A Random Person Used the MVP App!

Jesse Sutherland @TheJester12

I was looking through the live database to see if some of the people I've asked to beta test the signature designer had done anything yet and I came across a signature created by a random person who I didn't know!

It turns out that the site is juuuust starting to get a trickle of traffic from DuckDuckGo and Google. This person stumbled across the site, was looking to make a free signature for herself, and used the tool.

I followed up with her afterwards looking for feedback. She said:

"It also was one of the nicest creation tools I've used. Good design, and it gave me a lot of options to work with in creating my own signature. It also resized my image properly to scale! A lot of others don't do that right."

Not a paying customer or anything, but I'm still really excited by this. I think this shows:

A: That with some more effort I'll be able to get some decent SEO traffic to the site.

B: The tool was useful and different enough from the other options out that that it stands out.

Back to building!
