I’ve chosen three criteria by which you can compare business ideas to start working on them:
- Desire and passion
- Market knowledge
- Skillset
In other words: want, know, can.

Mockups for the website...

Aside from that, I've been cleaning up the codebase because it is still really messy from when I was running EC2/SQLite. Need to change some basic bits on all the endpoints to account for the Aurora Data API. #indiehacker
What pricing model is better for a startup SaaS?

1. Monthly: $20/month
2. Percentage: 20% of each sale

Side projects are great to work on since they let you tackle new and different problems. It can be tough to find time to work on them but breaking it up into smaller tasks makes it so much easier.

I love an early-stage startup because you make a decision standing in a smoking room after lunch that can affect the next ten years of your life

#IndieHackers that #buildinpublic, would you say that it is slowly becoming "Copy in Public"?

Asking since I had a conversation with another #IndieHacker, and he was telling me how more and more people are simply copying products...

Is building personal health and productivity habits can be considered as building business processes for indie makers who work as single-man-business?

What business could an indie hacker start that actually thrives and grows in a recession?

Core functionality is built. Some responsive adjustments are needed and I still need to build the subscription management end of things- leveraging @stripe of course.

Onward! #buildinpublic #indiehacker

May has been a decent month for @taskrobin

Main focus for June: marketing and UX

If you are !web design expert, easy solution is to buy a decent template. However templates integrate many 3rd party JS, CSS, Images - that Google hates your pages.

Hi, check out my first product, a minimalist time blocking app called Timeist. I redesign the landing page.
#indiehacker #buildinpublic
Two months in the making: indie.io has its first blog 🎉

Indie’s a little rough around the edges 🏗 and not quite ready for beta users, but it’s alive!

I keep telling myself, one day... one day someone will subscribe to the other two packages

#indiehacker #buildinpublic
In just a few days, I'm launching @Neoniva_. My goals in the first 3 months:

- 20,000 signups (50% MAU)
- $20,000 contest revenue (only 2% profit)
- 10 premium plan purchases
- 3 very successful contests (> 5,000 entrants)

#BuildInPublic #indiehacker
Added all my startups. At $6,413 MRR now. This updates every 30 mins.

That graph is net revenue. Being an indie takes a long time. Don’t give up, keep shipping.

I'm currently diving into @figma plugins and their API for @widgetwhale. Basically, it should be just a plugin for pairing with the web app and adding widgets to it.

Let's see where it goes today! 🥸

#buildinpublic #webdev #indiehacker
Spending the day with typings for the @figma API so it’s easier to use the data for @widgetwhale. 👀

I think I’m nearly done. 😄🎉

#buildinpublic #indiehacker #saas #webdev
Finally got back at building something which is (IMO) fun and 🔥. Will be sure to see it through this time.

Spend 2 days deciding on tech stack only to scrap everything and go basic ✅✅✅
