How to get your first 1,000 users 🤝 (Startup Watching #244)
By Andrew Askins • Issue #244 • View online
Happy Thursday Watchers!
I had a wacky idea while writing this issue. Everyone has been talking about Cameo lately, the app that lets you hire minor celebrities to record short videos for you.
This would be a great way to grab someone’s attention in a cold email (although you’d have to be careful not to imply that they’re endorsing you) or delight a customer.
From reading their terms it looks like this may even be an option you can pay more for, or maybe is a feature they’re planning on promoting in the future.
If I give it a try, I’ll be sure to report back.
On a similar note one of our clients has a very minimalist brand. The home screen of their website is just their logo on a black field.
So… naturally… I ordered a custom 1,000 piece puzzle made from a screenshot of their website as a Thank You gift for them. It should get there on Friday. 😂
Cheers from Charleston ✌️
