No answer

You start looking for opportunities, but you get no response from potential clients. No response at all. It makes you nervous. People tend not to respond emails, since we are getting so much information everyday. I hate it, and even now, I’m giving answer to any query I receive. It’s just being polite. A simple we are not interested now is enough. Or send me more info, please. When you start, you try to answer fast to make things happen, but especially corporate clients are not at all in a hurry. Before buying, people want to see if what you propose might be beneficial for them. If their peers trust you. Remember that markets are conversations. And the early-adopters are only a small fraction of the market. Look for them. And convince that your product is awesome. Facts. Not words. And establish dialogues with every person you can. You will improve more if you do this instead of being in silence.

Markets change

And you see it. You see how new products come in, and many products fail. You realize that the status quo at the time you entered does not exist nowadays. Maybe you’ve been part of this change. Maybe you are an outlier. Other companies might be out. No game. Probably you will have to adapt yourself as big companies do. Substitute products. Providers and clients that collide when trying to reach the new opportunity that arises. Cooperation might be the path. And integration as well. Be prepared for change. You are an entrepreneur, so it’s one of your skills. Enjoy.
