I read a few great email newsletters and noticed they were all hacking together some weird solutions to the same problem of booking out advertising space. Sponsaurus provides them with a better, hassle-free tool.

August 15, 2021 Launched the MVP!

After a bit of a grind, I finally hit publish on the new marketing site for my app.
In tandem, I've started accepting my first alpha users to help get feedback and test things out!

Even though it's still early days, I've already learnt a whole heap of stuff —

I've definitely had to stretch myself on the technical side of things. Even though I'm very comfortable hacking away at projects, actually building something to completion, with all the polish you'd expect of a proper app, has been really tricky! And there's definitely tooooons more work to be done. But I've found the whole thing very rewarding overall.

I've also gotten out of my comfort zone on the marketing side of things and tried to be a bigger part of IndieHackers and Twitter communities.
The whole build in public movement has been gaining momentum for a while now, and I thought I'd give it a go (follow along with me! @hrrsnbbnt).
The community on Twitter, as well as here on IH, has been super motivating and supportive.
Normally I tend to lurk and not engage much, but I'm really glad I've made the effort to post more and put things out there.

The next step is bringing on some early users, and hopefully starting to make a bit of $. We'll see ;p
