We've got some thoughts about the software biz

1

Simple Over Sexy

Design should not eclipse usability. It's said that good design is invisible.

2

Service is Your Brand

A great product with a mediocre team still makes for a sour experience. Make both exceptional.

3

Be Your Customer

The best software is created for a specific niche market by companies solving their own problems.

4

Go Fund Yourself

When you're funded by your customers, you focus on what they want to pay for. Investor money can cloud your judgement.

5

Don't Hide Pricing

No one wants to schedule a demo just to find out if they can afford your software.

6

Charge Fairly

Value-based pricing is a clever way of charging someone the most they can afford. It's a scam, not a fair pricing model.

7

Make it Easy to Cancel

Don't punish someone for moving on by forcing them to call or fill out lengthy surveys.

8

Ditch Annual Contracts

Happy customers are loyal. Contracts can't make up for what you lack in service.
