Product is ready. Script is locked down. The stage is set for the wildest six minutes in ZigMail's history!
The ZigMail team arrived in the SF Bay Area this weekend raring to go for the DEMO Spring 2012 conference in Santa Clara. Everyone's texting, calling, Facebooking and emailing to see what we're up to, but you'll just have to hang on and keep your eyes and ears peeled this Wednesday for our big launch. All we can say is you'll see something that's never been done before and it's mind-bending! If you liked what we did with ZigMail stomping out email overload, then just wait for what we're about to roll out.
Our Co-Founders Richard Gerstein, Michael Kennedy and Orin Fink didn't do much sightseeing this weekend, but they had a lot of fun putting the finishing touches on the new product and practicing the demo that we're unveiling at the event on Wednesday and Thursday. When we walk on stage we've got six minutes to wow the crowd of venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, journalists and ZigMail fans. Not sure if a guy with a big cane walks out and yanks us off if we go over our six minutes, but we're not planning on going over our allotted time to hear the cue the the house music, that's for sure!
We followed those helpful tips for demonstrators from Rob Lee at Evergreen Creative (thanks Rob!). He was pretty much spot on with his comment that we'll know we're ready when we've run through our product demo about 100 times. We can just about do the presentation in our sleep (or make that, we're so amped up for our presentation we're not getting much sleep - yeah, that's more accurate).
We're hopping in the car and heading down 101 to the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara for our big on-stage rehearsal with DEMO's production team this afternoon. One more run-thru to go!
We can't wait to meet all the other entrepreneurs and see the other hot products that will debut at DEMO Spring 2012 in social media, cloud computing, enterprise, disruptive technology and more.
