I run a SaaS called Potion (https://addpotion.so), a website builder on top of Notion.
You may or may have not known that there is another Potion. A competitor of mine that started right around the same time (https://potion.page).
We both had the great idea to use the name Potion. Well... because its a great name!
Two products that are fairly similar (website builders for creating custom Notion websites) and we have the same name! 🤨
Very confusing to say the least.
I didn't know what to do. Should I change my name? Or reach out to them?
I decided to do nothing.
Just wait and see what happens.
This last week I posted on the Notion Made Simple Facebook group about how I was launching Potion early access.
Guess who replied!?
Zack the Founder of Potion Pages.
Zack shared how he decided to move away from Potion to a different space. He was interested in me acquiring his Potion.
He wanted me to succeed and do well. He was so generous through-out the whole process!
So we worked out a deal and I acquired his Potion! 😁
He updated his landing page https://potion.page to send users to my website and he sent over his list of users. I got access to his code in case I want to make anything over that he built.
It was a really crazy. I can't believe this happened! 🤯
Thanks Zack (https://twitter.com/wenquai) for being so awesome throughout this whole process. I wish the best to you and what you work on next!
