I just beta launched my website and right now there is only one user signed up for my service (it's only been a day and I'm not marketing it yet). It is highly data driven so without much context, users can't get a feel for the offering or give me feedback before I start marketing the website more.
I wrote a mock data generator that I've been using in development and it works really well, it gives a feel for what the website is with a decent size user base. I'm thinking of running this in production, but adding some type of obvious and apparent tag that says this profile / data is sample data. As more users join, I'll scale back the mock data.
Does anyone have any experience with this or thoughts on this approach?
