The past two days have been really, really great. With a lot of help from Kyle we’ve finally been able to get the front page completed. We made it very obvious that we’re still pre-release and soliciting early access users at this point. We also added a pricing page even though our prices have yet to be set. I think when people come to a site like this, often the first they do is click on the Pricing page to make sure what they’re looking at is within their budget, so we needed to have one, too, even if there’re no prices yet. But we do have the early access button there as well.

Often the best thing you can do to solve a problem is to step away from it for a while and come back to it later with fresh eyes.

Today we also got the Privacy Policy page up. All that’s left is the Terms of Service and About Us and then we’re finally ready to start the cold email sequence and other marketing comfortable in the knowledge we’ve got a site we’re not embarrassed about.

One of the most important things I’ve learned during this process is a lesson I’ve also learned during coding and yet somehow manage to forget time and time again. Often the best thing you can do to solve a problem is to step away from it for a while and come back to it later with fresh eyes. I can’t count the number of times I’ve banged my head against the wall at night trying to figure something out only to wake up the next morning and have it solved within 15 minutes. The same thing applies to marketing. When you’re looking at the same stuff hour after hour trying to get it just right, you can easily lose sight of the big picture. Put it away, come back later, and you might find, with fresh eyes, solutions become very obvious.
