Hey PH'ers! @pjrvs, @zackgilbert, and I created YourPack for anyone who has a community and wants to give that community a place to meet, search, and further connect with other members. This isn't a social network. We aren't trying to compete with Slack. It's a simple tool that let's authors, online course creators, bloggers, vloggers, SaaS companies, Hummingbird Club Organizers, etc, bring all their fans/followers/customers together in one place to learn more about each other and connect. We didn't enjoy hanging out in Facebook Groups or on forums, so we built a product we'd want to use for our communities. We just launched Founding Memberships and will soon be moving to Monthly Memberships. You can view a Demo Pack here: https://demo.yourpack.co/

This looks pretty awesome! When I get $400 I want to sign up for the founding membership. Loads of things I can think for this!!! Landing page may be a bit confusing. Would suggest making it easier for people to checkout the demo video.

@bentossell have you seen this? We use it at my coworking space: https://slackdirectory.herokuapp...

@prestonattebery I havent - my reservation with that is that slack communities are difficult to do well with lots of people. This is interesting way to see who is in the collective group - not necessarily needing a slack group with it. Lots of groups can lead to an overload for sure. I have like 10 on my slack - look at 3 max (2 are work related)
PA@prestonattebery · Founder + Designer at DesignCue
@bentossell Fair enough. We have a slack community for our entire building. Slack facilitates the day-to-day conversations while we have a directory for info reasons only. It's less of a way to "build community" and more of a way to organize info about the existing members.

@prestonattebery yeh for sure.. I think im thinking of it in terms of little projects I have ideas for - building out targeted, specific, communities around X
PA@prestonattebery · Founder + Designer at DesignCue
@bentossell True, in that case. I would just create a basecamp and invite everyone involved.
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Something new
@prestonattebery similarly, basecamp was built for companies and is certainly useful in community aspects. but this is built for communities. so it's interesting to me

@prestonattebery @bentossell Curious: Do you have to setup Heroku for this? That's why we built YourPack the way we did, it's completely setup/install-free.

@prestonattebery @bentossell can you put me in touch with Jared? Also, would love to connect, love DesignCue 😸 🙌🏼

@prestonattebery @bentossell I think this is why they now have Enterprise Grid, which our company of 1800+ is considering https://slack.com/enterprise. Apparently, it was built for IBM since they had roughly 200+ different Teams running and wanted a way to connect them all.

I'm very intrigued and dig the design, but the landing page leaves me confused as to what this is for, to be honest. 🤔
Joe @itsjoeturner · Designer @ Discover Places
@rrhoover Same here. I also don't really see a feature list worthy of the cost.

@rrhoover we wanted to zig a bit on the landing page... not go the standard route of icons, feature list, etc that all SaaS companies go. Plus, we can always adjust based on feedback like this :)

I like this a lot, but $400 without a trial seems a tad punchy
Brendan Hufford@brendanhufford · SEO Specialist
@nickclement It'd seem like it, but my thinking is that if you have an online community that provides you enough income to support your lifestyle, $400 isn't much considering the added benefit.

@nickclement Hey Nick! Yep, we'll have monthly memberships and a free trial down the road, but we've found a fun way to launch our software products: Founding Memberships (giving our audience a great one-time deal) >> Once they're gone, close down membership and learn from users >> Once we've learned and added more features >> Monthly Memberships w/ trial yadda yadda :)
Nick Clement@nickclement · Creative Director, Product Designer
@brendanhufford Or an online community that doesn't make much money but is a bit more altruistic?
Nick Clement@nickclement · Creative Director, Product Designer
@jasondoesstuff Cool, nice idea.
Brendan Hufford@brendanhufford · SEO Specialist
@nickclement Good point. My mom runs a nonprofit and she has people opt into a Google form and has a master sheet with contact and other info that everybody is then shared on. A great option if it's not a community that pays for itself.

Interesting concept. I was looking for something like this to help aggregate all the startups and people interested in startups in my city. I will have to wait for the monthly service though...
