Ask IH: How does one build up a personal brand (aka fame, influence, media capital) from square one?
Perhaps it’s impostor syndrome or something like that, but… I’m seeing all those $2k/mo, $50k/mo, $300k/mo indie hackers, and I can’t help but feel that with my measly sub-$100/mo sales lately, I simply don’t fit in. I’m not in position to give any advice or contribute in any meaningful way. I have an IH Stories interview scheduled, but there’s this dreadful feeling that I don’t deserve it. It feels like by IH terms I should declare my project a failure and move on, but I can’t — people love it, people use it, people have bought the app, and I believe there’s huge potential there. I keep telling myself that maybe things will improve when I change the pricing and make it subscription-first and do more marketing too — I still have some runway for that. But at moments like this it feels like maybe I’m just wasting time.
