- Q1: What are your first impressions?
What are the first actions you take?
The first action I take is to fill in the domain name and a forwarding email. However, when I create the free alias, I get directed to a page that I think is on the app side; but I can't get out of it to get back to the homepage and the app section appeared to have an error. I was expecting to land on a page that would get me going with the app portion of the website.
- Q3: Who do you believe the target audience is?
What do you believe a reasonable price is and what do you believe a high price is?
The pricing is tricky since at a certain threshold; I would just purchase an email service and apply the domain I own. Google, for instance, is $5/user; so there is at least that threshold in which to stay under. I think the current free plan and pricing is probably fair - though, I wonder if the use-case expands beyond a couple of emails to forward?
Do you find the product desirable?
I've definitely have had the need for an email using a domain I own forward to an email outside of that domain. Even with That App Show, I don't have an email setup and wouldn't mind having an email@example.com email that forwards to my normal email address. The only thing is I can't respond using the alias; which may or may not be needed depending.
What would you change about the website?
The homepage could sell me a bit more on the service.
- The jump-right-into-it add you domain and forwarding email is a great hook, but then it led me to a random page I couldn't get out of. I think sending me into an account or something where I can do more and see the service in action would help in selling.
- There is a premium pricing section on the homepage; but looking at it made me automatically compare against purchasing a g-suite which is less. But, looking at the pricing page I can tell more of what I'll get with the premium plan. Consider adding a bit more to the homepage so I don't dismiss it based off of limited info.
- When reading through the site, I kept wondering if I'd see something in regards to 'hey, we get all of your emails and can scan them, but we don't' sort of privacy statement. There is a link in the footer that speaks to it; but I'd consider making that more visible in a way somewhere - homepage or pricing page; so that I can rest assured that you don't scan my emails and sell data.
