We do a quick recap of our launch of Larder.
A look behind the scenes at Melbourne startup Hello Code. Founders Josh Sharp and Belle Beth Cooper discuss the ins and outs of building products, talking to customers, and navigating early startup life.
In this episode we talk about finding a niche for Larder, being somewhat unwilling to commit to it yet, and when to start marketing things you don't do yet.
We kick off a new set of episodes about our latest product, Larder, by talking about what it is, where the idea came from, and how it fits into our business.
We talk about receiving feedback on Exist from users, why it's both frustrating and rewarding, and how to give others good feedback.
In this episode Belle shares the issues and setbacks she's come across in building a HealthKit integration for Exist.
We've been on hiatus for a few months, so we bring you up to speed on Belle's new day job at Ghost, and what's been happening with Exist and Littlelogs (plus future plans).
We discuss what it's like to live and work together in the same house, how to have our own space and work/life balance, and get lots done on our startup. In our startup house. This is the final episode of our first season.
A large part of Belle's job is content marketing. We talk about what that is, how we do it, and what we get out of it. This is a bumper edition with lots of detail on how Belle works and how to make it work for YOU (if you are a startuppy person making a product too).
We talk about our recently launched Android and iOS apps, the process behind making them, and why they differ from each other and the web app.
We talk about our Hello Code work situation including the ongoing need for client work, having to watch our expenses, and how we make it all work without going crazy or broke.
When you get more press, you get more visibility, and that means becoming a target of more unsolicited contact — both from helpful people, and people who just want to sell you stuff. We talk about our experiences and the reasons behind saying no.
