New build, first website, press plans

Yesterday I released a new build. In this version, you can also change the date of events (which means you can add past events) and add new contacts from within the app.

Today I set up a first webpage for Met. I really like the design of With, and I let myself be inspired. Admittedly, the website is quite minimal, but I think it should be enough (for now). I also found a good domain name, which I’m in the process of registering now.

I want to do multivariate testing on the website background, slogan and text, but can of course only do this once I’ve got some traffic going. Which raises another question: how are people going to find me?

In the past, I’ve had good experiences with sending press releases to Dutch weblogs such as iPhoneClub and OneMoreThing. In addition to this, I also would like to get featured on English-language iPhone sites, and sites such as LifeHacker. First I need to compile a list of sites that could potentially feature me, then I need to write a press release and send it to all of them.

As always, if you have tips or suggestions let me know.
