Crafting the 2024 Vision for CrowdField: Three Worlds for an AI and NoCode Ecosystem in Oil & Gas

When a year winds down, are you the type who reflects on the past year with teary eyes and stacks up a load of New Year's resolutions?

Yeah, me neither.


Looking back, I'm proud to have gotten CrowdField off the ground and to have gained some traction. While the progress made was nothing to get too excited about, it's quite fair considering I've been running this project solo and on the side.

Time has been a real constraint, especially when juggling numerous tasks like web development, graphic design, branding, LinkedIn content strategy, copywriting, product creation, marketing and advertising, sales, customer support, and more.

This journey of solopreneurship has been intense, yet I've enjoyed it immensely. I've accumulated a wealth of skills and experience that fuel my enthusiasm to keep pushing forward in 2024.

Based on the public response and user feedback over the past months, I've been exploring alternative visions for CrowdField's expansion. My goal is to better serve our users, address real industry challenges, and create a hub for growth, innovation, and monetization. Now, I've reached a pivotal moment where your input is invaluable.

I've envisioned three distinct worlds, each with its unique focus and offerings. Your feedback will be the guiding star for the 2024 plan, helping me decide which world I bring to life.
