24 – We have a plugin idea, how do we get customers?

In this episode of the podcast David is caught up in internet no-man’s-land and cannot get on the call. Will the world come to an end? Will we survive? No… erm… Yes, I hope!

This week we talk to not one, but two lovely developers (Nathan Tyler and Natalie MacLees) from California who have a really interesting take on launching their plugin. They’ve done plugins before. Perhaps you’ve heard of Draw Attention? Well, if you hadn’t, you have now.

Well, their new plugin, Simply Schedule Appointments is launching BEFORE it’s ready! Yep, they’re doing a Kickstarter to get funding before the majority of the code is written! Is this a good move, will it work? Well, listen and decide for yourself.

Actually, listeners to this podcast might very well be able to influence the fate of the plugin, because Nathan and Natalie have kindly offered to give away a year subscription to Draw Attention to people who purchase Simply Schedule Appointments Pro, Business, Lifetime or VIP tiers! Nice offer. Nice people. Nice podcast episode!
