I've been an indie hacker since September 2018, when I quit my job.
Since then I've read all the bizness books, built a bunch of apps, sites, landing pages, did several hard pivots, interviewed a bunch of "customers", and experimentd with all the social platforms. Here's a little history on what I've done. AMA
I started in September 2018 building consumer products.
I built a SMS based budgeting app that became an iPhone app and went nowhere and I eventually removed it from the App store in 2020.
I then made a social music app called Tastephone. I basically jsut use it with a couple friends. I built an IG audience for it but never converted anyone to a user. It's still in the app store.
I tried to make an AI based credit card review site. It worked, but even when it told me the card I should get I was like "Nah, I'm not gonna get that card". I built a small IG audience but it never went anywhere and I shut it down.
Then, last May, I decided to start focusing on B2B products.
I interview 1 IT/WiFi industry person and decided to build a backup solution for Unifi based WiFi networks. I didn't verify my hypothesis with anyone before building and when I launched and emailed that 1 person, they never replied
In the fall of 2020. I started interviewing Newsletter Creators and conducted about 50 interviews to date.
After those converstations I made CrowdMagnet to help newsletter creators with cross promotion. It has a small but growing userbase but it's a free product.
And I just released another tool for newsletter creators. It's called TweetSpacer and it's a distraction-free tweet scheduler. It's a paid product but I haven't had any signups yet.
