#1: David Braun, founder of Weblium:

We chatted with with David, founder of Weblium ($37K/month). In our interview, David says:

The sooner you will release the earlier you will get first feedback and transform your offering. We spent the first 6 months for nothing, we had to fully rewrite our UX after we've got first customers.

Additionally:

Learn sales and marketing if you are a tech guy, remember that you will have to sign up first customers by yourself anyway.

Further:

When you "attack" a niche, it becomes easier to find prospects, you can locate relevant groups and communities, identify influencers, etc.

#3: Shai Schechter, founder of RightMessage:

We chatted with with Shai, founder of RightMessage ($30K/month). In our interview, Shai says:

There's a lot to be said for building in public, keeping assumptions to a minimum, and iterating based on what you learn from your audience and their needs… It taught us so much about what the product needed to be, and more importantly what the product didn't need to be yet.

Additionally:

What if there were a point-and-click tool for marketers to set all this up themselves on their sites, without writing any code?

Further:

Money validates that you’ve touched on a pain point… But it doesn’t validate that your product solves that pain point, yet. Work as closely as you can with those customers, one-on-one, to make sure you’re actually solving their problem and delighting them.
