My programmer I contracted who built Scratchback.com said to me the other day…
“What you’ve created here is either going to be huge and help millions of people with websites have fun and make money online, or it’ll bomb.”
He’s right. And the not knowing how it will be perceived scares the crap out of me and also motivates me.
The more I stare at my web publishing Frankenstein, the more I keep asking myself if it’s too simple to really catch on and work. When you work on something for so long you can begin to lose real perspective on it… clouding your brain with doubts.
Honestly though, my biggest fear in releasing Scratchback is also what I think will be its greatest strength.
That it’s simple and fun. Maybe too simple?
No giant marketplaces that make things confusing. No controlling system that only allows you to price based upon someone else’s criteria. No fancy frills or complicated coding or processes to get started. No paid reviews that could possibly bring in the integrity of your website or blog.
None of that stuff.
I guess we’ll find out soon enough as the first beta approaches. I’m cutting off the beta signup list by the end of the week. I’ve gotten way more test users than I could possibly ever use for the first beta, which will only be a handful of testers anyway. I’m even considering only releasing the second beta test sample to those are signed up and making the general public wait for a few months.
Yes, I said a few months, or maybe more. I really want this system to grow slowly so we can work out the kinks and make it a robust, stable solution that runs on auto-pilot for everyone.
There’s still time to get into the beta list. If you want in, sign up now.
I leave you with this. Don’t EVER give up on your passion. I have not, and I cannot wait to show you what I’ve created.
