Hi all Founder of Clientflow here - let me know if you have any questions & what you think :)
Nathan Bashaw
Welcome, @Massaroma! What inspired you to build Clientflow?

@nbashaw Thanks Nathan. I've been a freelance designer for over 6 years and my biggest pain point has been client delays. It could be something as simple as getting feedback, copy, images etc. but somehow most of my clients would take forever to do it. So now I'm building a product to solve my own pain point and hopefully a few others ;)

Welcome, @Massaroma! It's often said entrepreneurs should "scratch their own itch" but sometimes you don't know if others have the same itch or at least how big of an audience there is with your problem. How did you validate the market and estimate its size building Clientflow?

@rrhoover Thanks! To validate the idea & market I reached out to over a dozen or so agencies and freelancers and asked them if they run into client delays on their projects. Every single one of them said yes. So I pitched my idea and they all really liked how I was tackling the issue. I got a really good response from some big name agencies who wanted to use the app, so that was definitely a motivating factor. An interesting note - My product is very niche and its niche for a reason. At a high level we are a project management app, but we aren't competing with the Basecamp and Trellos of the world. That space is too noisy and hard to gain market share. We're pitching ourselves as a solution to reduce client delays - not a project management suite. I think thats an important idea for any startup - they should really try to get a subset of the market. For us, its been amazing and the feedback / interest has been tremendous.

Organize, track, and standardize client communication and approvals. All in one place.

Empower your team by making all client communication transparent.

Add process and structure to the “art” of managing clients.

Managing clients should be an organized effort, not seemingly endless and ad hoc.

Clients will love staying in their inbox, no learning curve needed

Spend time communicating with clients, not explaining to them a new project management app.

All team conversations with clients, in one place.

Teams that use email with clients suffer from email inbox silos. ClientFlow lets teams watch projects progress and reduces internal confusion and "catch up" meetings.

Easily collect approvals and assets from clients

Move tasks that were previously relegated to emails into common view, so when assets are uploaded or approvals are confirmed by the client, it's on-the-record and available for your whole team to see.

Automate your team's repetitive communication with clients

For example:
