Day 56-57 - Marketing material and Beta List submission

life UserBit entrepreneurship

Marketing material

I had a feeling that the landing page, specially the tag line of “A smarter home for your UX process” just wasn’t clear enough. Specifically, it didn’t answer the two questions I would want answered when I visit a product’s landing page:

  1. What is it?
  2. Why should I sign up?

So I spent some time re-thinking the copy of landing page and ultimately I came up with:

UX tools for delivering effective results, faster

What is it? A set of UX tools Why should I sign up? to deliver effective results faster

I also went through the rest of the page and redid some of that as well.

Submission to BetaList

I debated about doing this. I heard a lot of mixed feedback regarding this channel but in the end I thought it’s worth a try. I’m due to be featured tomorrow so lets see. Expectations:

  1. Most people will not convert simply because betalist seems to work better for products that have a mass apeal not ones that are built for niche market
  2. I need a little more exposure and internet footprint to rank higher in google searches
  3. The few signups that will come, will hopefully help me identify where the leaks are in UserBit


Building a product by yourself can get somewhat lonely. Out of necessity I got into listening to podcasts. I find it quite effective both from entertainment/learning perspective and also from ‘let it go on in the background so you don’t feel like you’re alone’ perspective. I’ve mostly been listening to startup podcasts… good stuff.
