Finding a Product Idea for Your Micro-ISV: Part of a series on the "micro-ISV" -- ie, one-person software vendor.  A few nice ideas:

  • Discover add-ons to existing products by trolling product-specific Internet sites and looking for complaints.  "The sheer volume of whining on the Internet usually makes it easy to quickly fill your candidate list with add-on product ideas"
  • Choose your competition. "If you can't find any competitors at all, be afraid. This is usually a very bad sign. It means that your product might not actually have any market at all."
  • How to avoid having to hire a sales guy.  Also: "It's important to realize that this sales guy issue affects your pricing decisions as well. Corporate buyers have limits. If you exceed these limits, they need lots of approvals from their superiors, which means you need a sales guy to hold their hand throughout the process. Avoid these limits (and the sales guy) by keeping your product price under $1,000, preferably under $500."

torrentocracy - about prodigem: "Prodigem is a content hosting service. It uses Bit Torrent peer to peer (p2p) filesharing to enable you to distribute extraordinarily large media files at an extraordinarily low cost. In fact, the service is currently free (but probably will not be forever). Prodigem is currently in a limited testers phase and will be opened to wider availability shortly. In the meantime, you can download content and see what's available from the Prodigem Torrent Tracker.
What is revolutionary here is that Prodigem completely automates the entire process of setting up bit torrent sessions for the distribution of your content. You simply upload your content via the web and with the click of a few buttons, the Prodigem servers are hosting and seeding your torrent for your content."  8:47:18 AM  permalink
