1/ I wanted to show you some sneak peek this week, but instead we DEPLOYED TO PRODUCTION 🔥😄

If you’re a creator, get an invite here 👉 https://t.co/D8H6g8TL9o

Week 2 highlights: our first ever podcast 🎙, meeting @Jason 🦄, shipping @BREWdotcom alpha 🚢 & laptop stickers!

2/ First off, thanks for the mind-blowing response last week (120k+ views 😲 omgwtfasdasd!)… absolutely pushed us to get the product out there.

also, there’s something magical about watching people try a buggy product and fixing it on the go 🤓 👾

3/ Thanks @JasonDemant for inviting us to grab some behind the scenes at @LAUNCH.

As a huge fan and avid listener of the @TWistartups show🎙, it was great watching @Jason do his thing live!
4/ 🎙@domainnamewire invited us to chat about acquiring https://t.co/GOQJ7L2faV domain and that was officially our first podcast ever. Check it out here: https://t.co/eusVCOlUSb.

You nailed it your first time, Maddy! 🍻 Thanks for having us on the show, Andrew.
5/ Great news: Brew partnered with @Tipalti to enable payouts for creators everywhere (unlike @kickstarter which only support 26 countries).

Platforms like Twitch use Tipalti to payout instantly and via multiple methods like Check, PayPal, local bank transfer, etc.
6/ Best thing in startups this week: #24hrstartup challenge!

Massive respect to my friends @Booligoosh, @thepatwalls, @matteing and rest of the makers who pulled this off. It was so much fun watching you build those products live. I feel like a slacker :)

Together we ship! 🚢
7/ And some great news in publishing: dutch-based TheCorrespondent raised half a million within 2 days after announcing in the US, entirely funded by their (future) readers. Congrats, @ejpfauth!

Can’t wait for this to become the norm.
8/ 🗣Unpopular opinion: mainstream adoption of paywall is great news for consumers.

Not only will it improve the quality of content and overall user experience, but it should also drive the subscription prices down.
9/ Currently it is high fixed cost to set up a paywall, and publishers are forced to squeeze more juice out of the paying audience 🍹

It’s no wonder conversion rates are appallingly low. Subscription prices are usually high, and so is the friction to support.
10/ At Brew, democratising paywall tech and removing all the friction b/w publishers and the audience is an important objective.

But is that our short term focus? Nope.
11/ I’ll say it — our short term goal is to help 2000 creators earn an average of $500/m by EOY 2019.

That is $1M monthly volume. This is ambitious but achievable, and sounds like a great start for what we’re set out to do.

Yeah, feel free to bookmark this tweet 🙈
12/ Next week:

📊 Some metrics for week 1 of alpha release (hopefully)

☕️ How we’re building some really cool features for creators without compromising the UX (🎁custom rewards, 🎽merchandising, 📰ad-free experience for publishers, 💻webhooks for makers…)
13/ Thanks for reading, and for all the support. Means the world to us 🙂

p.s our designers have some really cool laptop stickers in the works. Just drop a 👋 in the comments and I’ll hook you up when it's ready 👊 #brewingup 🍵

The chorus of this song uses the shlokas taken from Sundarkand of Ramayana.

It is a series of Sanskrit shlokas recited by Jambavant to Hanuman to remind Him of his true potential.

1. धीवर प्रसार शौर्य भरा: The brave persevering one, your bravery is taking you forward.


2. उतसारा स्थिरा घम्भीरा: The one who is leaping higher and higher, who is firm and stable and seriously determined.

3. ुग्रामा असामा शौर्या भावा: He is strong, and without an equal in the ability/mentality to fight

4. रौद्रमा नवा भीतिर्मा: His anger will cause new fears in his foes.

5.विजिटरीपुरु धीरधारा, कलोथरा शिखरा कठोरा: This is a complex expression seen only in Indic language poetry. The poet is stating that Shivudu is experiencing the intensity of climbing a tough peak, and likening

it to the feeling in a hard battle, when you see your enemy defeated, and blood flowing like a rivulet. This is classical Veera rasa.

6.कुलकु थारथिलीथा गम्भीरा, जाया विराट वीरा: His rough body itself is like a sharp weapon (because he is determined to win). Hail this complete

hero of the world.

7.विलयगागनथाला भिकारा, गरज्जद्धरा गारा: The hero is destructive in the air/sky as well (because he can leap at an enemy from a great height). He can defeat the enemy (simply) with his fearsome roar of war.
