I wanted to change sign up to be a bit better. The first issue I wanted to tackle was the facebook in-app browser kept taking users out of the normal flow and making them re-confirm all their info and deal with a cumbersome captcha. The second issue was that I wasn’t collecting airport codes.
As soon as I woke up, I checked Mailchimp and was please to find around 60 signups. This might be chump change for some, but for me it felt great. Not even 24 hours in and I already have a bunch of people interested and the general vibe has been positive.
Today was a very exciting day. It was the first day of the 30 day journey of creating my startup. It’s called Weekendr, a notification system for weekend travelers. Essentially, it will notify you whenever there are roundtrip tickets, from Friday to Sunday, leaving from your city for under $200.
