If you have a product that people love, it’s entirely possible that they want ways to show it off. In the lead up to WWDC, Jelly’s merch game is woefully inadequate. He enlists Alice and Curtis to discuss potential ideas for merchandising, and the things you might need to consider if you’re going to sell it online.
When we start down the indie path, we usually have very purposeful ideas for the products we want to build, but many of us don’t think beyond the product onto the company. Alice, Curtis and Jelly give some thought to the visions they have for the future of their respective companies, and why that’s something worth thinking about in the present.
With her time as limited as it is, Alice has been thinking about what her exit from the indie life might look like, hypothetically speaking. Surprisingly, she’s not the only one thinking about it, so our three hosts delve right in to ask the important questions around what products should be when their creators leave them behind.
Alice is the co-creator of Gus on the Go, a series of language learning apps for young kids. She focuses on developing educational content, business development and devising a marketing strategy on an indie budget.
In a former life (i.e. pre-kids), Alice and her husband used to run a fun food photography blog: eataduckimust.com. These days, they dream of raising their boys to be globe-trotting polyglots… but will also just settle for them becoming adventurous eaters.
