How do you think Software apps or services should be sold? For what they are and can do, or for what they could but don't do?
 
The marketer in our office is badly selling our new service; anytime anyone asks him about it he doesn't sell it on any of it's current features he always says something like "we realise it doesn't do this..." insert feature that no-one actually mentioned or asked about, "but we will be developing that in the near future."
 
To me it screams, "we know our product doesn't work at the moment so come back when it does.", which couldn't be further from the truth; it does exactly what it was designed for and briefed to do and does it well and should be sold on it's many merits.
 
You don't hear Sony advertising the PS4 saying, "We realise the graphics are a bit shoddy compared to reality and could be better and will be in the next version...buy the PS4".
 
Rant over. Mad | :mad:
