Post your landing page and let others describe what your company does in 10 seconds! GO!

Quickly and clearing describing what your company does on your landing page is crucial to gaining a high conversion rate, and hopefully more customers.

In December/January, our landing page was converting at 9% (visitor to signup).

After discussions with our target market, we changed our title and intro para to focusing on clearly describing what we did.

Our conversion rate jumped to 22% in Feb and 24% from March to mid-March.

At Budibase we're expanding our website to provide visitors with more information. So we're hoping to increase the conversion rate again.

We feel the direct feedback from the market helped us a lot so we thought we'd initiate a thread to help others gain quick feedback.

It worked for us, and we really hope it brings you the same success.

Please engage, get help, and help others!

Thank you!

      Graphic design services with a monthly subscription. Fantastic idea! This would be very appealing to startups.

      Product 2: http://draftss.com/getfeedback - feedback for landing pages

      1. 1

        Seems like the UI/UX part can be improved in our content somehow.

        1. 1

          Possibly but it looks really well.

        Perfect. Would you recommend any content change to make it even simpler?

        1. 1

          Not really. I quickly got it tbh.

      A personal review app?

      1. 1

        yes ... would you recommend any changes?

        1. 3

          Just the language really. The hero header and para could explain your product better.

          'Share the love"

          "Show appreciation, and give your colleagues, friends, and acquaintances a glowing review "

          1. 1

            Great ... thanks..

            how do you find the idea?

            1. 1

              I just thought of it.

              1. 1

                You should signup to BudiBase if you're interested :

      Interesting idea. An app to review people.

    3. 1

      experience is spelled wrong

  2. 2

    So it's most probably a website builder (with things like drag/drop). I really wanted to see an actual screenshot or something of that sort.

    1. 1

      It's a builder for web applications (SaaS). No drag and drop but it is low-code. Good point re screenshot, we we're working on a video!

      I love the style. The app looks awesome tool. What did you use to build it?

      1. 1

        Thanks!

        I built it using React, Redux, Node.js, Express, MongoDB and Socket.io. The website was written in PHP. Both the app and website are hosted on Digital Ocean. The actual Yuum App is live and publicly available but I disabled signups until Beta.

      You generate leads for Wordpress users!!!

      1. 1

        Thanks for your feedback and, ya, I do that for a living :) I mean lead generation is one thing, I do other stuff to help WordPress business owners grow their business with data-driven Content Marketing.

        1. 1

          Keep up the good work Matt. If you ever need a platform to build an web app, check out Budibase. We'll keep you in mind if we need any lead gen/content marketing services!

      A task manager?

      I think you should change “Welcome to Productivity Zen” to something that tells me more about the product. Or, add a short description below that title. You have a video, that’s good, but not all of your website visitors will watch it.

      The title is a little confusing. "Feel like training, even when you don't" ... I think you could word this better.

    2. 1

      An app to help you find a partner for the gym?

      I was thinking of creating something like this, which would automatically post on Instagram with a gradient (cool) picture background. If you get this sorted, count me in as a user!

        Yeah its on my to-do list. I definetely will

      I love it, and the products on there. I'd love to get Budibase on there. A coming soon area would be cool, and a launch area, but then you're becoming PH - or better!

      1. 1

        @BudiBase if you want to find your product on the Owwly's list - drop us a line to email and we can talk about some details ;) Also thanks for good word about the site!

      I assumed it was a way to convert PDFs into editable files.

      1. 1

        Almost ;)

    3. 1

      Haha - a PDF conversion tool?

      1. 1

        Yes, close. A way to convert HTML documents to PDF ;)

    1. 1

      Wow. Interesting Concept Man.

      I read somewhere that the future of education will consist bunch of super professors who have to brand themselves instead of relying on the universities.

      Your platform is an excellent path towards that.

      1. 1

        Thank you for the feedback!

        There's a bubble in higher-ed and both the institutions and individual faculty need to prepare. Personal branding and stronger institutional branding is the answer, IMHO.

        Our premise is that most academics and higher-ed institutions have a distribution problem. Great scholarship/work being done on campuses but no one knows about it.

        Any suggestions on improving the offering/product or landing page copy?

        Once again, thank you for the encouraging words!

        1. 1

          I too have a product which is kind of difficult to explain.

          I am adding a explainer video off Fiverr for 3 minutes with voice over and everything. It comes cheap under 100$ and is an excellent investment. You can share it on social media and people usually watch videos rather than reading.

          My two cents.

          1. 2

            Awesome idea - videos rock and seem to attract the attention of more and more people as we scroll down our feeds.

    2. 1

      A blogging platform for academics?

      1. 1

        Thank you for reviewing the site.

        Great answer! We're trying to unleash public scholarship by helping academics build public platforms/tribes.

        Ideally, the offering will be considered bigger than just a "blogging platform", but that's what we're offering for now.

        Any feedback on making it clearer would be much appreciated.

        Thanks again!

    3. 1

      Beautiful website but I'm not 100% sure what you do.

      Are you somewhere in between Medium and a website builder?

      1. 1

        Thanks for the feedback.

        The problem space is bigger than just a website builder, but for clarity & positioning we're launching as a squarespace for academics & public intellectuals.

        The struggle has been to describe the product using customer language of public scholarship and providing an initial solution that's familiar.

      I thought this was for college soccer staff to recruit/scout footballers but I see it's the other way round, the more I read.

      1. 1

        Your landing page looks great btw!

        1. 1

          Thanks! Thanks for the feedback too. I think the main headline could swing either way (and I may build tools for coaches in the future) but glad you caught it once you read more down the page.

          1. 1

            Seems like a natural way to progress.

      Alternative to Zapier?

      1. 1

        Yup, that’s right! I guess the landing page works 😅

        1. 1

          Perfecto! We like to explain Budibase as 'Wordpress for SaaS apps" But I think we need to nail down exactly what we are; web app builder, saas app builder, low code platform, low code app builder.

          1. 1

            I think the no/low code angle is a good one to go by, there are a lot of people out there who want to create a SaaS but might not know how to code.

            1. 1

              Low code platform for building SaaS apps! Haha

    1. 1

      I'm guess you do prison software/tablets?

    2. 1

      You could certainly improve the styling. It's also hard to understand lower-level details of your product.

  11. 1

    For a technical product like yours, I want to know how I'm going to use and what features it involves.

    1. 1

      We aim to include a tutorial/docs closer to launch.

  12. 1

    I quickly get what your product is. I've signed up! But I'd like more information around features and hosting.

    1. 1

      I agree! I feel a features page and a docs section would help.

      1. 1

        Yes, I probably should have stated above. We're adding more information around features.
