I like it ! $29 for 12 months is a real fair price.
Personnaly I will delete the Timer, but add something like 'If you close this discount, it will be gone forever'

Because what if your user is on the subway and don't have a network connection to make the payment in time for example ? Or if they don't found their credit card in time ? etc ...

Do you understand the product?

It's a weekly digest (handpicked) for your Twitter feed

Would it be useful to you and why?
Not really useful for me but can be useful for people who makes a lot of thread to add more details I guess. Or people who Build in public

Thanks Florian

Really cool project, love it!

1 - You handpick discount from Airbnb for Nomad people
2 - I like both displays on the same card

Keep making Side Projects.
You will build trust and self-confidence.

What are your personal goals for 2021?

My 2cts is that 2021 will be the year of the Makers / Creators. You guys are early adopters, and you're going to rule the world! :p So if you're a beginner like me, work on your personal branding and start a community ASAP (I've launched mine using circle.so - I'm bullish on this product)

My personal goal is simple: make enough passive income to quit my shitty job and work less than 2hours / day. Right now, I'm so focused on this goal that I spend way too much time on my computer. But that's the price to pay to end this 9to5 life, I guess!

For what it's worth, one thing I've learned over the years that it's not so much about how much time you spend on the computer as it's about what you spend your time on.

What are your business goals for 2021?

I found a nice niche in 2020 (TailwindCSS). Time to make more passive incomes on this niche and quit my shitty job! I will create multiple products on this niche and market them together like a "package." Nothing too shinny, but probably good ones to make a passive income and focus on building more sophisticated products after.

#mistral : I need to keep improving it over the months and market it better. 80% of my customers are French, so I hope to make more sales around the world.

#mastertailwind (comingsoon) : A visual book to master TailwindCSS, in English. I use Notion & selling it through Gumroad.

#tailwindcourse (coming soon) : A French course to learn TailwindCSS on Udemy

Build a super-secret product with @fotiosdotcom . I've learned a lot talking to Fotios; this guy is like the Wikipedia of stocks market. So I'm really excited to launch something with him!

Which side project should I focus on first?

Don't look for ideas, find problems.

1: Password security tool - Tons of them, and really good ones (free)
2: Novel domain registrar - What do you mean by Novel ?
3: Stock recommendation tool - Stocks are basically gambling, nah? www.forbes.com/sites/rickferr…
4: Slack team building app - More info ?

100% agree with Florian. Focus on solving a need.

Pick a problem that you think is 1) a real problem people are willing to spend money on to solve, 2) you believe you can create a better solution for than what's out there today, and 3) make sure it's something where you can actually reach your target customer.

Roast my current landing page so I can build a better one for PH

1 - Can you identify what problem Entice wants to solve?
I think it's similar to influenswer.com/ by @damon ?

2 - Is there a user-type you think would want this service (yourself, someone you know, etc.)
Probably some people looking to invest in Crypto/stock markets maybe?

It's my own POV, but I think your Landing Page is too vague. There are no examples, and it's not very clear how to signup as an 'expert' or as a 'customer'

Co-Founder @ Entice. Building startups and surfing waves.

Thanks @icesofty ! I would agree on the vagueness- our buyer persona is the white collar class but it's reading too broad at the moment.

Do you continue a startup when circumstances are bad, but interest is there?

Really difficult questions, there are so many unknown parameters.

My 2cts:
As long as there is interest (And by that I mean a REAL interest, not just some curious people), there is a market. COVID or not COVID.

That’s great advice! Thank you, Florian :)
