mond... I just wanted to make a comment about your post, more so than your site. I checked out the site for a brief moment. Long enough to realize your business revolves around chat features on a website.
Maybe I am a little grumpy today, nonetheless, as a business owner you only have about a minute to convince someone to become involved in your business, or to even look at your site.
I think you said, “Check out the site and you`ll get an idea in what business I am in.”
I think you said this as a “hook.” It’s a one liner to entice someone (me) to view or become involved/interested in your business. Let me say, listening to just those words did not persuade me to look into your business. I really just wanted to pass your post and go to the next.
I felt like, if you were not willing to take the time to type out a small statement about what I should expect from you or your business, then your business must not be important enough for me to visit.
Being as how this is the Startup Nation, and we are all hear to learn, I thought it best to follow your directions so I could make this comment.
I don’t know about how you inspire people to participate or buy into your business. But when I talk to people about my business I don’t just hand them my business card and say, “go take a look, and you’ll understand.” I actually take a little time to tell them what my business has to offer. Then, if they want to see or learn more, they always have my business card.
Really this is constructive criticism. I hope you take it as such.
Now, about you business. It seems you are an online chat system. That’s great, but could you tell me why I should start using GeesSee instead of Yahoo IM or AOL’s online system? How many people are subscribed? Can I still communicate with my other IM buddies, or is this a situation where I will find new buddies?
Have a great day.
