It’s hard to ignore the fact that Apple products look great, whether you are a fan of them or not. Their prices are much higher than the competition, but their design, and simplistic perfection, is something that is hard to ignore.
On top of that, their packaging and presentation is keen on detail just the same. When you open a new Macbook or iPhone, feelings of excitement like those of your first Christmas as a kid come out from hiding for just a moment as you take apart and examine each new part.

Or worse yet, they pump a bunch of money into an unproven process and don’t glean the results they were hoping for.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a founder is to assume your website is about your business.
Your website, which was designed to bring in customers for your company, is not at its core about you. It is in fact about them - the most important “them” of all - your customers.

Imagine if you went to your local car dealership to purchase a car and the salesman said you had to pay up front, but you couldn’t start using the car for three months, or even six months. You would probably laugh in their face.
