The more I think about it the more sense this makes. I feel like I need to grow in features that help website owner with whatever problems they encounter. So why limit it to analytics?

Yeah nobody wants analytics. People want actionable insights. Analytics are just a way to get there.

These are great questions. I can definitely do something to help answer those.

Great feedback!

Homepage

The feedback on the homepage is clear, will fix that.

Pricing

  • Why do you think to have data export for all plans? I want to target businesses, and need more differentiating features between starter and business.
  • I will get more features every day, so that price is maybe too high now, but will be good later.
  • Haven't properly tried without cc, but I do have emails from people that fill in the demo input field. So will make something for them where they can try out without cc and bug them in the platform so they need to upgrade.

Product

  • Thanks πŸ™
  • Radically different, hm, if you know something, let me know. For me it's hard to think of more business features, makers features are easy. But I think that keeps me small.
  • You know this Pieter Levels guy? He suggested to get a list of companies that I should contact for offering my products for free, so they can be on my homepage. Companies like Ghost (looks like they use GA). But selling myself to those companies is as easy as writing my PR message ;-)

Re: data exports

It feels wrong to me when I pay for a service and they take my data hostage. I understand it's a common business practice to create a vendor lock-in, but feels hostile to me.

Re: radically different

I'm not sure what exactly it should be. This isn't it, but just to give you an idea of thinking out of the box: everyone's stats are open to each other. So by joining Simple Analytics you're able to benchmark your stats compared to other websites. (e.g. to determine if your 62% bounce rate is good or bad, etc.)

To find such an idea (but an actual good one) you need to talk extensively to your customers and understand their deeper business needs. For example for me with regards to Startup Jobs I have these questions:

  • Is there more SEO work that I can do? (analytics tool build around SEO with practical tips on which pages to improve and what to add/change/etc)
  • How well is my paid advertising work? (
  • Would increasing the number of job posts increase my revenue?
  • Where are my customers coming from? (Google Analytics often says "direct" but I can't imagine so many people typing in the URL)

These are great questions. I can definitely do something to help answer those.

Context: I'm on a n iPhone SE, no reason to learn Chinese, just roasting here! I didn't read the other roasts to be unique, so there could be double things here.

There we go:

  1. Font is super big. On my screen there is not so much space.
  2. On the main screen (practice, subscribe now, progress..) you communicate a lot. I'm not sure what is the most important thing I should do next.
  3. When clicking on practice i get a list of buttons. This list is scrollable, and while having that is does not feel native (not sure if you care or should care)
  4. If you click subscribe now the content again is scrollable on the screen. This seems not needed and cuts of the tiny text on the bottom. Seems like a design bug.
  5. It still says well don't after i clicked everything wrong and the last one is right.
  6. I would remove the red color a 1 second after you clicked it. I would also remove the try again text after 1 sec.
  7. The result screen is quite overwhelming (maybe because everything i did was incorrect. Also not sure where my attentions should go to.
  8. I don't like the fat black borders around the buttons and in the layout.

That's it!

Thanks!

On the main screen (practice, subscribe now, progress..) you communicate a lot. I'm not sure what is the most important thing I should do next - you're not the first one to mention it, I'll be working on making it cleaner in the next release

When clicking on practice i get a list of buttons. This list is scrollable, and while having that is does not feel native (not sure if you care or should care) - it has to do with your screen size, while I'll be working on adapting on making it look nice on all screen sizes eventually, at the moment I'm focusing on making everything look nice on more standard iphones

I would remove the red color a 1 second after you clicked it. I would also remove the try again text after 1 sec. - I like the idea, added to my to-do list

The result screen is quite overwhelming (maybe because everything i did was incorrect. Also not sure where my attentions should go to. - thanks for highlighting this, I might make it simpler, only highlighting the words you got wrong instead of a log of all your answers

You can give a trial for 2 weeks without asking a cc. Make sure they know this upfront. Converting people that don't fill in a cc to a paid user seems difficult and I'm very happy I asked for cc for Simple Analytics.

I don't want to give that data to CloudFlare indeed. I will not record the IP's but I can't prove that to my customers. But yeah, I don't know how (if indeed possible).
