Got my first 600$/month revenue!!

Anna Grigoryan @annadante

I started my journey as a blogger on August 20th, 2019. It's been a long term journey of mine to start a page where I share my experience and knowledge with detailed step-by-step guides.

During the past 4 months I've gained:

  • 23 subscribers,
  • 200 MAU,
  • 12% retention rate,
  • published 21 articles (as of now 1 more is on the way),
  • got my first paying customer.

I've niched down my content to product analytics and growth, and again rebranded my blog to "Growth Engineering".

Also, I got my first payment as indie hacker and blogger for 1 month of consultation - 600$. Yoohoo!!!!

This was a strange and rollercoaster year, however, I'm very happy and with the journey, I had so far. Looking forward to the rest.

    Well done! Getting one's first paying customer really makes a business feel real rather than just being another side project you are trying to make work. It is a great feeling! Good luck moving forward!

      yes it is! I can't count how many times I thought that it's not worth the time, but now it's pretty real!!
