This month I'm going to be #buildinginpublic with @pabloheredia24 & @nocode_buildr for @makerpad's #mpc-t30 challenge.

Our idea is Pheedback.co

Get actionable, unbiased feedback from other makers in <15 minutes

Thread on how we got the landing page up in <30 min 👇
1/ Why Pheedback.co?

As makers, we sometimes hit roadblocks in projects that we might not know how to solve alone

Pheedback helps makers to get actionable, unbiased feedback from other makers in <15 minutes

(in exchange, you give them feedback too!)
2/ Copywriting

We borrowed something from @dannypostmaa's Headlime.io

"Tired of {Problem}? Get started with {Solution} Today!"

Tired of running into a wall with your projects? Get actionable, unbiased feedback in just 15 minutes from other driven makers.
3/ Landing Page

We set up our landing page using @carrd by @ajlkn

Took just 5 minutes to get the template set up with a Pro Account (that I already have from other side projects)

4/ Airtable for collecting information

I show how we set up an @airtable base from scratch.

We will use this to collect Names & Emails
5/ Publishing the Carrd site

This video shows how I put the finishing touches onto the Airtable + Carrd integration, and publish the site to a generic carrd.co page

6/ Buying a Domain

1. Purchased pheedback.co for $7.48 (has free WHOIS Guard)

2. In @Namecheap's Advanced DNS, I made some changes to point the @carrd site to that custom domain

7/ Growth Loops

Inspired by @thisiskp_'s @letterdropio waitlist, we are using clicktotweet.com to drive more shares on social media. Image
8/ Favicon

@pabloheredia24 helped us get a favicon for the site on tablericons.com by @csaba_kissi & @codecalm!

Copied the svg code and edited it a little in @figmadesign
9/ Analytics

Inserted a @googleanalytics code (UA-XXXXXX) directly into Carrd to monitor traffic on the site
10/ Recap of Pheedback.co v1 Tool Stack

Landing Page: @carrd by @ajlkn
Copy: headlime.io by @dannypostmaa
Favicon: tablericons.com
Database: @airtable
Analytics: @googleanalytics
Domain: @Namecheap

Total cost to me: $7.48
11/ If you're a maker who would like some feedback on your builds from other friendly people, in exchange for your feedback, sign up at pheedback.co (and follow us @pheedbackco)

Thanks @nocodeharry for giving us this name - the @LaunchMBA community is awesome!

Working on side projects changed my life's trajectory.

Everyone can start one to create their own luck, just like I have with mine.

Here's why I think they're important:
1/ Side projects are an incredible learning vehicle

Most knowledge is internalized through experience. You'll probably learn a lot better through reading or watching something, then practicing it, than just being stuck in the theory stage.

They enable you to learn by doing.
2/ Side projects help you get hands-on with your passions

You get to work on things you truly love and create stuff you're really passionate about.

Good website copy makes you money.

How do you ensure that you've communicated well?

Use the value, clarity & credibility test:
Check each statement for value, clarity and credibility as you go through the copy.

It should be clear how your product/service can help provide benefit for the user.

For example, make it stupidly obvious how $50 spent can help them generate > $500 in value.

Increase the odds of people sharing your work by implementing easy "click to share" links.

Take the friction out of the process by creating pre-filled tweets for them.

How to do it for free:
1. Go to sharelinkgenerator.com

Type in the words you'd like your customers / readers to share in the text box Image
2. Click "Create the link"

Copy the URL part and link it to a phrase inside your product or newsletter, e.g. "Click here to share" Image

A wantrepreneur is someone who would like to start a business and thinks and talks about doing so, but never gets started.

Don't be a wantrepreneur. Be an entrepreneur.

Here are a few things that differentiate the two:
An entrepreneur builds a specific audience to serve

A wantrepreneur shouts randomly, and assumes customers will find his/her product
An entrepreneur invests in himself/herself (tools, mentors, coaches & guides) and constantly learns

A wantrepreneur does not invest in himself/herself, and tends to gravitate towards downloading a lot of free stuff, but ends up dabbling or not commiting seriously to anything

Validate ideas before throwing insane amounts of resources into them.

If you're building a for-profit business or product that requires significant upfront investment, make sure you validate your idea.

1. Pre-sales

Throw up a quick landing page and collect pre-payments for your idea.

If people are willing to put up cash for your product, it means that they truly value it. I always prefer pre-sales to waiting lists.
2. How do you build a quick landing page?

Use the tools available on @gumroad, or @carrd to do it.

Now, you can even use @stripe's Payment Links to collect payment.
