- What did we do after our first unsuccessful attempt at launching a product? We tried to make another product and made a lot of the same mistakes again! This experience taught us that we needed to get more serious about learning about marketing and building our audience.
- If you want to start a business it's pretty difficult to get noticed and find users if you're not putting yourself out there, but how does one do that without feeling awkward?
This is the first post that will actually talk about a real
SaaS-attempt. As some commenters have pointed out, previous posts
were a bit more.. meta. That’s fine, we own that, we were just
setting the scene a bit. Today we’ll be talking about
GoDutch.cash, one of our projects.
- We recently came across the Release Notes podcast, and through that we found out about Marketing for Developers, a book by Justin Jackson. One great point this book makes is that it's important to have a goal. In that spirit, we will try to formulate our goal, and in the spirit of this blog, we're putting it out here in the open. Maybe that'll keep us accountable!
It’s funny, it shouldn’t really matter who is writing a particular
thing, should it? I guess especially for software-dev types such as
ourselves, that is a line of thinking I wouldn’t be surprised to hear.
- This is a brief introductory post. We want to start a SaaS product, and while there seem to be awfully many "founder stories" around of people magically getting 50k downloads, $10k MRR, etc., we don't often hear about the long, rocky path to sustainable success.
