Meet your heroes

Hi. Paying for access to quality interviews is nothing new in the startup space. Check out Mixergy. mixergy.com/. The challenge is to distinguish what your interviews from the many podcasts etc. Good luck

Making www.nocsdegree.com and https://nocsok.com

Thanks man - the first one went well!

To the fathers and mothers here - how do you manage your day with a full-time job, kids and your side-projects?

Thanks for the helpful answers. There is a WIP Parents Channel in Telegram - maybe useful to revive. Just search wipparents in Telegram and join.

Do you use a workflow manager like Shift or Kiwi?

Have not used this much, but provides seperate workspaces. getferdi.com/ (free) which is based on meetfranz.com (paid). I do not understand the relationship between the two. Also what @Ashfame said

Just launched the beta for my membership plugin. What's it lacking?

Hi Lesley. Apologies for the delay in replying. Paid subscriptions for newsletters is an undeserved niche. Feel free to DM me - happy to chat about the development etc.

Just launched the beta for my membership plugin. What's it lacking?

Hi. I have bought and used nearly every major WP membership plugin. Member Hero looks like an interesting addition to a growing list of plugins. Hopefully, my comments are useful. In sum , I think you need to focus on differentiating the plugin and focusing in one area/audience. First, WP is all about integrations, especially to mailing lists. I think there are integrations missing for large email marketing services like MailJet. Everyone integrates with MailChimp, ConvertKit etc - maybe focus on providers with fewer integrations, but which have large audiences. If you build the integration these companies may promote to their list - which would be huge. Maybe even check out options like Sendy. Second, the profile page on Member Hero looks really good. I have never understood the seperation in many plugins between restricting content on the one hand, and user profile on the other hand. Building out a fuller user profile within your membership plugin, may offer something of a differentiator. Third, I personally do not use page builders, but creating blocks specific to page builers will open up your market to designers and differentiate your plugin. Fourth, maybe focus on a specific audience - e.g. sports clubs. Last point - provide the add ons as an lifetime deal not 24 months - unfortunately early adopters expect lifetime deals at $49. I will take the plugin for a spin, when next I am working locally. Good luck.

Building Member Hero, a WordPress plugin to create memberships, premium publications and paid newsletters. Also enjoy climbing, ultimate frisbee and freediving.

Oh man! This is amazing feedback! Thank you!!! We've been completely re-working our plugin to focus on people who want to turn on paid subscriptions for their newsletter. Hopefully this audience works better, it seems slightly underserved right now.

Unfortunately, we're also working on Mailchimp right now too. haha But might link up with something like Mailpoet in the future so someone can do end-to-end email newsletter through WordPress.

Thanks for the feedback on the pricing. You're totally right. Will fix it once we launch our new version.

Is there a website where I can look for news articles about my app?

Have has the same experience, but my apps are in english. A couple of ideas 1. check your stats and look for incoming links. works surprisingly well. 2. use one of the backlink checker services - again i am not certain if every link is included. 3. i am going to setup a google alert.

Looking for honest feedback on my landing page

good job. no longer lazy to load :) Lazy is a great idea and I think one that will take off. Good luck

🙏 I trust your vision Ebrahim 🚀😬

Roast Write Invisible

Hi. Progress is good, and I am having fun. I build this for myself, and use it everyday. I like the idea of linking this to a course. Working towards getting lots of "stuff" sorted out before NaNoWriMo, and hoping authors will get some writing done. Thanks for the suggestion of linking to a course - it is an interesting and helpful idea.

Roast my idea (local mentor/mentee system)

I have no idea if this will work, although I hope it will. I would try setting up a group with a telegram group or clack channel for the area and see how that goes.Than take the next step once demand is validated.
