I recall one of the vital first ones sellingfor $35 million for no reason in the course of the true dot com craze. At USENIX and other meetings, I come across a nice gimmick thatwas strangely successful. I bought a button maker and press, andwrote some software that would can help you type in any phrase and itwould typeset it as a custom button, published on a laser printer. We would come up with a trade exhibition button with our logo and number butyour phrase. People loved to wear those. Most people weren't actuallythat artistic, but we used all of the best phrases, plus many I thoughtof myself, for many who just wanted a pre created funny button. Ofcourse we could and did make some of these up in improve, but oftenthe most effective phrase would make fun of a few event which had happenedright there at the convention, in all probability in the keynote address. Thetopical nature of this reminded people of our product, and everybodywould come to our booth to get one. By the criteria of later web businesses, ClariNet would startsmall, with about $100,000 of sales in the 1st year. However,unlike my past forays in the packaged software field, I quicklycame to like the value of a recurring earnings company. Once Ihad sold a purchaser, if I kept them happy, I kept getting a chequeevery month.
