There was a void left by people who wanted to reach the Product Hunt community but weren't ready to launch. You had to put a lot of effort into creating a webpage just to do a 'Pre-launch' hunt. That's all simplified now.
We've been using our upcoming page for the last couple of weeks and have collected over 1,000 emails already 😊
Saves days if not weeks by giving you tools to launch and iterate out of the box.
Welcome to the future 🚀
I just created the above landing page for an idea I've been mulling over for a few weeks. I haven't had the time to put together a proper landing page integrated with a mailing list, but this made it super quick and easy.
It would be really nice to have a more slick, eye catching option by default, but as far as the process goes, it's bang on.
Like the landing page feature, MailChimp recently allowed free users to utilize email automation -- which also felt like a reaction to MailerLite's existing service. MailChimp was once a leader, but now it feels like they are plaing catch-up.
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.
Found it to be extremely useful to create a profile site that I can easily share with people so they can find all my social media handles by just going here !
