As I've worked through cold outreach, I realized that I didn't really enjoy building what I was selling and I was getting feedback to build more tools that I didn't enjoy building or selling.

I've wanted to build tools for the energy industry for a long time and figured if I'm going to be selling, I should sell something I enjoy working on. I went back to the drawing board and created a new site:
https://www.piperiv.com

I just launched it yesterday. My plan is to spend the majority of my work time to continue selling and building the site. My assumption is if I keep focused on it, I'll eventually gain some momentum.

Hi [Name], quick question: Is there any public data you need in the oil & gas industry that is frustrating to use or access?

Based on your Twitter account, I'm assuming you work in the field.

I'm a software developer looking to build data tools for the oil & gas industry (things like tracking permits, centralized info postings, a FERC filing database, interactive EIA reports, interactive BHI rig reports, etc.)

Is there any data that you wish was easier to use or access?

Hi [Name], I'm reaching out to commodity traders for advice. I saw some of your replies in natgas threads.

I'm a software developer looking to build data and mapping tools around public data in the oil & gas industry (things like centralized info postings, parsing/analyzing FERC filings, interactive interfaces to EIA data, rig counts, etc).

Is there any kind of data tool that you wish you had or is there any data that you spend a lot of time with where you wish you could easily filter out the noise?

Hi [Name], I'm reaching out to active energy traders.

I'm a software developer looking to build data and mapping tools around public data in the oil & gas industry (things like centralized info postings, parsing/analyzing FERC filings, interactive interfaces to EIA data, rig counts, etc).

I'm even open to building weather tools based off NOAA/NWS data (it sounds like weather is something you really dig into).

Are there any specific tools that you would like to see to help you analyze data?

Hey [Name], congratulations on crossing [milestone], that's awesome!

Not sure if you've seen, but I'm working on building a marketing & sales community for bootstrappers, solo founders, and small businesses called SellInPublic.com

I saw on LinkedIn you mentioned that you like to try to [LinkedIn post details] and you clearly have a lot of insights with SEO. It would be great to have your voice and insights on the site.

It uses the same login system as NumbersQ (now called MetricRiv) so you basically already have an account!

If you have any questions or run into any problems (it is a very early beta), please let me know. You can even [additional private details] 🤣.

Either way, keep doing what you are doing - it is great seeing you grow!

I'm currently working through a switch in focus.

I've been trying to market MetricRiv.com but I've realized that it is very difficult to onboard users because of the complexities involved in connecting to APIs. It is also a pain to work with various APIs because they are constantly changing and some require you to apply to even get access.

As I've been building SellInPublic.com and CRMJot.com, I've realized I enjoy working on these two projects a lot more which made me realize I like building tools. And the industry I've always wanted to build tools for is the energy industry.

I grew up with connections to the energy industry so it was always something in the back of my mind. One of my early freelance clients was funded by an energy trader. As I've done more research, I realized that there are a lot of opportunities for tools that make it easier to work with data.

My plan going forward is to build data tools for my new (very early stages project) PipeRiv.com and focus on marketing and sales for that app. I'm still going to continue to run and update my other projects but my primary focus for now is PipeRiv.

Hi [name], I saw that you are a Bubble dev and NoCode maker and wanted to get some advice.

I've been building a metric tracking tool that connects with various services and brings all your metrics to a single page.

I currently have Airtable integrated but I haven't added any other NoCode tools like Bubble.

Do you think metric tracking is something the NoCode community would be interested in? And if so, what tools would you recommend as the highest priority for integrations?

Thanks, Anthony

Hi, I saw that you had some responses to [industry] posts. I'm reaching out to [job position] and those working with [industry].

I build metric and mapping software tools and wanted to get advice from those working with [industry].

Are there any metrics or data that you would like to track but don't have a good way to do that right now? I can pull in any kind of public data and would be willing to manually set up anything you are needing.
