Updated marketing website

Corinn Pope
I took the designacademy email course and redesigned the roadvote homepage as I went along. I took a bunch of inspiration from multiple sites(avocode homepage and the todoist boards landing page). 

The illustrations were modified based on some stock images from adobe by yours truly. I think they turned out semi-decent. 

Now I feel more comfortable showing the site off. It looks a lot less amateur but still kinda indie and fun. The next question though is...how to promote it?!?

Product to an acceptable state. Time to start getting ready to promote it to the public.

Corinn Pope
Roadvote is at a good place product-wise. I feel like users can get value out of it in it's current state, so it's time to start promoting it. 

I was researching a few marketing courses to sharpen my skills. I was thinking about joining DemandCurve but it was expensive and relied mostly on paid ads. Instead I've started the conversionXL trial and am taking a course on product analytics. Branding is up next so I have something that is more appealing than a generic black, white, and blue tailwind site.

I'll still be spending some time on the product and updating it, but a majority will now be spent on marketing & promotion. Bleh!

Latest updates:
  • Added ability to send email notifications
