Sumo Dojo – Answering Startup Questions

Noah and I answer some questions people have about Startup bid-naz’s.  Some of the questions:

  • “I’m trying to start a company….what are the TOOLS I need?”
  • “I work 18 hours a day on my startup, and I still haven’t made money.  Am I doing something wrong?”
  • “When should I QUIT a project I’m working on?”
  • “Do I need a webpage, a Facebook page AND a Twitter for my business??”
  • “What do you think of Startup Weekends (where everyone gets together and builds a business in a weekend)?”
  • “Where can you find ideas for businesses?”
Let us know if YOU have questions on anything, and we’ll answer them :-)

Noah & Nev take some entrepreneur-ish questions

Noah & Neville answer answer some user questions such as:

-Carrying out an idea. Do you just jump right into every idea you have and start building it, or do research first?

-How do I know if a business can be profitable? Noah shows his quick-n-ghetto cost-analysis formula.

-Do I need venture capital or outside funding for my business?

-Building version 1-point-O of your idea before rolling out something fancy.

-How do you advertise a service (based on Noah’s experience at Mint.com)

-How to find the right customers that actually fork up lotsa money

-How long does it take to be profitable?

-AppSumo cost $60 to build….how did you do that?
(watch our Outsourcing video for that)

-Do you need partners to start a biz? How did AppSumo do it?

-A rapid-fire-re-cap of all the questions (at the end)
