What’s your motivation for creating your product?

I’ve been freelancing for 10 years and last year I took my business on the road. I met a lot of great people with interesting projects, but I also ran into a bunch of problems. Trying to manage project communication with clients, converting currencies and organising meetings across timezones just to name a few. I wanted to make something that would solve these problems

 

What are your product features?

RemoteOne automatically converts currencies, calculates timezone differences and updates your clients with real-time project dashboards. It also has all of the features you’d expect from a time-tracking app: simple time logging, automatic invoicing and powerful reporting too.

Any specific launch tips? Or things you would do differently?

Next time I would try and generate more hype about the product before I launched it. I would tell as many people about it as possible and try and get peoples email address on a pre-launch list.

I might also use the ProductHunt Ship feature to try and get more emails.
