The frightening thing is that people go to the site, download the app, decide they don't like it for whatever reason and then delete it. I'll probably never hear from them, and never understand why they deleted it. I'm so grateful to the people that email and ask for features or report bugs.

    This is all too familiar a story. Most developers (which includes myself) are so focus on building it, they forget to work on telling about it.

    I agree with you completely Josh. So many developers I know spend a week building a product, and then realize that what they really need to be doing is spending time marketing it.

    I've lived both sides of this, as a part of a development team who believed that "if you build it they will come" still worked, and later as part of a marketing team trying to push sub par products. Now that I'm back on the product side and marketing our own stuff I am thankful for the lessons and wish more people were talking about this then.

    I think this blindness goes in both directions equally - and as we see more hybrid devs/marketers it'll get better.
