I am a certified home inspector, I wanted to create a way to manage my business and create the best reporting system possible. I also wanted to learn to code and begin selling a digital product. So HomeStraw was born.

Trying to find a way to get my first subscription.

Three years of learning and developing and I have been up for over a month now still with no subscriptions. I really need some guidance. I don't want to lose hope on something I have worked so hard and so long for.

Banned from inDeed

I was posting for a remote sales position and received many requests. However before I could on board any of the candidates my inDeed account was blocked. I have since learned that they do not allow remote work from home postings, something i was offering. I think the real trouble came when I tried listing the post in multiple cities.

Begging Of Marketing - Email Fail

I sent out an email to about 646 leads that I had received, offering a 7 day free trial. I had recently added a way to factor in commissions and I do not think that I tested the sign up form fully. After sending the email I received about 20 clicks, but the signup form just resulted in an error. Upon realizing this 2 days later I fixed it and sent out another email explaining what had happened and offering 50% off for 3 months, this message was opened by almost half! of the people 270 opens but only 3 clicks!
