Oh it's absolutely the future. Duolingo is a surface-level attempt. You need GTA4 for learning. When that happens, that'll be it for schools.

Oh true! Just went through those as well. So fun.

This is interesting. Out of curiosity, what are people regularly reading? Newsletters / substacks / news sites etc?

Congrats all!

Starview concept is really cool, would be surprised if others have yet to try something similar. Seems inevitable.

How will you push this post to the #1 spot? :)

Have you launched before or is this the first time?

What are all of the channels you're hitting in order to drum up excitement about the post? Am always curious to hear how much of it is personal emails / DMs, etc.

What if you focused on making just enough from those initial customers to farm out the content side? Then you're not charged with doing it and it takes up much less of your time.

Where are you in your product's life? The earlier you are, the closer you should be to your customers at the expense of larger growth efforts.

Relevant to marketing channels and a favorite article of mine: https://medium.com/@yegg/the-19-channels-you-can-use-to-get-traction-93c762d19339.

He also has a book on the subject (which doesn't offer too much more than the blog itself, so no need to buy it).

I think you can change the nature of this post to make it more exciting and engaging. When posting to a community, you shouldn't start with "please visit [insert my site]." Start with your story, maybe a bit of the reason why you're building this product, and then at the end ask folks if the idea resonates. If it does, encourage them to fill out a survey... OR even better, just get their email and send the survey later.

What was the last survey you took that didn't have to do with your company? What compelled you to take it? I can't imagine it was a random blast into an online community. Far and away, personalization is the way to go on these things.
