Comment on Facebook Good morning ...

Ian Jeffrey, thanks for sharing!

You mean buckle up your boots? ;)

Oh man….

Seems about right. Fiscal discipline, focus on meeting a market need, be obsessive about efficiency.

A lot of information about the stock market and fund raising. Yes the economy may get worse. It may get better. So if you always manage it for bad times, you will always get through the bad times. Call me crazy, but I built several companies on different advice: 1. Make products that people want to buy. 2. Manage your cashflow diligently at all times. 3. Wait to grow until it hurts you by not investing in your growth. 4. Manage your cashflow diligently at all times. 5. Don’t hire or buy anything that you can’t afford. 6. Go back to the people who bought your product and ask them if they liked it. 7. If they liked it, give them a reason to buy again and ask them to tell their friends. 8. If they didn’t like it, ask them why, and how you can improve. 9. Manage your cashflow diligently at all times. 10. Don’t manage your company based on stock markets or VC rounds.

Thanks for sharing this. Looks like investors moved to the safe real estate market... but I'm optimistic. I believe that this market will be saturated soon and investors will look into other markets.

I went with 2 of my startups through 2001 and 2008. The first crises killed us, the second didn't. You need to plan to survive the next 24 months, and gain in the meantime traction. Is time for execution and long term strategy. Investments will continue, but at lower valuations and with a look at the post crisis word, because data shows that during pasts crises great companies emerged.

Be realistic if you need cash don't overprice your offering - it's about being cautious with your spending and smart with your investors.

I've tried a few local companies. I was most satisfied with Custom Ink. They are not the cheapest, but the quality is great and they also print in Canada.

Comment on Facebook 2394772839_10159884629787840

Hosting and Seo are separate things. For hosting you can go with godaddy or siteground, they offer hosting and email. But for seo - you need a proper marketing agency they will work on your content and back links.

We can assist with SEO and site development. Much easier to work SEO in when you are developing your online presence vs working backward. Feel free to PM me.

Shoot me a DM I might be able to help

Steve Black can probably help. He's amazing.

For budget conscious startups, Hostinger Bluehost can be a good fit. For fanatical customer support SiteGround is best. For mid to higher end sites, plan for cloud hosting.

SEO requires ongoing work if you want results. Hosting is dependent on your needs, you'd need a consult with a digital marketer to run through your requirements and make recommendations. (My rate is $40/hr if you're interested)

Hey Joel. Just sent you a PM. We have Startup packages that might be a great fit for you

Hey, Joel! Here's how you can do it yourself if you're inclined (crowdtamers.com/building-a-top-of-funnel-test-campaign-on-facebook/) but given that you're looking for an agency to help you, you might want to read about how I've used performance marketing to launch 13 startups from $0 to $2+MM ARR over the last decade or so. Being systematic about your ad campaigns is crucial to getting long-term value from them: crowdtamers.com/build-test-a-million-%f0%9f%92%b2-arr-acquisition-funnel-in-9-weeks/ Happy to chat about this further if you'd like.

Question about Facebook Api. Hypothetically, is it possible to implement a check/limit within my app that only those residing outside of their listed hometown/country can join the app? So if a user has listed on fb that their hometown/country is X but they now live in Y City/country? If so, what is the best way to go about it. And if not is there a good way to implement something similar? ... See MoreSee Less

I don't know off the top of my head, but you might get a better response by posting on something like stackoverflow.com/ rather than this group.

You can totally target expats through Facebook ads targetting options. Not sure about using the API to restrict users for a non-Facebook app medium.com/@ninaverfaillie/how-to-reach-expats-on-facebook-43831bae9d5f

My developer in Pakistan manages his own team, and can probably take on more work. Let me know if you would like me to introduce you.

15five

I'm a huge advocate of Lattice (lattice.com/). I have used 15five (Aaron's suggestion) and I find the platform not as intuitive as Lattice. Your decision on what tool to use depends on the size of your organization and what other tools you may use as part of your HR tech stack. I can discuss with you if you'd like - I've been in the HR tech space for 20 years.
