Landing Page Feedback: An always-on virtual office for solo founders

Shun Yamada @shyamady

I'd like to build a virtual office where solo founders and indie makers help each other. Indie Hackers and other makers' communities are awesome. Joined some, of course. But it's hard to find a 1-on-1 relationship with other members because they are too open to building a strong connection. It's like a huge conference. So, my new idea is a community that allows you to connect with other members in 1-on-1 connections.

You can talk to anybody anytime when it suits you.

Please give me honest feedback :) I'll try to fix it!
Welcome to sign up too.

    I know it sounds over critical, but typos and grammar issues really bug me, especially on a landing page. So I'd fix those first.

    But getting to the idea itself: It feels like the solution would only work if you already have an large existing audience. So, for example, if you already have a platform like IndieHackers, then your solution would serve as a great bolt-on.

    Big question I have: How would you motivate people to offer their time, because Beta Testing and Code Reviews are not quick 5 minute jobs. I assume some type of barter system?

      @GregFullard Thank you for your honest feedback. I don't run a big platform, so I start a small community for typical targeting users. It's a basic theory for the startup, isn't it?
      It's a hospitality community, so we help each other for deep problems like code review and beta testing also. I'll try to solve all issues by myself initially.

    I see the value of a 1 on 1, call first community :)

    Like @GregFullard, typos and grammar issues really bug me. I would suggest that you at least pass it through grammarly.com before publishing it. I think those typos can penalize you.

    Otherwise, I would add the CTA (Apply Now) at the bottom of the website. A typical user will scroll down and if they like it click somewhere at the end. Currently you will get most clicks in "#20WEEKS20PRODUCTS" and "Remotehour".

      Thanks Ari! Okay, I'll try to fix it!

    What’s the business model? Why not just have a Slack workspace? If people need help, they should ask. And if people want to help, they can offer. I don’t see why another community needs to be formed, or more tools need to be built to facilitate this.

      No business model. In my experience, really hard to activate the community in Slack. So, I wanna build a community focusing on 1-on-1 communication. It's easier than organizing a community.
