@neildwainwright I've been using my CRM as long as I can remember. I'm off the belief everyone should have a CRM. Good to see the approach from Personal instead of Company Neil. Unfortunately, I am too much invested with current CRM provider. But wish you all the best

Interesting to see pricing starting with $2/yr - are you sure this should not be $2/month? I think you are underselling. But hey, no issue in trialling.

All the best

@SkilledUpLife Hey! If you pay for whole year, the price is $2/m. So you will pay 2*12=24$
If you want to pay monthly, the price is $3/m.

Don't forget to use the coupon code :)
Unfortunately your email field settings refuse to accept my email address.
@SkilledUpLife I managed to trial with a different email. As we don't yet have Google Business listing, tried https://techcelerate.ventures. Unfortunately, it shows our old office. So the output is not relevant.

@jrleonr is there a free version for those who have small number of emails?

Worth checking out https://underline.email/ as well. Got fed up with them as they take a long time to add subscribers - almost one per day.

I'm a MailChimp free customer and just started with Sendgrid for transactional emails.
@SkilledUpLife Hello! Thanks a lot for your question!

I completely understand what you mean, To me it is a bit hard to offer a free version as a solo maker, because I couldn't keep up with the cost of offering it to everyone.

If you want to try nomadmail, please, do it for the 14-days trial, and if you like it, and depending how many subscribers you have, we can work something out.

I am here as a 1-1 person to talk with. All the customers that use nomadmail are in direct contact with me, nomadmail won't be a big corp and I want to keep a close relationship with people.

So what do you think? you can try it for a couple of days and we can do a skype/zoom and work something out!

Thanks very very much!
@jrleonr I'm a one-man-band as well. I'm going to give a miss as I already have MailChimp and SendGrid. But like to wish you all the best. And thanks for the prompt response.
@SkilledUpLife Oh! Ok! I am sorry to hear that! Anyway, here I am if you change your mind! Thanks a lot for taking time of your day to check it out!
Interesting idea with accountability. Bit messy formatting of the commenting system.

@SkilledUpLife thanks for your feedback.

@DothSquare not it was just the formatting on Chrome on Mac. I didn't create an account.
@SkilledUpLife By the way, I am looking for a tool where we could run weekly sales sprint for https://techcelerate.ventures/members. Ideally looking for something free for the time being. Tried using Trello. Like the way how Pioneer.app does this. Also the YC Startup School. That reminds me, I should get in touch with nReduce boys. They ran an online accelerator and opened source the software.
Trialled. Came back with big zero. Not sure whether I should be happy or sad. I wanted to add more email addresses but it wasn't too obvious.

All the best

@SkilledUpLife Being hard to find is a good thing, as it makes it harder for a hacker to find ways into your business.

Several of our private preview customers added more email addresses to get better coverage. For example - Clifton High School add more when they had to switch to remote teaching in March. (https://freshsec.com/blog/customer-story-visibility-of-data-breaches-is-clearer-and-responding-is/)

Thanks for the feedback - we'll make it clearer. In the meantime, I've sent you an email on how to add more accounts. Thanks for taking a look.

Better than Loom? Just signed up to try out.

Love the simplicity, but I received three email confirmation messages. Will play with it

Trying to understand the usage. Would this be applicable to https://skilledup.life, which is built on Wordpress?

Best regards
Manoj
@SkilledUpLife logre.io can help you monitoring errors in your site. We don't have a PHP SDK or integration for Wordpress yet but you could use the REST API for now.

Cheers,
Hi Akash

Would be interesting to trial. Signed. I do everything manually, but keen to see whether some of my tasks can be automated.

All the best
Manoj
https://skilledup.life
Not even bothered signing up for a trial after I say "Slack". Sorry but good luck.

Best regards

@SkilledUpLife Hi Manoj, what went wrong? The only way to sign up for the trial is to drop your email in the sign up field on https://launch.ariv.ai, once you do that you will be in line to get invited to try Ariv in Slack.
@iEngage_AI What I meant was, I would have trialled if it was a stand alone product. As it's used within Slack and I'm suffering from Slack fatigue, I decided not to try.
@SkilledUpLife HI, I'm the founder at Aikon Labs and we made Ariv for folks just like you. Avoid the fatigue, let Ariv know what you like to know and how often-she never gets fatigued. And in case you need to know something just ask Ariv. Would love to know what you think-just take her for a spin in our Slack (oops) community channel
Hi Andy

Few years ago, email was the king. People got tired of emails and then there are others who religiously manage zero inbox, like me!

GDPR finally killed cold emailing. What's working for me well is connecting with folks on Linkedin, instead of sending out cold emails. All manually as well.

But tools like yours still has a place. So good luck.

By the way, you should consider showing some test results before installed the browser plugin. This might leads to more sign ups. Worth A/B testing.

Best regards

@SkilledUpLife I wonder if it would be a GDPR breach if the email address is publicly listed and any email to that address is one-to-one, not a mass mailing to a list.

Hi Jared

Created an account. Few issues. Dealing with Susan. If this works out, I'll tell all our tech companies about this

@SkilledUpLife Hi Manoj,

I was informed about the issue you were facing. It should be working just fine now. Please check :)

PS: Play around the Customize section of your widget to make it bend in with your website design.

Regards,
Jared.
Hi Daniel and Dario

Awesome idea. So many gig market places these days. I'm building https://skilledup.life. Let me know if you see any synergies. I soft-launched on 1st Aug 2020, so early days for us.

All the best
Manoj
Hi Anton

Is there any chance of getting a free account without going through a demo? If so, please let me know.

Thanks

Hi Brandon and Bethany

Website looks lovely. I use Loom. Help me here - why should I ditch Loom and start using your product?

Best regards
Manoj
https://skilledup.life
@SkilledUpLife great question! Sendspark is made specifically for sales & marketing teams doing customer outreach, so while a lot of the functionality is similar, we have advanced features to personalize videos and convert viewers after watching.

Loom will help you create videos; Sendspark will help you create customers.
@BethStachenfeld that's a great answer Bethany. A clear differentiator. Thank you.
Hi Michael

Wonder whether this is like Uservoice in the very early days. I still have a free account. Happy to see whether yours is something we could use. I am not looking for a solution by the way, but like trying out new products

Hi Pipeabello

The market is developing in a such a manner where now No Code Developers are coming on-board to build using these tools. I even spoke to a fund today, which invest only in no code app companies.

Just thought I'll share above. It's not a criticism.

All the best

How is this priced?

Hi Sagun

I didn't know such a term existed. I am happy to share ours, but we are more of a product than a tech startup.

Hi Harris

Can't find pricing information.

@SkilledUpLife our customers are SMEs so we provide custom pricing according to their requirements.
@fahmibinbacker ah too many barriers to trial yours. All the best.

Nice to see you here. Will check it out.

Great illustrations. Thanks. Downloaded the freebie.

@msh_nyc do you actually share email addresses? If so, are you not gonna face issues with GDPR? Or are you just selling in the USA and not UK?
@SkilledUpLife We're fine with GDPR––investors can opt out at any time, and data has already been made publicly available (on their website etc)
Hey Jef and Lauren

Looks like an awesome product. I built https://unified.vu but had to mothballed due to not hitting product/market fit.

All the best

@SkilledUpLife Hi Manoj! Thanks for your note and kind words, we're really excited to be launching our Chrome Extension in the next few weeks so keep an eye out! We'd love to hear your feedback :)
Wow Alex. This is amazing. Going to use the free version as we already use Asana and Trello. But the simplicity amazes me. This also proves that nothing is safe from disruption. Well done.

Hi Vladyslav

You might be interested in https://uktechnews.info. It's one of my assets. How would it work from the site owner's perspective? Would you be up for sharing some revenues? In this way, you can legitimately distribute the full content.

Hi there

Pricing is quite high. Assume you are not targeting micro businesses.
