Recently I launched SaaS Forge, the Python SaaS boilerplate and now it's time for selling it (please don't tell me that I had to sell it before I create it, I would probably agree but it's too late :-\ anyway).
It's not an easy process and the content marketing has never been fun for me. So, I decided to try something different: instead of writing SEO-appealing but stupid articles like "18 ways to do blah" I want to create a real use case for the boilerplate and tell indiehackers how it's going in the real time.
It means that every day around 9:30pm (when I usually finish working at the computer) I will post the next report about what's done, how much time I spend, which problems I faced etc. If everything goes well (at least I would able to finish the project) I'm going to create a separate post describing this use case. (Note: it's going to be a side project).
Now, the question is - if this is an interesting idea for you, indie hackers? If so, what type of content you would prefer to see?
Currently, I see only one type: text with pictures but maybe you have better ideas. For example, it could be a compilation from screencasts but I'm not sure if this format is good (and how to do that, but I can know :).
The next question is what I'm going to build. After some researching and listening to my inner voice (I rely a lot on it :) I decided to create a service for collecting feedback. I know there are a lot of players on the market (like Nolt, UserVoice, and others) but the market itself is huge and I believe there is enough room for everyone. Also, this time I have a marketing plan. I'm not going to sell it before I build it but at least I know what to do as soon as I have an MVP.
I had several criteria:
I'm going to build a super-flexible, super-easy-to-use SaaS that would allow to create and run your own feedback collecting board in 5 minutes. Also, it should allow you to perform the simple analysis of collected data and have several views to show them. (So, as you can see it's kind of MPV because I have tons of other ideas but they are beyond MVP - let's see how it goes, I'm going to implement them if it goes well :).
That's it for now :) Stay tuned :)))))
