Turning your MVP into a profitable micro startups

Fajar Siddiq 👨🏻‍💻🇸🇬🏝️ @fajarsiddiq

So I created a discussion group here at IH you can join if you are building your micro startups and your other or next micro-x's. The ultimate goal is to learn from other founders who are building an MVP and turning it into profitable. Join here: https://www.indiehackers.com/group/microstartups

I also look for articles and community about micro startups.
I don't want to build a project that costs so much and save time.
I like the idea of bootstrapped + independent on my projects.
Building one small feature as a minimum viable product will be good to validate. What's your MVP? join the chat here at https://t.me/microstartups

I found some ways to tweak things online and keep it organized & categorize while doing my side projects and also turning it into a profitable business. https://fajarsiddiq.com/microstartups place where I put my domain and things I have to complete it soon.

I like to keep it short sharp and simple. I have my other businesses to grow and also things I learnt. Also, I like to share things what I do and information that is useful to others and nothing beats consistency and growth.

I saw this pattern for 2 years and is not something it should be.
It should be redirecting me to "Marie-kondo" everything.
As it gets overwhelmed, I want to micro-manage everything.

I just name it "micro-x" or "micro everything".
Things should be simple and effective.

I wrote a short article to get a glimpse of it

    You could start a micro-movement around this, you know I love the concept of create features as small/micro projects, I think it's the best way to easily validate ;)

    1. 2

      yes micro movement is what it is, is a great culture + easiest way to validate for sure. I agree. Best things come in small packages

    Just joined! I struggle with launching any of my products because I feel like they have to lead to a huge startup... Switching my mindset to Micro might help me be okay with launching more small things often.

    1. 1

      yes, getting the right mindset of doing things better is what it is.
      It helps me too. One at a time, you will get it done. You got this!

  5. 2

    Probably a month away from having an MVP.. so maybe not that micro? Looking forward to the group

    Great idea, Fajar. Recently, I've build a super simple nano-app for myself and friends with only one power feature -- interval reminding. Don't even thought about making it public before I read your post.

    1. 1

      Thank you so much for dropping by. That is great one power feature. 💯
      hope is ready to share it to public soon

    Just joined, cool idea! I'm about to complete a side project in the e-commerce automation space that I've been working on for the last few weeks too, though I'm not sure if that would count as a micro-startup

    1. 2
