I just came across an idea. (so nothing really planed or anything, just "idea" stage, so not serious) But I want to know what you think.
I'm planning to sell a software program. I outsourced the programmer.
I just thought, what if I hire another programmer to make a simillaer program and made a different package and compete against each other (by my self)?
They are similar programs, but will be a different UI and everything.
Some people want to buy everything available out there, and also to mention the other product as a rival product on the sales letter, people may think they are 2 big names on the market.
What do you think?
Cons are that it might be unethical, and also if you are only one doing it, as a owener or a customer support person your name will show up on both of the product.:p But you can always ask your family.
