Question: How Would I Sell Software I've Developed?

217 ratings | 19934 views
How would I (or someone else) sell software without any existing infrastructure or a company? In my case, it's a new type of encryption for Linux, but how could I get it out on the market without having any reputation? -Anon ********** To Ask Questions Email: [email protected] Patreon Campaign for a Geekier world: http://www.patreon.com/elithecomputerguy Signup for our email list at: http://www.elithecomputerguy.com/email-signup/ (#Microstopped...

Dude, I'm sorry but saying that "rolling out your own encryption is sexy" is downright stupid. Never, ever, roll out your own encryption! (Unless you're a hardcore mathematician, in which case this guy would've not asked that question.)

Study your market, know your product, find the people who has the problem that your product solves, and sell them. Most time you won't make the sale the first go around but on the third or fourth. Know and listen to what that client needs or wants. Look at all the greats. Their key was getting the point across.

Sales is not a "numbers game" found the best sales people to learn from grant cardone, Dale Carnegie is the original, Gary vaynerchuk, the list goes but you have to learn that aspect you could hit a million people but if your preparation and pitch is not there you not selling anything. Sales, no matter what type of service or product, is the backbone to success. ABC and believe and use what you are selling. Good luck

So, you didn't really answer the question, but here's the answer. Find a sponsor that already has a company and customer base. Offer your product with your payment coming from royalty. If they act fickle mention their competitors. Oh, you did the video for free. I didn't push the subscribe button.

One good thing about Open sourcing it is that if this encryption thing is really good, you can legit get an interview at google just because of it. I have a friend that created an open source security software with linux and got hired at Intel, Amazon, and Airbnb just because of it.

I would love to see a sort of "how to business" video series from Eli. I'm established as a contractor, but I'd love to learn more about the business side of things.

Would it be a good idea to join a start-up accelerator with a product like this?
