Hey Indie Hackers —
A few months ago I released a self-published technical ebook (my first), which I promoted mostly through my Twitter audience. That book made almost $80K in sales in its first 4 months, which I attribute mostly to my audience (some bought it themselves, some helped spread the word of mouth, etc).
I've been getting plenty of questions recently about how someone can go build an audience on Twitter from scratch, so I decided to put everything I learned into a short video course.
My background is in programming (ex Amazon), and until recently I had absolutely no social media experience. But when I left my job to work for myself in early 2019, I realized that I was unknown to the rest of the world, and I became determined to try to emerge from obscurity.
After a lot of mistakes, I stumbled on an approach that worked really well for people like me, for whom self-promotion doesn't come naturally. Over the last 14 months, I managed to grow my Twitter account to 24,000 followers, and now I believe my audience is likely my biggest asset.
Now, I've put everything I learned into this course, which unlike almost everything else out there, is not targeted to marketers and hustlers, but to makers and builders like us. I'd be honored if you checked it out. (Full refund if you don't get any value out of this. No questions asked.)
PS. I announced this 4 hours ago on Twitter and to my mailing list (880 subs), and it already sold 100 copies for $6,358 in revenue.
