Build A Product with your community Build A Product with your community Presentation Transcript

  • Build a Product With Your Community Loic Le Meur - Seesmic @loic
  • Why bother?
  • You Could Sell Creme Brulee • twitter.com/cremebrulee • 2,726 followers of Creme Brulee on Twitter • sample tweet: “Creme brûlée cart on 22nd and Guerrero. Are you coming?”
  • Advertising PR Marketing matter much less than word of mouth
  • What your friends say matters
  • “1,000 real friends could tell 1,000 other friends that your product rocks” (link)
  • “you just got 1 million people talking about it” Seth Godin - Tribes 1,000 true fans
  • LeWeb.net #1 conference in Europe no marketing.
  • 1.5 million downloads no marketing.
  • 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.
  • Your community is what matters the most.
  • Product? Identify an exciting “white” space people talk about
  • Ship it as fast as you can even if it’s not perfect
  • Get Feedback
  • Twitter Search
  • Get Satisfaction
  • feedback.seesmic.com
  • If nobody talks about your brand it’s dead.
  • Answer especially if it’s negative.
  • “Seesmic is a pile of ass”
  • “I’ll have to tone down Irish language”
  • “This is exactly what every company should do”
  • What the new customers look like
  • They want everything for free
  • No advertising, it’s intrusive.
  • If you suck they tell everyone
  • No loyalty, they switch to your competition
  • and... they tell everyone too!
  • They want everything immediately 24hrs a day
  • There is good news.
  • It’s the same for your competitors
  • and testimonials come too
  • What I learnt • get closer to your real fans: launched team seesmic (email list, Ning site coming soon) • 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
  • Don’t forget to innovate
  • “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
  • “A Porsche would be a Volvo if they let their users decide on features” Robert Scoble
  • Truth is in between listening and being a dictator.
  • thank you Loic Le Meur @loic loic@seesmic.com
