I've been busy today working on landing pages for the best app ideas i've come up with so far. The strategy is to make 3 or 4 of these, and use them to collect email addresses for a launch mailing list. I'll use adwords to push traffic to the landing pages, and i'll run a test for a couple weeks to see which of the apps gets the most email addresses, hence is the most popular, and i'll develop that app first.
So today i'm launching ServerScopeApp.com as a landing page for my first app idea: Server Scope. The idea is that it'll be a simple, clean server monitoring service designed for smaller IT businesses and in-house IT departments, who don't have the resources to try roll their own monitoring solution using open-source software, and don't have the money to throw at a consulting firm for one of the enterprisey ones.
If i execute on this the way i envision, it should be dead-simple to monitor a few servers. Anyway, if this interests you, by all means check out Server Scope and sign up for the launch mailing list!
Thanks for reading! And if you want to get in touch, I'd love to hear from you: chris.hulbert at gmail.
