TwitterFone goes live
Our second last OpenCoffee was in Luigi Malone’s where Pat Phelan, from Cubic Telecom, demoed TwitterFone to us all. We were all sworn to secrecy until the official launch which happened last night. The response, as we all predicted, has been overwhelming.
Apart from the fact that it’s a fabulous service, there are some strong lessons to be learned from the TwitterFone development.
* Do it, do it, do it do it. Don't talk about it, just do it! Pat has had such amazing successes because he executes brilliantly * Partner with like-minded companies. If your offering is going to be stronger combined with someone else's, then don't be afraid of working closely with them. * Use your networks to find people who can help you build your vision and get it launched more quickly * If you are a service provider, focus on mutual value not price. Even at the simplest level, think of the free publicity you'll get with the launch of something you helped build. * Demo and solicit feedback as early as possible. Keep the vision but stay open to suggestions of your peers.
I know of two OCC regulars who have kicked into high-gear on their app development as a result of Pat’s Demo and advice in Luigi’s. I hope we see even more.
Well done Pat!
