I am doing some marketing: i.e. engaging into online discussions when the topic is selling lists, tables, or data. As a hands-on dev, it turns out it is the most challenging thing to do for me. I will soon write down when I have any update about this.
In the meantime, I slightly improved the platform following some feedback:
- I revised pricing again. Now you can choose between a $0 dollar plan and a $10 plan. There was no point in keeping prices high at this stage.
- I double checked grammar in the landing page and added use-case examples https://tabslu.com/#examples
I also got quite useful feedback about comparing Tabslu to Gumroad. I copy and paste it here (I asked for permission):
- I'm a bit afraid of international sales taxes, VAT... so it's great to have Gumroad take care of that for me
- I like the ease to make a nice Gumroad landing page. Seeing https://tabslu.com/abc makes me afraid that folks won't understand what I sell (comparing it to https://gumroad.com/l/top-shopify-stores).
- Even though I've never had sales with Gumroad marketplace, they do list my product on a marketplace giving it more visibility.
These are very good points:
- I hadn't noticed that Gumroad automatically computes VAT. I always thought that Stripe was the best choice in terms of online payments. I will see what I can do about this.
- This was an actionable point. I improved each landing page when you sell a table with: some preview, and optional title and description. Here is an example: https://tabslu.com/abc
- Another good point. This is something I would implement if the platform takes off.
