The other goal is to encourage them to come out to the public and start to get feedback from the user community. We are rooting for you, so launch that leaky boat or take your first steps on the water.
We think Reid Hoffman (founder of LinkedIn) was giving good advice when he said this.
‘If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.’
First let’s recap the list from last quarter to see what progress has been made.
http://www.fashionstake.com/ Still private beta.
http://localot.com/ Still splash page.
http://www.universalmetaphor.com Still splash page that says “Stop by again later this year.”
http://www.jumpseewow.com/ currently under construction
http://www.blogcastr.com/ looked like it was live, but when we tried to sign up, it says “oops, requires an invite token”
http://tutorialtab.com/ not public yet. Says “apply for Alpha”
http://mogoterra.com/ has launched and recently transitioned to a paid service. If you are building a web app you need to know how well it supports cross browser functionality. Give Mogotest a try.
https://alpha.wattzy.com/ has launched and is free to sign up. Give Wattzy a try if you want to save on energy bills.
http://www.waysavvy.com/ Looked like it was live, but clicking on Sign Me Up, asks you a few anonymous questions and then gives you this message. “Enter your email to get notified when we launch”
http://www.fanzanimal.com/ not launched. We set up a mailing list for people who want to be a “Friend of FanZanimal, Inc.”
Score: Only two out of the ten have launched. Wattzy and Mogotest. Congratulations to both and go visit and spend some time or money with both.
When Will These Web Sites Launch Q3 2010
Now let’s take a look at the list for next quarter. Pay them a visit and sign up for their beta tests if you’re interested. These new creations need your support and input to find their way and make something you want to use.
