This article mentions some great tips on how to increase your number signups after a beta launch. Curious what other tips/advice people might have for growing users after a beta launch?  
Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to learn SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

A great hack is this sequence. Ex:  Give away a free guide on how to make money and attach it to a free subscription on the website that helps them achieve that process. Assuming that is what the site will help them do.  

Don't start with the site itself.  

Best,
