  • 11. 1.5 million downloads no marketing.
  • 12. Start by sharing. • Don’t ask for any help before sharing • You don’t even have to blog, just tweet! • Share also what you would share around a dinner with friends or you’re boring.
  • 13. It’s easy! there are just a few places where you need to share
  • 14. Be great in fewer places, not than crap everywhere • How I do it: • my own blog • Twitter • Ning site teamseesmic.com • Facebook • mail! • Delicious • Flickr • YouTube
  • 15. Your community is what matters the most.
  • 16. Product? Identify an exciting “white” space people talk about
  • 17. Ship it as fast as you can even if it’s not perfect
  • 18. Get Feedback
  • 19. Twitter Search
  • 20. Get Satisfaction
  • 21. feedback.seesmic.com
  • 22. If nobody talks about your brand it’s dead.
  • 23. Answer especially if it’s negative.
  • 24. “Seesmic is a pile of ass”
  • 25. “I’ll have to tone down Irish language”
  • 26. “This is exactly what every company should do”
  • 27. What the new customers look like
  • 28. They want everything for free
  • 29. No advertising, it’s intrusive.
  • 30. If you suck they tell everyone
  • 31. No loyalty, they switch to your competition
  • 32. and... they tell everyone too!
  • 33. They want everything immediately 24hrs a day
  • 34. There is good news.
  • 35. It’s the same for your competitors
  • 36. and testimonials come too
  • 37. What I learnt • get closer to your real fans: launched team seesmic (email list, Ning site) • ship as soon as you possibly can • get your “public roadmap” executed as fast as possible • be transparent and honest with issues • never criticize your competition
  • 38. Don’t forget to innovate
  • 39. “Making users happy is a suckers game. Imagine if Steve Jobs let other people add features to the iPhone. It takes a dictator to change the course of an industry.” Michael Arrington
  • 40. “A Porsche would be a Volvo if they let their users decide on features” Robert Scoble
  • 41. Truth is in between listening and being a dictator.
