What will you do today?

  1. 1

    I've been trying to get out of the developer mindset and more into the founder mindset.

    So today, I created a targeted form for market research aimed at developers & indie hackers 😄

    Typeform's free tier is pretty solid.

  2. 1

    🐔 What will you accomplish by end of January?

    4 Projects will be shipped by the end of January

    🐔What did you do yesterday to work toward your goal?

    I finished pulling all of the data from our API to our UI for our progress tracking app

    🐔What will you do today?

    Today I already did some promotion for our 2nd of the month project https://mywifisign.com and got a ton of great feedback on reddits webdev board. Spent all day answering user feedback, it was awesome to see so many people interested.

    Hopefully I can add POST / PUT functionality before I go to sleep tonight on our progress tracker

    What will you accomplish by end of January?

    • You are putting me on the spot here.

    What did you do yesterday to work toward your goal?

    • Sat down, thought for a long time, and jotted down my target audience and value propositions. Also calculated the costs of for running this new business idea.

    What will you do today?

    • Make a list of +100 people and/or companies that could potentially be early adopter.s

    Yesterday:

    I worked on getting article support into AvoToast. I'm really excited to get articles into the app so I can share tips and tricks with all my users more easily to help them with their weight loss.

    Today:

    working on pricing improvements. I want users to be able to prepay for their entire weight loss journey, as a form of commitment to themselves. I find when I put money down on something, I'm more likely to follow through.

    By the end of January:

    Launch payments and a handful of bug fixes and feature improvements. And get ready to show off AvoToast at the Indie Hackers LA Meetup hopefully!

  5. 1

    Trying to trim down the Album Daily newsletter so that I can get accurate open/click rates. Mailchimp seems to add a ton of junk to the emails.

  6. 1

    By the end of Jan:

    2 more paying customers and integrating all the feedback from user testing into the product

    Yesterday:

    Distilled several interviews of feedback into action items for the product

    Today:

    Did one more customer interview which actually resulted in an unexpected conversion! (they don't always)

  7. 1

    What will you accomplish by end of January?

    Another paying customer 🎉 I have 1, maybe 2 on the line. Content marketing will bring in some more but they might not convert before the year-end.

    What did you do yesterday to work toward your goal?

    I finished my huge guide on 20 growth tactics on Instagram that work in 2020. It's almost 5,000 words long and is a culmination of years of experience on Instagram.

    What will you do today?

    Promote the guide like crazy 😋

  8. 1

    What will you accomplish by end of January?

    • Have my project complete enough to begin work on a landing page

    What did you do yesterday to work toward your goal?

    • Fixed minor bug

    • Began the last feature I want before I consider project complete enough to call ready

    What will you do today?

    • Work on final feature

    • Research landing page

      7:15PM ET

      RescueTime statistics: 5h 45m (35% productive)

      Didn't block out other applications using RescueTime / FocusTime, and felt kind of burned out today. Didn't really get much done, except for part of the preliminary product dev docs for TinyDevCRM. I'll see how much more I can finish tonight.
