I recently confronted a woman who had ripped off my UVP format and regurgitated it (badly) in an article I also appeared in. When I confronted her about it, she flat out lied – it came from someone else, she said. Uh huh. I know, for a fact, that my UVP format is completely unique in the market – I put it together, alone, in the spare room of my 2 bedroom flat in Footscray at 2am one morning when I had 10 of 15 UVPs (then, USPs) left to write for members in a program I was part of. It didn’t come off the internet, it didn’t come from a book, it came from sitting in front of the computer, actually working through writing the things.
If I had to give out awards for the best dressed people on the startup scene, my award for best dressed couple would have to go to the Foxy Foxes! – Entrepreneurs Jodie and Michael Fox ooze style so it makes sense they are leading the Fashion Tech scene in Australia.
So you’ve finished your minimal viable product, had your launch and have a nice group of users. Now giving your product a whirl. You’re growing, but you’d like to grow faster. You’ve done your research into online marketing; you think that SEO, social media and blogging are probably the best ways of doing that. But you struggle to stay on top of it all; you’re not blogging as much as you should be, you’re not building inbound links, you’re not tweeting anymore, your Facebook page is a ghost town and your business is just not growing anymore.

Are you in business to make money, to have fun, or to inflate your ego? If it’s the latter, then make an appointment to see a psychologist before your business fails, and most likely your ego with it. Sure. Once you have a good business I’m not denying that it IS something to be proud of, however if this is a big part of the reason that you starting a business in the first place, then you are getting into it for the wrong reasons.
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Launch48 program held at York Butter Factory here in Melbourne. The aim of Launch48 is to bring together participants from different backgrounds and levels of experience in the web industry to think/plan/develop and launch one or multiple web apps in one weekend. This is an […]
I was really trying not to let this one annoy me, but the Australian Christian Lobby campaign against Sunrise and Marie Claire’s support of “I Do” day this Thursday really had me thinking about something today – Is it ok for Media to support public causes and campaigns or should we always try to remain neutral on such matters?
On Friday I experienced my first day in a room with some of the brightest minds in the world, who are focused on creating an improved global economic, political, social and environmental ecosystem for young entrepreneurs. They say that in order to succeed in business then it is important to always be the least intelligent person in the room. Well if that is true then I am looking forward to some amazing success very soon!
We have all heard the stories of a good team securing angel investment based on their idea and elevator pitch. However, I found that since the GFC and the bursting of the dot-com bubble, the reality is Australian investors are risk adverse and capital is scarce. It seems to me only the very best start-ups are able to raise seed capital based on their idea alone. The days of an entrepreneur spending years burning through someone else’s money while figuring out their strategy and revenue model are long gone.
