Please crush, kill and destroy my app

Hello everyone,
I started working on thisismylaunch a couple of months ago. It's a platform for launching new products and services. I didn't have much time unfortunately so it took way too long to release it but it's finally here.

Now I could really use your help, please check it out, tell me what do you like, what do you hate, is this something you would use and please, don't be gentle.

I need your help so I can make it better. And just a small reminder, this is an MVP, design is still far from good and more features are coming.

Here's the link https://www.thisismylaunch.com and if you want to send me an email, you can contact me directly at [email protected]

    Is the site down. Url is not opening.

    1. 1

      There is a small issue with server I have to fix. https://www.thisismylaunch.com should work.

  2. 2

    I checked the landing page only. You need better copies. It's too verbose.

    Collecting feedback is essential for launching new products and services. People will tell you what they like about your project and what they don't like, they will help you identify flaws and help you improve them.

    I know feedback is important. The first sentence is redundant. The second sentence has so many repetitive words such as "you", "your", "they". Make it shorter.

  3. 2

    The website doesn't load for me in Germany.

    The connection has timed out — The server at www.thisismylaunch.com is taking too long to respond.

    I really like your idea and i will copy it someday (just kidding, or maybe not :) ). I like the web design. It's clean but well, there are some small fixes maybe.
    I think your logo needs something like a rocket to explain the "LAUNCH" part.

    Soon, i will launch my logo generator site and i may help you with your logo :)

    GOOD LUCK

    1. 1

      It was a rocket at first but then I changed it to this which should be similar to rocket... but maybe it's "not enough rocket" now... hmmm... well, I will be happy to try your generator and make it better and your help would be more then welcome.

      As for copying the idea, let me see if this is going somewhere first to save you time and effort, and if it does, then great, competition is always welcome. :)

        Follow me at twitter (my account is in my profile). I will let you know when i launch my new project.

    I really like the idea! Some time ago I thought about it too and even created some codebase (that will reuse instead in my current project).
    But back to yours.
    I always thought about such communities as public available. But with yours, I didn't find any list of current projects. To me, there is no point to list my project there if I know only those who registered would see it. Or maybe I'm missing something?

    Overall, pretty good job. Copy is okay (I would shorten it at least twice because it's hard to read long texts), design looks good too.

    Good luck!

      Hi,
      yes, you are completely right, there are no publicly available projects at the moment because this is a brand new platform. There are not many users yet and their projects are still private.

      Allow me to explain how it works; when you start working on your project page, it's private and only people you share it with can see it. This is because you can start with just an idea or an early stage project and many people don't want everyone too see what they are working on that until they are ready. If you don't want that, you can make your project public at any time, just go to settings and make it public.

      Also worth mentioning, projects are private only during Prelaunch phase, when a person is ready to launch it's project, it becomes public and everyone on the site can see it so with more users and more projects, you will be able to see other projects, talk to founders, get awesome rewards and deals.

      I hope that makes sense. :)

      1. 1

        Thanks for your response!
        It definitely makes sense. But I thought at first it's not about launch in public, but also about building in public.
        What I'd suggest - even if you don't have published projects yet, maybe it's worth to say on LP like stats "Private projects - 33" or something like that - just to let strangers know that there is life.
        Good luck!

    Seema really good to me but why we need another platform for product launching we have PH,IH slack and dicord groups 🤔🤔🤔

    1. 1

      Hey,

      this is a really good question, allow me to answer it. PH,IH slack and dicord groups are awesome and people use them when they launch their projects. The difference with thisismyLaunch is that you don't use it just to announce your launch, you can use it from the moment you get the idea for your project to the moment you are ready to launch it and that can take months.

      During that time, you collect feedback from people, you refine your project, you offer rewards in return, build your audience and when you know you have something people want, you can launch it, so launch is just the final step.

      One of the most important things this platform gives you in my opinion, is the ability to test your idea without spending any money. You can create a page which you can use as a landing page and see how it goes, see what people think about it and if it works, awesome, and if not, at least you didn't have to spend any money to realize that, you didn't have to spend time creating a website for your project or paying someone to do it. Getting feedback, building audience, launching, it's all in one place and you can use it completely for free. Some premium features will come soon too but all main features will be free forever.
