Hey everyone, I've been an Indie Hackers member for a couple of years, started with zero MRR and finally hit $10K MRR.
TL;DR, I've put together a visual timeline of my journey from zero to $10K MRR here:
It's been quite a slow burn - I started out by trying the "12 startups" challenge and didn't see much success there, but did stumble upon a sense of direction.
Then I focused on one product, but didn't quite have product-market-fit yet.
Then I pivoted that product and gained a bit of traction, and basically doubled down on the things that were working for me. In my case, that was writing more / better documentation.
There have been pricing changes, marketing language changes, and lots of feature updates in the last year. Passed the $10K mark earlier this month.
I thought it would be fun to put together a sort of timeline of events of the last 2 years. For each time period I have summarised what I was doing, with some tweets, blog posts and lessons learned.
If you're growing a startup, I hope you find this useful!
Note: this isn't really meant to be a guide for you to follow, just look at it more as an example journey of a fellow founder :) Some lessons may apply to you, others won't!
