Ha! Clever idea, but for many it's going to be insanely noisy. Idea: could you add a setting to only ding every X visitors, @ivbran? For example, if a site gets 5k visitors on a typical day, perhaps it dings for every 1,000th visit?

@rrhoover Hey Ryan, thanks for stopping by! :) This certainly sounds like a great idea for future development. My idea was to be lean from the very beginning, starting with a small target group - early stage websites. That's why there are no settings in this version. :)

@rrhoover @heinzawhtet This is in the roadmap, yes. In fact, the idea of Startup Bell came from this well-established practice in some of the sales teams, where they ring the bell whenever somebody from the team closes the deal. :)

@ivbran @rrhoover @heinzawhtet Yeah! I second that too. Cha Ching! On every sale, that would be great.

Love this. But will need a sound other than the doorbell so that my dog doesn’t go insane all day long.

@ivbran it reminds me of the quaint old country grocery stores where a bell would ring the moment you walk in the door (actually, that would be a nice sound to add! it's less of a doorbell sound, and more of a happy chime) I'll definitely be using this with my next product launch. Should help with motivation 💪

Ding dong - time to celebrate. Great little extension :)

Pros:

Works great

Cons:

As others have suggested: different events would be great for v2 :)
