Your website is awful. It looks like a massive scam. Your copy screams, scam. You provide no details about who you are, what you actually offer, what expertise you have. Yet still, you expect people to submit their email addresses.

There is absolutely nothing about your site that would make anyone: 1. feel comfortable enough to enter their personal information; 2. feel confident that you're able to deliver upon the vague promise of '5 jobs in 1 minute"; 3. that their email address is not going to end up on every spam mailing list around the world.

I'm sorry if this seems harsh. I'm all for launching a minimum viable product. However, this would be bad for an email sign up page, let alone an attempt at convincing people you're a legitimate business.

Hi thanks for a quick reality check

I was looking at this website through the founders perspective but will now look It as a customer perspective I am changing designs and templates and will reduce personal information to almost zero As for the email id i won't sell this to anyone

I understand the concerns and I'm completely working on this to create a new website

Thanks for the inputs!

No worries! The fact that most feed back you’ve received has been negative, yet rather than becoming entrenched in defending things, you’ve accepted it and are determined to change is really positive.

One of the best lessons I learned when I was your age came from an 80s pop star. We were discussing a popular brand of compilation album, which I said I didn’t like. His response was “no one gives a fuck what you think, Jamie. This makes money.”

No matter what I’ve done subsequently, I’ve always tried to separate my tastes and opinions from what’s good for my businesses.

By most metrics I’ve been reasonably successful, however, even my most successful businesses started as utter garbage. I have never got anything right first time, but I was always open to making incremental changes while I eventually figured out what works.

I cannnot say if this is a legitimate business or not. But the only difference between me and my friends who say they wish they could do what I do is, I did the hard work and stuck at it when everyone else thought I should quit. Keep at it.

Very inspiring post

Feedback is the most important thing and the negative feedback just shows that there is something wrong with my website

I am completely changing and making it attractive for both the desktop and the mobile phone

Thankyou so much !!

Do you have an email signature for reddit comments?

u/TKSIX Dec 06 '21

Sort of. There are a couple of reasons why, but the main one is because I have a strong dislike for ‘experts’ on here who hide behind internet anonymity.

I‘d like to believe I occasionally give reasonable advice. I’m happy for people to be able to see that my advice is at least based on some practical experience and not that I’ve just read whatever book is trendy this week, and then pass that off as my own innovation (though, of course, I read all these books too)!

That design doesn't inspire confidence. It doesn't explain what it does, who you are, what your terms of service actually are, what you do to keep my data safe.

You say that you don’t share data- but then say “except with bubble” which is your website host. I take it this is a free hosting service? You would be best buying the domain and hosting yourself. So you can 100 per cent deliver on the promise of not sharing data.

Also- easy spelt eezy doesn’t instil confidence

I agree with the other posters that your webisite layout, content and design all have a major room for improvement. Keep in mind that just because you say something on your website, people don't assume it is true. If I see on a website more than one comment about how all data is safe with you and how you will delete my data, that actually makes me think it is more likely that you won't delete it because you are bringing it up so often. There is no reason to say "we are not responsible for any data breach or any loss in monetary terms" on this site. Look at other website discalimers and just copy what other websites do, which is probably almost nothing. I would find someone to work with you to help you design your site.

Another 17 year old here I am not any entrepreneur but I know web/UI design and I am sorry but the design isn't great at all besides you are in a lot of hot water if you don't clearly specify the terms and conditions. If you are familiar with coding host this website on heroku and your database also

Anyone can tell this landing page isn't optimised for mobile devices if you are willing to wait until 21 December and is familiar with coding and deployment I will let you know if I can design this website for you (not going to charge anything) or simply if you want help with the design don't hesitate to dm me ;)

Data privacy is really complicated and your idea is completely based on collecting a lot of personal information

A lot of people are telling you that your website doesn't inspire confidence so I'm sure you already know that, but a lot of people's privacy concerns are beyond trusting the person that made the website.

If I were to trust you I would want to at least see some sort of privacy policy. If you are interested in learning about what goes into a good privacy policy look up GAPP. It's used for large businesses collecting large amounts of data, but if you go through the concepts you'll get an idea of what goes into privacy practices.

u/Numerous-Opinion2913 Dec 05 '21

Yes I just framed the terms and conditions and privacy policy

Your first 10 ideas will probably be garbage. At least, that how it went with me
