Hi Makers! Reply to share what you're working on this week, we can keep each other motivated and maybe even help. This week I'm focused on ways to increase discovery of our weekly podcast, speaking to media platforms and learning what other podcasts do to get featured on Apple Podcasts, etc. What are you working on?

@imdeepjoshi what's the design system?

@abadesi "A design system is a collection of reusable components, guided by clear standards, that can be assembled together to build any number of applications. A design system is a set of interconnected patterns and shared practice coherently organized to achieve the purpose of digital product"
Co-founder of deprocrastination.co
Working on Deprocrastination and my own collection of the most useful ideas I've found as a maker - calling it Vita's Versatile Vault. We also have some courses on our site that we haven't been working on much, so I might take a look at those - improve how they're presented and the action steps and explanations within.

I plan to launch Ipregistry.co Tomorrow on Product Hunt so I am working on promo materials and plan some marketing stuff. Any ideas for a successful launch are welcome :) Other than that, I will also focus on the rebranding of Noticeable.io but that's a long road.

Building Hellonext (hellonext.co)
We reached a 100 users on HearApp - https://hearapp.co over the weekend. However the number of people who actually schedule a meeting is incredibly less. So I'm trying to come up with some UX and on boarding workflows that can better things. Oh, and worked on a Google cal integration so hopefully that increases traction!

@imswaathik nice stuff! how will you increase conversions for folks who schedule a meeting?
Building Hellonext (hellonext.co)
@abadesi Well I'm trying to take it step by step. My problem right now is that not everyone who signs up creates a meetings. So I'm solving that by adding better UX and on boarding. My hope is that this causes a ripple effect and makes the user create more meetings.

@nayamoss I'd love to learn what you learned from startup school; do you have a blog?
Share
Founder & CEO, Hustle Crew
@nayamoss Naya you are on fire!! Keep us posted.

@eve_hammond Honestly most of what I learned from Startup School I have already read from the YC blog and resource page. It's more up to date content and relevant to right now. Surprisingly i'm seeing SO many people drop out. But I find it really valuable because my market is startup founders. When I started my company I was afraid founders wouldn't see the value of my product so early on. But so far every week i've gotten really great feedback and everyone has said they understand my product. 😭no I seriously need to write more I have so much of my tech journey to tell, but its hard to get the words out. I do have a goal of writing about my 25 lessons by age 25. Open to talk more, naya@culturefiy.tech πŸ˜€.
Creative Technologist
@abadesi 😭, omg Thank you Abadesi! I'm trying SO hard. I'm actually having 2nd thoughts about Startup Weekend. It's the woman edition and apparently you aren't allowed to bring a pre-existing business. There's another pitch competition coming up in 2.5 weeks and I think it will be more beneficial. Major plus, that one i'll be sponsored. I'll definitely keep everyone posted πŸ˜€.
Get people on our pre-launch list @ audiencemoney.com. We also just open our referral program for new comers with Growsurf (if you know)

We just launched Bookself on PH 😁 We'll use the feedback to guide us whether to pursue premium in-app audiobook ebook content or social 2.0 features like expanding our live chat features for book clubs, topics, author Q&As and live events. What do you think?

Creative Technologist
@miles_scherrer If there was a way to integrate with audible, or create an audible replacement within the app. I would 100% pay for premium.

@nayamoss Cool and thanks for the input! We actually have in-app premium audiobooks almost fully integrated and hope to be able to launch within the coming month or two. While the app currently resembles Goodreads, we are actually more inspired by social reading apps in China like Tencent WeRead and QQ Reading who combine both digital book consumption and community in one.

@nayamoss @miles_scherrer I'm so excited for this! I never got into Goodreads because of the UI but *love* the social aspect of sharing and reflecting on content I've consumed.

@nayamoss @abadesi Hope you like it! With audiobook and ebook content we think that the social features can be further improved by sharing bookmarks or quotes and discussing chapters and passages. It takes a while to get the partnerships needed in place but hope to have it in place in a couple of months.

App launch and research for a side idea! Stay tuned :)

@eve_hammond @robert_zalaudek I like the Slack integration and how it snoozes notifications in a blanket way across the device. That said I the video could get the point across in half the time.
Diving Deep For IT Talent
@eve_hammond @abadesi Thank you so much for the feedback. It's my first video in a long time so a bit rusty. I'm sure that they'll get better as I do more. Many thanks again.
