Our product is an automated machine learning product. If I had to redo one thing, I would have focussed on web application part from day 1. Instead we focussed on getting data science part right first.

Marketing. 1. Setup landing page then site (buy template, use SEO ready software), 2. Setup email signup form, 3. Start talking about it anywhere you can Reddit, Twitter, IndieHackers, etc... Funny all this can be done in 1 day and the breadcrumbs begin. 😂
I would have learned the SEO from day one to get organic traffic.
