It's been a while since I've posted anything but I am proud to say that tiiny.host is finally in the $500+ MRR club!
I launched Tiiny over 14 months ago but it's only been in the past 4 months that I've seen real, organic growth. This is attributed to SEO work implemented over 9 months ago (yes, SEO takes that long!).
The journey to this point has definitely been slow & gruelling to say the least but I am very glad that I didn't give up on it too soon.
What's the most surprising thing? I've realised that my original hypothesis for why Tiiny Host should exist was correct - there really are customers out there that just want a really simple tool to quickly host html content.
We actually also hit the 10,000+ sites uploaded milestone recently too!
This was something I was unsure about for at least 9 months into the journey as I considered adding advanced features or turning it into website builder but I restrained myself from adding more code (more so because I was lazy 😂). It turns out that I really just needed to find the right marketing channels for the product I already built.
It's definitely not been easy to work on Tiiny Host through these difficult times. I've often lacked the drive to invest the same amount of energy as pre-covid times, even though I have more time on my hands(you're not alone if you feel the same). However, that's the beauty of a side/indie project. You're allowed to work on it at your own pace.
Onwards to making more mistakes, more lessons and the $1k MRR mark!
