I usually do not publish a lot about my projects, but today is an important day.
One year ago, when the pandemic started, I decided to create a Chinese Checkers game online to play with my friends & family. Some players found the website (with a bit of SEO magic on the landing page) and started to play . At this time, the project was buggy, but visitors were interested in trying. In the beginning, I was not even on the third Google page but confident I could make it.
In one year, I got my first customers (premium players) and became more confident about the fact that my ideas are valuable and passive income is achievable with hard work and a bit of luck.
I also stopped listening people saying "If it was valuable, it would already exist" from people who never heard about this game before.
Today, I finally reached 10k users without any advertising, using only word of mouth and Google organic traffic.
So proud to see a 5 figure number for a simple idea I got one year ago!
In one month, the mobile app has been downloaded more than 400 times.
10k does not reflect players interested in exchanging some monetary value but definitely boosts confidence about following ideas to come.
Have a good weekend and keep trying!
