You don’t want to waste your time and money building a product no one will want to use or pay for. So, first get out of the building and talk to your customers. But there’s a world of difference between talk and action.
SHARE First & Worry About Everything Else Second This Business 2 Community post is written for "business" but certainly applicable to startups. Startups must realize that "process is product". Process is product means everything you are doing right NOW is a product.
The soon a startup begins publishing, broadcasting and sharing the easier it gets, the richer the fast feedback loops become and the more chances for success they create.
Many startups think what they have is so amazing that it can't be shared. With few exceptions (biotech) it is NEVER the case that your thoughts are unique or so unknown that your share will quake the world.
Any business is created in the execution developed for the idea. To worry about someone stealing your idea is to worry about the tide. Focus your energy on getting as much information out and in as many hands as you can as fast as you can. SHARE.
Realize that the most important "product" you build is the team capable of building something, pivoting on a dime and responding to what they hear with meaningful and amazing results.
If you don't have a way to capture your journey find one (write, video, infographics, animation, stories). Your goal should be to create the means of production - the framework where you can easily harvest UGC (User Generated Content) anytime needed.
UGC is more important to a startup than oxygen. UGC helps gauge reaction, shape your product and determine a startup's future.
A guide through how I was able to use the angular-seed and phonegap projects to start myself on the path to my first mobile application.In my exploratory phase with angular, I had discovered the angular-seed project and angular-phonecat tutorial. I knew angular-seed would start me out with runnable jasmine unit tests, an end-to-end suite, a web-server, and some other niceties. That’s when I got the bright idea that I should just make angular-seed run as a phonegap app! 8 hours later… If you follow this guide I think you can have angular-seed running in the XCode simulator in less than 30 minutes. Exciting right? I know.
The Facebook market place is crowded with brands pushing their campaigns toward users who have become more selective about what they will share and what they will invite their friends to.
Facebook’s early days were incredible. Companies like Zynga, who were able to take early advantage of the social network’s viral potential, grew into multi-million dollar entities over a period of weeks. We were all new; brands and common users alike saw shares and invites as the path to virality, and for a time, it seemed to work. Week after week, the number of active daily users continued to skyrocket, and Facebook quickly became the destination of choice for businesses seeking wider audiences.
That time is over. The market place is crowded with brands pushing their campaigns toward users who have become more selective about what they will share and what they will invite their friends to.
Better put your best foot forward on Twitter and Facebook. An investor might be watching.
A growing group of venture capitalists are taking social media into consideration before they decide to pour millions of dollars into a startup. They're checking how many online followers a company has, and how fast the numbers are growing. They're looking at the unfiltered consumer feedback companies get and how they respond. And they're assessing how creative startups are about managing marketing campaigns and leveraging their presence.
An impressive social-media effort, investors say, can show that a brand has a unique and appealing voice—and that it knows how to grab customers. And it can be the tipping point in the decision to back a startup.
In this web design video course, I will show what the process on creating a landing page is- from planning, searching for inspiration in the top design community, choosing fonts, colour scheme, wire framing and finally transferring the wireframe...
I recently needed to add drag & drop functionality to an angularjs web application I’m working on, none of the existing directives did exactly what I needed so I built my own. In building the directive, I needed a service to create UUIDs, so I built one of them too. Design Goals * Provide a mechanism to respond to a user dragging one element onto another * No dependency on external frameworks * No html template * Applied via attribute * Use native HTML5 drag & drop api
This article will be the first in a series of posts that will hopefully shed light one several major frameworks in order to give you a picture of the advantages and disadvantages of each one, and help you to choose which one is right for your next project. But before we talk about any specific frameworks, we will first outline some of the major features that these types of frameworks offer, and then we will outline our requirements in evaluating different frameworks.
