๐Ÿ‘€ How was the idea born?

I've often been told that if you don't have a project idea, copy what's working and add your vision to it. That's what I did. I love Typeform (a tool that allows you to create beautiful step-by-step forms) and I wanted to create a Typeform alternative. I looked at the market and discovered Landbot. I immediately fell in love with their conversational experiences. But I was not a fan of their building experience. That's when I decided that I'll be working on a Landbot alternative, with my vision: Freedom and Ease of use.

To build that kind of chatbots, you need a tool that gives you enough freedom to closely tie it to your business logic. The build experience should be a reliable and fun experience. You also need a space where you can analyse your results so that you can incrementally improve your bots.

This is what Typebot provides

How had you tested an idea? Have u build a simple waitlist or mvp instead?

MVP in 2 months, official launch on LinkedIn.



The idea did not need to be tested because the market exists (all chatbot builders attest of this). It's only a matter of taking a thin slice of it

๐Ÿ”ฎ How did you get your first 100 paying customers?

47 customers after ~2 years. The first pricing plan (the most popular) grew from $15 to $39 today.
What helped me bootstrap my product is doing a lifetime deal campaign on SaaS Mantra It helped me get ~700 early adopters who would eventually become a fan of the product. It also allowed me to feel less alone

After the lifetime deal campaign, I didn't have a clear strategy but just build a great product and don't forget to spread the word (Twitter / Linkedin / Reddit)

๐Ÿ’ป How do you deal with customer support? Any lifehacks?

Well, I write great documentations with Mintlify and record videos with Loom.

I recently removed direct customer support for free users. I think it is necessary at some point if you work alone on a project otherwise itโ€™d take too much of your time. Typebot has a Discord community. I redirect free users to the community support:
