1000 Early Adopters within 1 Week

Stefan Endress @internationalmagic

📢 Major announcement!

Today we hit a major milestone that was actually set for the end of the year. I'm super proud of ourselves and the work we've been putting in!

Our goal was to find 1000 people from our target audience within 2 month who would be willing to give us honest feedback and their email in trade for an early beta on-boarding. Today, just one week later after launching the product page, we hit the 1K mark for our early adopter subscriptions and received almost 300 surveys, which we asked to take on 'please confirm your email' notification.

This milestone is especially important and useful to us, since all subscriptions are from the audience that Dekks is built for — 100% quality users 😍

So what did we learn? Simply launch where your audience is and ask for feedback. People are helpful, just ask!

Thanks to everyone who signed up.
