Hey there Pushstarters
I am Abhishek Kaushik, currently a pre-final year undergrad. When I joined my college, as every fresher I was also on an exploring streak, trying to know about things around me.
Since I am from a technical background, I was very interested in knowing about the cool projects my seniors or batchmates were working on, I would reach up to seniors and after talking to maybe 10-20 I would find some of them building wonderful things, I would be in touch with them, taking their guidance & learning from them while building my own little projects.
Fast forward 1 year, I realised one of my own classmates was building cool websites all through 1st year, which I never knew about, neither did my classmates, while his projects were really helpful ones.
I wanted to find a solution to this, such that I could find all the cool things people were building around me, not only tech projects, blogs, some students maintain really creative Instagram pages, YouTube channels, etc.
Hence I brainstormed, built a prototype, took feedback and finally built "Creatorlist - A platform for showcasing your side projects"
In this platform, students can showcase their side projects, find useful tools, resources & links to build their own. And most importantly to get inspired and learn from cool creators out there.
As of now, the platform supports Website, YouTube Channels, Blogs, Instagram Pages, Hardware Projects, Apps. I did a mini launch in my college and my social media accounts, and on the first day got 200+ users signed up with a reach of 5k and counting.
I am looking for your feedback and if you ever faced the same problem during your college life do share what you think about this.
Discussions here in Pushstart have always brought forward interesting perspectives from curious minds like yours hence I am looking forward to your suggestions.
- The plan forward is to retain the users
- Make the website a Progressive Web App to send Push Notifications
- Make a bi-weekly newsletter to inspire creators (sort of Grammarly type, your post inspired 100 people today, etc)
- Then promote it again.
I am all ears, over to you.
