Hi Scot-Loved the Who tribute. FYI, I was having an especially
hard day today with ski corp because Mike DeGroff left last week for---you guessed it--Squaw Valley. He was one of the few remaining good guys and a total worker bee. It will be expensive for ski corp to replace him because he was doing the job of 3 people.
Have a good weekend!! Cindy Constantine
Hi Scott --
I am sorry to hear of your recent troubles with the city and YVDP; hopefully things will work out for the best. This is not related to that.
It is with reluctance and desperation that I contact you; Paul Hands suggested that I do that a couple of weeks ago, saying you helped with entrepreneurs at the college, but I cannot afford any seminars or classes. I need help marketing my software.
I don't sell software, per se, I lease it on an annual basis in a web-based system. I think this is the best way to protect my secret numbers from piracy. Pricing has been an issue of ongoing concern; too cheap and it is not taken seriously, free demos actually seem to dissuade people, a you-get-what-you-pay-for thing I think, if it's free it can't be worth much, and the constructiom market also bears in the matter. I have zero budget for marketing, the only trade magazine is prohibitive for advertising, and I rely on Google for the few contacts I do get.
Paul suggested you may have some suggestions for marketing, and I am all ears. I just awoke from a dream, tired from a day washing dishes at Hazie's. In this dream a nebulous "we" (you know how dreams are weird) had concocted a loose marketing and investment group, where the return was proportional to the contribution. Upon awakening I immediately dubbed this group the Corps of Recovery, a play on Lewis & Clark's expedition. I had just recently completed a book, "The Sign Talker" about the half-breed Indian they took along to communicate with the various tribes they met along the way, and probably the unsung hero behind the mission's success.
Anyway, I read that you're a data guy, and that's one thing my Estimator's Buddy is long on, data. Pus you've GOT to have more business acumen than I do; a salesman I am not, let alone a marketer.
Maybe you can come up with some ideas heretofore unconsidered, and I would be more than happy to split the pie with you. Please contact me if you find my idea or software the least bit interesting.
