One week after the launch =)

Ely Fornoville @elyfornoville

One week after the launch of my personal website to track my goals I am happy with the results so far.

  • Visits: 452
  • Subscribers: 24
  • Conversion rate: 5,3%
  • Featured on Growth Hack List
  • First page on HN:SHOW for a day and 7 upvotes

In the meanwhile I made progress on my new project that I will announce on Indie Hackers soonish and where my personal site supports the motivation for this project.

I hope to launch my newsletter soon to get into more detail about my results and future steps towards personal success.
