- Quick, cheap way to create a simple landing pages for your (multiple) startups. Only $20 a year for 10 sites.
Carrd is the most amazing web building platform I've seen to date- and trust me, I've tried everything. You start off with a blank page, or choose from expertly-designed templates, then you can build your own site with content LEGOs: drag text under an image, make a row of links across the top, or even add some of your own code.
When you discover control bars that let you break your site into pages, though, it's when everything changes: Carrd goes from letting you create business-card like pages to making full-blown websites for anything- home base for your app with dedicated support and contact pages, a sign-up form for an event that plugs names and comments into a Google sheet, ANYTHING (how do I make extra bold?)
Carrd is now my go-to tool for anything web-building related. I made a website for a friend and even made a few bucks off it. I'm also teaching an HTML class for my homeschool support group and there will be a whole lesson on Carrd!
I just want to say thanks to @ajlkn for my favorite website for websites, ever.
Very intuitive. I created the site serialmarketers.net in a few minutes, customizing the fonts pretty easily. My site looks great, and even better on mobile. The $20 custom domain upgrade is a pretty good deal.
- Beth Hudson made this productStartups are all about building a great team of people. Sure, you can have an innovative product, but do you have the right people to get it going? Recruitee is an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) that is affordable and allows for collaborative hiring. This way, you can find the minds that mesh best with your startup's ultimate goals and values.
- @jaredsilver if your startup is bringing a new hardgood to the market, Kickstarter is a great way to test market demand (validate) and *hopefully* launch. The whole exercise makes you finely tune your messaging, and your numbers.
- It isn't a startup without a Medium article! All kidding aside, Medium let's your biggest fans get the inside scoop and a better understanding of what you're trying to do with your startup. I highly recommend having a presence there, if not starting a publication to curate all the articles related to your company.
I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.
Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.
My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features
I've used many blog editors out there, and none has proven to be as easy and user friendly as Medium.
- I've used the business model canvas (and canvases like it) for years as part of validating new products and businesses, including my current business. It's a great way to work through the high risk portions of a business model. It's easy to use (I like to print it out in large format and then use sticky notes for discussion).
Usually my thoght process goes from general idea to multiple sub-ideas until I get to doable tasks. No other app that I've tried allows you to do this the way Workflowy does. They all let you group by tag, or notebooks or whatever but they are usually one level grups.
Best outline and note-taking app for me.
Using WF for:
- projects list
- clients list
- "inbox", "tasks" and "later" lists in kinda GTDish style
- quick note taking during meetings and
Using WF everyday for two years, happy with it's simple efficiency. No automation at all, but you can invent any kind of workflow using tags and search. Lately company significantly improved their Android app, but it still need more.
Great and simple tool for analytics of your website / online app, love that it's for free :)
I used it for about a year on several apps we produced to monitor user actions. It's definitely a great tool !
