Soft-launched yesterday, talked to a few customers, and QUICKLY realized my product was way too broad

I narrowed the target audience and now have a really clear goal, which is great

The bad news: I have to completely redo my current product offerings… #tweet100 #buildinpublic
For the first handful of signups for my new product, I’m going focus on engaging on social media

ie reply to tweets, Reddit posts, etc. within my niche to drive traffic

Is this the best strategy? Or should I be focusing on something different?🤔 #tweet100 #buildinpublic
Domain: bought!
Emails and socials: good to go!
Ready for launch? You bet!

Spending the rest of the weekend setting up my admin dashboard, then Monday I start my reply campaign!🚀#tweet100 #buildinpublic
Call me crazy, but I only buy a new domain AFTER I created an MVP for it

It’s not because I have amazing discipline… I’m just cheap! #tweet100 #buildinpublic
A month ago I gave up on my #buildinpublic project and started on a new one. MVP is done (which is crazy to me, thanks @bubble!) but the hard work has only just started

Current challenge: what even is SEO… #tweet100 #nocode
I just added a popup for when my web app has mobile width saying “Oops! This product is best used on desktop”

Mobile optimization can wait! I’m cutting as many corners as possible just to get my product launched #tweet100 #buildinpublic
@marc_louvion Seems so obvious to me, but this is the first time I’ve seen a #buildinpublic project work this way!

Not only is this effective for finding and bashing bugs, but I bet that user will like your product even more (assuming you fix the issue quickly)
This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for the indie community! This corner of twitter is so positive, encouraging, and inspiring🙂

After avoiding it for a few months I finally created an agile board for my side projects.

I liked just doing what I felt like when it came to my projects, but being organized makes me feel way better! #tweet100 #buildinpublic
Most important lesson for building indie projects: time management/ prioritization

There will always, ALWAYS be things you want to do but don't have time for. #tweet100 #buildinpublic
I’m starting to stray from my challenge. It’s nothing crazy, but I’m not as aligned as I was at the start of it

And guess what? I don’t care! I’m having more fun while still learning a lot, which is the whole point of this for me #tweet100 #buildinpublic
I've recently realized the painful truth about how important marketing is.

I used to think that the only challenge was building your projects, but it turns out that building is the EASY part. #tweet100 #buildinpublic
It might not seem like much but it was a big win for me to get my signup/ login page completed today! From start to finish in ~2 hrs

Took a lot of playing with the right Bubble workflows but I'm really happy with the result! #tweet100 #buildinpublic
I have a confession to make: I have spent the last few days chasing a shiny new idea. I had an idea over the weekend and went all in, and have made no progress on notKiwi because of it

Sometimes, focus is the hardest part! #tweet100 #buildinpublic
Goals for notKiwi by next week (this week is all about MVP for me):

- Clean & easy sign-up/ login for users
- "Invite others" feature for rooms (similar to Zoom, hopefully)
- Simple would-you-rather game [maybe]

I've been loving @atomicfusionio since I start using it a couple weeks ago. My productivity on Bubble is easily 10x what it was before—great work, team!

#tweet100 #buildinpublic
I mentioned last week that I was going to join a community, and I've narrowed it down to two: @indie_worldwide & @RamenClubHQ

Q: My product(s) are mostly b2b, is there one community that does that better? #indiehackers #buildinpublic
My favorite bit of copy so far is the subheading on my icebreakers page: "The crème de la crème of questions, hand-picked just for you!"

Thanks for the help, GPT3! I wouldn't have thought of it myself #tweet100 #buildinpublic
I spent over an hour yesterday trying to schedule a Bubble backend workflow. All I wanted was for my icebreakers to be randomized once a day...

I finally found a great @PlanetNoCode video about using cron-jobs and was done in 5 min! #tweet100 #buildinpublic
I've been having so much fun using @OpenAI and GPT3 to build my product! I'm able to generate hundreds of icebreaker questions with ease

And, after some light prompt engineering, the questions are actually pretty good! #tweet100 #buildinpublic
