Hi there! πŸ‘‹

Designer at Kiroku and we've just pushed out a beta of our platform for automating clinical notes.

Clinical note taking can take up to 25% of a dentists time. Automating this process can help dentists see up to 1,000 more patients a year, spend longer with their current patients, or just get home earlier.

Later we'll be rolling out a version completely powered by voice so the process is completely automated (currently in closed-beta).

Dentistry is just the start, we're looking to expand to all other industries in 2019.\

Happy to be featured and answer any questions you may have!

@marckohlbrugge Hi Marc sorry for such a late response. This is great advice - I'm going to look into partnerships and this is something I was totally unaware of - it's awesome! Major πŸ”‘
@marckohlbrugge Hi Marc! Yes, anyone can submit art. We don't want to limit posting rights to artists initially, although posting will be regulated quite strictly to ensure we maintain great content!

Having a platform for artists and art-lovers to answer questions and discuss pieces of work is a core feature of what we've built.

You're absolutely correct in the assumption that on-boarding both sides of this coin from the get-go is quite a challenge.

Thankfully we've been working super hard offline to connect with artists who'll be ready to discuss their work with our small community on launch!

Merry Christmas and thanks for having us here πŸŽ…
@SupArchie Cool. Do you know www.wetransfer.com by any chance? They are a file sharing site with 'wallpaper-advertising'. I believe for about 50% of their pageviews they swap out the ads for art to promote up-and-coming artists. Might be worth exploring a partnership down the road or see if you can draw some inspiration from them. (Once you've built an audience I can see awesome-looking display ads / commissioned art working well for you.)

Hi! We've built Artcreep as a place for artists and art lovers to bond over pieces they like.

If you're familiar with sites like Reddit or Product Hunt you'll perhaps draw big similarities with what we're trying to do with Artcreep - to create an amazing place to discover great art everyday.

We also have a voting algorithm, entailing only the best content gets pushed to the top! So it's also a great way for artists to launch their work and gain exposure.

If you're a fan of art we think you'll love us! 😻

I'm flying from Hong Kong to London in a few hours but would love to answer any questions you may have.
@SupArchie Will anyone be able to submit art, or just the artists? Curious to hear your thought process behind this. As I'm sure you're aware of on BetaList all the startups are submitted by the founders enabling us to do some interesting links like having this Community Feedback section where as a user you're sure your feedback will be heard.

On the other hand, it's hard to start a community like this, because you'll require both artists and art lovers to be on the site from day one.

Sure! And thank you so much for the feature πŸŽ‰

The tagline is indeed sensationalist - however, we aim to change it to 17,800 rather than 3,800 (it's currently 13,800) as we are adding more and more reporters every day.

The concern on Twitter at the moment from journalists' perspective is effectively "how will this operate for us?"

The answer is very simple - the database acts as an offline repository for startups to search public information on journalists such as their names, email addresses, positions and the publications they work for.

This information can then be used to send pitches in bulk that use this information as merge fields directly from the users desktop.

The best thing about this outreach is that unlike Mailchimp or list services - the emails come directly from your personal email address.

We also want to introduce far more information on the reporters in our database in the near future such as Twitter handles, interests, fields and location.

The sheer amount of updates we'd like to bring in was the reasoning behind the lifetime payment model rather than any kind of subscription system.

Sending thousands of journalists the same email will at best get your product blacklisted and at worst get your domain shut down for spam.

This is why we are running Mailroom Month right now https://www.mailroom.press/month/ a programme of which 15k+ people are already subscribed, that details how to reach out to journalists, how to write a release and how to pitch a story - to advise people on how best to use the tool.

The emails so far are public and available here: http://us14.campaign-archive1.com/home/?u=5fc314faba3f423b41b009ff4&id=481a715c01

Mailroom has, in the last month, already helped raise $1M in backing for a Kickstarter campaign and been used by over 40 beta testers to a large degree of success in getting their projects featured in the press.

The bottom line is, Mailroom will be a tool you could potentially use aggressively and render your payment for the app worthless. Or, it can be used efficiently as an alternative to a PR agency to reach out to journalists in your niche, without the huge time suck that manual outreach involves.

If anyone is interested - I wrote a post about the origins of the app here: https://medium.com/@SupArchie/being-top-three-on-product-hunt-and-getting-over-11-000-sign-ups-in-eight-days-made-me-realise-c928a2f31118

Looking forward to any questions! πŸ“¬
