Without customers, there is no option for my product to be alive.
Therefore I figured out available options.
After learning marketing and being inspired by the Hustle, I got the idea of community.
I knew it would be a long and hard game.
Because building community from scratch, it's like playing the game in the hardest mode.
Anyway, I chose this option and created a newsletter called Microns Newsletter.
I planned to list a few small startups for sale, share information about my businesses, post stories from my subscribers and answer any questions my readers may have.
The next step is to promote it and see how it goes.
I researched the market and list all competitors in this field.
Didn't find exactly what I want. So, I started building it by myself.
Inspired by different designs from Dribble, I created a few screens for it.
It was built with Next.js, React.js, Vercel, Magic, Stripe, and Smartsupp.
There were listing, startup's details page, filters, and the possibility to create new startups for sale.
I built it for 3 months as a side project but ended up.
I realized that I was solving this problem for myself and there are no clients ready to try the product.
I froze development and started learning how to get first customers.
I like investigating tech products. But more I like to make deals. Buying or selling apps are awesome things.
I figured out the there is no option for indie hackers and bootstrappers to make small size deals.
Moreover, they don't know what to do if they want to sell their app and its process.
There are tons of platforms where people sell $1M businesses, but that's not my case.
As a buyer, I would want to buy a small app and go all the founder's way with the previous owner. Learning marketing, sales, tech, and growing the product.
As a founder, I would want to make cash, get new connections and motivation to move to the next project.
My smallest cat have a name Micron 🐈
That's how Microns is born. Buy and sell micro startups. I would say indie startups.
Microns.io is a newsletter to discover the best micro-startups for sale. Join hundreds of other entrepreneurs and investors looking for their next micro-startup acquisition opportunity.
