I will explain how I built CTA Examples and how much money I earned from it after 30 days.
I am a non-technical indie hacker who likes to build digital products. It’s been almost 5 months since I shipped my last product. Speaking of products I have built 3 products during the last year.
Here is a quick brief of them so you’ll have a better understanding that what kind of products I am building:
So, It’s time to build another product. Since I don’t have a technical background (still is ) I wanted to build a product that I can build on my own; without any help! Here are the 4 questions that I ask myself in the beginning:
I am a big fan of digital products! You start to respect more the creators of these products when started to build one.
People need a call-to-action library where they will be able to copy “Call to Action text” to the clipboard with just one click.
People didn’t fit well. When I said people I meant growth hackers, indie hackers, website builders, designers, and copywriters. Momentarily my target audience is people who are looking for new ways to write a creative call-to-action text.
I will show you the steps that I followed from idea to launch.
I created a super simple coming soon page on TallyForms It’s super easy to connect the Tally form with the domain 😉 I would try other tools to build a coming soon page if I hadn’t had a Tally Pro account but it is more effortless to manage all of the submission-related forms in the same place.
here is how I wireframed it in the beginning: first wireframe → second draft → wireframe to HTML→ the final version→
Now it’s time to build the landing page: I’ve decided not to build a familiar landing page. It’s going to be a dashboard-like page like @harrydry did on Marketing Examples
I am still learning Tailwind CSS and it is my #1 choice when building new landing pages and products.
I love using Shuffle Editor to generate static Tailwind CSS pages. It makes my job super easy as a non-technical maker.Tailwind CSS is easy for starters, and **Shuffle** makes it much easier for people like me. So I started playing on Shuffle's Artemis UI library.
You can drag & drop the pre-build components easily. It’s worth trying if you haven’t yet!
It might look like an effortless task for most of you developers, but it is “something” for a non-technical maker 😅 It took me a week to fix a bug; unfortunately, I gave up after that. I asked for help from a developer friend, and she set the code in 20min. Big thanks :)
I compiled and curated 300+ call-to-action examples on Airtable with 8+ data points. My original goal for the library to included 800+ items but I decided to stop after 250. This project started to take a lot of time.
I added a sales page and, some inner pages after before the launch.I recommend you to add these pages if you are building a website for your info-product or selling anyting on Gumroad:
As I said before, I consider ctaexamples.com as a case study and I wanted to share all the tools that I used to build CTA Examples
I made my analytic data publicly available, thanks to @PoeticMetricHQ, so everyone can see how a website like this performs: Live Analytics 📈
I had big hopes on the organic side, but the Googlebot pretended to be dead for the first weeks after launching it :) It took more time for my website to be indexed on Google than I imagined. I checked my sitemap and robots.txt all appear to be okay.
According to Ahref’s Site Audit tool, my site is doing okay, but I think I need to wait another week to see the effects.
Tip: You get free access to Ahrefs essential tools if you connect your Google Search Console with it.
It’s a win-win deal.
CTA Examples di not perform as good as Startup Recipes and Landing Page Checklist but it managed to made the became #5 Product of the Day on Product Hunt.
It’s time to share the results 30days after the launch.
I have to mention here: I did nothing about TikTok. I believe TikTok influencers are good Product Hunt followers and they post the products they found useful for their audiences.
Domain Rating 30! in two months. What do you think?
Let’s go back to my goals to decide whether it’s a successful product or not.
The funny thing is that TikTok helped me to rank higher on this keyword more than any other effort 🧐🤔🤓
