Lost 40 days of work and I'm the only one to blame.
So, like the title says.
I would like to build products that can be useful to others, and to help others you need to learn what they struggle with, but lets say I already have a problem in mind that a group of people tend to have, how do i go about making a product for them and get them to use it when i have no way of communicating with them without coming off as spam?
for example, I've been working on a service for podcast creators - till my recent fu$kup: https://www.indiehackers.com/post/lost-40-days-of-work-and-im-the-only-one-to-blame-cbf3faeacc - and the way i was going to market it was that i'd finish the service completely first and have it all setup, then reach out to podcasters one by one through email or twitter.
Now that i'm building it again from scratch, what would be the best way of doing it right this time.
1- Do it the same way and finish the product first.
2a - Reach out to podcasters now and see if they'd be interested in such product.
2b - Create a landing page first and then send it to podcasters.
3- Create a landing page, post it on product hunt to gather interest, finish product and then contact podcasters.
4- <<YOUR SUGGESTION HERE>>.
Any suggestions are appreciated and i'd love to hear what you think.
