This was one of the most requested features at Pipewing. Therefore, we've added a screenshot upload for newsletter creators. With this screenshot, creators can prove the number of subscribers. We hope this will build trust between newsletter creators and facilitate newsletter cross-promotion further.
As Pipewing is growing, it became more and more difficult for users to find other newsletters for cross-promotion. Therefore, this weekend I've gone ahead and added search to the dashboard. Users can now search newsletters by subscriber count, description and name.
I've launched Pipewing ~3 weeks ago. And it is constantly growing. But this is not what makes it rewarding to work on. I truly love to work on Pipewing, because many creators are actually finding partner newsletters for cross-promotion. They do find great value in Pipewing, and this is rewarding. And it is rewarding to get such positive feedback from early users. Thank you!
I've launched Pipewing.com ~2 weeks ago. The growth since then has been amazing! Thank you! To make newsletter cross-promotion even more easy, I've added the possibility to upload a personal profile picture. Furthermore, now you can enable/disable the option to receive email push notifications whenever someone wants to cross-promote with you.
The vision of Pipewing is to make newsletter cross-promotion as easy as possible. Matching of creators and an easy method of reaching out are important. But this update makes it much more easy to use relevant copy material from other creators for mutual shoutouts. The newsletter logo is uploaded once and then displayed in 80x80 120x120 and 180x180 in your newsletter profile. You can then simply download the logo in the format you need when featuring a partner newsletter.
After I've launched Pipewing as an MVP, I quickly learned that the landing page - containing mostly features - wouldn't work. After getting a lot of super helpful feedback here on Indie Hackers, I relaunched the landing page. Now, the landing page contains a step by step walk-through how newsletter cross-promotion works with Pipewing.
48 hours ago, I launched the MVP of https://pipewing.com/ Today, I'm really proud to announce that there was the first successful cross-promotion of newsletters on Pipewing. This is really motivating. A big win for a humble beginning. Still, I feel that markting Pipewing will be the true challenge and a marathon.
Today, I've launched the MVP for a platform that should help newsletter operators to cross-promote their newsletters. Cross-promotions are super effective but flawed and tedious. The time it takes to reach out, waiting for copy material, etc. I've launched this MVP really early but I hope to get some good feedback early on and waste as little time as possible.
