Inspired by Freckle‘s download for freelancers, Zombie Clients, I thought I’d knock out some fast “Zombie Level” stickers for Trello.
If you have a sales board for Trello, these would be ideal to use if you sense red flags with unqualified leads as per the original Zombie Clients rankings.
Hell, it even makes throwing a level 4 on a lead almost enjoyable.
You can also use these for idea validation, to weed out ideas or projects that might suck up time and energy for risky returns.
Q1: Is there a clear need for this particular product to exist amongst all the products already out there?
If not, it’s a level 1 zombie idea.
Q2: Is it actionable right now?
If you need to learn something or hire someone it’s a zombie level 2.
Q3: Is it something you can finish in a few weeks?
If not, we’re looking at a zombie level 3.
The higher the zombie rating, the bigger the risk of failure.
Once you’re aware of the risk and still love the idea, you can go in well-equipped.
