Hey Indie Hackers. 👋
I'm on my third attempt at building a micro-SaaS. Here's why the first two didn't work out:
svgflipbook.com - got zero customers. People bought the standalone app for a one-time fee, but nobody wants this as a SaaS.
hostedgitea.com - got two customers. I mistook search volume on the term "gitea" as demand for this product. People prefer to self-host Gitea. Content marketing and ads both failed to get sufficient volume.

I'm not ready to launch just yet, but I will let you know how it goes.
Thanks for reading 🙏 and shouts out to my ClojureScript folks!
