Publisher Comments:

Once upon a time, starting a business meant months of researching, refining business goals and writing business plans, talking to investors and banks, negotiating for loans, and raising money. But today, agile web development practices mean that you can almost launch on an idea and figure it out as you go. At least that’s what authors Jason Glaspey and Scott Kveton and their colleague Michael Richardson did when starting bacn.com, an online bacon retailer.

In this mouth-watering tale, they describe their process of starting a business on a shoestring, including the things they did right and the things they did wrong. Bacn.com didn’t make them millionaires — not even close! But the lessons they learned have led to comfortable success on their follow-up ventures. And whether it’s choosing a domain name or selecting the right content management systems, buying and storing inventory or figuring out fulfillment, using social media for marketing or finding a location to host an “epic” party, their stories will help you jumpstart your own web business.

Synopsis:

From Idea to Web Start-up in 21 Days: Creating bacn.com is about creating an online business, complete with offline fulfillment and inventory, in three weeks. This book highlights rapid, agile development in terms of programming and business models. These rare and highly respected development practices aren't often discussed and showcased as transparently as in From Idea to Web Start-up in 21 Days. The book features highly specific techniques and tools that not only show what it takes, but how quickly and efficiently so much can be done on the web. Finally, the book uses real-world examples to illustrate key concepts.

"Making Bacon" slides off the tongue far more easily than Creating Bacon, but other than such a slippery delicious aside, what a fantastic book! 21 days? In less time that it takes to cure a side of pork to actually make bacon these guys create an entire business, but more importantly, a profit? Awesome!
