Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Did someone say, “mobile-eventually”?

Consumed => “Rethinking The Seductiveness Of Mobile-First” by Semil Shah on TechCrunch.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

Yes, all very true. But how many investors – if that’s where your startup is looking – are going to buy into this? Agreed, the better ones will be aware and understand fit, market, etc. But not everyone has access to that uber-aware 5%. Sometimes / often startups, to some extent, have to take what they get. Or at the very least pitch / promise what they know will sell (to investors), yes?

That aside, and perhaps you’ve done this in a previous post that I missed, is there any chance you can address the me-too nature of so many – too many? – new mobile-first products? We’ve all heard the bit about the high failure rate of so many startups. Well, it seems to me that many are in fact getting what they deserve. That is, they weren’t *really* intended to succeed in the first place. Please refer to previous point about funding.

I guess my point is, you can’t expect best results if you don’t follow best practices. Me-too, regardless of the reason why, certainly is not a best practice, is it?
