So when he offered to take a quick look at commenters’ sites, I jumped on it and sent him a link to the Scarecrow homepage. Here’s what happened: http://47hats.com/2011/12/whats-the-most-important-question-about-your-startup/.
Now…the thing is, I think Bob and Scarecrow’s customers live in very different worlds. But he may be right. The thing to do, of course, is test it. So I’ll be giving that a shot at some point, depending on how things go. Scarecrow is much more than a website, but from our customers’ point of view: just a site. A site with magical powers, of course, but if you’re not a tech-head how do you know which bits were hard and which were easy?
Anyway. I thought this was fun. Bob did mention that the service sounded good, which was actually part of what I wanted to know, so. Ahem.
