Response = Zero

Most Web 2.0 companies will fail and I'll tell you why. Whenever a new Web 2.0 product is released, I usually pop off an email or comment on their blog or other similar correspondence asking a question or two about their services. The vast majority of the time, I never receive a response. Those that respond, tend to be in business 2 years later and those that don't respond, are AWL within 2 years. Effort goes a long way. Examples follow...

It's little clues like this that tell me which Web 2.0 startups are gonna fail and which are gonna succeed.

Insight into my soul or the Web 2.0 startup community?


Hey, I am starting up a pseudo web 2.0 community ( more of a publishing site ).

I would say this: I will tell you the site in about 2 weeks, and then check on it in about a month. Tell me what you think.

I'm not giving away prizes, but I'll buy you a beer if you live in Boston.
