Survey about the Interest of Developers to have their own Software Product business

Recently I started a survey on a Facebook group for PHP developers the evaluate the interest of PHP developers on becoming entrepreneurs and work on the projects they want, with the technologies they want, anytime they want, from where they want.

Here are the results:

2722.5%

Total120100%

As you may see over 60% of the people want to do it, I mean they want to create a software product business, but have not started. Most of them are not sure what products they could develop as demonstrated by the top response.

How to discover software product ideas that can become promising business?

Coincidentally, just a few days after the survey was taken, one developer contacted me to ask precisely about how he can discover good ideas for software product businesses.

Fortunately there are several methods that you can apply to discover good business opportunities by yourself even before you get started developing anything.

Therefore we recorded a free consulting session, so you can also learn about 3 methods that I recommend to apply in order to discover good software product ideas and then evaluate them to filter out those that are not so good.

Insights on Insights on How to discover software product ideas

From this consulting session here follows several insights:

1. Focus on problems, not on ideas

2. Observe other people and notice the problems that cause them pain

3. Ask other people what are their greatest problems

4. Automate tedious and repetitive tasks

5. Evaluate what is the size of the addressable market

6. Evaluate if your potential customers can pay for your product

Free Workshop of Software Product Business Creation

For the last 15 years I have been working full time in the PHP Classes site as my full time business. Many of the things I know I learned by doing it.

I made lots of mistakes, but I also got many things right to the point of gathering a large PHP community. Over the last 17 years of existence it reached 1.4 million registered users. It keeps growing at the pace of about 5.000 new registered users every month.

So I would like to share what I learned, so you do not have to spend 15 years in error and trial like I did to learn about software product business.

My goal is to build a community successful developers that not only create nice software that they like, but also are independent and have autonomy to work on what you want. As a community we can help each other and be more successful then when we work alone.

So, to get you started, soon there will be a free workshop online in video that you can watch and learn these methods and everything else you need to know to create your own software product business the right way with low risk of failure.

To be notified of when this workshop will start, go to the video page, and below the video click on the link to signup quickly with your Facebook account or signup with your email address. As a bonus you will also get access to a new video on which I teach you how to make highly desired software products.
