The Failcycle

Failure looks like success, right up until it bites you in the ass

It's not a product until there's someone to buy it

Flip the question:

I made a product... now how do I make it sell

:flipflip:

How do I make a product I know will sell

  • Sell on value

  • money or pain

  • Audience: What do they need, want and buy?

How to choose an Audience?

  • audience must hang out online (or an easily accessible place)

  • audience must buy on value

  • must already belong to (or serve) said audience

  • ex: Artists don't buy anything other than paint

Audience types:

  • Existing/peer: "We're pretty much on the same level, fill me in on this specific thing"
  • Aspiring: "I want to be like you! How?"
  • Hiring: "I'd like to hire you to do this for me, but I can't"

on expertise:

There's people behind you and people ahead of you and that's it
