When I created the web site about 1 month ago, a lot of folks here at Indiehackers.com helped me with the initial landing page. Huge thanks to all of you helped (@dmontooth @malithmc @chedglen @ewanmduthie @patchellis @Nazar488, @justinsleep, @heylorenzut, hope I didn't miss anyone...).
I went through a few iterations on the web site in the last month. Talked with a few b2b event marketers throughout the same time frame. The first event marketer I interviewed told me this is not for her kind of company. :-(. These conversations helped me fine-tune my idea/message. I created a blog (https://blog.hanana.ai) and wrote down what I learned from those conversations and explained my thought process behind the idea. During my last meeting with a marketer yesterday, he said you were onto something. ;-).
I submit the website to betalist a month ago, I didn't go through the paid route. I feel lucky they choose to feature the website yesterday. Big thanks to the betalist team!
I wouldn't say the idea is validated yet, I still got a lot of work to do. Can't help celebrating these baby successes though, especially for my first rodeo as a founder. :-)
