Marketing for Nerds, Made by Nerds
I started DocumentWrite because I became frustrated with the lack of resources for developers who wanted to monetize their code.
When I worked as a software developer, I spent my free time and weekends at hackathons. Bright engineers with entrepreneurial ambitions were instructed to go these events, build an MVP app, and then profit?
The Back Story
Profit, in this case, meant that a VC would notice you and invest millions in hopes that you will turn your modest CRUD application into a unicorn company. Anything that was not going to turn into a multinational company was not part of the conversation.
This didn’t make sense to me back then, and it still doesn’t make sense to me now. I knew plenty of coders who wanted to run a business but were not interested in creating the next Google.
There was absolutely no advice for technical folks on how to create and sustain an average business.
A product is only as good as its audience. That doesn’t mean that you need to be Youtube famous but you do need to be able to connect with folks who are willing to pay for the solution you’re offering.
The best way to do this is through education and useful content. At DocumentWrite we’ve spent many years creating software, giving talks, and writing blogs so we know what works and what doesn’t.
We are here to get the word out, so you can focus on what you’re good at- building!
