So I’m triyng to gauge some interest and get some emails before I start building this out more, but at the same time this is a product I’m actually going to be building for myself to use as well.
I have a landing page with some copy and a mailing list sign up. No screenshots yet unfortunately.

So there are definitely a few people doing this who seemingly have more dev/design/marketing power than just me alone can do. However going into a place with some competition seems a lot better compared to my last product idea, an ebook for some very unpopular software. At least it shows that the market exists!
I’ve looked at some online broadcasting forums and a common theme I see is people looking for better auto DJ and playlist controls, scheduling tools, how to get more listeners, etc. So I feel like I could address those pains with software.
I haven’t the slightest idea on how to find customers. I’ve started searching for stations and cold emailing some. Most station owners seem like they are running on the tiniest shoestring budgets, often with a paypal ‘donate’ button somewhere on the page. I haven’t gotten any responses yet.
How can I find customers who are willing to pay more than $9 a month, with places like this offering stream hosting for under $5 and even “free” plans? Hopefully I can avoid the ‘race to the bottom’.
I plan to start doing some content marketing, via a blog, about the space as well.
