Our Take

Bridge for Billions in 1 Minute

 

This summer we set out on a journey to remake our website. We had noticed issues where people weren’t understanding too well what Bridge was all about. So we started doing User Testing and saw a couple of our weak points. Biggest one was that it wasn’t clear what exactly we did. So we teamed up with Hola! Soy Andre to create this kick-ass explainer video. Let us know what you think in the comments.

As entrepreneurs, we spend a lot of time thinking about our idea. How will it look? What do I need to do to create it? Will people like it? So once it’s done it feels like the biggest hurdle has been jumped. You have a product; all you have to do now is get it to people! Once they have it in their hands it’s smooth sailing.

A lot of times we’ve seen entrepreneurs putting in all their efforts into selling their product or service, and falling short of the goals they’ve set for themselves. And this is an extremely frustrating feeling, where you’re giving it your all, but the results just don’t reflect that effort.
