Where else should I be looking for developers? (I don't work with 3rd party recruiters or off-shore teams).. thanks! :)

Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to master SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

Whomever you pick, make sure they are great - not good, but great. If you do not know how to do this (which is OK), then find someone who does. Finding great people is a skill no different than knowing how to program.


In the early phases, you should work with a development company. They already have a team, processes, reference designs, collaboration, etc. There are mounds of white papers that explore why this is true - just google and start reading.


Of course, just like people, a lot of them are not going to be good for you - so chose wisely.
