Hump day sucks

It's the middle of the week and I am already buggered!

I set myself all these tasks at the end of the week based on what I need to get done and I generally write lots of to do lists. I get enormous pleasure in crossing things off the list as I do them.

However the last couple of months new clients have been beating down the doors literally to buy our software. We have had a 500% increase in online enquiries alone this year.

Like a lot of software we sell we start off with a particular product by having it built for a specific client, then we package it all up and sell it as a full commercial product. It means that we can make a significant amount of money on the software on multiple clients.

Sometimes though this strategy can bit us in the ass like it has today. I sold two licenses of a product which whilst we have it all installed in one client site, we have not had the time yet to 'commercialise' the product. Or in layman's terms take all references of the primary customer out of the code and make it easy for us to install elsewhere.

So I have to add that to the list of client deliverables, accounting, marketing and sales items that are all on my to do list for this week!

UGH! Sometimes increase success is a curse!

Wow... 500% increase in enquiries! You will have to get more staff :-) I suggest a nice Czech model to answer the phones :-)

Best of luck with it all :-)
