Wow, got an email about my Vizify account today saying I'm getting a refund since Yahoo wrote a much bigger check than nine.

Startups When In Doubt Create A Contest: CrowdFunde Partner Contest

Startups When In Doubt Create A Contest: CrowdFunde Partner Contest | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Startups & Contests
Most #startups don't wake up thinking about #contentmarketing. Most startup entrepreneurs are builders. They want to build. Sometimes it is better to let others build FOR YOU.

Better because our new Google marketing world is based on three things:

* What You Say & Do. 
* What others Think about what you said and did.
* Being LOVED by an increasing number of "brand advocates".

Some startups may get all of those things from an APP store, but why risk putting all eggs in a single basket when content marketing isn't hard nor does it need to take much time.

Contests are a favorite of mine. When STUCK and there's no time to cold call or no money to support "outbound sales" create content to bring who you need into your orbit. Contests are great for that. Give away something of value, such as a "better website", and review your entries. 

If a contest feels too random you may be right, so don't put all eggs in that basket either. Continue to work your personal network to find great partners and be sure to update your contest. Closer something gets to FULL the more people want it (lol).

And I agree 100% the new Google marketing world is based on three things:

* What You Say & Do. 
* What others Think about what you said and did.
* Being LOVED by an increasing number of "brand advocates".

Whom Should You Hire at a Startup? (Attitude Over Aptitude)

Whom Should You Hire at a Startup? (Attitude Over Aptitude) | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Startups.We know the mantra: Team matters. Is this philosophy exaggerated? Overrated? Cliché? No. Team is the only thing that matters.

 

Whatever you’re working on now, the half-life of innovation is so rapid now that your product will soon be out-of-date. Your existence is irrelevant unless you continue rapid innovation. Your ability to keep up is dependent on having a great team of differing skills. Individuals don’t build great companies, teams do.

 

The nature of the Internet and global knowledge is such that even if you’ve stumbled on to a super interesting area of innovation there will be many teams tackling the same problem at exactly the same time. If you develop something novel that catches a spark you’ll have the world gunning for you over night. In this globally connected world product leads disappear in nano-seconds.

The Lean Startup
Every entrepreneur and wannabe entrepreneur should read Eric Ries' The Lean Startup. Here are 6 Tips from the book:

* Build an "Innovation Factory" Using Lean Startup techniques.

* Validated Learning most important "product" in any startup.
* Find what assumptions are BRILLIANT & which ones are CRAZY.
* Create a testing & experimentation culture & experiment based on vision, core values and feedback.

* You don't know what "quality" is yet, so go early, ugly and fast and refine from feedback.

Highly recommend The Lean Startup and not JUST for startups. Great book for intrepreneurs, people trying to innovate within Fortune 1,000 companies, too.
