I need to talk to Product Owners, Product Managers and CTO's... is that you? Can you spare 5-10mins for me?
It's been far too long since I made a post here. I took a fulltime job again in February and it has been nonstop ever since. I miss this scene so badly!
I want to get back in to the swing of things and I am dusting off a side project that I spent the most time + money on. https://haystack.news.
I previously invisioned the project as an entire platform for future news but I now realise the scope of that is possibly too much. I also think the barriers to understanding and also setting up pricing plans and memberships etc etc is just too time intensive to set up. So I have re-evaluated the plan and looking to go down the paid newsletter road using https://substack.com
I am thinking to start off very small with a weekly email of the biggest news stories for the following 7 days. Perhaps 10-20 articles.
My first barrier is trying to think in which industry to target this to. Keep it generic as something like "World news" or go more niche and target "Startup news" or a personal favourite of mine "eSports".
Looking forward to getting some advice on this!
