Is there a best practice roadmap based on proof of concepts methods when you release a webapplication / startup as a 1-man "company" ?
There are several options I have been looking at for getting out a beta:
- Beta phase with a special code to enter in signup form to get access, limit users in batches of 100
- Pre signup form where you can signup and share invitation links with freinds, to create a boost and perhaps create some more interested users and have a big mailinglist you can target when going for a launch?
Im coding and developing this project on my own in my spare time, so there is no real investments but lots and lots of free time, I started coding last year and now heading to a first minimal version as beta with minimal featureset implemented.
What would be good practice in terms of marketing / releasing my startup without lots of money investments? Any general ideas suggestions are welcome.
Sometimes its hard to still believe in it, to see it finally in the wild since you spend so many hours looking at the design the code, etc.
