Anything that wants to be shared, wants a good social media preview
- Getting a full image card is so much more attention-grabbing then just a plain link
But dynamically rendering this stuff is kinda annoying. Everyone does this individually.
- Base: Generate a text card that has the title of the site
- Then: Add your logo and colors
- Then: customize with page preview???
- ??? Can we just link to
- Who’s the target audience?
- Completely nontechnical?
- Extension for e.g. Wordpress sites?
- Shopify? Squarespace?
- (These probably already have this problem solved, but todo verify)
- Technical but too busy to do themselves?
- This product be really viral with watermark (piggyback on all sharing), the way Intercom is viral
- Add a watermark that says “generated with cardify”
- Fairly compelling business model:
- “Make your site more viral”
- Could provide analytics on top of this?
- If we can track redirects. Maybe not.
- Github’s writeup on generating image previews
- Vercel’s repo
- If you’re writing a chat service and want to have pretty previews
