Bootstrapping a Viral Startup

Bootstrapping a Viral Startup

Jordan Rule wrote a great article on entrepreneurship and bootstrapping a viral startup. What does it mean? It means to use the minimal (near to none) cost to develop a startup. Jordan provided several good points:

  • Venture should build around community, not technology: Community Trumps Technology.
  • Viral marketing by using user to spread the word are effective as traditional marketing, if your product are people focused.
  • Individuals count. If they are happy, they are your product’s evangelists.

I can see a pattern here – these points could be generalized as: Product should focus and build on individuals need, not technology.. What do you think?

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
