Share your answer below!

For me:

  1. A time-tracking app to help people find work-life balance.
  2. Android Studio and Firebase.
  3. I looked for beta users on Indiehackers & Betafamily.

However, I found it difficult for my app to differentiate from other existing products. So I've paused working on this project and started a new one.

Currently, I'm working on Start of Startup
If you're interested in sharing your story on it, please let me know!

    1. A software that removes your personal information from the internet
    2. Ruby on Rails
    3. Mainly content marketing

    Take a look!

    1. 3

      Love the idea of protecting personal info via your services!
      Do you use Ruby on Rails for sending opt-out mails automatically?

      1. 2

        Thanks!! The automated opt-out process is our secret sauce, but the user-facing application is in Rails 😀

    2. 1

      that sounds like a very useful software. How thorough is it though? and does it scour the darkweb too?

  2. 4

    Currently, I'm working on Start of Startup
    I'm trying to summarize some basic knowledge about building a great product.
    From idea validation, coding, designing, to marketing...
    I'm also doing some case studies.
    If anyone is interested in sharing the story of your project, I'm happy to write about it and help you promote your project!

    2. ReactJs, AWS Amplify, Rails
    3. I write fun memes on my twitter
  4. 3
    1. A dev tool that helps people build React apps 10x faster
    2. Powered by Next.js, Firebase, and Vercel
    3. Got early traction from twitter and my site usehooks.com (recently acquired). Now mostly from Google and word of mouth.
    1. 2

      Divjoy is amazing!
      Setting up various frameworks is really time-consuming.
      Thanks for making such a tool!

      1. 1

        Thanks, glad you like it 😀

  5. 3
    1. A tool that collects people's problems from Reddit(for now). So, it helps me(and others) finding potential pains to solve.
    2. Node.JS/Typescript/MongoDB.
    3. Mostly on Reddit(I compile the issues in the newsletter and show the posts). I also share the journey on Twitter and here.
    1. 2

      I've seen your tools via comment in other post previously!
      Looks really helpful to find real problems that people are asking for.
      Just subscribed your newsletter!
      Will love to hear more about your journey.

      1. 1

        Thanks for taking a look!

    1.) https://pandapixel.co creates beautiful high converting web experiences for small businesses. Completely done for you and with unlimited support for site updates.

    Drag and drop web builders are tricky to use. Unless you are a designer it is hard to make a world-class beautiful website. Updating your site with new information can be difficult and time-consuming. If you choose to hire a web design agency, this can be very costly. They will charge you every time you want to make a small change.

    2.) Wordpress

    3.) Cold email prospecting, referrals, Facebook ads, Google Ads

    I am building Spotter - a crm focused on privacy and building long term relationships.

    1. Lack of actual human connection with prospects
    2. Next / GraphQL / MongoDB - deployed on Netlify + Functions
    3. Have not done any product promotion or audience building yet.

    Im solving a personal itch here first, in that most CRM tools are too overkill for what I as a single founder need. Like all early stage products, it also has a few kinks that I am working out - but I plan to launch before I am fully ready. If its ready, I have waited too long 😅

    1. 2

      A Privacy Tool? Awesome! I don't see any 'contact us' section though, Would love to work with you sometime.

      1. 1

        Yea the landing page is pretty light - I'll add a contact us page this week!

        1. 2

          hey man, I'm doing a twitch stream for privacy tools, can I feature yours?

          1. 1

            @davidskg Absolutely! Can I coordinate this with you in a week so I can get that contact page added? 😁

            1. 1

              No worries, take your time. I'm hyped up about this, I think so is wilson :D

    2. 1

      I tried to sign up, and I couldn't. Let me know when you launch.

      1. 1

        @wilsonbright 🙈 code error - prevented anyone from putting anything in the input field. Fixed! 🙏🏼 thanks for the find.

      2. 1

        @wilsonbright 😅 I'll look into that. Probably need better error handling. Thanks for letting me know!

    1. Managed S3 that allows you to easily share file uploads or downloads and embed within your app. https://prodtype.com/managed-s3
    2. Next.js, Node.js, AWS
    3. Twitter, Indiehackers, microconf and LinkedIn
  9. 2

    Problem: It's surprisingly hard for new customers to contact small businesses and solopreneurs.

    Solution: Let customers video call you from your website to the App in your pocket. Or send a text message, or schedule a meeting. Product is at www.ContactLink.com

    Tech Stack: Lots of Twilio, some .NET and Azure.

    Promote: Have been using outbound call/mail to local businesses in my city and state. That has gotten more traction than promoting online, at least at first.

  10. 2
    1. Building a toolkit for Digital Marketers and Keyword Research.
    2. NextJS, Serverless, AWS Sagemaker for machine learning models.
    3. Explored the interest by talking to the target customers.

    2. React app built using Typescript and a node.is backend

    3. Places like indie hackers / other startup communities

      Hello! A Privacy-focused CRM looks awesome! I never thought something like this would work. Would love to have a chat with you sometime!

    2. 1

      Like the network graph!
      What's your strategy to compete with Notion?

      1. 1

        Thanks!

        In a nutshell, Notabase has a different purpose than Notion.

        Notion has built a product that excels as an "all-in-one workspace" -- something you can use to build apps and websites, manage your projects, and collaborate with other people.

        However, Notabase is focused on empowering your personal thinking. It wants to be the space for your deep thinking + writing by helping you form new ideas and connect your knowledge together. Every feature in Notabase is focused on this goal: bidirectional note links, graph view, page stacking, etc.

        I actually think there's room for people to use both Notion and Notabase, so we're not strictly direct competitors.

        1. 1

          Do you believe that this usage of affiliate links is compliant with affiliate programs?

          1. 1

            It depends on how we are planning to show the link, it's not there yet. We are still figuring what will be the best user experience.

  14. 2
    1. What problem are you trying to solve with your product?

    Here's the link to The Psych Handbook

        NFT has great future I believe. I have deployment scheduled next week. I will let you know when it's ready :) You can also follow me on Twitter, I'm going to write a lot about NFT anyway.

    2. HTML / JS / CSS
    3. I start to write this and soon create a video on youtube (https://www.indiehackers.com/post/swipetwitch-first-appearance-in-the-world-fbb074176a)
    1. 1

      Looks cool!
      Using Twitch API to embed it and view it easily via TikTok-like swiping?
      Is there any charge from the Twitch API if your users grow?
      What's the video you create on YouTube?

      1. 1

        Thx!
        No there is no fee for using the API.
        I want to create a video for YouTube in which I will tell you how I came to this idea and tell you an easy roadmap.

    3. Twitter, Reddit, Indie Hackers, Hacker News
    1. 1

      Wow! How do you find high quality resources for 20+ languages?
      How do you evaluate some resources that are involving languages that you are not familiar with?
      Which platform or which type of post worked out best?

      1. 1

        Thanks for asking!

        Many of them have been battle-tested personally by myself.

        For those languages that I'm not familiar with, I evaluate mostly by checking out reviews by other people/students and social presence.

        Twitter, Reddit, and Indie Hackers worked out the best for me. All I did was sharing various milestones and launches types of posts.

        Once I got a couple of buyers, the momentum starts kicking in.

        Hope it helps!

    Apps for work-life balance are a super competitive market. What made you decide to put your project on hold (metrics, customers feedback, personal feeling...)?

    1. The absence of privacy and control over our private data, Telios redefines online privacy!
    2. Powered by react & hypercore protocol
    3. Social media (twitter, IH, PH...) + Blog. I also try to attend networking events.
    1. 2

      It was an early version and I haven't figure out a way to create a big enough benefit for people to keep using it.
      Personally I also found that time-tracking may be a starting stage of reviewing personal work-life balance. But in the long term, it may not be necessary.
      Maybe I'll try other ways to cut into this market in the future!

      Just join the waiting list of Telios!
      End-to-end encryption sounds promising!

      1. 1

        That makes sense. Maybe working around work-life balance as a theme and propose to users a step-by-step process and path to help them achieve better balance. The first step would be time tracking and then moving on the next tool (2nd step).

        Thanks for the support, it is much appreciated! Let me know if you ever have any questions that come in mind.

  48. 1

    I built Workflow app for teamwork, it easy to use https://workos.me/en

  49. 1

    I actually am still in the ideation stage, but here’s what I got so far. Feedback is appreciated!

    1. Many UI kits are over used online for different SaaS and startups and because of this, it’s harder to stand out!
    2. I’m going to build some UI kits using the ever popular utility framework, Tailwind! I plan to create kits that work in Figma, HTML, React, and Vue!
    3. Through content marketing, newsletters, building in public, word of mouth.
    1. 1

      Sounds promising!
      Is there any prototype of some of your UI components to get a glimpse?

      1. 1

        it isn’t final of course. This is one of the most important steps. so I really gotta nail it.

      2. 1

        Just started designing rough mockups in order to find the overall aesthetic actually.
