Awesome Ian!
here are my thoughts on the new home page.
overall:
looks fantastic, is very actionable and can see contents on the surface which is excellent. The influencer section is on fire!!
Here are a few things I'd consider:
1) the downward arrow should be seen above the fold
2) 10 years anniversary could also be snipped above the fold. (credibility)
3) I'd A/b test the posts to be:
a) as now, dynamic with all the recent/relevant etc
b) static with the highest-profile people/companies/activities. (social proof)

1) Homepage:

I really like the new homepage layout Ian! A few thoughts:

- I agree with Alex about the idea of potentially including more social proof in the hero area.
- I love the fact you only need an email address to sign up. You could perhaps consider reducing clicks even more by including the email input on the homepage for signups?

2) Community search:

The influencers’ search is really responsive and easy to use 🚀, and I really like the way you’ve included the quote.

Hi! I have just joined this network... and wonder why it has taken so long. :B) Also, working out where to begin... A founder startup sounds perfect. Thx for setting up. Here's me, this week:

1) Name of company/business
Saltwater Nomads

2) 1 line description
A consultancy focused on the remote working lifestyle - delivering award-winning events and experiences, focused on Croatia and the Balkans but returning to Aussie shores soon.

3) Goal of the week (free form 1-3 most important things to accomplish)
i. Submit 2022 awards nominations
ii. Submit speaker topic for said awards
iii. Get website back up. Oops. Summer, didn't even notice.

4) Ask the community:
For digital nomad events, what do you expect to get out of them? What do you think is missing from ones you've been to? Especially around inclusivity and slow travel. Thanks!
