Landing page optimization is one of the most important, and most time-consuming tasks for small business owners, especially the less technically savvy. There are a bunch of different routes you can take to get one made, but very few tools that help you make your own. One such company just launched, Spaces. We had a chance to ask the Spaces team a few questions about their new landing page builder:
What is Spaces?
The number one goal of Spaces is to make it fun and easy to try out business ideas, and build a new business. We came up with the idea in 2013 and have been working hard ever since to realize it.
Who is your product aimed at? Who is the target user?
Entrepreneurs that wants to try out some side projects, people who wants to be entrepreneurs, business owners that just doesn’t want to deal with all the technical hassles.
How is Spaces different from what is currently available?
Motivation, spirit, humor, and looking to not do iterations of existing solutions, but shift the level.
Tell us your founding story. Was there an “ah ha” moment?
We’re two remote working guys from Dream Conception with strong expertise into web development, entrepreneurship and design. We started Spaces as we thought it would be a great tool for both us and others to test out new business ideas quickly, and eventually build a thriving businesses on top of.
The initial traction with paid early-bird signups was great with a lot of positive feedback on a few mockups, and a video even though we didn’t have a single line of code ready. Now we see people from all ranges of business creating interesting landing pages for their ideas, that be monthly t-shirt subscription, personal mentorship, digital music loops, Mexican candy subscription and packages for travel.
Tell us about your founding team and their backgrounds.
Dan Schultzer and Kasper Christensen started the Dream Conception organisation in 2010, and has been working to realise their different startup ideas. Their first startup cSupport was to put a dent in the saturated, and displeasing live chat market. After was Peakium to connect any kind of payment gateway with an easy to use API, so you could even charge bitcoins with no problem. Latest is Spaces. Both Kasper and Dan has had much experience with web development in the past.
What’s the next step? What are your short-term goals?
To become fully accessible around the world. Emerging market entrepreneurs should have just as good an opportunity to do a new business.
