Share your elevator pitch!

Rosie Sherry @rosiesherry

Have you practiced explaining your business concisely?

Would you like to get feedback on your pitch?

This is your chance!

Post your concise and short elevator pitch below then give back by giving feedback on someone else's pitch.

PS - I'll be choosing great pitches and tweeting them out via Indie Hackers. Be creative! Add pictures! Add links! Go, go, go!

    Every Monday I pick a new online project and write a 5-minute read case study with actionable tips on how I'd grow it.

    Nervous? Sweating? Not sure if your site is up? Pingr will tell you

    1. 2

      Aren't there literally a million other sites that do this? How do you plan to compete?

      1. 2

        There are 170 similar sites according to the recent research. Some dying some going up.

        But there are billions of sites. Everyday new users appear which needs monitoring and they'll choose between those 170.

        The thing is that the market is already validated, so people need this. More or less all monitoring services provide the same functions, but differs in details. Eg, I give all features for all plans, I'll provide maximum customization I can, I'll make much stuff for status pages and later on I'll do some site speed analysis as well.

        Will see how it works out

    Pleke https://pleke.com/ is an iPhone and Android app to create and stick to a budget, track expenses and project running balance of accounts and credit card bills

    1. 1

      I'm thinking about mental model, for example on Pleke when the user enters a credit card expense that will be billed on next month, it affects next month's budget line item because it will be paid with next month's salary. Same for purchases with a payment plan in installments which affect next several months' budget.

      Not sure how to add that to the pitch, am thinking about a comparison with a slider presentation and buttons left and right (which one moves to the next slide?).

      Depending upon user's mental model:

      • left button means the viewpoint is fixed and the slides are moving
      • right button means slides are fixed and the viewpoint is moving

      But this may not resonate with lot of people...

      Any ETA on Boostrap + React version?

      1. 2

        Thanks! I am still working on documentation at the moment and have some small ideas to add to initial version which is currently built with Vue. Once I am done with that I will start working on React version. I think this will come in the next month or two.

      Makes sense. I took a look at your website and you mentioned "follow users who interest you." I think it would be good to include something like this in your elevator pitch. I'd see more value in having followers with my same interests, as they are more likely to engage.
