Simplicity and Freemium Models "Crush It"

Vaynerchuk’s advice to companies thinking about starting up today
includes three key ideas. First he covered the “freemium” business model
and the “App Store” small payment model. His second piece of advice
was to think about simplicity and limiting choice. Finally, he’s excited
about location-based mobile services like FourSquare and GoWalla.
“Anyone in marketing who doesn’t understand that this lets consumers
have the ability to be rewarded at the point of purchase or for going to
a specific location is missing out.” Finally, I had a chance to ask
Vaynerchuk the investor what he looks for in new business pitches. “The
person, first and foremost, and how they explain the way the business
will make money. 95% of people can’t answer that simple question. The
idea is a close second.”
