I've been on the indie hacker grind all this year. I've made three other products with zip to show for them:
And now, Just Launched which I spent two days on already has earned me $40!
Congrats!!! No idea how your building that fast but your doing awesome!
Thanks! Portabella truly outweighs the others in terms of effort.
Howtoxwithy represents maybe 2 days all up. DeveloperMinute was two hours maybe. This latest one, Just Launched, was also about two days.
Actually depressing when I look at the time sunk into Portabella, 30 upvotes on PH for that compared to ~80 for howtoxwithy and ~130 for Just Launched
Great reminder that effort does not correlate to traction in the market! I’m so often sucked in to thinking that the harder I work on something, the better reception it’ll get—your projects here is proof that isn’t true at all 🙃
I remember my first real money I made online, I was making logos on 99designs and I won my first contest (I created logos and entered 63 contests without winning anything before that ). It was so exciting! 😊
Hi Alex , Congratulations with your launch ! I can relate to you since this week i sold my first service online too and it felt awesome!🥳
Just to let you know that i tried your service and it worked like a charm , my product should be in the wait list now 😍. There's only one suggestion that i can make to you :) Once that i've decide to not skip the waitlist i can't find ( or at least i did not see it ) a way to change my mind and pay to get featured faster!
Hope this can help
Thanks for submitting! The waitlist grew fast I know 😅
I've added another option in the dropdown when you view your item to promote it. Thanks for the reminder!
Nice! I can see it now 💪 Btw congrats for the fast growing waitlist 🥳
Can i ask you if you accept all kind of product or do you filter out some application based on some kind of requirement ? :)
Good q. I'd like to avoid curating if possible. But for now it's first come first served.
This is so cool! Congrats 🎉 I took a look at your other products and was both seriously impressed and surprised that they didn’t generate any revenue! You have a great eye for clear yet personality-infused design that I rarely see. Not to mention the monetization strategy for Just Launched is super clever. Can’t wait to see what else you get up to!
Thanks, I have never been complimented on my design skills but I'll take it!
Hey Alex, that's super awesome!
Yet another success case of someone with multiple iterations hitting the first $. So stoked for you!
Thank you thank you! I'd kind of decided to take a break from indie hacking for the next month or so because I've been doing some long days for months now.
But this has definitely spurred me on
Congrats, Alex! I'm familiar with "zip to show for them". Great to see hard work pays off, eventually! Keep it up!
Congratulations man! Keep it going!
Congrats! This feeling is so addicting. Enjoy it and keep building!
😄 feels so good!
Congratulation Alex! Wow, four products in this amount of time, that's awesome. I'm still working on my first, but I hope to get on your level one day!
Cheers Diego! Just a normal developer who had time and then a few ideas!
Very cool idea Alex! I love these simple projects that immediately bring in revenue. Where did you promote Just Launched?
Product Hunt primarily (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/just-launched-2), it did better than I could have ever imagined.
This is really cool. Congrats.
Randomly I made a chrome extension with the same name.
Its actually the opposite to your Just Launched. It has the aim that you never miss a product launch no matter how big or small.
I never really promoted it though.
Hmm, yeah, I'm not concerned if you're not. Only so many names in this world. That looks pretty sweet though. Is launch feed also your product?
