Hi everyone, I'm Colin MacInnis. I've been a member of this group for a long time and love the community that's built here.

I wanted to reach out in hopes to find Google fans out there. My former co-founder, Brian Best (former Google Glass tester) and I started a Facebook group for entrepreneurs, CEO's, marketer, technos and more. Our hope is to create a space for members to network.

Here's the group if you'd like to join us: www.facebook.com/groups/1832128370403034/

Dickie DangI like the concept of putting targets on the heads of Marketers and compensating them for it but to say that a company can solely scale on marketing alone is a stretch. Show me the one company that's been able to do it and I'll show you a dozen more where salespeople have driven incredible top line and accelerated growth. Simply put marketers can help you with the immediate addressable low hanging fruit but a good sales team can maximize your market by changing minds and building long lasting relationships.

I am being asked to build features that exist in other products already. I can make some extra cash in the immediate term if I do this (although I have my doubts that I would be able to make said features as good as others in the space). And, my product will start moving from a blue ocean to a red ocean. Does this matter? ... See MoreSee Less

Kevin BélangerFrom how I see it, having the same features as your competitors doesn't mean you enter a red ocean. It's the factors you created, eliminated, raised, reduced from the market to create a better value curve to your client that put you in a blue ocean. If having these features bring you money, have no minus value and doesn't change your value curve much, I did go for it. www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-5-quebec-companies-sucessfully-used-blue-ocean-market-bélanger

Brandon WangMaking less money and creating less value because of potential future competition one day seems bad.

Jasdeep NarangIf these other products that you speak of are not your direct competitors, Consider may be integrating with them? (Also valid only if they expose API's) This mostly ends up working in favour of both parties involved, because then you have complementing (but not competing) products.
