I placed Sendmail Enabler on MacUpdate this morning, about 12 hours ago. Since then it seems that Sendmail Enabler has been downloaded almost 500 times. This is the relevant MacUpdate page.

But the 500 figure should be taken with a pinch of salt. From the log files, I've seen multiple downloads from the same IP address. Seems like some people may have problems getting a working archive. But I can't reproduce this problem. So I hope anyone having this problem will get in touch with me directly.

So, maybe, I got at most 300 effective downloads today (we've still got another 12 hours). That's still three times what I had over the last one month. But then, it's free. Would people still download if they had to pay. At what price?

I'm really trying to learn something out of all this. As a company, we've been really good at execution - i.e. figuring how to do the things people want really well - but we're really clueless when it came to sales and marketing.

That's why we've taken this this break - to go back to school again. It's the school of hard knocks. I really admire the great salespeople, the guys who can stomach all the rejection and still have that zest for life. I wished I've discovered the Anthony Robbins, Tom Hopkins, and our own Dennis Wee earlier. The Power of Positive Thinking. It's not always an easy thing to do.
