Email #10

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

This is the 10th email like this, that I wrote πŸ‘€ πŸŽ‰

If you've read all of them, thank you so much for sticking around πŸ™ and if you've just joined in, I am super happy to have you here & share these things with you 😊

Product of the week #10

Contrary to what you might think bc of the little celebration above, I'm usually not a fan of vanity metrics and chasing them.

Twitter wise you could say that's also because I don't have that many of these metrics skyrocketing (like shares / likes / followers / etc) πŸ˜… and that's probably partly true! 

But lately CtrlAltCC got quite a few new daily visitors, newsletter signups & the first few paid directory features πŸ’œ from twitter, so I thought this was a good time to get on the vanity metrics train for a while and see if I can make twitter work as part of CtrlAltCC's marketing πŸ€” (updates on this to follow as I go!)

Around the same time I've also connected with Luca @ikoichi on twitter, who talked to me about a super useful twitter tool that he's built.

That tool is Hivoe! πŸ¦

Website link: hivoe.com


Hivoe helps you easily set up twitter DM automations for welcome messages, when someone follows you; schedule DMs; send group DMs and even create giveaway flows!

Hivoe was already featured on CtrlAltCC at the time, as it looked like a really useful tool since the first time I came across it. But in all honesty, I never thought it would be a tool for me.

Apparently I was very wrong πŸ˜…

Though I believe in automating as much as possible, when it comes to human interactions, I always thought automating them felt a bit lazy! Especially when they are made to look like they are not in fact automated (not a fan)

Luca @ikoichi was super creative on this front though! In the auto-DM that I got from him when I clicked follow, he acknowledged that this was just an auto-DM meant as an icebreaker and mentioned that he is super happy to chat if I wanted to, but also cool if I didn't want to chat.

🀯 this was a game changer.

It's so honest & upfront that you cannot not like it! So I set up my own (heavily inspired by his) in about 2 minutes through Hivoe, of course. Super straightforward setup! And this is how mine looks ⬇️

Hivoe screenshot
And guess what. People are actually loving it!! Out of the 28 auto-DMs sent so far, 10 of them resulted in a conversation. Insane ratio  imo!

People feel like they don't have to engage if they don't want to, but it always opens a door in case they do. So clever!

My stance on this did a full 360, from "I could never use this" to "where has this product been all along!" πŸ˜… and I am really glad it did!

You can test it out for free and then upgrade to a paid plan afterwards that gives you unlimited amounts of automated messages to use and you also get to support Luca @ikoichi whilst at it 😊

On a productivity note, this week's maker story comes form Marie & is about building Llama Life! (featured previously as product of the week #6)


"To say I love productivity tools is an understatement! I love understanding the systems behind tools, and the habits and psychology people use to get things done.

I built Llama Life because I was diagnosed with ADHD about 10 years ago and ever since then have been trying to find solutions to help increase my focus and get work done.

But I just couldn't find a tool that worked the way I wanted it to. I found plenty of tools that helped me MAKE lists, but I wanted something that would actually help me work THROUGH my list.

I discovered that setting a fixed amount of time for each task gave me a strange sense of calm. It also gave me the mental space to focus on ONE thing at a time. And this is what Llama Life is designed to do!

With Llama Life, my end goal was to create something that would provide you with a feeling of calmness and control (and also fun!). I hope I’ve achieved this. Thanks for checking it out, and if you have any feedback or feature requests you can find me on Twitter @threehourcoffee or drop me an email at hello@llamalife.co.

PS - As for why it’s called Llama Life...well, that comes from a trip I did to Peru in 2018. I was lucky enough to visit a small village, and chat with some of the locals there. They had no electricity or running water, but damn they had a lot of llamas! At the time, one thing that stuck me was how peaceful, calm and content they all were, and when it came to naming this app, I wanted to replicate that feeling. And so...β€œLlama Life” was born."

Email #9

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Besides the usual, this email will also contain the 1st featured maker story πŸ€© - but let's have a look at this week's product first!

Product of the week #9

I'll start by saying that this is not the way I usually come across products for the directory 😁

This time a fellow maker found ctrlalt.cc on twitter, where one of his friends mentioned it (how amazing is that πŸ’œ) . He then crafted this super smart email where he introduced himself and quickly showed me how the product he's made would work on ctrlalt.cc

Wow! I mean if all cold emails would put in even half the thought Goutham @gouthamjay8 put into his, I bet their conversion rates would be much higher!

Anyway, considering I had this one task on my to-do list for quite a while now, I decided to give this product a go & see if I can finally tick this task off.

Meet Famewall πŸ’¬

Website link: famewall.io


Famewall makes it super easy to embed testimonials into your site with only one script. That's it - no other coding needed!

It has quite a few options that you can use such as written or video testimonials, reddit, twitter, app stores ones and it also allows you to collect new testimonials super easy. 

It looked perfect for my task. I already had a few tweets where people mentioned ctrlalt.cc that I wanted to include, so I signed up, added the tweets URL's to my wall, dragged the cards around until I got a nice masonry layout and that was that. I dropped the generated script into my landing page and here you have it β†“ 

Famewall on CC screenshot
Pretty, quick and more straightforward than any other way of doing this manually I was considering!

It has a free plan to get you started and 3 pricing tiers to help you find one that suits you best .. and let's be honest, it's always nice to use a tool built by someone who looks after their users!

On that note - Goutham is actually the 1st featured maker story 🎊, so have a look below at his story behind building Famewall ↓

Goutham's story about building Famewall

"I began building a lot of businesses 1.5 years ago but ended up facing failures in a lot of them (Full story described here) At that time I had a cofounder, hence I thought we could focus on building distribution first before monetizing users, but the experiment ultimately failed as it was hard to build a community based business while fully bootstrapped.


After all these ventures, I knew I wanted to build my own business as I loved interacting with customers & seeing them use something which I made of nothing. The only missing piece was to find the intersection of, what would people pay for & what I was good at. SaaS products were extremely welcoming on that front since I could create value for customers while also building a living out of it.


So I went into brainstorming sessions finding what be an aspect in business which would remain the same for 10 years. The activities involved in user onboarding came into my radar. A business will have to onboard customers delightfully to let them have a pleasant experience & create a good impression, no matter how many years pass by.


And there’s no better way to delight customers than by showing social proof of experiences shared by other customers. Enter Famewall β€“ A tool to collect & embed social media, video testimonials on customizable walls which can be embedded on landing pages in under 1 minute with no-code!


I did try out a lot of testimonial tools but found that they were quite slow & had limited customization options, brand appeal. I wanted to innovate entirely on that front & have been actively working on it, ever since πŸ™‚


The ultimate vision for Famewall is to make user onboarding seamless with testimonials while also removing the friction for businesses in having to collect & manage testimonials."

Email #8

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Before we dive in and look at this week's product, I've got an exciting new thing to mention: makers stories πŸ‘€ (I'll come back to this in a bit, lower down the page, but wanted to drop it here in case of tl;dr)

Product of the week #8

Building a startup can get pretty intense. And a big part of being as productive & creative as possible is looking after your health & wellbeing.

Easier said than done? Completely hear you! Things can easily get so busy that the first things getting sliced are the "looking after yourself" ones. I've been there and still am sometimes, just trying to get a bit better at it every time, and this app should make it a bit easier for you too:

Meet Medito πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ

Medito screenshot


Website link: meditofoundation.org


Medito is a free meditation app that contains packages tailored to making you feel better within a few minutes. No excuses to skip it when a session only takes as long as eating a sandwich, especially when it will impact how you will feel for the rest of the day (or night).

If you are a newbie to this (like me) Medito has a 30 days challenge to get you started & help you create a habit. If you are feeling stressed you can try their breathing exercises for super quick results and if you are struggling with low mood or sleep, there is a whole pack dedicated to each one of these too.

Even if you only want some relaxing background sounds to help you relax whilst you work, they've got this covered as well. They've pretty much thought of everything!

It also has a lovely minimalistic design and is built & run entirely by volunteers such as: @scouech , @billynomates, @GarethYorke, @StevenYorke and many more (you can find the full list here). 

Medito screenshot
Such a great resource & mission! If you have any spare time & want to contribute, you can volunteer to help them here!

Now whilst we are talking about product missions, more on the news mentioned at the top 🦩

Not coming even close to the Medito one, but CtrlAlt.CC's goal has always been to help people find lesser know tools, developed with a lot of heart. And in the process support the makers of these tools too.

Introducing the "built with heart" badge

CC bwh screenshot
In trying to make it easier for anybody browsing the CC directory to find the product that suits them best from "solving a problem" pov as well as aligning with the product's mission (when this becomes of importance), CC will now be featuring stories from the makers behind the products in the directory πŸŽ‰

This will give the makers a way to connect with people and the visitors a way to understand more about a product's story.

I will be featuring one of these stories each week in this newsletter, alongside my product of the week (of course). And on the website, the story will be displayed in the product pop-over as well as on the maker's profile.

There is also an option for these makers to add the "built with heart" badge to their site & link to their story on CC, so that anybody interested in learning more can come and do so πŸ™‚

An early mockup of how "the story behind the product" will look in the pop-over

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

✨

Product of the week #7

Almost certain someone, somewhere once said "doing one thing well > doing a lot of things poorly".

This product is the definition of this. I've been using it for a few years now & just re-discovered it does a few more things than I'm using it for. The reason I keep going back to it time & time again is one single feature that gives me back a LOT of my time.

It's maker is called Rikku & this is the project's twitter @MyColorSpaces  - it doesn't look too active but the project seems super loved regardless.

Meet ColorSpace 🌈

ColorSpace screenshot


Website link: mycolor.space


ColorSpace is a design tool that generates colour palettes in one click, staring from one base colour (and as I've recently re-discovered it also generates CSS for 2 & 3 colours linear gradients)

When I first came across this project, I tried out all these features & they are all great. But considering almost every design project that I work on needs some colour input at one point or another, the ColorSpace palette generator became my go-to for this.

Here's how I use it

I select a base colour and add it to the generator. Scroll through the generated colours until I come across something I like. Then try these colours in my designs to see how they look in context.

If I feel like it's not quite there yet and I need more variety, I pick one of the colours the tool suggested & re-run the generator with this colour as a base. Repeat as many times as needed & voila! You get all the colours that you want and they all work together harmoniously πŸ€©

The process couldn't be more straightforward and it beats doing this manually by a mile.

A bit of a fun fact, all the colours on ctrlalt.cc (except for the initial flamingo pink) have been generated with ColorSpace πŸ’œ

Great reminder that an awesome product doens't have to contain a thousand features!

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Let's dive in πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ

Product of the week #6

I've been meaning to test this product for quite a while now, but with it being a productivity tool I kept postponing it. Counterintuitive? πŸ˜… Maybe! But I've tried out quite a few productivity tools before I got to a setup that works for me.

However, I've been dealing with a lot of burnout lately, so when I started chatting with @NhiHemingway I thought this was the perfect time to give this product a go.

Meet Llama Life πŸ¦™, a productivity tool that puts YOU before your work!

Llama Life screenshot


Website link: llamalife.co


It's been made by the ever inspiring @threehourcoffee and unlike other tools out there, it focuses on helping you get your work done effectively AND also makes sure that you have enough energy left afterwards, to do non-work stuff if you want to!

Sorcery I know πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ

Before building Llama Life, Marie taught herself how to code whilst building shhhnoise fidgetpage - super creative tools with nice little touches like this cool af llama giving you a nudge to check out Llama Life 😍 ⬇️


Fidget page screenshot


But going a bit off track here.

I have been using time boxing for quite a while now, in an attempt to be as productive as possible whilst juggling multiple projects. Or so I thought.

My boxes of time started containing more and more stuff in them and I started being more & more tired, all the time.

With Llama Life as a clean slate, keeping everything minimal was the key. So I made a "presets" list that basically contains a few 90 mins work blocks, a workout block & a couple breaks. Every day before I start, I am loading the presets list & adjusting the tasks based on what I am planning to get through that day. Then I am letting the timer tell me when to stop & switch to the next task (& it does so with lovely chimes sounds πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ)

Obviously it's hard to estimate exactly how long a task will take & sometimes I have so little left to do that I'd rather finish up before moving on to the next time block. But Marie of course thought about this! and made it super easy to adjust the timer as you go, complete the current task before the timer runs out, delete a task & rearrange the priority order as your day goes on.

All these tasks updates are reflected in the "end time" which will tell you, based on everything that you have in your list for today, what time you'll finish up. Super handy if you have plans afterwards, so you can remove low priority stuff & make sure you are done when you were planning to.

I think my favourite thing about Llama Life is coming across all these little features and see that someone thought about all these experiences through the product. Definitely one of the benefits of building in public & developing based on genuine user feedback, resulting in an app that's a joy to use!

It has a 7 day free trial to give you enough time to decide if it's for you or not (as you might've guessed, it 100% is a tool for me 😊)

More to come!

Marie bootstrapped Llama Life as a sole founder and recently brought Nhi on board to help her. Now they've just raised a pre-seed round so they can get more hands on deck and take it all even further (give them a shout if you want to help them)! Some of the words that I am hearing are multi player mode, streaming, audio, & even potentially video. Watch this space!

Until next time you can find me on twitter @nerddoingsocial πŸ¦

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Let's have a look at an indie tool that I liked trying out this week πŸ‘€

Product of the week #5

I found this product through twitter recently & added it to CC but haven't had a good chance to make an account & deep dive into it, until the maker @JustinQuda sent me a DM about some interesting guests that he's got this week on his platform.

Was super intrigued but before going into more details; having worked on a few marketplaces myself, I really appreciate the hustle they take to get moving (one side always seems to have more than the other) & so really appreciate the work Justin is doing here!

Now meet Quda, the audio Q&A app

Quda screenshot


Website link: askquda.com


In a world that loves podcasts, twitter spaces & clubhouse (a long, long time ago), audio seems like it's making its way back into our lives (or has it never left πŸ€”)

I personally find it hard to have podcasts on when working, but do like the occasional listen & made some time for a few episodes of @stephsmithio & @calvin_rosser's one. So you can imagine I was quite excited to hear that because of Justin's work I now have the chance to ask them a question directly through Quda!

I was also slightly nervous. I am one of those people that every time I hear my own voice on a recording I think it doesn't sound how I thought it sounded in my head - so the medium was for sure not my first choice. However I had no doubt Justin already thought about all these things & it turns out he definitely did!

The onboarding was super quick & smooth and the instructions made me feel at ease about the scary part of audio recording. You can basically re-record your question as many times as you want & you can even upload your own mp3 file if you prefer - which I did after recording myself about 5 times πŸ˜…


Super smooth experience all around - now just waiting, curiously for an answer from them whilst listening to other little nuggets from other great minds in this space! (P.S. In case you are dying to know, my question was around money as a goal vs a means to an end in the creator economy πŸ‘€)

Will definitely be following Justin's journey with Quda as it has a lot of potential!

Quda is now featured on CC under this shiny new tag ✨ β¬‡οΈ (more updates on the early adopters space to come πŸ‘€)

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Been a while (finally took some time off away from tech β˜€οΈ) but I am back now, fully recharged πŸ”‹ and ready to dive straight in!

Product of the week #4

This product is at the very beginning of its journey and looking super exciting!

As it happens with a lot of other tools that end up doing great, this started as a side project meant to help with another goal. In this case, my friend @panphora started it in a bid to get a job! I know. Not the most usual route (and not one that I would take myself), but there are endless ways to get where you wanna go & you just gotta find your own.

This is not David's first rodeo though - he's made quite a few products in the past & lately did 31 projects in 31 days, back in January.

Now let's meet his latest creation, Polite Pop!

Polite Pop screenshot


Demo link: cdn.politepop.com/demo

Early adopter signup: signup.politepop.com


As the name implies, Polite Pop will be a widget that you can add to your blog (and probably website in general), which will help you capture newsletter signups in a less disrupting & more polite way.


It will wait until the reader has been on the page for a while and read enough of it before a non invasive and very friendly mascot asks them if they would like to see a pop-up where they can sign up. Giving readers this choice can be very powerful!


Polite Pop Demo screenshot


Also really love the idea of creating something that makes tiny ripples, which could lead to larger metaphorical waves. When testing the Polite Pop demo that's exactly the impression that I got. It feels like a solution for making the internet (or at least a part of it) shout a bit less at you. Quite an accomplishment!

Besides being a cool product this is also a great segway into some news!

As many people seem interested in the early adopter stage of products & the rewards that you can get as an "early bird", I am now working on bringing some focus to these products on the platform.


In the meantime, until I figure out the best way for this to work (your inputs are super welcome!), I've made it a bit easier for you to keep up to date with the latest tools that have been added to CC 😊

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Did this a couple weeks in a row, then skipped one and here we are again!

Product of the week #3

This is the 1st request for a featured product everybody!! πŸ™€ Quite exciting!

I have been using this tool a few months back and then stopped my subscription as I felt it was starting to kill more of my time than it was saving. BUT as I lately found out on a chat with it's maker @michalmazurek_ , I was actually using the tool all wrong πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ (makes you wonder how many times this actually happens without such happy endings)

We chatted marketing, twitter, reddit, ahrefs, longtail SEO & how this tool initially started as a side project to help with marketing his main product and it's now a healthy product that helps a lot of users every day.

This product is called Syften!

Syften screenshot


Link: syften.com

It's a social listening tool that makes it super easy to keep an eye on conversations that you can join across.. pretty much the internet.

It basically helps you do marketing in a non-salesy way by building trust on the platforms that your audience uses, which will in turn help with getting more customers.

Pretty simple recipe, but as opposed to other social listening tools (that are mostly targeted at big companies) it gives you access to everything you'll need without the extra unnecessary complexity. And to make things even handier you can set it up so that it brings stuff directly to your inbox / slack!

How I was using Syften wrong (& how you should use it instead)

On our chat when Michal was showing me how he uses Syften, he mentioned something super interesting. He said "I monitor answers not questions" - which (the 1st part) is exactly what I was doing.

I basically set up a few filters for twitter that would bring matches for generic terms like "SaaS" to my inbox - you can imagine how many matches I would get & how I would spend quite a long time to go through them & see which ones I could engage with, if any. It got to the point that it was taking so long, that I built a tool to fix it πŸ˜… (but more on that some other time)

So looking at it from this new pov, Syften has so much newfound value that I reactivated my subscription the day after and been finding that it's now bringing through actually relevant stuff πŸŽ‰

Now bc I found this chat so helpful (& bc outside of building CtrlAlt.CC I do UX design for a living) I made a quick mockup for Syften's landing page, to help the site visitors visualise what Michal described to me. Keep an eye on it for updates! (But this is a sample, with Michal's permission):

Hello, Daniela here πŸ‘‹

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make it easier for you to find helpful tools for startup tasks & now I'm bringing one cool product to your inbox, every so often.

Let's dive straight in!

Product of the week #2

I recently gotten rid of my Adobe subscription as I always hated how clunky their software is & nowadays there are so many makers creating amazing alternatives that I would far rather spend this money on!

That's how I came across Device Frames 

Device Frames screenshot


Link: deviceframes.com

An indie project made by @sasha_codes that in a nutshell, allowed me (a super noob at video editing) to make this slick video here, in about half a day πŸ™€

It doesn't make just videos though. Its main purpose is to allow you to display your designs in beautiful mockups, either static or animated ones. But tbf, when it comes to motion, there aren't that many other tools that allow you to animate mockups so easily and that make them look so good!

What it does super well:

As opposed to super complex software with πŸ’© UX that requires a course to navigate, Device Frames makes moving things and recording them super straightforward. You basically set an initial state & a final state and then the thing just moves from A to B in the way that you picked. And that's it. You got a video!

Editing the lighting, devices & environment to suit your designs, is super straightforward as well and everything is done in a browser tab.


Indie making is not for the faint hearted and can say that Sasha completely nailed it with this product!

Find it featured on the CtrlAlt.CC dashboard like so:

Heyy😊


Daniela here πŸ‘‹ it's been a while so here's a brief refresher to why I am emailing you:

I built CtrlAlt.CC to make finding helpful products (that sometimes fly under the radar) easier. You are part of it (legend! πŸ™Œ) & I am trying out a thing to see if I can make finding stuff even easier for you - this time by bringing 1 cool product directly to your inbox πŸ’Œ every so often.


Don't worry I'll still keep all emails to a minimum bc no one likes an inbox full of stuff they don't have time to read. But let me know if you like this and I'll keep on doing it!

Here we go, product of the week #1


I was kinda struggling with were to start & how I should pick between all the cool af products that I've been testing & using.

But I like getting rid of the blank page block quickly, so I decided that the last product that I've tested and loved is probably a good place to start. It's also a banger πŸ€© & still fresh in my mind, so here we go!

πŸ₯ meet Noise & Gradient (not a sponsored feature)

Noise & Gradient screenshot


Link: noiseandgradient.com

An indie project made by @clarabellum that let's you generate noisy gradients to use in your designs 🀩

I gave it a go making stuff here . It's super straightforward to use and lets you set up your colours, pick noise + chaos levels, generate random variations until you find one (or more) that you are happy with & then download the outcome as jpeg.


Super cool & time saving!

It's now featured on the CtrlAlt.CC dashboard like so:
