Wise advice for web app startups

I know I said I’m on a blogging break, but since I intend to convert this blog into some sort of techopreneur slash politics slash business type of blog, let me start with reposting these very wise advice from the guys at Less Everything — I follow these guys closely and get inspiration from them:

#10 Rules for Bootstrapped Web App Startups

  • Build something people need and love. People will talk about it.
  • Release, release and release. Release it before you think it’s ready, you’re wrong, you don’t need that feature.
  • Your app will probably fail, most of them do.
  • Be Ballsy, don’t follow the heard, make a courageous moves.
  • Build something you want to use. Continue to use it, feel the user’s pain.
  • Google Adwords isn’t a revenue model.
  • Find the cheapest, fastest way to 500 paid users. People will pay for your app, if it’s good.
  • Design is an iterative process, not just development. And you won’t get it right the first time, so don’t sweat so much.
  • Don’t scale until you actually need to. (The front page of Digg does not count as need.)
  • Don’t spend any money.
