Every couple of weeks, we like to feature a founder from the MicroConf Connect community that is brave enough to jump on a call with Rob to talk about what it is they're doing. This week, we're excited to welcome Brendan McAdams, founder of Expertscape. Brendan McAdams is the co-founder of Expertscape.com, a healthcare search resource that identifies and objectively ranks medical expertise by specific topic. With over 30 years of sales and marketing experience across telecom, financial services and healthcare, he is the author of Sales Craft: Proven Tips, Practices and Ideas to Improve Your Sales Success. His second book, specifically focused on sales fundamentals for tech founders, is due out later this year. Brendan is based in Baltimore, MD.

MicroConf Refresh Episode 11: Prescriptions and Descriptions: Blindspots of the Developer Entrepreneur - Ben Orenstein

Ben has a theory: Developers who create digital products or SaaS apps tend to screw up in predictable ways. They are particularly likely to under-invest in marketing and sales, and will tend to over-automate. Worst of all, they almost always charge too little. After years of making these mistakes himself, Ben will share some hard-won tips for avoiding them. (Sorry in advance, but the answer is rarely "write more code.") Access the first video in the Building Your First SaaS Business series, Designing the Ideal Bootstrapped Business by Jason Cohen, which was featured on the MicroConf Refresh Episode 2: https://microconfpodcast.com/episodes/microconf-refresh-episode-2-designing-the-ideal-bootstrapped-business-jason-cohen-founder-wp-engine Check out Ben’s MicroConf page for more talks → https://microconf.com/speakers/ben-or... https://microconf.com MicroConf Starter 2017 #microconf #microconfstarter2017 #microconf2017 MicroConf Connect → http://microconfconnect.com Twitter → https://twitter.com/MicroConf E-mail → [email protected] MicroConf 2020 Headline Partners ► Stripe https://stripe.com Twitter → https://twitter.com/Stripe ► Basecamp https://basecamp.com Twitter ...
