I'll be buying ONLY indie hackers SaaS. Drop me a link to your product!

Hey guys, I'd like to support indie-hackers building their own apps so I've decided to buy every product that I need from indie hackers, as opposed to from bigger companies.

  • I've set a cap of $300 month overall, and no, I'm not rich.
  • If your product fits my needs, I'll buy it and I'll keep my membership as long as I need it.

UPDATE. Apps I've bought so far (not necessarily today):

  • nesslabs.com by @anthilemoon
    Love Anne-Laure's articles (and youtube videos, recently) and I'm looking forward to learn and participate more in this community.

  • page2api.com by @nyku
    Fantastic web scrapper, affordable, well-written documentation.

  • dorik.io by @mizan
    Awesome page builder, I got it when it was still on beta and super happy about how good it keeps on getting.

  • seocopy.ai by @richiemcilroy
    One of the best AI blog post writers I've used. Totally worth it.

  • katlinks.io by @RobertoDigital
    Great alternative to the more expensive SEO tools out there. Looking great so far.

  • tweethunter.io by @tomjacquesson and @tbll75
    Yes, I need to work on my twitter presence and this will certainly be super helpful!

    What are you needs / what is your product?

    That would help people understand if their SaaS is useful to you.

    1. 1

      Great question! My product is timeivy.com. My needs are similar to most of the other indie hackers, I still need a few things such as customer feedback collection, analytics, email marketing, marketing tools, transactional emails, etc.

      PS. I didn't want to include an exhaustive list, since that way I could also discover other great products :)

    Check out our privacy-friendly and cookie-free web analytics: https://pirsch.io/ We will roll out an update today, extending the free trail to 60 days!

        Thanks! Your website looks fantastic! I really like the colors and how clear everything is :)

      Versoly is simply awesome. I already built my website (for now) but I'll definitely consider it for the near future, particularly because it has blog capabilities.

    If you need a social media scheduling platform - try Pallyy.

    Hey! You may find interesting my time-tracker for ambitious folks at increaser.org 😊

    I built BugFeedr to collect user feedback: https://www.bugfeedr.com/

    It's a super simple form that you can either embed on your site or simply link to the form. Users can then submit feedback and you can push the ticket to a 3rd party bug tracking system or simply respond to the customer and deal with the issue/request.

    I use it across all my SaaS projects and it's been helpful, it's nice because the end user doesn't have to create an account and you can be notified instantly or daily whenever a submission is made.

    It's not intended to be a bug tracking system that developers would use, it's simply a feedback collection tool.

    Feel free to check out all my other projects here: https://sunshine.social/MicahIverson

    I love this, everyone should be eating our own common dog food here. I have bookmarked a number of IH-SaaS products. We need a "buy IH SaaS" products campaign. Someone looking for a good build idea - create a verified IH SaaS directory. Track internal sales and which IH member bought the most etc. Make it run in a circle...

  11. 1

    Really cool that you're doing this.

    If you need business data, I think our Secretary of State API is pretty great. Query any business information that's registered with the Secretary of State and you only pay for what you use.

    Give Basch.io a look! We're making videos easier, put a script and get a whole video generated, edit it, change templates, etc.

    Happy to show you around it!

    1. 1

      Such a cool idea! Really curious how this works. Your landing page video is superb too, btw.

    Hi, checkout https://privateequitylist.com/search.
    Nearly 5000+ PE/VC/Angel investors in an database with filters
    to sort region, industry, equality/minority support and etc. with key investment team people and their contacts without irrelevant information such as news, analytics and etc. (for which PitchBook, Crunchbase and etc. charge much more).

    1. 2

      This is an interesting one, for sure. I don't have a specific need for it right now (ie. not looking for investment), but I bookmarked it already. Who knows the future, right?

    Hi, my co-founder and I have built a Free and better version of Calendly with social effects infused in it. If you are looking to automate scheduling, you can check it out here at - zcal.co.

        I just checked with the backend team. A migration is taking place which should be completed today. That's why you can't find a URL there.

        I would update you when it's up.

        Thank you for pointing this out. I would check to know why as soon as possible. It's not supposed to be broken. Brb

      The fact that you can publish to social media is a killer feature. I'll save this one for when I have a better marketing strategy and more time to publish regularly. Keep it up!

      PS. Props for pushing that update!

      Handy tool, specially these days when no-code / low-code is growing a lot. I don't have a use for it atm, but I see a lot of individual users / companies needing this.

      Have you ever considered going open source (even if with a community version)? You might reach a much wider audience.
