Building Pay2Ask for real now

Power of retweets and why I'm in love with copywriting now

I've been researching markets, use cases, and similar businesses for about 3 weeks now.

My friends and I decided on tackling for real now.

I have since started taking Sam Parr's CopyThat course. Learning better copywriting is always a good thing.

Pay2Ask started with me getting a message from Olivia Carneiro, a world-renowned economist. She wanted a way to allow people to pay her directly to get her expertise-filled answers.

I started looking for similar solutions, but couldn't find any.

How come no one has done this? For sure some experts want to get paid by their audience to answer tricky questions.

And for sure I would want to have a direct 1:1 channel with my favorite influencers.

So Pay2Ask was born.

I've been documenting the journey here on this blog and weekly on my youtube channel.

First steps

Did the designs in over 2 weeks, plus got a landing page set up. Sent it to Y Combinator to get them to review it (hopefully we appear in their next youtube video).

And now we're on to setting up ads to capture as much info as possible from people with the same pain as ours.

Some positive surprises

During this week I got a very nice surprise. Sam actually retweeted my post.

Let's see how that goes for ads.

Other than that I'm still figuring out how to set up ads in multiple channels and create campaigns, hopefully will get some kicker ads by the end of the week.

That is it for today, and I will see you in the next indiehacker post!
