Crowdsourcing - I Need quick Help with an idea

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I really do need help with one thing right now, but hopefully this can be a standing thread for quick help. I need one word that conveys "use more of the available functionality in the product you have purchased" or "leverage the tools you have more/better"

part of me wants to troll this thread and post something like 'penis face', but how about 'actualizing'

Thanks - I am going to use that in the talking points. I think I've settled on making the heading "leverage" and then replacing the word "leverage" with "Use" in the sub-bullets.

Not the best, but maybe get you thinking about it: "maximize" "utilize" or, to cheat, "increase utilization" or something along those lines

You haven't posted in a while, but Matt really doesn't want this forum trolled upon... I can't think of one word, but this comes to mind: Revenue Enhancement.

Thanks for all the responses... Some of them have been worked in. Just to give context, I'm trying to distill a number of options down to three bullets. I have Leverage - Use more functionality in the software you already have Upgrade - Buy new modules in software you already have Customize - Create new software to close gaps Leverage may still be changed to "Maximize" as that seems to be the crowd favorite. Upgrade may be changed to "Enhance or Expand", but I'm most concerned with avoiding overlap between the different bullets. So if you look at a detailed option, you should be able to identify it as A, B, or C immediately.

I like the word exploit more. Makes it sound like you will go look everywhere by any means for some kind of valueable use.

Isn't that a euphemism for "theft"?

I have
Leverage - Use more functionality in the software you already have
Upgrade - Buy new modules in software you already have
Customize - Create new software to close gaps

Leverage may still be changed to "Maximize" as that seems to be the crowd favorite. Upgrade may be changed to "Enhance or Expand", but I'm most concerned with avoiding overlap between the different bullets. So if you look at a detailed option, you should be able to identify it as A, B, or C immediately.

Explore - Your current software has untapped functionality. Find it.
Expand - Plug in new modules for your current software. Fix it.
Evolve - Create new software to close gaps in your current software. Fill it.

Notice the alliteration to start your point and end your point and the careful repetition of "your current software" in all three points to drive this home.

Can you just 1099 me when you mail my consulting fee?
