I promised Twitter I’d be your first paying customer.

    I can imagine how many founders you'd be a huge moral boost to.

      Thanks so much. It's been a blast so far. Just have to get through the list of 50 new products I'm using and give genuine feedback. That'll be the real test here. But the $ I hope is motivating as well!

    This is so timely! I just have posted a comment on another thread about supporters. Would you be so kind to check and tell me what you think? https://www.indiehackers.com/post/how-do-you-support-yourself-while-building-68fa76d881?commentId=-MRg3u0ZgoNxuueQcWIp

    🙅‍♂️CLOSED.

    I'm hoping to do this again sometime! But for now, I have a little over 60 products to go use this month!

    I'll report back on how it all goes and will also have another thread where I give some public feedback.

    Hi Dustin, thank you for this cool initiative! I launched a new blog called Gold Ink (https://goldink-blog.com) which uses writing to trailblaze change. Proudly created from #Africa, its vision is to build a community that challenges thinking, expands awareness, and widens angles of view.

    While I don't get sell digital products, I would love if you could support my writing through my Patreon, even if it is just for a month: https://www.patreon.com/EYK. You will see that I only have two Patreons so far!

    Thank you in advance!

    I'm not on Twitter, unfortunately - I hope I can share the link here? I have 0 paying customers.

    Avoid unnecessary chat by pinning links to Slack channels to field common or repetitive requests.

      If you are building any product, you ought to be on Twitter. Trust me, you wouldn't regret it!

        Oh dear, sounds like a rabbithole I need to get myself down...

        I've been studiously avoiding Twitter up until now for my soul - but if it's the place to be for this sort of business then I can't justify staying away

      Yeah definitely get on Twitter, my friend! I hadn't been active for a few years and picked it back up just a couple months ago I think. I can't believe what I've been missing. It's the ultimate place for makers.

      I'll check our Preactive Chat and will see if it can fit in the budget still! I love Slack apps in general. Seems like this could save people some serious time in medium-large orgs.

        Thanks Dustin! I think you've convinced me to get on Twitter

          Do it! And then let me know so I can follow! 😊
