How to Start a Two-Bit Operation: Small Business Tips

From start to small business. Learn and live vicariously.

A few days ago we asked the supportive community over at Hacker News for some feedback on PickFu. We were extremely pleased to see that the overall sentiment was positive and that there were other entrepeneurs out there who have the same need for quicky and cheap polling.  In the spirit of some of the comments, we now offer a few more options for the number of reponses (50, 100, and 200) and for some basic demographic targeting (gender and age group).

If you’ve got some new logos you need to a/b test go give it a try!

As an entrepreneur, there are many times when you want to get some feedback on something you’re working on or planning to work on.  It might be the name of your new company, the strategic direction of your products, or even just different versions of ad copy or images.  Sure you can annoy your friends with emails or go to a coffee shop and ask people, but in either scenario you’ll be getting a pretty skewed sampling and wasting your time.  

What if I told you that you could get 50 answers to your question in a matter of a couple hours, complete with explanations and demographic info?  All for just 5 bucks. Would that interest you? 

If it does, then PickFu is for you!
