Work on describing your company in 2 sentences. If people don’t say ‘oh, cool’ afterwards then you need to try and find a different way of describing it.
Have a clear, open method of feedback from your customers. With any luck, they’ll tell you what your next development stream should be.
Make sure you are really interested in your idea. Ask yourself will I want to get out of bed every morning to do this?
Try to keep track of your customers’ behaviour when they interact with you. This is the best way of finding out what is good and bad about your experience
Instead of traditional marketing, turn your customers into ambassadors. They should love your product so much they can’t help but share it with their friends.
Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas, just focus on being better than everyone else.
Get your business in front of an audience as early as possible. Friends and family don’t count, as they will try and make you feel good, rather than telling you the absolute truth.
Don’t start your business just to make money, do it for the passion of making a difference.
Always base your idea on a customer need, rather than a particular technology.
It’s easy to scale back a massive, crazy idea. It’s nearly impossible to scale up a tiny, safe idea.
