What's the typical turnaround time for responding to sign ups? It said I'd be contacted shortly, but I haven't received a confirmation email or anything so I'm not sure it went through.

You will get specific actions for each suggestion (some automatically done for you, some manual). It won't be just a list of sites.

You will get a content plan with templates. For example, you will be able to make an interview questionnaire for industry experts, we'll find experts and get an interview for your blog every week. On our higher plans, you will also be able to get well-researched articles written.

There's no dashboard at the moment, but might be something I consider adding later on.

The marketing plan is tailored for each customer, so if you're interested, please sign up with your details and I'll be in touch.

Thanks for the interest and pointing out the typo!

When an old brick-and-mortar business does it, it's price gouging. When a hot valley startup does it, it's "surge pricing". Welcome to the tech press.

I swear term sheets must have a clause that requires you to use an acquisition blog post template.

"When we started FooBar.io $n years ago, we had $VISION_WITH_RAINBOWS_AND_UNICORNS in our young eyes.

...

It’s been an incredible journey and we are proud of what we've accomplished in the last $n years.

...

We were surprised when $BigCo approached us in the spring. But as talks progressed, we realised our magnetic fields were super aligned and in fact we are twins separated at birth, merely waiting to be reunited.

...

(Yes, we were building $mobifotosocioapp for Android, whereas BigCo is an ad retargeting corporation for iOS, so we may look very different, but actually it's turtles all the way down.)

...

With all the free snacks and Rifts now at our disposal, we can march forth with double the speed in achieving our real mission which was always actually about whatever BigCo's mission is right now.

...

None of this would have been possible without you, our amazing users. So, for you, we have a special something.

...

We won't simply admit that we'll be ignoring and soon shutting down your beloved app. Instead, let's pretend that everything's gonna be the same and we'll update you when "something changes" and give you ample time (at least 3 hours) to download your data in the extremely unlikely case that we pull the plug.

...

You guys are the best. Thanks for making us rich. Love from Jo, Flo, Beau, Mo and $obligatory_pet."

What do you mean by your own analytics? How do you do that?

Tracking data-points based on events and user and storing them into our DB.

How do you look at and analyse that data?

Wait for the monthly hiring post. The next one's on 1st April. See past ones here - https://news.ycombinator.com/submitted?id=whoishiring

Edit: Out of interest, what type of work do you have to offer?

Thanks for the input. About your question - We're looking for a full-stack developer with proficiency using the .NET framework (C# MVC, ASP.NET) and MS-SQL. We're building a SaaS web app that we indent to scale, and currently trying to complete beta version.
