Accurately Convert PDF Bank Statements to CSV
How did you come up with the microstartup idea?
I wanted to analyse my spending, and found that my bank only provides PDF statements. I wrote some code to extract the transaction records. Then I figured other people might have the same problem.
How did you find your first customers?
I bought Google search ads. It was an exercise in losing money, but worth it for the feedback from users.
How are you finding your customers today?
Now I focus a lot on creating blog posts. It's a good way to build up keywords and get organic users through search.
What's your advice for other microfounders who want to get started?
Plan less and execute more. I see a lot of people who do a lot of planning but never get their idea into production.
