The first episode of this was very promising. Like start up for a product. Awesome!
The ups and downs of product development
Launching new products is hard. Getting traction is hard.
Tom and Dan have had numerous successes and are sharing how their next product is launching.
I love the insight from both Tom and Dan—it’s spot on for Kickstarter project creators. I’ve had 2 successful campaigns on Kickstarter, and I learned a lot from the two of them.
I’m looking forward to how the new Kickstarter project turns out and how it might pivot.
Great listening for people who make stuff
I’ve really enjoyed this podcast so far, even as it’s taken a bit of a turn with the unsuccessful Obi project. And while it would have been fascinating to hear the process of producing a relatively complicated product, I’m actually looking forward now to hearing about the process for a smaller-scale self-manufactured product, as well as any new products the Studio Neat guys are working on.
