Today I am presenting another written interview with Delwin Campbell, Founder of Zenvoice.
Check out the interview:
1. What got you interested in creating an invoicing application? Share your story.
I’m from Austin Texas and graduated from University of Texas in a mere 2 years so I could focus on my freelance clients and travel. I found myself generating invoices in Microsoft Word or Excel because it was quicker than Freshbooks or some of the other existing online invoicing tools. I always had a vision for a simple and easy to use solution.
So, I ended up building my own tool to help with invoices. At first, Zenvoice was just something that I used. A friend of mine saw me using it and wanted to use it too so I manually made him an account. After a few weeks, it became clear that I had created something pretty special that my friend and I really enjoyed using. So, I decided to add a few features, make it stable and reach out to one blog. The Blog (Creativebloq) did a short write up and that generated over 500 beta list sign ups! I recently opened the product up to those beta users and feedback has been very positive!
2. How do you stand out from your competitors with Zenvoice?
Our tool is easier and simpler than any other solutions out there. You have to try it.
3. What have you done to market your software? What strategies are working for you?
We have just released our V2 and looking for feedback. We have reached out to a few blogs that have written about us.
4. How did you go about having the software developed? Was it a team effort? Did you outsource some of the work?
The software was all developed in house by experts in product design and usability.
5. What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?
We are working on an even simpler user interface that is planned to be released at the end of this year. We are currently taking feature requests and will be adding a number of features in our V3 release.
