Very cool. I had a conversation with someone recently who was running a tutoring service for young kids. They had a ceiling on growth by trying to go through the parents. Once they tried referral through the kids - i.e. "bring your friend and XYZ will happen!" then that worked really well.
The best examples of this are email service providers. I.e. Mixmax, Superhuman, "Sent from iOS" – a little ID tag on every email sent. Those drove massive, massive growth. Was reading about hotmail -- that's how they did it.
Interesting! Frontier as a mechanism to generate meetups.
Interesting! I feel like due diligence is more appropriate later stage. Have you gone through the process yourself? I also don't know if a due diligence package entails capable leadership. That seems more like good accounting.
Mostly on subreddits for now... I made it a point to spend time in the Reddit participating daily for two weeks before shilling my work. It's been effective. Making a bunch of friends in the space.
Better than I hoped!! :) Decent amount of activity and a lot of love for what we're doing. It's also rocket fuel for the engineer I work with.
I invited a bunch of users into a Discord today... an experiment in having them talk to each other, in addition to talking to us. A many-to-many, as opposed to one-to-many. Not as high immediate activity than I would've wanted, but still some action and a good starting point. Once we get 20+ people in there, I think it'll gain momentum.
Oh very, very interesting. Super helpful, thanks.
And that frame of mind - that their real benefit is marketing - makes sense. Have you ever considered the crowdfunding route?
Banana........ Booste feels like what the company should be called. Banana is a bold rebrand. But fun. I like it.
