Trending on BetaList (30 signups)

Adam Hayek @adamhayek

4 days ago I woke up to a Twitter mention that Brandy was featured on BetaList. It's a nice way to get some early traffic but I wasn't expecting much to come out of it.

To my surprise the traffic didn't drop off after the first day as it usually happens with these. Three days in the traffic was still doubling every day. I decided to check BetaList again and to my surprise I found my product in the top 'Trending startups' list.

On top of the traffic I also got 30 requests for early access to the app so far. Not sure if this is good or bad but the conversion from visit to requesting early access is about 20% which seems quite good.
