Got lots of nice websites to roast, thanks for sharing them peeps!

I’ve got a bit of a backlog but will make it my task for the next few days.

I love the #buildinpublic community!

Here’s a photo of the Eiffel Tower, our main adventure today. Walked almost 20k steps πŸ’€
πŸ‘‹πŸΌ If you have a public landing page, I’d love to roast it β€” give you honest feedback πŸ”₯

Share your landing’s URL here!

@MrNick_Buzz you’re a roast pro. What are some landing pages I should check out?

(Preferably makers with smaller audiences)

#buildinpublic #indiehackers
@SamNewby_ Hopefully me :)

Making good progress for a launch with basic MVP. Was working on 1 app but pivoted to something I think will resonate well with the #buildinpublic audience.
Are there indies who had full-time / 9-5 jobs but went part-time to support their own products?

Seems like it would be a neat idea: Have a stable cash flow at reduced work hours, and you can focus more deeply on your own work.

Sup indies! Sun's out and it's my last day in the Netherlands, so I'm going to explore some museums and walk lots more.

Will be back this evening to explore integrating @northflank with my products; hoping to find that deploy tool that has most of what I need.

@Jaan Join us in #buildinpublic :D

Also working on my 1st startup. The only way to find out is to ship 🚒
May update 🌞

🌱 Started indie hacking
πŸ‘‹ Met nice people on Twitter

✨ Learned the concepts of biz dev

Indies, what are hobbies you’re starting to pick up? 🌱

Personally, I got into film photography last year. Yesterday I got this small film camera built in 1972, a true relic!

I love old tech, 2nd photo is the viewfinder. Wicked UI!

The cast of Ted Lasso roasted my (upcoming) landing page!

I think I agree with their thoughts...

Did some work + indie dev from the public library today!

The best part: found a way to simplify my development and reduce cognitive overload, allowing me to iterate faster.

Very important when working 9-5. Our limitation welcomes creativity!

A few people have signed up for my waitlist. I want to email them a video of my progress and ask for feedback.

What email messaging/marketing platforms should I look for? Looking for something with a free tier to try before I buy πŸ˜„

I like the idea of having 2+ projects to work on at the same time. Stuck with one? Hop on to the next!

I might do the same after finalizing the demo I’m working on. Could be a fun way to pick a simpler stack to stick with for the long term as well.

@jimmyk2084 I feel it's quite easy to feel behind by the number of talented people you find in the #buildinpublic space. They're shipping super fast, I'm going slow like a snail.

One day at a time though 🌱
@jimmyk2084 I’ve got a partner too, and work full time. I definitely feel we have to make time for everything and everyone we care about, so that might mean taking it slow with the #buildinpublic work, one day at a time.

At least that’s what I’m trying to do :)
I've been tweaking my site copy and talking to potential clients. A few people have joined the waitlist, so I'm pushing the demo further 🌱

Had some trouble with the auth steps and trying to hide non-public pages from the crowd, but nothing that can't be fixed!

Domain = acquired
Analytics = connected
Site = launched
DNS = sorted
SEO thumbnails = not loading yet

Waiting for a bit more web propagation before sharing it here :)

Off to sleep!

Finding a domain has proven difficult. I may have to pivot my branding a bit due to the competitive market, and 1 domain having a very similar name.Any advice to a first-time founder would be greatly appreciated!

I almost have my landing page ready for a first roast/iteration. Unsure if I should share it here as an image, or try to publish the app online?

Mainly worried about the potential drawbacks involved with sharing just an image but no link.

Good morning hackers! It’s 5am for me and no, I’m not grinding, but on my way to the airport πŸ˜…

What are you all doing today? I’m going to create a form to collect emails on my landing page while the product gets built, and polish the landing more. #buildinpublic #indiehackers
What type of validation do you look for with landing pages? #buildinpublic

I'm currently building a product, have spoken to a few potential clients for pains, testing basic UX with some.

But I don't know much about marketing. Should I release a landing and collect emails?
