This week's episode is a bit different. I was delighted to be a guest on the ‘SaaS Breakthrough Podcast’ with David Abrams from Demio to talk about EventsFrame, the ticketing system I co founded. I am often asked about the backstory of EventsFrame by listeners so this is a great way to tell the full story.

I thought I would post it here as I get into a lot of detail about how we founded the software and a lot of the problems and ‘war stories’ of our entrepreneurial adventure so far. If you are thinking about starting an app or software for event producers this is the episode for you!

In this interview we discuss:

  1. Founding AppsEvents - our Google for Education Partner company
  2. How we came to start EventsFrame to use ourselves
  3. AppSumo - What it is…...and the good, the bad and the ugly of doing an AppSumo offer
  4. How to make your ticketing software more viral
  5. How podcasting really helps you grow your network
  6. How hard it is to start a business, and how there is no substitute in the beginning for hours and hours spent contacting potential customers
  7. What are our plans for EventsFrame - (Side note we are looking for a sales and marketing co founder so get in touch!)
