The 3 things that got us to 3000 users
We just passed 3000 users at StoryPrompt with a team of two. Here are 3 things that helped us get there:
🚀 Launch early and iterate
What you think your product is when you launch will never be the same a year later. Launch early, live for customer feedback, and iterate.
StoryPrompt began as a video collection tool and has evolved into a video-first community platform.
Products always evolve. The sooner you launch, the sooner you learn.
📣 Build in public
Create a community and collaborate with your users. Share what you’re building. Open up your roadmap. And let them be a part of the journey.
At StoryPrompt, we invite every user to join our community. We all benefit. They get fast, face-to-face support. And we get regular feedback on the things we’re building.
In fact, our user community just named our newest feature, Huddles!
🔁 Build viral loops into your product
People buy products used by other people just like them. Build a feature or product that invites others in and let your product do the selling.
At StoryPrompt, not only can our users share links to collect video content, but they can also invite members to join them in a community space.
Social proof plus authority is a powerful combination. And when your product is introduced by one user to another, the likelihood of that person becoming a customer significantly increases.
If you want free advice on growing your own business or launching a product, stop by my always-open office hours and ask me a question.
See you there!
