TL;DR: We pivoted, started from complete scratch, launched our MVP, made over
$2,000 in transactional revenue and
$177 in MRR!
And Indie Hackers has been a really important part of our process and our success! I'm so grateful for this platform and for folks like Rosie who are keeping things on-lock around here (and unlocking new users from our bootcamp who can't seem to post!)
I walk through this on my vlog:
In the last ~6 weeks we've gone from effectively nothing to putting both a product (a small mvp) and revenue on the boards! Here's a quick timeline of events:
notionas a "landing page" (super hackey but very cost-effective)! We built it from scratch and I wrote most of it in a single sitting (I share a broader breakdown of what/why here and here).
$299.00for a seat. We made a total of
$1,495.00! Fantastic. We're on the board!
$177.00 in MRR)!
#yenBETAcohort on March 9th (we're literally half-way through the program right now)!
$598.00in transactional revenue.
In 6 very short weeks, we went from ZERO ($0.00) to
$2,093.00 in tx rev and
$177 in mrr!
I've blown away by my small, agile team and how much work (and heart!) we've put into the last 6 or 7 weeks. It's been unreal.
I've been using Product Hunt SHIP too, but, I honestly like
IH so much better, so, I'll be spending more time here than there (and I'll be needing my money back... it's kind of expensive)!
Let me know if you have any questions! I'd love to help! My email is right here!
