I agree that the product needs to be of course great but
It needs to be easy and compelling as well.
So the artwork as well as the programming of the gui should be easy to use.

A good example of great programs----- ADOBE PHOTOSHOP
but is it easy to use? no.

Some of the artwork must be done by the programmers as well.

A good example of a fine program would be VOPT.
A disk defragmenter but the interface looks like it was built in on
visual basic 3.0 or something.........

Now as for the advertising dollars.....

There has been a vast price drop in the amount one has to pay to adverstise or so they
say in those multimedia packed magazine but if you are serious then so must be your desire
to put it out. I would not go lower than 300,000 impresssions.

But also keep searching for advertising deals.
I am sure some of them are pure rip offs.
