[Day 7] Zero to MVP in 30 Days — What a bad landing page

I want to go to bed now, but will still write this article. The landing page is online, but I haven’t even tested whether all buttons & analytics work.

In this series I’ll validate a new idea. Read about the concept here (Day 0) and the idea here (Day 1).

I’m sorry, this one will be short, but I guess that I can at least give you a good overview of what I have done today.

I built the landing page. Took way longer than expected. Content was already there, screenshots just had to be shot (+content for table created).
Then I had to edit some things about the HTML-Template I bought. I figured out it comes with PHP files for form handling :(
But Netlify forms were integrated quickly :)

Using Segment is a breeze. I love it. Everything was set up in one or two minutes, including Mixpanel, GA, Drift. I also copied over some code to open Drift when someone clicks contact in the nav.
But what will I do when I hit that free plan limit? That will be soon …

I miss a favicon. I also don’t have a logo yet, but I like what I have now, as I’ll also use system fonts for the app. I’ll try how the landing page looks like with San Fransisco (mac’s system font) tomorrow.

I’ll also tell people about the landing page tomorrow.

The plan for tomorrow

Product work
Talk to people

I basically do that all the time, sometimes that’s super boring, sometimes exciting. I’ll share more about the product when, well, I share the product.
