Starting something new begins with shipping the first version. I’ve been working on a social media campaign tracking app for a while now. It started early 2015 when helping the Detroit Grand Prix track their social activity leading up to and through race weekend. Although that initial version was launched, it left much to be desired in the codebase, which was thrown together in a weekend and hard coded for a single purpose.
The perfect storm
Over the past year I’ve taken over the Laravel Detroit meetup group and in my spare time continued to re-write the app, multiple times, to learn and use it for various other events. Late last year Taylor Otwell, the creator of Laravel, announced Spark, an addition that would make it easy to stand up a Saas app in Laravel. Jumping on board with the alpha, beta and now final release got me up to speed with Vue.js and gave me some time to think about the intended audience for this social tracking app.
Creator’s ship. This week I was traveling a bit with some more down time than expected, it gave me the excuse to write this up and ship the initial version of the app, version 0.1.
Down to the core, RT Reach is for small business and groups who run multiple events throughout the year and need to report the success and metrics of multi-channel social media campaigns. It tracks account posts, views, reach and most influential accounts per campaign on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube initially. Sums it all up with clear at a glance charts and daily summary emails.
Sound like you?
Initially I’ll be offering concierge onboarding to work with a first set of customers and walk in their shoes to refine the product for a wider audience.

Last week my wife and I welcomed a new addition into our family, Angelo DeNardis. It has been exciting and awesome at the same time. It has also allowed me to catch up on some much needed reading, writing and thinking. The links below caught my attention this last week and I hope you find something interesting.
