Hello I’m Charly The Rabbit and this is my journey as an Indie Maker.
Indie Maker: Person building a software idea that can generate revenue.

The Project (Work in progress)
Viral Quotes (viral-quotes.com) will allows small business owners to viralize their brands without paying ads

What exactly is a Viral Quote?
This type of content is highly shareable on social networks because it makes people feel intelligent and profound, who doesn’t want to look smart?. You can use that human need to promote your brand (Logo and URL)


A crazy pricing model?
I love experimenting with new ideas, to monetize this project two plans will be available
Note: $XX means a fixed price, but I haven’t decided the amount yet.


White: Pay what you want (min $1), show Logo or URL, 30 quotes.
Purple: Pay $XX, show Logo and URL, 600 quotes.

The process will be fully automated, you will receive your Viral Quotes in minutes

The Journey

One time per week I will post my progress here. The initial posts will be related to the development process but once the app is launched I will share my monthly income, expenses, the challenges I face during the journey and how I swing them, and announce possible new features for the future.

Expenses
Let me share some initial numbers with you.
Domain: $20/year
Server power: $5/month
Hosting: $0 (I’m using the free tier of Firebase Hosting)
Development: I’m coding everything by myself, but I will sum the total hours I’ve spent on this project and multiply it by $20, which is the current hourly fee I earn on my day job.
UI Design: 10hrs x $20 = $200 (Yeah I also did the UI Design).

I hope this execution likes you, questions are welcome and advice/feedback super welcome !

Will this be an API?

You've probably listened to this podcast episode on IH. If not, it's worth a listen:
Hey t15 that was a great episode!, thanks for the recommendation :thumbsup:. This initial version won't have an API but is something I will keep in mind for the future.

WEEKLY UPDATE
I was absent for some time because I got sick, but I'm on track again ;)
This week I fully coded Step 3: Square Settings and Step 4: Rectangular Settings screens. Those screens will allows you to positionate your logo and url/brand.
