Prepare for Markethive Sucess – The New Vison
I love the technology industry, it’s always in motion just like our oceans, and often if you look away for a second, you’ll see that the scene has completely changed, and you may never see the same scene twice.
Within this industry there is the need to always be moving forward, there is a huge pressure to provide something new, customers expect a new version almost every year.
But where does that lead us? Is it possible to maintain high quality and a high degree of innovation at that level? Or is the latest and greatest innovation just an increase in the version number on the box?
For example, if you’re a mobile app software house writing apps for mobile devices, how do you keep up not only with the needs and wants of your customers but also with the constantly changing landscape that is your device base? What worked on last year’s device might not work as well on the new generation. But your customers will expect their “favorite apps” to work just as before when they upgrade their device.
That is both the greatest strength and weakness of the technology industry: the pace of change. Fortunes are found and lost, companies rise and fall, or get gobbled up, in what seems like minutes.
In many ways it’s like a gamblers addiction, it’s exciting and hard to resist, but with some hard work and a lot of good fortune, your well-built little app or game could be the next goldmine or the next productivity app that brings the platform provider to your door to buy you out and embed that functionality in their system.
If you have your own product you need to acutely aware of all of these factors in your development.
We are incredibly fortunate to have Markethive and the long term vision of our CEO, CTO, and the development team. There are so many substantial new additions and features to Markethive that have already been envisioned. In addition to those enhancements already projected, I'm sure that there are many more to come, and some of these may even come from ideas of some of the Markethive members. At the very least our feedback and input are invaluable, as we can already see from the suggestions made for BIX, and it is not even released yet.
I hope many of you take the viewpoint that Markethive is "our" product. If you do you will actively promote Markethive on a daily basis. (Which I pointed out in one of my recent posts can be a profitable business in and of itself. You will participate in the News Feed with your comments, your posts, and shares. I recommend also that you find a way to blog on a regular basis. In this way, you will find your "voice" here on Markethive. If you have not yet tried the blogging system here in Markethive, it is super simple and quite powerful. You really do not know what you are missing, I highly recommend to write and post often.
Bix is much more than a simple banner exchange. It is a way to bring huge numbers of new business people and entrepreneurs into Markethive. Make sure you listen to this new video on BIX from Tom Prendergast and you will catch the vision for BIX.
We all need to prepare for the time of success that lies close at hand.
