone about my templates?
Absolutely, we encourage you to do so! As part of the template submission process an article is created where you can write about your content. You can share a link to this article on your blog, newsletter, twitter or anywhere else you like. In addition you can also become an affiliate (every RequirementONE user automatically is - look under your user profile) and for every customer you send our way you earn a recurring commission on their project license (yep that's right) in addition to the revenue you get from your own template(s).
What kind of content can I submit?
You can currently create the following type of templates and shape them for a particular type of project or for general purpose usage before you submit them to the Solution Store:
Project plans are the foundation for data in the Planning App.
A project plan is a traditional work break-down structure (WBS) of tasks, activities and milestones.
Specifications are the foundation for data in the Specification App.
A specification is a document that contains a table of contents (hierarchy of sections just like you would have in a Word document) that will provide the structure of the specification.
In addition you can add records (typically requirements, policies, use cases or tests) to your specification that would be useful.
You can decide to provide just the table of contents or your can populate the template with data records as well.
In addition we also recommend that you add one or more custom fields for your specification such as:
- Priority (e.g. nice to have, must have)
- Life-cycle (e.g. new, approved)
- Responsible person
These fields will in turn be shown for every record added to the particular specification.
In addition you can also add categories for notes and attachments as you see fit.
Questionnaires are the foundation for data in the Feedback App.
A questionnaire is a standard web form with question and answer fields. The answer fields are either text fields or predefined drop down lists.
Questionnaires can be distributed via a unique URL to end users, for use by the project team in workshops or included directly in a product for feedback.
Submissions that are received can be processed and requirements or issues can be created or linked with full traceability.
