    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Location: Alpha Loft, 844 Elm St, Manchester, NH 03101, USA


    Description:

    This month we will be talking about how to find your first 100 customers.

    Often one of the most difficult tasks a startup faces is finding their audience and selling to them. Strategies you use to sell to your early adopters will probably be different from later sales strategies. Who are your customer segments and who should you approach first? What strategies can you use to make your first sales? How might your sales strategies change over time? We will cover these topics and more.

    This month our talk will be presented by Alpha Loft's Director of Education and Acceleration, Joshua Cyr.

He has worked in marketing agencies and co-founded a commercial CMS company, Savvy Software, being its primary software developer.
