I am thoroughly enjoying this side project that I started a little over 4 months ago.
2 months back I hit #1 on Product Hunt and there was a huge spike in traffic averaging 1k a day for over a week. as expected though, this traffic dwindled down to around 100 a day over the next couple months. This is mostly due to not engaging with my users in any way or form.
I am still manually sourcing all my ideas on Twitter and I do enjoy the process.
I am genuinely fascinated by the problems people have and publicly post about that have commercial potential if solved and executed on properly.
I'm so fascinated by it that I want to make "problems" my entire niche. I want to develop a brand around sourcing, identifying and solving problems. I want to expand on what I have started with this blog and I eventually want to make an income doing so.
I have toyed around with the idea of starting a podcast or even a youtube channel. Where I actively seek out and talk with professionals in everyday jobs and ask them what problems they face on a day to day basis and open a discussion around how those problems could be solved and what business opportunities may be born from those solutions.
I would love to hear the communities thoughts on this.
