    Hello I’m CharlyRabbit and this is my journey as 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 spending on ads

    What exactly is a Viral Quote?
    [​IMG]
    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.

    [​IMG]
    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 #BuildInPublic likes you, questions are welcome and advice/feedback super welcome !

    Your commitment to your art is fantastic, the time and effort being taken is commendable. It may seem a harder route for some but if you want success in life it's not so much about working harder but working smarter. In the words of Reggie Watts
    'As a child I was very much into gadgets and machines and robots. The idea of experimenting with machines to create art was always something I tinkered with'

    I wish you all the success, keep tinkering and best of luck Harvey :)

    WEEKLY UPDATE

    I've fully coded the "Step1: Business Information" screen, works on both mobile and desktop (up to 4k monitors). Here is where you will enter all your business information to generate the Viral Quotes.

    Is it intuitive? does it look as something easy to use? As always your feedback is welcomed.
