Show IH: Maker Bites, an HN-style news-aggregator for makers
Last week, I decided to finally set up a landing page for a project I've been sitting on for the past couple of months: a minimalistic analytics service aimed at single-page and web applications:
The landing page is very minimal: a short blurb with a sign-up form. I managed to successfully publish another side project this past week on PH and HN, so I tried leveraging that traffic burst by including a link to TinyLens' landing page.
The results were great! The conversion rate of people visiting the website and then signing up is hovering at around 25%, which is a lot more than I expected. Over the next week, I'll try to reach out to all the sign-ups to learn more about what they do and why they're interested.
But this was definitely a win! #winning
