The vast majority of mankind is based on a few basic defining natural characteristics
We are all: Lazy, horny, cheap, full of ego, voyeurs, gossips, lonely, and can’t stop searching for something to help us fill that void, that pit within our souls.
If you want your startups to succeed, use these defining characteristics.
You help people find sex (Facebook or even Songpop and some Youtube)
You help people feed their ego (Facebook or even Twitter or Instagram and some Youtube)
You help people save money (Facebook or even Fiverr and Zappos or DX and some Youtube)
You help people stay lazy (Facebook or even Fiverr or GetTaxi and some Youtube)
You allow people to feed their voyeurism (Facebook and YouTube)
You help people to brag or talk bullshit (Facebook, Tumblr, Wordpress and some Youtube)
You help people to gossip (Well duh… and some Youtube)
You help people not to be lonely (Facebook, Friendfinder, Jdate and some Youtube)
You help people search for something (Google and… well… Facebook)
Basically, if you’d look at it, in almost EVERY successful startup out there, the main reason for their success lies in one or more of these defining characteristics of mankind.
Think about it…
