Who uses ads on their website to generate revenue? Is it worth it?

I’m debating if I should add one to the free tier.

I am learning how social media works for your product.

Learning to make videos of the product to promote how it looks and what it does is way better than just writing something about the product.

What is one advice you would give to someone just starting out?

#buildinpublic
Trying to get better at marketing.

Who’s someone I should follow to grow my marketing skills?

Goal for the month of June is to get at least one person to sign up per day with word of mouth.

What’s your strategy to get users onboard?

2nd project update:

Had 40 people sign up with 4 paid users for access to mvp. Once mvp is built, only 19 sign ups with no paid users.

How do you guys get over this hump?

#buildinpublic
What is the best way to communicate with your users that have already signed up to your product? How do you announce new features to them?

#buildinpublic
Finally sent out my Beta live email.

1 response from a user and 15 sign ups out of 40 emails.

#buildinpublic
So close to launching my new project in beta. Finishing up on a major fix and soon will be sending out emails to our signups!

Really excited for this new adventure!

I have emails of our beta testers on Netlify but I want to email all of them.

Is it best to go through Mailchimp and email them or do I just use my gmail and email them? I worry that the gmail route will send it to their spam folder.

#buildinpublic
New to this beta and talking to users that signed up.

Planning to personally email 40 users and see how I can help fix their issue.

#buildinpublic
Need some advice:

With launching Beta, do you give those who signed up first access to test or do you open it up and allow all to just sign up and test the product?

#buildinpublic
For MVP’s, do you code it to pixel perfect with your design or do you try to get something out there ASAP?

#buildinpublic
My second project mvp is almost done with 31 users signed up and 3 paid users.

Once the mvp is done, my next focus will be talking to the customers and converting them to a paying customer.

#buildinpublic
New project has 30 signed up users and 3 paid users and the product isn’t even built yet.

Starting to build the product now. Hopefully with the product being built, I can get more users.

#buildinpublic
How do you tell users that you won't have the product ready till you get certain number of sign ups?

Do you put it on the landing page or a confirmation email after they sign up?

#buildinpublic
Got my first subscriber to my new product today. Really excited about it. Hoping for more!

#buildinpublic
Launching my 2nd product soon. Instead of building out the whole product, built a LP and going to see if theres interest. If not, scratch and move on!

At most, spent little more than 2 hours on this.

#buildinpublic
What perks do you give to users who sign up and pay to be an early adopter? What are some best perks to give out?

#buildinpublic
It feels like failure to pivot and feel like I should give up, but instead of giving up, I am going to do this properly this time and not repeat the mistakes I made the first time.

#buildinpublic
I learned the following lessons from Kloak: validate before moving forward, and then discuss how to improve the product with customers.

I plan to implement this for my next project.
