Ever lost track of your projects? Hey, I'm Kaspars Sprogis and I made Growth Race so it never happens again! If you're a maker like me, you might have a few projects under your belt already. Or maybe you have one, but you're struggling to keep up. And even though it feels great to be at the edge of innovation, it's hell to monitor all of it! At some point, Google Analytics just doesn't cut it. Not to mention that as soon as you start something new, the old projects begin to lag behind. Instead of going with what was out there already - I decided to make something that will help ME, and hopefully help YOU keep track of all of our projects and save our precious time. And so the Growth Race idea was born - a dashboard where you can monitor all of your projects' metrics in a single view (Google Analytics, Twitter followers, etc.) and receive notifications about important events, such as alarming you that something went terribly wrong! I believe we are all busy enough without doing things a simple tool can do for us. Hope you find it useful!

Thought about doing something similar, but was put off as I realised I was building pretty much a vanity metrics tracker. Intrigued to hear your thoughts on that front πŸ‘

@fredrivett My thoughts... Yes it might happen as you said if social comparisons were public. Projects shouldn't race so much for numbers, more for a quality of product. However it is good to get overview of what happens all at once "privately", which is why i decided to make Growth Race the way it is.

Cool tool! Signed up with four of my sites & no longer have to navigate GA (which is pretty horrible IMO)

@ramykhuffash Thanks! :) Same here. Each morning navigating through all projects in GA was reason Nr1 why i decided i need to build this tool.

What i'd really like to see here is a "real time" overview screen with all my projects included...

@danielkempe Thanks for good suggestion. I have this feature in mind for a while and it could be implemented in a few minutes, but i was a bit afraid of Product Hunt effect and the API limits i can reach once i add real time chart, somebody will just keep refreshing :) But once traffic will settle down, i think i might add it.

@kasparssprogis This is pretty amazing, but totally agree with @danielkempe here. Growth Race would be huge for people on http://creatorslog.com! So many people have multiple projects...

@sethlouey @danielkempe Thanks. I would love to see realtime as well :) Will add this feature to top priority. I will take a look into CreatorsLog as well. Makers are the ones who would definitely benefit the most.

@danielkempe @sethlouey Just added "real time" Google Analytics along with other updates which i will announce on social accounts ;) Almost real time of course, as much as GA allows it, looks like ~1h hour cache there is anyway at their side, so i added 1h delay on this side too.

Hey Kaspar! Great work! Love the design as well :) Apart from "digital vigilance" - can I race against other startups? I mean it might be cool to have a public growth race between startups. Probably a bit different what you've built but from a spectators point it would be cool to view such races and from participants - it might give that extra kick in a but sometimes needed to push the product forward.

@kristapslazda Thanks! That would be a cool side-project. I am already tracking top Electronics, Software and Auto industry brands in my profile out of curiosity. However big names can use tools like Google Trends, smaller brands might be much more sensitive to such public data and comparisons. But very interesting direction such idea can lead to!

@bogomep 12$ is the new price, so the discount actually is more than 50% - 13$ :) I decided to round up a bit.

@tribaling Sorry about that, apparently some browsers on some versions needed a small fix for certificates on nginx. Now it is fixed!

@kasparssprogis Awesome count me in, considering I have at least 15 projects at any given time of the day :)

@tribaling 15 projects - that's serious and awesome! :) Let me know if you have any questions / feedback / wishlist with features. This is just a beginning, i needed to launch at some point, but feature list is large. Will be working on adding more metrics, more domain analyze/rank/comparison tools. Tracking more social activities, sharing dashboard projects/groups etc. So stay tuned!

@kasparssprogis Thanks, I hooked up a project to play around. What I think is the next step is the ability to define my KPI for the projects. That also means I need the ability to define what to pull out of GA, like goals etc

Hi @kasparssprogis would you consider including a free tier for those with only one project?

@ayo_af Not yet, but probably in nearest future. The thing is I have limited API request rates per day, so I am afraid free users can use all these rates. But am looking forward to offer some free plan for startups. At the same time, if you want I can prolong your trial period for Basic plan for a more time.
