After thinking about it for over a month, I decided to launch the Validated Ideas newsletter on Product Hunt in November.
It will launch today at 12:30 AM on Product Hunt.
I plan on monetising this newsletter by selling other research packages with it. I'm doing this for 3 reasons:
Research comes fairly easy to me and I can automate a lot of this process.
I'll gain insight into different products and their marketing.
I get to meet entrepreneurs working on interesting problems.
I'll eventually sell memberships to this site. But for now, I think selling a service is the way to go. Also, to charge membership I need to get the bank account and other things ready for my newly formed LLP. So, that will come soon.
The product is being launched by a famous hunter on PH. So I think that will give a decent push because this hunter has quite a few followers.
Beyond that, I'll also be sharing it with my Mental Models community. Hopefully, this puts the product in the first 5 results for today's products.
I'll eventually start doing interviews here and get some real good SEO flowing. I want to keep this as simple as possible and do not want to get into complex offerings till paid membership numbers start looking decent.
So that's it. Let's see how this goes.
