🚨 Announcement: Launching Shoutout 🚨

Hey there πŸ‘‹

It's been a while I launched a product on IH, and I'm pretty stoked at the same time heavily nervous about letting you all know that I'm back with another product that is special to me in many ways because I'm launching it as a founder!

Five months ago, I had this idea of gathering all the shoutouts I get on Twitter under one place, and I thought it would be cool to launch an LP and validate it with everyone. As a no-code maker, I shipped the LP in less than 24hrs, got 120+ signups, and saw people saying we need this! I then shipped a no-code MVP, tested it with few close friends who asked for more features. The signs were so clear that I went ahead and put a bat-signal on Twitter searching for a co-founder. Curtis from nowhere approached me, and we clicked in our first meeting and started building a fully coded product πŸ’ͺ🏽

We launched our private beta 2 months ago and got the opportunity to onboard some iconic creators like Jack Butcher, Julian Shapiro, Lenny Rachitsky, and startups like On Deck and Knowable. We've iterated on our early believers' feedback and made a product that delivers value to creators and startups!

Today, @ccummings and I are thrilled to launch Shoutout to the Indie Hackers community πŸš€ We truly believe creators and startups should leverage the social proof they are getting on Twitter, and our mission is to make it easy for everyone!

Shoutout lets you tap into your existing social proof and turn it into a beautiful "Wall of Love" ❀️

How does it work?

πŸ“‚ Curate and Organize: With an infinite feed that is constantly updating every second, tracking social media shoutouts* is an invaluable task! Shoutout removes the tediousness and spotlights all the high-signal tweets in one place.

🎨 Customize and Design: We believe in personalization and value the importance of custom branding. Shoutout quickly turns the bunch of tweets into a beautiful wall within minutes. Rearrange these shoutouts according to your need and add custom colors that represent your brand.

βœ… Showcase and Embed: Share your public wall or embed it directly on your site without any coding. Our embeds are blazing fast, so they won't slow down your site. As you update your wall, your embed will show all of your latest shoutouts, making the experience frictionless.

➑️ What's next: We are not stopping here, and this is just the beginning of our mission to help creators and startups to leverage the social capital they gain on Twitter! We are excited to launch many more features based on your feedback and look forward to delivering more value to you constantly!

πŸ† Here are some examples of creators/startups using Shoutout:

Lastly, I want to thank our early believers and the whole community for showing support and love πŸ™

We are also offering 20% off on all plans to show our gratitude to the community. Use INDIEHACKERS at checkout, and we can't wait to see your Shoutouts in action πŸ”₯

    What's the asterisk for? Is there an "AI" that automatically finds tweets talking about your product and shows them to you for approval?

      That was just a typo :) But we do have an algorithm that will curate mentions for you based on engagement, who mentioned it, people tagged in etc.
