Behind The Scenes of Ten Minute Pages – Interview with Kyle Graham

I decided to invite Kyle Graham, the creator of Ten Minute Pages, to come on The Blog Program. As of this recording, he was in the middle of his official product launch – which is always a pretty CRAZY experience (anybody who has done one will attest).

In this interview, we go behind the scenes into the growth of a software business online.

 

I have been talking about Ten Minute Pages lately. It is no mystery that it is something I recommend to much of my readers and listeners.

But, aside from the solution itself, there is also a business behind it.

And around here, that topic interests me. We’re all working to build and expand our businesses, and I find that there are usually certain common elements that entrepreneurs master before success comes.

So, I decided to invite Kyle Graham, the creator of Ten Minute Pages, to come on The Blog Program. As of this recording, he was in the middle of his official product launch – which is always a pretty CRAZY experience (anybody who has done one will attest).

In this interview, we go behind the scenes into the growth of a software business online.

This interview covers such topics as:

  • Thanks for the post and audio David.

    I recently heard about 10MP and that it’s the easiest way to manage and create a launch.

    For a beginner blogger, what do you feel is the most important part to focus on or do during a launch?

    • Hard question to answer, because truth is, a product launch is a MUCH bigger deal than just a few landing pages. A launch is a big effort, with a lot of moving parts. So, trying to say one thing is more important than all else would just be misleading.

  • Hi David,
    Thanks a lot for bringing his interview to your readers. Really inspiring and enjoyed a lot 🙂
    Keep it up mate.

  • Glen says:

    Don’t want to judge so much after only watching a few minutes of the video, but surely it’s not legal to use all those graphics and totally steal the style from Microsoft Word?

    Or does he have some kind of deal?

    Just curious…

    • Funny, because that’s what you just did, Glen. 🙂 I’ll pass your comment onto Kyle and he can respond how he wants, but…

      From where I sit, it seems as if the buttons he’s using are pretty much the same as every other WYSIWYG editor on the Internet, for the most part. And, other than the basics like bold, italics, list, etc… everything else is customized because Word just doesn’t do those things. And, a number of the available WYSIWYG editors out there, including the open source TinyMCE product which WordPress uses, uses pretty much the same basic button designs for bold, italics, etc.

      Anyway, I’ll let Kyle chime in for anything further. After all, he built it. 🙂
