We launched OrgPad 10 months ago when we have about 50 people registered recruited from our friends and their friends. We have discovered that even convincing your friends to open your product is difficult.
We are growing ever since, steadily gaining new people. We just broke 1000 users while spending $0 on advertising, mostly our users recommend each other and we are writing posts to various places. Out of these people we have maybe 50 heavy users which is an amazing growth compared to the time when only three of us were using OrgPad.
What are your tricks to finding more users? We believe that building a great product comes first.
It took about one month of analyzing existing apps and touch interface, doing experiments, setting up our infrastructure and then optimizing the mobile experience. The support is very basic at the moment, only reading is available on mobile. In the following months, we will improve everything, allow editing as well, build a progressive web app which will work offline, and much more more. Really looking forward to have OrgPad on mobile as soon as possible.
In last two weeks, we have been working on supporting touch interface for OrgPad. It is quite tricky since one has to deal with multiple fingers, their velocities, gesture recognition, etc. But the result is superb and we are really looking forward to have this feature live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYj4OuCMCdk.
In our new landing page at https://orgpad.com/l/intro, we try to showcase how OrgPad works and that it offers a beautiful design and great UX. We spend a lot of time thinking how to design the landing page, and we decided to cover most of the landing page with mock-ups of OrgPad itself. The goal is to introduce OrgPad quickly and grasp user's attention by a different presentation of the tool.
We want to make computers accessible to everyone. Even those who struggle with them. Our goal is to create a universal and still simple-to-use tool that allows you to do everything in one place. Visualy.
