    A Smart Bear: Startups and Marketing for Geeks

  • Zero-sum marketing channels: Good or bad for a startup to pursue?

    Jason
    4 Aug 2015 | 8:05 am
    Many marketing channels are “zero-sum,” meaning that if one company wins a piece of the channel, other companies cannot also use that piece. Example: AdWords, where the price is set by the highest (dumbest?) bidder, and the few companies who get the good slots will get the vast majority of the clicks, whereas the other companies cannot get enough clicks to materially impact their sales. Example: SEO, where the top three search results receive nearly all the traffic. Even getting 10 of the slots ranged 11-30 doesn’t add up to a fraction of what the winners get. Counter-Example: Social…
  • On the value of Judgement

    Jason
    8 Jun 2015 | 9:30 am
    We’re told not to judge, lest we be judged. But we are judged, by our customers choosing between us and a competitor, by our employees choosing whether to entwine their careers with our fate, and by our peers, allies, and passive-aggressive antagonists on social media. We’re instructed to respect others, especially other cultures. And it’s true that new perspectives yield new insight, and that we’re generally plagued with a bias against the unfamiliar, especially when it’s convenient for our egos to deny that a new idea is superior to our own. But battling our emotional distain of…
  • Scaling by “delegation” isn’t good enough

    Jason
    24 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am
    Founding a company is a selfish act. It will consume every waking moment for the next 1-10 years. It’s an act of defiance and irreverence towards competitors and the status quo. That matches well with the life of a 20-something — fueled by the energy of youth, too young to be jaded, with no financial or social dependents. Not all selfish acts are bad ones! Young founders may fancy themselves wizards of coding, design, and salesmanship, because they’re individually excellent; I did! But it should be obvious that those skills don’t imply they can build a team of 75…
  • Fermi estimation for startup business models

    Jason
    13 Jan 2015 | 9:45 am
    Early in a company’s life, you don’t know anything. Often your best estimate of any metric or market behavior or business model component is at best accurate within a power of ten, for example “expected conversion rate between 0.5% and 5%” or “cost to acquire a customer between $50 and $500″ or “average monthly revenue per customer between $20 and $200.” Estimating with these extremely wide ranges can be surprisingly useful. In physics it’s called “Fermi Estimation.” It’s useful because it’s easy to get to a…
  • New Year’s Questions (neé Resolutions)

    Do New Year’s resolutions work? Studies say “no.” Maybe asking good questions of yourself is a better way to lift your eyes to the horizon of possibilities for 2015. What good questions have you not taken the time to ask? For boot-strappers: How could you double your take-home profits without additional hires? (Hint: it’s usually increasing price, not cutting costs.) Since money is precious, it’s wise to save but unwise to save so much that it hurts the business, so what’s the single most impactful thing you could spend non-trivial money on? For example,…

    Spider-Man has certainly been in the news lately. With the information that the Vacation writers were headed to Marvel HQ to check out some Spidey footage in the upcoming film Captain America: Civil War, and then to hear that Spider-Man’s role in Civil War might be bigger than we had anticipated, the snowball keeps on a-rolling! Could we possibly know who the villain could be in the next standalone Spider-Man film? Umberto Gonzales over at Heroic Hollywood lays out a pretty convincing argument that he believes our next adversary that battles our web-slinging hero is none other than the…
  • Fear the Brutes, Microsoft announces Halo Wars 2

    Jada Griffin
    4 Aug 2015 | 12:25 pm
    Microsoft just announced that they are in fact making Halo Wars 2. The original was well received back in 2009 by critics and fans which garnered a respectable 82 score overall on Metacritic. That is quite a feat for an RTS on a console, not to mention the fact it was a spin-off from an FPS. Developed by 343 and Creative Assembly, the teaser is only a minute long, but we do get a glimpse of the UNSC retreating, out of fear from a Brute while he casually taunts them with “Yes, run little demons” while wielding what looks to be an upgraded gravity hammer. The other Spartans are…

We were also able to ask him about UFC Bantamweight Champion and MMA Superstar Ronda Rousey and his thoughts on her crush on him as she talked about in her interview with FightHubTV. Vegeta did not seem impressed or suprised. “I’ve heard of her.. she’s fine.. for a woman,” he started.

We’ve seen many fan art of him as the DC hero, and he has been hyped up about wanting to play the character. Ultimately, the ball is on Warner Bros’ court to decide who’s going to play him. The studio still has some time, since the Green Lantern Corps movie doesn’t come out until 2020.  (Unless WB and DC decide to insert him into the Justice League movie.) Well, we have a new challenger arriving, and his name is Lance Gross from NBC’s Crisis. On…

    4 Aug 2015 | 10:57 am
    It’s that time of year again to celebrate all things Bacon! A two-day event, the 2nd Annual Big Bite Bacon Fest was held at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, and it featured dozens of local restaurants and food trucks showing off creative methods of incorporating pork and bacon into different dishes and even desserts. The moment you stepped into the event, you can smell the aroma of different dishes being freshly prepared. Dog Haus had samples of a very delicious bacon-wrapped hot dog that had a bacon dressing on top and the bun had absorbed some bacon fat. It had to be one of the best…

    If you love your computer, you need to know how to get the most out of it! Here are the things that you really need to know if you don’t already. Unblock US Websites When you look at all the great streaming opportunities that you can get in the US, being in another country can be a little frustrating. There’s Hulu, Fandor and US Netflix. Yes, you can get other versions of Netflix outside of the US, but it’s nowhere near as good. Luckily, there are ways in which you can get around this if you want to. These websites are blocked depending on your region. So, to make the…
  • Folks, That Isn’t Spider-Man’s New MCU Costume!

    24 Jul 2015 | 8:30 am
    Websites have been asking the past few days, if we’ve gotten our first tease of what the MCU’s Spider-Man costume will look like.  For some random photos from a random, unverified Russo_Brothers Twitter account, this has really gotten a lot of attention, and frankly has gotten a bit out of hand.  To get right to the point, NO, we have not seen the first glimpses of Spider-Man’s costume, especially not his goggles or lenses! It’s been speculated that the image below could be that of Spider-Man’s lenses to his new costume.  A lens that could allow the mask to convey emotion ala…
  • What About this BRILLIANT Jared Leto Joker Theory?

    Ever since that first photo of Jerd Leto’s Juggalo-looking Joker hit the interwebs, fans have been questioning the look and design.  While the silver grill isn’t big on fans’ list, the key question is how would the Joker we all know and love be able to sit long enough for all the tattoos he has? The classic clown prince of crime wouldn’t be the type to sit there for such things. Well this theory from Reddit user Jason-G169 might just explain the how: that the Joker we’re seeing in the Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t the original, classic, “real”…

    The BAMS! and POWS! return with this Bat-tastic DVD set of the final 30 episodes of the caped crusaders’ second season.  It should come as no surprise that Part 2 has the same vibrantly colored, restored episodes, that retain all their whimsical charm that they had in the 60s as Part 1 did.  In this set, the dynamic duo find themselves meeting up with guest star villains like Tallulah Bankhead’s Black Widow, Walter Slezek’s Clock King and more.  We also get super-villain team-ups like Joker & Penguin which give this set a bit more fun with the antagonist that Part 1.  Best…

Mark has a large collection of 80’s memorabilia… Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, Pokemon, Power Rangers, and so much more nostalgic goodness. My challenge was to incorporate them into the design of our home, using the walls, and so it wouldn’t look too cluttered. In a 600 square foot apartment, using wall space in the design is key. I had Mark install a long shelf along the ceiling so I could display all the toys. It’s hard…

    When Anthrocon started in Albany in 1997, the humble gathering went by the name of “Albany Anthrocon”. Two years later the convention found itself moving out of New York State and into Pennsylvania. Through that was learned the first major mistake a fledgling convention could make.

    Lionsgate is ready to bring Naruto into the realm of live-action films and I am more than just concerned. Hollywood doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to adapting manga/anime series to the bid screen and there’s a huge possibility it will be another failure. Lionsgate presented successful franchises like The Hunger Games, Divergent and even The Expendables to the world. The studio is also bringing back Power Rangers. That’s why it makes sense they want the well-known Naruto franchise under their banner too. According to Variety, Michael Gracey will be directing the film,…
