Decided on a name and purchased a domain!

molern

After settling on my idea, I needed a name. I had a running list of words I thought would be relevant, I then tapped the crowd on Indiehackers to get some help (see below)

I've spent the last month ideating on what I could build. I've settled on something and I think I could build an MVP with just my front end skills and hacking together airtable+zapier.

But now, I need a name.

On a basic level, it's a platform for managing sponsored content campaigns.

Some of the words I think I could include are:

Campaign
Force
Depot
Base
Central
Management
Hub
Content
Visibility
Optimize
Distribute
Communicate
Comm
Marketing
Distribution
Analyze
Report
Analytics
Intelligent

I'm trying to connect two of these words, making sure that a reasonable domain name would be available for it. (don't want something like .xyz)

So, now I'm tapping the wisdom of the crowd. Would love input.

This exercise helped me crystallize what I wanted to convey - a tool that helps publishers managing sponsored content campaigns better execute and communicate with their client/advertiser.

The final product: CampaignBridge

I wanted "Campaign" to be included so it would be understood as a platform for managing specific campaigns and I also wanted to convey that it was meant to help both advertiser and publisher stay connected throughout the life of the campaign, hence "Bridge"

Now to build a #NoCode MVP!

My plan is to use Webflow (with Memberstack) for the design - I'm quite familiar with Webflow and feel pretty comfortable that I can make something that looks great.

I will be using airtable or Google Sheets as a database - this will be the biggest challenge as I will have to map out exactly how to structure it given the limitations that memberstack + webflow will have.

I'll use Zapier (or something similar) as the glue that keeps them all working together.

I've never done anything like this, so I may totally fail - but I gotta give it a shot!
