This is my first post. Been listening to Startup Nation for a while on KTTH radio here in Seattle. I`m a web developer and I`ve always considered launching a series of website`s to be the the "smartest" approach for me the launch a Startup. My first website came out of a little productivity tool I built for myself. It lets users setup daily goals (workout, study, cold call, etc) and then track their progress on each goal with a single click. Every other app I`ve played with was too complex so I built something that doesn`t require users to waste valuable brain power on the tracking part of accomplishing their goals. It uses all the latest Web 2.0 goodstuff like Ajax and such.
I launched it yesterday and went from 5 beta testers to 140 users in less than a day. I think just about anyone (especially the entrepreneurial type) will be able to get a lot out of the app so I invite you all to take a look:
Please let me know if you have any feedback or ideas to improve the site. I`m also looking for great (cheap!) marketing ideas.
