Ready for launch?!
It was Thursday night, a little past midnight and we gave Maurice the keys to launch. It had been a few busy weeks and there was little time to slack. We ate, slept, drank and chilled (whenever possible) at the office because we set a spontaneous deadline. We sent out an email with a deadline and we committed to it. On that Thursday everyone was present and we invited some friends to celebrate the moment.
Maurice pushed the button to launch the website. We sent out the email notifying you of our launch and we cast Analytics on our screen, so we could all watch what would happen. And boy, what a beautiful moment it was.
You surprised us by massively visiting our new page. We saw orange dots popping up over the entire globe and you started ordering right-away. We felt your support in our adventure and we got immediate feedback. We stayed up all night to prepare your orders and we stayed up all night, listing and writing down any feedback we received. We ended the night with a small celebration, cake and a lot of laughs.
The day after..
Being at work for a few days on end tends to have its consequences. Having launched our new website I kind of had the illusion, we would have some kind of rest. I woke from that dream pretty soon and discovered for myself that the launch was just the beginning (I know, sweet innocent naivety).
We came together and discussed what priorities to set and what our first goals would be for the coming 6 months. We sent out messages to friends, colleagues and partners to request their feedback and got to work!
Small updates became larger updates and we looked into giving you a more pleasant experience in navigating the website, ordering Lently and communicating correctly. To all those that contributed in any way
