Micro SaaS are cool, but do they have the potential to grow into big SaaS? ๐Ÿค”

I have crossed 200 followers! ๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks to every lovely person from the #startups, #indiehackers, #buildinpublic fam. ๐Ÿฅฒ

Let's keep going and crushing. ๐Ÿฆพ
I had an idea for a finance jobs board.

Then I came up with the name, OnlyFinance. ๐Ÿคฃ

What do you think?

I found an official Shopee group on Telegram. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

"This is a goldmine right??", I thought to myself. ๐Ÿคฉ

So I started to cold DM some users from there. ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Then my account got flagged as spam and became limited. ๐Ÿฅฒ

My Facebook ads campaign failed. ๐Ÿ˜”

Spent $165 on it which got me 28 landing page visits, and 5 new users.

That's a CAC of $33 per user! With no guarantee that they can bring me any CLV.

I'm moving on to other marketing channels for now.

Today I started running Facebook ads for @pricehusky with the following ad creative.

Hoping to get some results but I don't have a good feeling about this. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Today I moved my dashboard from the home page '/' to its own page '/dashboard'.

This is so that I can differentiate between landing page visitors and app users in @PlausibleHQ.

Never thought about this when I was building the app but never too late to change!

I spent the whole of today improving my landing page.

1. Added a "How It Works" section as a product demo.
2. Added a "Testimonials" section to show social proof.

Hope they'll be worth it when I launch on subreddit r/singapore.๐Ÿคž

I added real-time chat to my website in under 2 minutes with @crisp_im. โšก๏ธ

They're the real deal and I strongly recommend them. ๐Ÿ˜

Hello founders, what's your strategy to acquire the first 100 users for your startup? I'm keen to know ๐Ÿ˜

#indiehackers #buildinpublic
I launched yesterday and I only got 8 sign-ups. ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

Most of which are just friends supporting. ๐Ÿ˜‚

"Build it and they will come" is a myth. ๐Ÿซค

Now how do I acquire users hmm? ๐Ÿค”

Keeping fingers crossed that the embedded headers in GET request wonโ€™t expire. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Hello makers, what do you think of this Dashboard?

I have no background in UI/UX design and came up with it myself lol.

Done with new footer, Terms of Service, and Privacy Policy pages for @pricehusky! ๐Ÿ˜

Any feedback?

Finally done with authentication stuff like account registration, login, and password reset. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Moving on to Dashboard now! ๐Ÿ’ช

Login with Google done! Up next would be normal login with email and password. ๐Ÿ˜

Hi makers, do you think it's okay to not have email and password login? #buildinpublic
