We finally launched last our SAAS website last night!
Our aim is to make internal meetings as efficient as possible, and we’re starting with a very basic meeting room calendar/booking system right now.
We’ve got lots more ideas of areas to go but we just wanted to get it into the hands of some initial test customers and get some feedback. We (my partner and I) finally got all the paperwork and payment processing done so we did a soft launch last night.
If anyone is interested in the tech stack, we’re using Rails, bootstrap (as a developer with no design skills, I love this) and Stripe for payments. We’re using Sidekiq for async background tasks and heroku for hosting. We’re also playing with intercom.io, mixpanel, grasshopper (for calls) and a few other things.
Like I said, really early days yet, we’re just getting our feet wet but we’re just happy to have something up.
Here’s how I see our task list at the moment:
- Get some good blog content up there. We have some great blog post ideas and a few drafts, now’s the time to get some stuff up.
- Start talking to our initial test users (these are friends, friends of friends that we’re giving it to free to try out).
- Maybe do a few small PPC campaigns to see what happens. Always be testing.
Anyway, love the podcast and this board, great to have a place to share things with likeminded people. Thanks for reading.
