I didn't know they did printed catalogs. Catalogs like these are often read by multiple people so they are great exposure, anyone knows how many catalogs they send out?x86Daddy said:A suggestion for further exposure: Sell some through ThinkGeek, just like the Wiz. ThinkGeek sends out a printed catalog / ad to its customers / people who've signed up. Those who don't necessarily follow the "right" news sources, but are general "geeks," are often exposed to available products through them... They're a pretty large vendor for that segment in the US... and a large exposure engine in that. I've personally bought several cool / weird products directly because they were carried by ThinkGeek and featured in their advertising, products I never would have heard of otherwise.
I agree. And there shouldn't be much marketing before there are Pandoras available to meet demand anyway. I don't think OP will have a problem filling up the 2nd batch of preorders but most customers will not be so interested if they have to wait a couple of months.darien said:I think a product can greatly suffer in the initial launch period if there's not a lot to show for it. Don't think people should worry about the device being popular until the first enthusiasts get some show-worthy software and things going, at least enough to make joe regular feel satisfied enough that he doesn't go off knocking the device with negative testimonials.
Which is why it will sell on it self, helped by OP sending out units for reviews. Reviews also have a much higher impact then ads. Ads are only useful for reaching people who are not exposed by the reviewsSONY said:Pandora is an awesome system though. Pandora is, imo perfect in every way, unlike the GP2X, which was flawed.
