Getting Your First 1000 customers

It might be easy to scale from 1000 to 5000 customers after you've at least established a user base - but how do you get your first 1000 customers - beyond family and friends - who will actually provide valuable feedback, use your product and maybe even pay...

James will share his story as well as the specific steps describing how they found their first 1000 customers.  He will outline their strategy and provide specific techniques for gaining more traction, faster.
