Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 3rd and 4th, 2009session
From Code to Complete Product to Brand
About This Session
Before you can go out and market your code, you need to productize it. Whether it is for a small downloadable utility or an enterprise application, software seldom sells itself. Even for Open Source, it has to be packaged, promoted and presented correctly... and that is the start of your branding for the long term. For startups, product and company may both be dependent on this proper execution.
This overview session will give you the highlights, illustrated by a real world example, and a check list to do proper product packaging and launch.
For startups, continue this subject with Sean Murphy's startup checklist talk (See Session Software Startup Marketing Checklist)
