    Awesome! A lot of lessons in here. 🔥 🔥🔥

    Main one for me is that fundamentals work: start small, take out risk, provide value to others.

      Any light you can shed on your sponsor(s) and how you promote them? It doesn't seem obvious from your page.

      1. 1

        EmailOctopus are promoted on the landing page, at the bottom of all the articles, the twitter threads and in the bi-weekly emails.

        It's usually something like, "I'd also like to thank EmailOctopus for sponsoring the site. They provide email marketing for a fraction of the price of MailChimp. From firsthand experience, I'd certainly recommend them."

        Works well cause I'm a big fan of their product myself :)

      Thank you Hannibal! And yeah, you're very right.

      SEO hmm. Write good quality content. All the basic stuff. And then get backlinks where I can haha! Currently rank best for "jeff johnson nike" which pulls in a bit of traffic! Quite a few long tail words, SEO takes time to kick in and accumulate backlinks but I'll get there.

      IH links are no follow. Product Hunt I think are follow. So launching there helped a bit.

      No idea about Pinterest unfortunately haha!

      Onwards and upwards to you to. How's life. What are you up to now?
