150th user signed up!

Supun Kavinda @SupunKavinda

Hyvor Groups (groups.hyvor.com) is a community website like indie hackers but more general. Users are allowed to create any group on any topic. Today, the 150th user signed up!

How we got 150 users:

  • We officially released Hyvor Groups in August.
  • We didn't spend more than $10 for online advertising. I realized that spending a little amount of money (I used to spend $1 per day on Facebook) doesn't do much. So, I focused on SEO and guest blogging.
  • One most important thing about building communities is each and every user must feel they are special in a community.
  • With that sense, we now have 150 users.
  • $50/month revenue with advertising
  • And, 10,000 page views per month.

Thank you.

    Looks like more of a developer-centric community as of now. I think growing it as such can work wonders for you, rather than welcoming everyone in. Just my thoughts :)

      Thank you, but we have already decided to welcome anyone. At the moment, most of the public groups are developer-centric. However, there are several private groups (invite only). Also, some adult groups (hidden in internal search, but can be found on Google search) ;)
