Video of the Week: Sales Safari

Amy Hoy discusses finding users’ pain points in this 50 minute presentation from 2013.

I think developers, myself included, are much more interested in the how (redis, nodejs, bright shiny things!) than in the why. Amy’s presentation is a good reminder that it is important to start with the why–what is your customer trying to achieve and why are they trying to achieve that. She calls this process a “sales safari”. Lots more information about this and other bootstrapping topics at her site.
