Introduce yourself! What are you working on these days?


(Mathieu Guerville) #352

Hi everyone,

I’m Mathieu, a corporate development guy by day (I buy small nice tech companies, AMA if you’re contemplating such a transaction yourself) and a 2-projects guy by night. I’m working on an employee engagement platform called awesomeboss.com with the original founder and a dev, as well as a peer to peer insurance concept. For the latter I happen to be looking for testers, in SF on october 17th (10:30am and 12pm), contact me at @mattmg83 or here if interested

Looking forward to engaging with the community on this platform, thanks Andrew!

(Chris) #355

Thanks Andrew for the invite.

I’m Christopher Moore. My main focus right now is growing the customer base via marketing for a funded Logistics Startup in Hong Kong, floship–setting of systems for lead gen, content/SEO, PR and anything else that comes up. Floship currently grows by helping creators with their crowdfunding fulfillment–we can ship anywhere in the world for near the cost of domestic shipping; and helping e-commerce operators expand their markets via affordable and fast fulfillment B2C anywhere in the world.

Also, working marketing/PR helping a buddy get his curious product off the ground while it’s live and about to reach its funding goal on Indiegogo.

Otherwise, travel, writing, cutting film and languages are my hobbies.


(Mathieu Guerville) #356

Hi Arcade team, we’re going after managers with tools designed just for them. I’ve seen many launch team-oriented solutions and we think having a manager-only focus can help us tailor our offering a bit more and offer some services to Enterprise clients that would complement these other approaches.

It’s live at awesomeboss.com, premium features will roll out by the end of the year. Let’s keep in touch, good luck with your project


(Tanya) #357

HI Andrew,
Thanks for creating this wonderful place where ppl can share their thoughts and experience.

My name is Tanya and I am a Dr. of Online Marketing @Listia.com. Listia is the largest online marketplace to give and get free Stuff! We have million of users and many more are joining every day. We are getting tons of emails from our members thanking us for giving them this place where they can find awesome stuff for free.
For a small company it is a challenge to keep up with high prices for paid marketing and at the same time retain an original idea of keeping everything free for our members.
I would love to here ideas of what worked for other UA, marketing managers that allowed them to keep paid marketing cost down or even find users for free.

Thanks a lot
Tanya

(Fahim) #361

Hi all, my name is Fahim and I am working on an app in one of Andrew’s favorite industries, dating (inside joke). I am launching sneakpeekdating.com , a live video dating service in which we connect people for quick and engaging conversations.

Outside of SneakPeek, I have a background in e-commerce/retail and used to be a Category Manager for one of the largest categories on Amazon. I also consult with brands on how to grow their e-commerce business, and I’m looking into starting an e-commerce incubator for startups interested in the space.

Looking forward to interacting with everyone on here at some point. Thanks for setting this up Andrew!

My name’s Hannah; based in the UK and have worked in software since leaving school. Love building businesses and products.

Biggest challenge at the moment is recruitment. Busy trying to scale our the sales team - so hard to find good people with experience in B2B SaaS. Do shout up if you think you can help at all!

Good luck to you all - excited to be involved in this community. DM me anytime.

(GrahamOG) #364

Hey everyone,

I am working on a Carpooling app and a personal development application. For both apps we have built out a mobile platform and built a community around them. The carpooling app has been growing very steadily, we are making carpooling more efficient and practical. It has been an exciting challenge, as carpooling requires a behaviour change for most people living in North America.

(Erik Andersen) #365

Hi… I Erik, one of two founders of evertouch, the revolutionary address book that updates itself (www.evertouchcontacts.com). Our mission is to remove the ongoing hassles of maintaining an up to date address book.

I’m a veteran of the IT and retail online payments world, stretching back to early ATM networks with banks like Bank of America and Bank of California in S.F. and ending up as CIO and leading IT teams for significant payments processors, First Data and BPay in Sydney Australia. Jumped out of the corporate world in late 2011 and concentrating now on my own thoughts and ideas. Looking to be innovative and make a positive difference for people somewhere, somehow… probably in tech.

evertouch has been in the making for nearly 2 years now. We’ve made some significant progress, having passed our MVP and released what one might refer to as evertouch 1.0. But, we still have huge plans for the future and are currently preparing for the next level of investment (private and/or angel), so we can move ahead with ‘evertouch for Business’ and the raft of other features, functions and improvements we have defined.

Our challenge is attracting and retaining tech talent who share our passion and want to invest their time and expertise - - got on the journey with us. And, since marketing is not our forté, we’d love to find a marketeer/growthhacker to show us the way in telling the world about evertouch.


(Michael ) #366

Hi there. Thanks for the invite.

I’ve been in Direct Marketing & Digital for 15 years. Glad to be here.

I’m working on a startup that will completely disrupt telemarketing as we know it, and in a way that consumers will embrace. Launching this week.
I’m looking for ‘Growth’ partners to support this new venture.

Connect with me - @adman227

Thanks.


(Josh Rodriguez) #367

Hello, my name is Josh Rodriguez. I’m a marketing specialist (first job out of college) at AdStage. I split my time between demand gen, CRO, and anything else that needs marketing/design attention since we are a lean team.

I studied marketing & stats in college and plan to continue down the stats/data analysis path, working within a marketing role on optimization and modeling problems.

I’m completely new to the tech industry and look forward to learning from everyone.


(Simon) #368

Hi I’m Simon,

The problem I’m solving is how to get news objective again and make all facts and opinions visible.
My approach to solve it is in combination of content aggregation and empowering users to interact with the content and change the content. Beta version of my product available here http://trendwave.com
Biggest challenge I’m facing right now is finding a partner(s) willing to work with me on that problem.


(bill) #369

Good evening - My name is Bill Nelson and my company is working on a fantasy football app geared toward the casual sports fan and existing fantasy football players. Our goal is to bring back the social and fun aspect of fantasy sports with a convenient and fun game play format. We are not hardcore daily fantasy sports. The app name will be 3pak; beta launch scheduled for early Dec. 2015.

Other than a successful beta, our challenge is establishing connections with potential corporate partners. Our format would fit great with a restaurant or food chain that would look to attract people who play fantasy sports into their place of business.

Thanks for the invite! All comments are welcome.


(Seif Fendukly) #370

Hey guys,

I’m Seif Fendukly from Stockholm, Sweden.

I’m working as a Conversion Specialist at Conversionista! We’re no. 1 on online conversion in Sweden and in the nordic region.

I also run a side project www.maxadinforbranning.se where me and my team (licensed dietitian since many years, personal trainer and nutrition coach) help people live healthier lives without constant stress and anxiety about their health and what they’re eating. This is a big issue these days leading to mental and physical problems.

The biggest challenge in my side project is to build a great team and inspire others about our mission, to help people live healthier and happier lives without stress and anxiety about something as simple as food.

Good talking to you guys!

See you around,
Seif

Hi Andrew!

I was reading your post titled “New data shows losing 80% of mobile users is normal, and why the best apps do better,” and I have a few questions on the table data. How can apps - especially Top Tier Apps - have attrition rates that drive their active number of users to zero? At some point, wouldn’t the data show a plateau - or in the case of Top Tier apps, shouldn’t there be an increase? When does that occur?

Thanks

Arnel
