This was my first effort to market my product outside of friends and family. I had pretty modest expectations. Unfortunately, I fell way, way short. If you imagine crickets, and then take away the cricket noise, that pretty much describes my “launch.”
I built this product around my own needs, so I know that it fits a market of at least one person. I’m not willing to concede defeat until I can get some legitimate, potential users to try it. But, at the moment, I’ll be honest. I’m feeling quite dejected about my prospects.
So I guess I’ll lick my wounds and look for another spot to market the app. Going in, I knew this would be the hard part. As an introvert engineer, building is so much easier than marketing.
