To all Qt company workers out there:

Please pass this feedback to the right persons in sales and management. This last month has clearly shown that there is a lot on unexploited sales potential out there. 

Having a good product is not enough. You need to know how to sell it! 

Xamarin has a clear pricing table, does Adwords, Facebook Ads, etc. This is something every company does nowadays to sell their products.

Most of the developers I know and talk to don’t even know Qt.

Qt has an AWESOME product but most of the developers don’t know about it. That will not happen by miracle!

You should definitely start organising local events with Qt evangelisers in key cities, to spread the technology and show it’s potential.

And YES, the new website is a complete disaster.

Please exchange the Download top bar navigation by Pricing and be explicit. You have a good example here:

https://store.xamarin.com/ <https://store.xamarin.com/>

With the indie licenses you don’t earn money in short term, but you are preparing the new wave of developers to evangelise your technology and use it in the future in their successful companies or jobs.

Or maybe we are all wrong and Qt Company is already having a huge profit and an exponential growth in users, if that is the case, sorry, we don’t have the data to see the whole picture.

Once again, Qt Rocks!
