Fake door testing to validate ideas.

Qoals is one of my side projects which started with a personal need: a simple & straightforward goal-based project management tool, then turned into something worth investing more time.

In a world bloated by productivity tools, I wanted to see if there is any demand for yet another project management tool first. I bought a domain, built a landing page and submitted it to producthunt, betalist and some landing page galleries to see one simple thing: will people sign up for a free beta? I used fake door testing and redirected the users who wanted to sign-up to a typeform, asking them some questions like the size of their team, the feature set they need, etc.

The results were better than I expected, I got over 3000 visitors in a few days and over 10% conversion rate without spending a cent!
