Temirlan Nugmanov @optemization

Optemization hit over $50k in revenue in 8 months:

  • Consulting (fulfilled): $36,130.28
  • Consulting (unfullfiled): $11674.75
  • Digital products: $4,292.98

The most important acquisition channel has been Twitter (growth captured in image) but I started a newsletter, which currently has 1,899 subscribers.

Tomorrow, I'll send a brief tactical newsletter on our #nocode tech stack, workflow, and templates: https://digitalops.substack.com

    Hey @optemization congratulations on the new milestone. I've been following you here on IH and on No Code Founders slack group, I like how you are active and sharing the journey all the way. It's great to see the determination and consistency going on which I personally believe is critical in making a service/product work.

      Hey Hi! Thank you for following. Yes "building in public" has been a very good activity for reflection (connecting to strategy) AND for marketing/sales/growth.

        It's interesting you mention about marketing/sales/growth. How much has building in public helped with sales?

          I haven't yet rounded up the data to highlight explicit relationships but all I know is that the more I post stuff, the more sales I get :)

          duh, lol

    Congrats!

    How do you balance consulting and products?

    1. 1

      Hiring a co-worker / collaborators was KEY! I had no time prior but when I narrowed down on a group of reliable folks and got comfortable with them crushing client work, I had more time to ship products.

      @a2savior in particular, joined full-time and worked extra super hard on the products too (besides client stuff). Building a team of the right teammates CHANGES EVERYTHING
