The feedback on the homepage is clear, will fix that.
Re: data exports
It feels wrong to me when I pay for a service and they take my data hostage. I understand it's a common business practice to create a vendor lock-in, but feels hostile to me.
Re: radically different
I'm not sure what exactly it should be. This isn't it, but just to give you an idea of thinking out of the box: everyone's stats are open to each other. So by joining Simple Analytics you're able to benchmark your stats compared to other websites. (e.g. to determine if your 62% bounce rate is good or bad, etc.)
To find such an idea (but an actual good one) you need to talk extensively to your customers and understand their deeper business needs. For example for me with regards to Startup Jobs I have these questions:
These are great questions. I can definitely do something to help answer those.
The more I think about it the more sense this makes. I feel like I need to grow in features that help website owner with whatever problems they encounter. So why limit it to analytics?
Yeah nobody wants analytics. People want actionable insights. Analytics are just a way to get there.
Just had a quick glance.. Nice layout.. But felt that the home page could you a nice big image on top - showing the product. Something felt missing on top of the home page - guessing it is the product pictures. Also, the 3 buttons below the pricing seems off on the desktop. Alignment is right and all that - but for some reason it feels too cluttered - maybe push the buttons into each respective pricing div.. The pricing buttons plus the 'send me demo' buttons felt a little crowded. Rest all looking good. Congrats!
Your landingpage looks quite nice.
However just at looking at it, it is not clear for me that "friendly analytics" mean privacy first.
And IMO you should push that privacy aspect. I guess it will sell well, because of GDPR. People are now way more concerned about privacy. And privacy first products will need to come up.
However, as I am EU based I would not use your service, because of GDPR.
I think you will need to enable data export in the starter plan, because of Art. 20 GDPR "Right to data portability".
So even you are not collecting as much information as google, you are processing data and for any EU company it is important to know where the servers are located. However I can't find anything about it. Are there located in the EU ? Are they in the US? Are you a PrivacyShield member?
The video is quite nice, however pretty unimportant for me . I would rather see some screenshots of the product in action.
First of all, I love the concept of SimpleAnalytics.
It's simple and privacy-friendly. I will definitely use it when my project went live.
I hope my feedback will help you even a bit :)
Context: Privacy matters me a lot. I use the tools listed on privacytools.io. I even own some self-hosted apps and emails on Swiss server. I'm angry with the big corps take advantage of our data. I care about my audiences' data as much as I care about my privacy.
Is it definitely cookies free? I remember some debate on here about gdpr and whether you used some cookies or not.
Yes, cookie free forever. That is for the scripts on peoples website. To login on SA you need a cookie of course.
