StartupResources.io — Issue #76

Hi folks, it’s Jói again!

My company just moved into its new office space today. It’s actually a cluster of SaaS startups called called Quarter. I’ll post about it again once it’s got a website, but it’s pretty exciting, 9 different SaaS startups sharing one office floor, learning from each other and drinking a lot of coffee.

I told you a few weeks ago that I’d lay off the one-click surveys for a while until I had a question so compelling that you wouldn’t be able to control your urge to answer. Well, here it is:

Are you a Mac or a PC? (just click your answer to respond)

I told you you wouldn’t be able to resist 😉

Designrr — Create beautiful lead magnets without writing a single wordgo.designrr.io

This is a tool for creating an ebook (semi) automatically from your existing blog content (or other content you have). I purchased it at $27 per year using the link above, normally the same plan is $27 per month. There’s a funnel after the purchase to try to get you to upgrade, don’t fall for it

I’m ambivalent about posting this one. On the one hand it’s an interesting idea to use scratch games to keep folks coming back to your giveaway campaign and referring more folks, and if the results are what they claim then that’s kind of amazing. On the other, their plans are very expensive — but perhaps they are negotiable.

I hope you’ve had a great week and will have an even greater weekend. For me, it’s back to screwing together IKEA furniture and hanging whiteboards for the new office.
