To be honest, this whole Indie Startup thing is a freakin' rollercoaster. We went for three weeks without a paid customer. We thought we had it, probably like a lot of us do. I mean, 200 beta users gave us their emails, shouldn't we get a least 2 or 3 paying customers? It doesn't work like that.
It all changed with our accidental Product Hunt launch. We weren't prepared at all. Some guide on some Facebook group hunted our product, and, before we knew it, we were 6th on Product Hunt getting 10+ signups every hour.
We quickly made a promo code available in on Product Hunt, but no one used it, to our surprise.
We got 150+ signups from this launch.
Anyway, here we are today, amidst this crisis, with $200 MRR, with some of our free users becoming paid users!
