Hit 50+ email sign ups

Chris Spagnuolo @cspags

I've never been great about validating my ideas before building them, so I'm trying to change that with https://wfboost.com.

For a while, I'd been helping several people add features to their Webflow sites via custom scripts that I had written. I thought that I could productize the work I was doing, which would allow others to add those same features to their Webflow sites without having to hire a developer like myself.

However, I wanted to make sure this was something enough people actually wanted before I decided to build it. I created a simple landing page with an email sign up form and started promoting it a bit. So far 50+ people have subscribed, which may not sound like a lot, but is far more than I've ever had for a product pre-launch!

I'm now building out the MVP and it is much more motivating knowing that there are people interested in what you're doing. I'm looking forward to getting the first users onboarded within the next week! 🎉
