Embedded Links

John Chambers
Big thanks to the GoRails Slack group for giving me feedback. It's been really helpful 🙏🏼

Over the last  day or 2 I've added some meaty features:

  • Embed Links for Soundcloud, Twitter, YouTube etc
  • Added all Social Media Icons
  • Improved background settings for flat colours, gradients and image backgrounds
  • Added the ability for athletes to list products
  • Stripe connect accounts are nearly ready for Athletes to start using
  • Added some analytics tracking for Athletes too

Next steps:
  • Complete Stripe Connect Payments
  • Add Paywall for PRO Features
  • Add Mailers
  • Contact some more real life athletes
  • Twitter and Instagram oAuth login

I got the basic profile builder completed over the weekend with some styling options and an iPhone live preview.

Even though I'm not an athlete here's my profile:

Next up I'm adding ways for athletes to make money through their social media profiles.

I'll build MVP based on feedback comments here

John Chambers
I've had the domain athletes.io for a few years and I think it's time to use it.

Inspired by Brian Casel product Threadly in Remote Ruby I just want to build something quick and simple.

I want to build a simple MVP for athletes over the next week where they can create a custom 1 page profile with links, images or content associated with their needs.

So basically linktr.ee for athletes.

Some questions I'm thinking about:

  • What content should athletes be able to place on their Athletes.io/profile ?
  • How do I verify they are athletes?
  • What features could I add that would help athletes?
  • How should it be priced? Free, Monthly Billing, Both?
  • What else should I think about?

I'll build it straight away if I like the idea! 

Answers in the comments......

Just throw any thoughts at me please 🤩 🙏🏼 😁
