Just 3 days ago, I launched the MVP of Read15MinsADay.
Just a few minutes ago, 20th user signed up! This is absolutely encouraging and exciting.
How did that happen?
Most traffic is coming from friends, friends of friends, IH, HN and Twitter posts.
This tells me that the product's and especially founder's online presence contributes heavily to the initial growth.
Summary of what's done and stats:
Next challenge: Keep growing. Talk to those first users and improve the product. Find the "fit" we all are looking for.
