  5. ‘The Challenge Is Understanding What People Actually Need’ - Business Lessons from an iOS Consultant - Breaking Biz

    October 24, 2016 by fredwp

    How does it feel to continuously launch new business ideas and see them fail? Not great, of course, but this interviewee demonstrates the value of putting in that extra bit of work called research. Researching your audience ahead of a launch is one of the most important things you can do, yet so many people decide to skip it, preferring instead to assume that people are ready to buy what they’re selling.

    http://traffic.libsyn.com/breakingbiz/Matteo_Breaking_Biz.mp3Matteo has been a freelance iOS developer for 10 years, and now makes a full time living helping iOS beginners to understand how the platform works and how they can make apps for themselves. In fact, Matteo had tried releasing his own apps in the past, with a simple mission statement:

    ‘If we only get 1% of the market, we’re going to make a lot of money’

    The problem was, he didn’t understand just how hard it was to get even 1% of the market, let alone the fact that the Apple app store is not a marketing platform, merely a distribution platform.

    So what did he do?

    He spent a month online simply researching, scrolling through comments, Amazon reviews, Reddit threads in order to understand what problem he could actually help to solve.

    ‘The challenge is understanding what people actually need.’

    ‘It’s not easy, it’s not fast and it’s boring.’

    Matteo continued by writing long and detailed articles for his blog, emailing his subscribers and asking them questions. This process took another four months.

    We also discuss the art and science of using landing pages, copywriting and the most naive mistake he made in business. Enjoy!

  6. TMO Background Mode: Interview With Flexibits Founder Michael Simmons - Background Mode Podcast - The Mac Observer

    Michael Simmons is the founder of Flexibits, famous for the award winning Fantastical apps for Mac and iOS. In his youth, Michael got his start as a fan of video games on the Commodore 64 and the Amiga. He was intrigued by what was different, better, surprising and delightful. In college, it was communication and film school, and he became interested in something closely related: story telling. That resulted in his first job in the video game industry. After that, there was a series of programming jobs culminating in his authorship of Data Rescue at ProSoft. His acquired expertise eventually resulted in the founding of Flexibits some 20 years after it all began. It’s a classic case of inspiration and talent leading to starting his own software company. Michael, a great speaker, tells how it all happened.
