    Nice but you should probably get rid of the "floating" effect. It doesn't really serve any purpose, makes it harder to read the content, and is not something that I as a SaaS owner and potential customer would want on my own site.

      Hi Sacha, thanks for the feedback. Big fan of your work (Sidebar is my favorite newsletter).

      I thought the effect was subtle enough to not distract readers from the content. I do think it serves a purpose though: adds a little life to the website and makes the long form content a little more digestible.

      But I'll see how I can tone it down, especially on mobile :)

        That sounds really good for one week! How are you getting the word out?

          I got featured on a couple of design inspiration sites like Lapa Ninja and Landing folio, that brought a good amount of traffic.

          I also joined relevant facebook groups where my ideal customers hang out and started engaging and creating content there. Getting a lot of relevant traffic from people checking out my profile.

          Trying to create and share content everywhere. Writing blogs, posts, Dribbble, Linkedin, Medium!

    Great job! I think it's a superb idea. The layout is a bit weird on my 2560 monitor (probably not a lot of your users) but if you wanted to look into it for quick fixes.

    Well executed concept though. Let us know how it plays out for sure.

    Designers, writers and marketers do not possess the skills to understand your product, your customers and to position you as the perfect fit.

    As much as I love the business aspect of your pitch, this line sounds offensive to people you will be working with on the projects. It could be re-written to be less toxic and a bit more humble. Keep up the good work; cheers!

    I really like the simple visual style and I think it's an interesting approach you're taking with your business! I just signed up for the newsletter. I would probably be more clear on what it is that you're actually doing. It seems a bit buried on the page that what you actually do is design and build websites. I would move the heading "I build websites that convert visitors" up to make it clear from the beginning. Because of the sub-heading "I help SaaS businesses convert visitors into customer through powerful positioning and crystal-clear messaging." I thought you only did copy writing. Also, you should make the whole area of your buttons clickable. It only works when you click the text. Clicking anywhere else inside it doesn't work (screen recording: https://cl.ly/a9b491575e23).

      Hey Simon, Thanks for the feedback. Someone else had mentioned that as well. I'll be making some changes to make the services I offer more clear. Thought I'd go with this for now as I've been delaying and perfecting the site for way too long!

      The button clickability is a Calendly implementation problem that I'm looking into!

      Thanks for taking the time to screen record, hope you enjoy the course!

    Nice work! I was intrigued right away because of I own a SaaS and positioning ourselves is hard on our homepage, but...

    Does your website suck at acquiring customers?

    Well, my website does not suck, but could use improvement. I've just put myself outside of your group of potential customers because well, yeah :(

    I see everything on the site is in first person, but I can't find on the site where to read about said person. Any reason for this Sumit? I wish I could read about the "I" behind many of the statements.

      Hi there! Valid point, I'm gonna add a section (or a whole page maybe?) about me. A couple more people had mentioned this as well. Had to launch it so went ahead without it. But thanks for the feedback! :)

        That would be great. Leave another comment when you have one up and running, I'd love to read it.

    This is really clever and I would encourage you to call yourself a "growth designer" - imo thats the terminology used in the marketplace for your skillset

    Whole lot of arrogance and a whole lack of clarity. Get off your pedestal.

    Really good job Sumit! My feedback though would be:

    1) I don't see any information about you, if I'm a client, I'd love to learn more about you as a person.

    2) The floating animations sound a bit cheesy and it hurts the reading experience, especially that you already did a good job on the visual aspect of design.

    3) One or two case studies of the companies you worked with and how you delivered good results to them would be a killer here.

    Overall, good job and I'm already subscribed to your email newsletter.
