Welcome to Indie Hackers! (Week of May 23rd)

Channing here from Indie Hackers. Welcome! 👋

Here's how to get the most out your time here.

Make the community a better place

Indie Hackers is for connecting with like-minded people who want to build profitable online businesses.

To get the most out of the community, try helping to make it a better place. You can do that by starting and participating in interesting discussions.

If you start by giving, the community is designed to reward you in return.

How to start discussions

Head over to the home page and click the "New Post" button.

If there's something on your mind that you think will get people talking, simply type it out. The shorter the better. It helps if you ask a clear question in the title, or if you express your opinion.

Alternatively, if you read something elsewhere on the internet, you can start a discussion around that, too. Try submitting it as a link post. Indie hackers love discovering interesting new articles.

Good luck!

This is just the tip of the iceberg. If you need help submitting your first link post or starting your first discussion, let me know in the comments below.

Otherwise, I'm excited to see you the forum! Feel free to introduce yourself to everyone below. 🤗

    I started my project because I wanted a better, safer way to share baby photos with my extended family. Eventually that grew into "Let's build a whole new social network with end-to-end encryption!"

    I'm a security & privacy research guy trying out entrepreneurship and software engineering for the first time. So far it's been a lot of fun.

    The app is https://kombuchaprivacy.com/circles/ . It's in beta now, aiming for general availability on the iOS App Store by the end of summer.

    It will be open source, too, just as soon as I can get it cleaned up enough so that it's not too embarassing.

    Hey everyone!

    My name is Keenan and I created a digital product for video editors to help streamline their editing process and save them time. I also built the website completely by myself without any prior web design knowledge or experience.

    Here is the website! https://dropcuts.co

    It unfortunately didn't do as well as I had hoped to (issues with the marketing team, product analysis etc..), but I learnt a tonne in the process about starting a company and creating something new.

    I am here to hear about other stories, success or failures, and learn as much as I can about building a business/start-up before I go on and try my hand at another.

    Great to meet you all.

    Hey, Community My name is Angelo.

    Somewhere along the way, someone told me I was special, and I believed it. One day life asked me to come down from the clouds and claim my seat in "the way things have always been".

    Within moments of sitting, I realized that I had been tricked, and for a while, I would be indefinitely confined to "the way things have always been."

    While there, I met a great many people who had never glimpsed into the clouds before. I would tell them its stories. Stories about how in the clouds one could truly be free. Few believed me, but most scoffed and decided they much rather sit in "the way things have always been."

    Time passed until one day, I began meeting people who had seen the clouds like me and, too, were afraid of going back to "the way things have always been."

    Word then arrived to us that there were these games. Games that, if successfully mastered and played with the right combination of people, could take us to live in the clouds forever, and we'd never have to go back to "the way things have always been."

    As I began to play, it became apparent that I was good at the part of the game where players have to grow things and make them better than they were before.

    For this reason, I help leaders take a peek into the cloud of possibility for their brands, products, and services and extract actionable strategies to: Attract More Customers, Increase Sales, Improve Brand Impact, Develop Successful Products, and Open Uncontested Market Space.


    Like many of you, I too never want to go back to "the way things have always been" and wish I had a dollar for every time a teacher told me to take my head out of the clouds. I later discovered that this was my greatest strength and that every advancement in business history has come from big thinkers that could stick their heads in the clouds for a bit, imagine the possibilities, and then bring that vision down to the real world.

    More than raw creativity, I've amalgamated what I believe to be my "Secret Sauce" from an unrelenting journey exploring over 300+ books and dozens of training with the top 1% in the fields of direct response marketing, advertising, user design, consumer psychology, product development, branding, copywriting, sales and more.


    In my experience, I've realized four critical problems hold teams back from implementing strategies that capture mass adoption by the market:

    1.) We struggle to consider our own biases about consumer needs.

    2.) We struggle to prioritize value and build possible benefits/experiences that serve the customer instead of giving into stakeholders' competing motivations.

    3.) We struggle to achieve project expectations because "earliest to market syndrome" gets in the way of sound judgment.

    4.) We struggle to cope with the fear of doing something that has never been done before.


    WHY I'M HERE on Indie Hackers:

    I've joined this community for 2 reasons:

    1.) To contribute tips, processes, secrets, blueprints, and strategies to entrepreneurs that are doing something special.

    2.) To leverage my "Secret Sauce" of processes, blueprints, and strategies towards creating wildly profitable projects/ventures with Entrepreneurs on Indie Hackers that want to team up.

    I've had a few conversations already with members on IH and it's been all love.

    If you want to talk, I'm always down for a quick chat. You can either

    A. ) Go to my profile and right-click the email link (copy the address into your browser). Set a time and let's talk.


    B.) Go to www. angelovagas .com


    P.S. "The clouds" are the spirit of abundance and freedom. The child-like ambition that makes us limitless creators.

    "The way things always have been" is the criticism of doubters and existences of mediocrity which are reinforced by the status-quo of society and our industries.

    "The games" are the act of entrepreneurship and creating highly valuable businesses, brands, products, services and organizations.

    Hey there!

    I'm Prashik, so excited to be here as a part of this amazing Indie Hackers community :)

    Currently working on my side project and the goal is to build a platform for independent writers where they get exposure to show their work.

    I'm very excited for upcoming days of sharing ideas, learnings, thoughts and to engage with community.

    Hi Channing,
    thanks a lot for starting Indie Hackers! I hope this is the section to post my goal.

    My goal is to build a website that people really use and that solves a problem.
    In 2014 I developed a search engine / aggregator for hackathons over the weekend. The site was poorly programmed and barely worked except for the core value of finding hackathons near you. Even so, some people used the site regularly and told their friends about it. I've done a lot of things over the years (raised venture capital, enterprise sales for big companies, learned to program), but somehow I've never been as happy as when a few people used the website that I programmed.

    Now I want to build a website again and it's kind of like stack overflow for no-coders. I'm not sure what the site looks like yet, but I want to build it publicly.

    Here, I find the community super exciting. There are people here who want to build things to solve problems and not just people who want to get rich quick. I want to give back as much as I can and also help. Therefore, if anyone has a question about No-Code / Bubble or anything related to Internet startup, I'm always happy to help.

    Best from Berlin,
