    I have been thinking about this a lot lately. I have a couple if ideas, but I just need to find the time to develop them! (Same old story, I guess!)

    Another great resource for information on positioning your product can be found on Eric Sink’s weblog at http://www.ericsink.com/bos/Business_of_Software.html.

    I run a web and software development company (http://www.switchit.com) which recently made the leap to developing a stand alone product (http://www.campaignmonitor.com).

    The product has been very well received by the community because we were able to find a niche market that wasn’t being serviced well by existing providers.

    If I could offer any additional advice, I would recommend selecting an industry that you are already familiar with. This will help in not only developing the product, but also in the crucial positioning and market research phases.

    This is excellent advice and something I have been mulling over for some time. Breaking into website development projects looks quite daunting, but to have a soild ‘saleable’ product under your belt first, must open doors that would otherwise remain shut as I would have no portfolio to offer a prospective client.
