Comment your project - I will give you growth advice 📈

Gonzalo Mordecki @gonzamordecki14

Edit: Hey guys! I never tought I would get so many comments. I answered to +50 and still checking some of them. Sorry if I can't cover all.

Hey!

Gonzalo from https://abtesting.ai here.

After the first post was a huge success, I’ve decided to post a new one to keep meeting awesome people and growing in this community.

I’ve been in digital marketing for 5 years, worked in an agency with huge clients like Claro (4th biggest Telecom company in the 🌎) and various projects related to tech, music, and tourism in this awesome journey.

I would love to use this in-home time to give some advice to everyone around here. Just leave your landing page in the comments - don’t hesitate to ask or add any information if you want! 😉

Now, I’m growing https://abtesting.ai, a tool to boost your conversion rate fastly. I would love if any of you try it out!

Cheers everyone and stay safe!

    I love how there are 50 people here asking for advice but can't simply upvote, liking people's stuff on the internet always helps them as social proof and in the algorithms. Why is it so hard? It's so simple. My challenge to anyone that sees this is remembering to upvote people's stuff if you like it. This goes for Twitter, Instagram, whatever. It's the easiest thing you can do to help people out :)

    Anyways I digress. My product is Story Creator - The easiest and best online video editor.

    I am really focused on SEO today I've been working on Landing Pages like these. I am going to polish up 2 more landing pages today.

    1. 4

      Hey!

      I've already saw your product in one of my lasts post. It's great and I suppose it took a long time to develop.

      I will try the classic follow/no follow with twitter and instagram, read about the limits online. I belive you shouldn't go above 60 follows/hour on Instagram. On twitter, you can follow users but just respond to those who follow you back, there's not point on getting spammy. I also belive you should look for smaller social media agencies, that doen't use Premiere but are making post all the time for accounts. They could get real value with your product.

      Let me ask you some questions to give you more insights!

      Did you tried FullStory? To check how is everyone using your tool? (It's free up to 1000 sesions)

      Do you know how to run Google Ads? (I'm planning on making a video here)

      I don't remeber if I asked this before, did you launch on Product Hunt?

      Keep me updated!

      1. 2

        Let me work through this backward. Honestly, I am nervous about Product Hunt. I plan on doing that soon.

        Haven't tried Google Ads. I tried my first paid Ad campaign on Twitter last night and failed miserably. I only spent $20, but it was a great learning experience.

        You had me at FullStory, it's a great tool. I need to take advantage of it more. My free plan is over so I may need to upgrade.

        I am creating some content on https://www.instagram.com/storycreatorapp/ I am still trying to gain traction here. I don't think my content is exciting enough and I am not consistent enough. It has been fun and challenging creating those 15.

        I have made some healthy connections that I need to capitalize on soon.

        I have made a partnership with an app that has 2 million users. We are planning out an integration. It's a slow-moving process, but definitely in action.

        I spent a lot of time updating Landing Pages this week and am trying to get some positioning SEO wise. I need to be doing more connecting on social. It wears me out though. I will get back on it tomorrow. More content and more upgrades to the product.

        I recently added a background remover feature this week. I am going to make some content around it soon.

        1. 1

          Yeah, don't go with Twitter at first, in social go with IG/FB. Twitter is expensive and hard.

          But Google Adwords is king, because you will find people that are looking for your product, there is a lot higher chance you will find good prospects. I think I will make a video and post it here later, so you if you want you can follow me to get the notification :).

          It's okay if I email you to get your upvote on product hunt? you can do the same at [email protected] :)

    2. 2

      Everything looks pretty great. Well done!

      One thing that got me thinking is free tier in pricing page says "no support". It feels a little harsh. You don't literally ignore your free users, do you? Maybe changing that to something like "basic support" would yield slightly better results in terms of conversion.

    3. 2

      I must say Story Creator looks very polished and all-around great.

    4. 2

      Hey man! Thank you for your support. I woke up a couple of hours ago and now got a lot to check out! Thank you for your upvote and I will give you a thoughtful review. Cheers!

    1. 2

      Hey!

      I literally googled "stocks notifications" and this was the first result: https://www.reddit.com/r/UKInvesting/comments/7ess6e/what_app_do_you_use_for_stock_price_alerts_and/

      YOU HAVE TO GET ON REDDIT and start interacting with stock exchangers. Are you already doing that? There might me some crazy stories about stocks dropping or going upwards that you could share to gain chakra (reddit points) and you could become the 1 rank on google (I know the post above is for UK, but I hope you understand what I mean). You have a very active target, that always want new tools.

      Have you ever tried Google Ads on Search with a CPC lower than 0.10? To get some cheap traffic?

      Did you launch on Product Hunt?

    2. 1

      rooting for you.

      What's your user acquisition strategy now?

    3. 1

      Interesting one. I just Installed it and want to know, any plans to update it for Indian Stock Market?

    1. 3

      [OFFTOP]

      I was a bit disappointed with this one.

      By the name I was expecting something like "how to get from programmer to manager fast" or "I was sick of programming - how I transitioned to marketing".

      But it seems that it's more like... IH clone? Maybe consider pivoting? I would love to have great advice how to advance my career in a traditional way (for non-traditional I already have IH and I don't need more).

      Unless you are doing good, than ignore my words.

      1. 4

        It is not an IH clone. The key feature of careermove.io is mentorship. We get successful professionals from any background to share their stories so that people can discover them and apply for mentorship.

        We used the IH model of an interview to showcase who the mentors are, what they do, and what they can offer as mentors.

        See the interviews as biographies instead of linking their LinkedIn profile or listing their resume as on LinkedIn.

        RE: "how to get from programmer to manager fast" or "I was sick of programming - how I transitioned to marketing".

        Personally, I am not an expert to show people how to get from programmer to manager fast or how to transition to marketing.

        What I am doing at careermove.io is to get successful programmers, managers, business owners, etc, and give them the platform to share their stories and help others.

        The help is given mostly through one-on-one mentorship and also by asking private direct questions or publicly in the community.

        1. 1

          Oh.

          I did not even realize it's about mentorship in the first place.

          "Make your next career move

          Learn how young people are making successful career moves, discover opportunities, and meet other entrepreneurs to start & grow your business."

          It does not say anything about mentorship.

          You only have "Mentors" tab, but nothing suggests it's the most important.

          And then at the landing page you see articles (?) that very much look like IH milestones (you call them "career moves").

          Hence the effect.

          I hope this helps. I am not being critical, I was genuinely confused.

          1. 1

            "Make your next career move. Learn how young people are making successful career moves, discover opportunities, and meet other entrepreneurs to start & grow your business."

            It is actually Make your next career move. Learn how young people are making successful career moves, discover opportunities, and find the perfect mentor who has been in your shoes.

            Thanks for pointing it out 🙏

            1. 2

              Hello!

              I feel this discusion is the most important point about you future efforts in marketing in growth. When you see the link about "careermove.io" and go to the site, you get hit by the "Find your perfect mentor". You might know your product very well, but people don't.

              This is called marketing myopia, you are centering too much on your product but not your new potential customers. You just at least change the copy to: "Find your perfect mentor to empower your career move".

              What do you belive?

              Places like product hunt would be a great fit.

    https://notyfy.co - very interested to see your advice! Thanks and cheers from Berlin

    1. 3

      Hey this is really cool! A couple of thoughts:

      1. I'm on firefox and your landing page still has "Add to Chrome" as the CTA and "Chrome Store" in the header. Because of how my eyes ignored the greyed out logos I didn't even know that this was available for firefox until I saw it on your twitter page. Use browser detection to fix this by changing which version is featured.
      2. When I first read "All your web notifications in one place" I didn't get what this did. I thought it was for Web Push Notifications, and I almost clicked the back button because I never allow those. But then when I looked more closely at your image on the left I was like Ohhhhhh. I'd work on magnifying the notification part of that image - maybe showing just the 2 notifications from today and 1 from yesterday - so they're a little more in your face.

      Great work!

      1. 1

        Thank you for your valuable input. Definitely will work on those! 👍

    2. 2

      Hey! loved berlin. Went there with @marialdunate last winter. I'm from Montevideo, Uruguay.

      I really liked your product and idea! But before any advice: Are you planning to monetize somehow?

      I really liked the tips from @heylorenzut, specially the Add to Firefox or Edge! I also belive your browser should have a website in the background, I tought your site didn't load well at first.

      1. 2

        Montevideo has such a special place in my heart. I took a month of spanish classes there last year, with a woman I had just met two months prior (I'm from Portland, OR, USA). Now a year later I couldn't be more in love and oh man, I have so many great memories from strolling the Rambla at night.

        And thanks for agreeing with my tips :)

      2. 1

        Hey Gonzalo, I'd like to monetise Notyfy at some point. It's quite a topic for browser extensions and I also tried out displaying ads (not in the popup but on a new page where the data gets injected into).
        I came to the conclusion that I should first really own the notification topic before I dive into those areas.
        Providing a pro service as a fee is also in the back of my mind...

        I'm very interested to know if you had any areas Notyfy could explore more in terms of monetisation?

        Greetings to Montevideo!

        1. 2

          That's the hard part, I only belive you could charge let say, after 1000 notifications recibed, after you created the new habit, and not to much.

          I belive you should also go with the "this is a one man show" storytelling, I feel people would be more likely to pay 5usd a month to someone if they now where the man is going...

          On the other hand... you could white label this product as a service to agencies? build an api to let developers connects their services there? (I have 0 idea about this, just a thought)

        2. 1

          looks like you can inject the ads between the notifications and charge a small euro for removing them. If you find a way to make these ads personalized - you'll do very well!

    Would love to know your growth advice. 👍

    1. 3

      Just wanted to show some love - the concept is brilliant!

    2. 2

      Each support request is more than $1. My site has a need, but it is too expensive for me.

      1. 1

        Hello, i am currentely working on a free version send me your mail via twitter (@vignesh_warar) id i can give you early access in future.

    3. 2

      This is a great idea! How do you handle the encoding and upload process? Videos can possibly get huge. I, as an already frustrated user because of some issue, wouldn't want to wait more than a few minutes.

      1. 1

        This comment was deleted 8 months ago.

        1. 2

          No, that's not what I meant. I mean as a frustrated user I don't want to wait for the video to upload. It might take a minute on a fast connection but it might also take hours on a slow connection.

          1. 1

            This comment was deleted 8 months ago.

            1. 1

              Oh, and add JustClarify as a product in your IndieHackers profile and make milestone posts as you go. That's a great way to get people more interested in your product.

              1. 1

                👍 Added Justclarify as a product on my profile I think it needs to get approval.

            2. 1

              Great! You might make use of service workers to upload the video in the background. This way the user can close the tab or navigate away without interrupting the upload.

              Another feedback, don't just provide a full page. Give me the option to have a dialog in my own website. I should be able to trigger the dialog and have the user record right there.

              Feel free to hit me up for beta testing. I would love to help.

              1. 1

                Wow, that's a really great idea I will start writing integration script ASAP.
                and again thanks for the feedback.

                1. 2

                  Hey!

                  I read everything and loved the interaction. I belive your landing page is a little too "white", but really well designed. Also, I would recommend a free plan with maybe 5 support calls? To test the product, maybe?

                  You have a smart idea, and a difficult channel. I would try to go with pages that already have a support sistem or chat and message directly. Offer the product for free, they are already paying. If your product beats them, you have a shot.

                  Did you launch on product hunt?

                  I have some tips on Google Ads. Do you know how to use it? (I'm thinking of making a video)

                  1. 1

                    Thanks for your feedback

                    I would recommend a free plan with maybe 5 support calls? To test the product, maybe?

                    Yes, I will Pretty soon.

                    I would try to go with pages that already have a support sistem or chat and message directly. Offer the product for free, they are already paying. If your product beats them, you have a shot.

                    Great I will try that.

                    Did you launch on product hunt?

                    Yes but it didn't go well https://www.producthunt.com/posts/justclarify

                    I have some tips on Google Ads. Do you know how to use it? (I'm thinking of making a video)

                    Have a little knowledge about google ads but please make a video on that and cover how to make a campaign for saas type of software as well.

                    And thanks for your time and effort. It's not an easy task to write a reply to every comment.

                    1. 2

                      Ok! I will make the video!

                      You can launch a new product hunt (like with a 2.0 version) but you need to build up an audience first.

                      You can email me when you launch. Is ok if I send you an email to notify about my launch? Thanks!

                    2. 1

                      I don't have your email and is not on your profile, would you give it to me?

    Would love to hear what ideas you have. Thanks.

    1. 1

      Hey!

      Thank you so much for implementing our tool! Feel free to write me to [email protected] if you have any doubts :).

      My first advice: get the SSL cerificate, a lot of people don't trust websites without https://.

      Second, you need to make clearer that the app is free. I started asking myself if I had yo pay for the service, I suppouse your idea is to monetize with ads.

      I belive you will find growth if you go to niche sites (like this one) and promise a feed personalized on that subjetc. For example, you should start a user ona subreddit /r/art (or something your app gives real value) and get some karma (reddit points) to start interacting with directs prospects.

      Then, you have a long landing page. You should install fullstory and check screenrecordings of how your users interact... A shorter landing page can help you get more downloads if you create a bigger impact, but check it on fullstory first! (thay have a free plan)

      It's a powerfull idea. You have to get on product hunt! Have you though or are working on that?

      Let me know

      1. 2

        I agree with @gonzamordecki get the SSL cerificate, a lot of people don't trust websites without

        This is a fairly crowded space, so I'd focus on emulating those that are successful and then iterate off that.

        Split test your copy and angles, then design a lading page that looks the part.

        1. 2

          Thanks, we are using @gonzamordecki 's tool abtesting to test our landing page now.

          Thanks a lot for the feedback :-)

      2. 1

        Thanks a lot for the awesome advice. We do have ssl certificate setup but sometimes it shows as we don't have it. Strange.

        I will definitely add about the app being free. We will launch a subscription plan around Septemeber until then we are making the app totally free.

        Yeah, I am working on creating new landing pages that focus on a certain niche like for founders/managers/engineers etc.

        Also installed fullstory.

        We are planning a PH launch in a month or so when we have launched some new features in the app. We were told that PH doesn't allow relaunch of a product on their website. So we are preparing for that for now.

        1. 2

          That's great!

          Email me to [email protected] and I will upvote.

          It's ok if I send you an email so you upvote mine?

      Hey!

      I would go crazy here: https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/resources/best-web-design-slack-channels and some channels, because a lot of those people are learning, and finding inspiration at an early stage is key to make your tool a must in their design process.

      Did you launch on product hunt?

      whose your target use case?

      What you have is super valuable and saves me a ton of time.

      Marketers could use this, PMs could use this, Startups could use this.

      Make sure you know this, then start building your growth plan off that.

      Man,

      You have to start sending emails to organizations that help with that problem around the world. I bet 99% of them don't have an app, and also don't get a lot of marketing emails. You can offer the app for 10 users for free and charge after that, or something like that. I don't see how this wouldn't work

      Did you ever think of a white label option? For companies to get the app but brand it with their logo?

      1. 1

        Thank you for the ideas! I'll definetely email some organizations and maybe offer white labeling as well!

        1. 2

          Keep it up!

          Are you planning on launching in product hunt?

          1. 1

            Yeah I am going to post it there after making it a bit more user friendly and bug-free.

            1. 1

              That's sounds great!

              Reach me at [email protected] and I will upvote,

              It's okay if a reach you with our launch?

              Thanks!

                Sure! Reach me out at [email protected] with your launch.

      I don't fully understand your buissnes. Who is your potential costumer? Who is your competition? If I have some more insight, I might give some value :)

      1. 1

        We provide a device-agnostic online platform to enable drivers to store videos from their dash cams and share them with third parties like insurance. We are going to add more features around accident detection and explanation later in the year.

        Major competition for us is 1 or 2 desktop apps that enable drivers to see their dash cam videos for telematics, but without storage, sharing, and the analytics we are building.

        We think there is something valuable in there for insurance too but this requires more research.

        1. 1

          The insurance thing seems like gold. Go dig there! You could gain value sending personalized emails.

          Are you planning on launching in product hunt?

          1. 1

            Thanks @gonzamordecki14 ! We're still doing some research around the insurance use case.

            We will be launching on Product Hunt later this month indeed. Do you know any popular Hunter(s) we should approach?

            1. 1

              First, reach me at [email protected] so I upvote when you post! it's okay if I do the same with you?

    1. 1

      Where is your link!? Haha 🙌🏻

    1. 1

      Hey! You are welcome!

      My biggest advice would be to give examples on your site. I belive that would make a huge difference on your conversion rate. You can promise whatever, but people want to see how your product would work on their site, and an example is the best possible way to make them feel that. It doesn't need to be real!

      It makes al the AI real! Some people might be skeptical about copyies written by AI (whe expirience that with our Call To Action suggestions on https://abtesting.ai).

      Are you planning to launch on product hunt?

      1. 1

        Thank you for your feedback🙏🏼 I'm currently working on some demo elements so it's good to hear that people like to see that.

        I want to launch on ProductHunt but did it twice and got no upvotes. So I'm actually looking for someone with some experience with it, that I can chat with for some tips.

    1. 2

      Hey! Congratulations, I see a lot of hard work there.

      You should try Google Adwords (with a CPC less than 0.05 USD) and Full Story to start getting some cheap traffic to see how users are using your site. Do you know how to do that? (I'm planning on making a video).

      Then, make a usefull post here or in reddit about logos. People don't know much about that, and are willing to improve it.

      Are you planning anything on Product Hunt?

      1. 1

        Hey! Thanks for the feedback!
        I actually drive some traffic to Logology with some Reddit post I made + some forums. Not much (80users/day) but it's enough to have the first insights!
        Regarding ads, I'm not sure. It's a crowded market and it's hard to find cheap bet on logo keywords.

        Some content is on his way, and yes we want to go on PH. 
        Not sure when tho → https://www.indiehackers.com/post/what-is-your-launch-strategy-25f4d076d9

        1. 1

          Oh! Great! Do you use fullstory to find out how those 80/day are using your site? Because if you are getting traffic and just getting the output of every day, you are losing a lot of value. (It's free up to 1000 sessions)

          I will check your post later, and leave some insights.

          You can email me to [email protected] to get my upvote whenever! We are building our launch, I would love to email you to get your upvote. It's that ok?

          1. 1

            Yep, fullstory + Mixpanel. You can email me yes!

            PS: nice trick to collect email btw!

            1. 2

              It's a lot of hard work... but definitley worth it.

              Keep it up!

    1. 1

      I belive you should focus on 1 thing:

      • The sales channel before getting there has to be tempting and should give you value in that process. Some free videos on youtube, something that will make people say: "Oh... so I can avoid paying for a CRM? That's seems interesting"

      A video called: "Build your CRM for free on Google Spreedsheets" could get you traffic in the long run, but you don't have to give all your secrets there!

      BTW you can try cheap google ads with keywords like "google spreedsheat tricks" and see what happens :)

    1. 2

      You have to explain a lot more about your product on your landing page. I'm not a expirienced developer, I don't fully understand it, and you will never lose a costumer to explain your product better!

      When people are learning they start using new products, and that is the good growth advice to your project.

      Maybe you can explain a little bit more and I would give you some feedback?

      Loved your landing. How is your suscriber count doing?

      You should build a great Product Hunt launch. Are you do something there?

      It's a competitive field. You need a solid Differentiation Strategy.

    1. 1

      Are you driving yourself crazy on slack channels?

      That's your starting point, and if you don't get users there, you probably have to change your proposal, not your product, but how is presented. Maybe finding a niche that could use your tool and focus on that one.

    dytto.co

    Went live 5 days ago, it's in alpha stage. I don't plan to add any features besides the stability and bug fixes for now. At least until I have 10 good quality interviews with potential customers, so that I know how they use such products and learn what exactly they need. Other than that, I care a lot about the UX. Any feedback about any aspect of it is appreciated.

    1. 2

      Hey man!

      I'm going to leave you one comment first:

      Spanish is my first language, I watch movies, read book in english easily. But I didn't get your service, because for me, a quote is a "cool sentence". Can you explain any further?

      1. 1

        I appreciate you taking your time to check out my app, Gonzalo.

        A business quote is an official offer you send to a potential customer/buyer. It is traditionally sent as PDF files or actual prints. We offer to make it easier to create offers, send them to our users' customers, and make it easier to keep track of which ones got accepted, refused or haven't responded yet. New features are planned but will not be initiated before some validation.

        English is not my native language too, and as far as I can see from internet and from our competitors, "quote" or "quotation" is the most used term for what we do. I'm at my cofounder's home right now actually, and he says we can change the word to "deal" or "offer". What do you think?

        1. 1

          Oh! It's seems like a great idea. I would definetly use it. You defenitly have to check with a native here, my comments will be as valuable as yours, but without a doubt it can be clearer.

          On the growth aspect, I belive you should search the web for freelancers and ask them to try the service to get some valuable feedback. You can get insights using fullstory on your site (it's free up to 1000 sessions/month).

          Im planning on making a video about google ads and post it here. Would you be interested? It's to get some cheap traffic.

          Also, you would definitely have to post on product hunt someday down the road. We are planning our launch now, it's okay if I add your email to our email list to notify you about our launch?

          1. 2

            Great feedback mate, thanks. I'll check out FullStory, it looks valuable.

            I'm not so big on ads. I rather avoid them if I can. I'd still want to know about cheap ways of getting traffic though. Hit me up when you share them.

            You can add me to your email list. Anything to help fellow IndieHackers. :)

    1. 1

      Hey man!

      Without a doubt my biggest growth advice would be to make a more visual landing page... a person need to have too much previous interested to read plain text!

      A classic "features" space would be awesome, you can check some inspiration here www.landingfolio.com from @DannyPostma

      You need to have some products on the main page. I'm sure that's the biggest growth advice I can give you right now.

      Other advice: Go learn from Gabriel ( he does dropshipping but gives great advice on facebook ads) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqw27ZfS4aWdNhP1MDOldPA

      How have things been since ur HN launch?

      1. 1

        Thanks! It’s been going well. Since the HN launch I’ve started charging money for it (probably should have done that sooner), shifted time working on it full-time, added support for Bootstrap, database integration, and lots of small things to improve overall code quality. Next up: Stripe payments :)

    1. 2

      I think that you're missing this:
      If I ever want to pay for your product I want to see what I am paying for. I want to be convinced by YOU that MY money is well spent.
      Therefore before paying, show some use-cases of companies that used the paid version and managed to hire better and faster and WHY you're the place to hire latam remote workers.

      1. 1

        Great advise, thanks, will re write the info por paid job posts and sponsors.

      npm natively allows you to have private packages for your org if you pay, what am I missing?

      1. 2

        PrivJs allows developers to provide npm install access only to their customers.

      2. 1

        Nope. NPM allows you to have private packages for your org

      I feel like you're advertising one thing on your website, but in reality you're selling a solution to something else...
      You're just asking them to download an app you developped through a QR code which will push notifications to them - right? I tried to scan the >FIRST< QR code that was in the homepage but it didn't work. When I scrolled to the bottom of the site then I found another QR with the actual app..Maybe that's what you need to specify better in your homepage. Just clarity around the product itself, I understand what it does but I couldn't understand how to get started quickly enough!

      1. 1

        Hey, thanks for the feedback. Yeah, there are two sides, publishers (dashboard to sign up) and subscribers (mobile app which can be downloaded). Maybe it is a bit confusing, I'll try to clear that.

        The landing page is not mainly for an app to be downloaded. That part is there just to provide the app so they (publishers) can see it in action.

        Main goal is to convince publishers to give this new way of sending content a try.

        FIRST QR code will probably be removed since it's confusing people also. I'm realising it now since you're not the first one who thought it's a QR. This is not a valid QR, it's a visualisation of QR, used to demonstrate an action. I'll remove it or put an actual QR code.

        So, all in all, I'll spend some time making it clear who this landing page is for.

        Thanks again, valuable inputs

    2. 1

      So here is my understanding of your app/biz. As a customer, I don't have enough trust for one vendor/company to provide my email. So I need to download your app (and grant it permissions), so I can receive occasional emails from this 1 vendor/company among many vendors/companies that I have interactions with? Is this correct?

      1. 1

        Hey, thanks for the reply.

        It doesn't have to be trust, it could be also I might skip your offerings just because you're asking my email, otherwise I might buy thing or two from you.

        So the end user needs to download the app to receive updates from this vendor (it doesn't have to be emails, it could be in different formats). Yes, permission has to be granted for camera, since it's using camera to scan a QR code.

        However, our plan is to bring more vendors, so at the moment we're talking with shops and supermarkets, so you could have multiple vendors in your subscription list, not only one. Kind of like twitter way.

        1. 2

          Got it. Your app is for people who want to get informed of some promotions from vendors (mostly offline) but do not want to provide email or phone number and don't want to download the vendors app. So your app is an universal promotion notification center. Cool.

          Definitely a chicken and egg problem. Need a lot of vendors for users to download you app and a lot of users for vendors to pay for your service.

    I am waiting for my ad to be approved for Google Ads as well as twitter to allow me to advertise.

    Right now, I am aiming to onboard domain owners so that when we pivot to advertising to our actual customers we have stock to sell to them.

    https://www.asmi.io - would love to get your thoughts as we are prepping to double down on our growth (initial traction) efforts.

    1. 1

      Hey!

      You should go to fiverr and places like that and find hundreds of freelancers that are your target audience, they don't usually share their contact, but is easy to find them online. Any thoughts of that?

      Also, build a powerfull user here or in reddit, anywhere with lots of freelancers.

      Are you planning a product hunt down the line? Because if you start making contacts (like me here) you should collect emails for that launch!

      1. 1

        Thank you @gonzamordecki14. Finding folks on fiverr makes a lot of sense. Didn't understand your second statement Also, build a powerfull user here or in reddit. Do you mean build a powerful user base?

        Yes, we are planning to launch on product hunt. Idea of the landing page right now is to show some value and collect emails.

    1. 1

      Hey!

      Of course you should make a great user on reddit, comment, be an active member of that community. Second, follow investors on twitter, and message those who follow back.

      Also, implement FullStory.com, that will show you how users are using your platform.

      I would try investing a little bit of money on google ads to get some new users, paying cents for every clic. Do you know how to do that? ( I'm planning on making a video)

      Did you launch on product hunt?

      1. 2

        Thank you. I wasn't familiar with FullStory but I'll begin checking it out. I've started with twitter, but haven't as much with reddit. Good idea, I'll start looking around for the right threads.

  24. 2

    First of all, thank you so much for offering help! It's super appreciated, really.

    I'm building chooseyourplant.com which is a worldwide community for houseplant lovers. I'm trying to cover all steps from the idea of having a houseplant to buying it.

    Now I'm more focused on the first one and the product becomes more mature, I'll be focusing on the last part.

    So users can look for plants they like how it looks and that they have to take care. then select one of the plants they liked id and see a plant guide

    1. 2

      Hey!

      Your idea looks awesome. I belive your landing page is a little bit longer than needed.

      I belive you should go hard on reddit! And in the long term, YouTube can make you a huge player. A lot of people check videos, and if you get some videos up there (google "youtube SEO") you could get free traffic in the long run.

      Your niche is full of happy and nice people who are willing to share if you give them value.

      Good luck!

      1. 1

        I could add a lot of content on the main page like videos, links to my blog, plants, and more!

        But I thought that a good way to target keywords would be to add an article on the home page.

        I agree with what you said!

        I have to see how to do an affialite program tho. plant shops don't do it... only amazon and it doesn't have a lot of plants

  25. 2

    opensourcecapital.co - Thanks very much @gonzamordecki14. This is a great idea.

    1. 2

      Hey! My pleasure.

      I loved the look and feel of your site, is related to your product. I belive a great opportunity for you is to have a relevant user in similar places or communities and try to steal some traffic there. I belive you already found some subreddits, but there has to be similar places around.

      You should check out this list: https://loopinput.com/the-top-140-places-to-post-your-startup/ because in every site there are people who might be interested in your product.

      Have you lunched on product hunt?

      1. 1

        Hey @gonzamordecki, thanks so much for the feedback. I will check out the link you sent me. I have not launched on Product Hunt...yet. But I plan to do this in the next month or so. :)

        1. 1

          That's great! Reach me at [email protected] for my upvote.

          It's ok if I do the same with you?

          Cheers!

          1. 1

            Hi @gonzamordecki14. I'll shoot you an email.

    1. 1

      Strange but cool concept.

      You should check "Tuned", an app of Facebook for couples, it remaind me of that.

      I don't feel journalism would find it useful as a work tool, who is your audience? I don't fully understand how you would monetize either.

  26. 2

    Not sure if there will be time for it, but here it goes - https://musicmeal.io

  27. 2

    Gosh, you have so many requests. But I'll try: https://pingr.io

    Few notes:

    1. The product is not ready yet, still working on it
    2. I know that this is competitive area and there are a lot of competitors. And it's quite hard for me to have USP, however I put a lot of effort in UX/UI and have some things which not everyone have (telegram notifications, later on whatsapp notifications). But generally it has the same functionality, but this is for now. I have a lot of ideas which I really want to implement later, if I got at least some results. So the thing is how to get them, these results :)

    Thank you in advance

    1. 1

      Sorry it took me some time, I already saw you product in a former post!

      It's a really competitive market, so I'm not sure how you might be able to get your first clients, but I belive twitter would be a intersting channel to focus on. You can gain individual users to try your platform and give you feedback.

      You should try fullstroy.com to see how is people using your platform.

      Are you planning on lauching in product hunt?

      1. 1

        Yeah, I know it's competitive. But I hope that it also means there is a need for such services so I'll try make it better than others.

        Yes, I plan to launch on PH and some other minor platforms. You know what motivates me is that I saw a couple of successful examples recently when competitors started making revenue and they are solo makers

        Thanks for your reply!! :)

        1. 2

          That's sounds great! The best of luck!

          Please reach me out at [email protected] when you launch to get my upvote!

          It's okay if I do the same? Thanks!
