How did you come up with the microstartup idea?
Luca Restagno ⚡ Hivoe.com
Many big accounts on Twitter talk about DMs as a powerful tool to make good connections, and relationships, and find clients.
I wanted to try to leverage them better, and I realized that there's big potential.
That's when I thought about the welcome message for the new followers, to kickstart new conversations.

How did you find your first customers?
Luca Restagno ⚡ Hivoe.com
I'm very active on Twitter, and I'm building in public my products.
The first customer found Hivoe on Twitter.
And fun fact, he asked me to pay even if I didn't created any subscription plan yet.

How are you finding your customers today?
Luca Restagno ⚡ Hivoe.com
The process is still the same. I share my journey as an indie hacker on Twitter, and this gives visibility to the product.
Also, many people when they receive a welcome message, ask about how it was created, and my users reply "using Hivoe"!
So there's a kind of virality in the product itself.

What's your advice for other microfounders who want to get started?
Luca Restagno ⚡ Hivoe.com
My advice is to start by creating a distribution channel. It can be a newsletter or an audience on a social media platform.

Then validate the need for your product, create a preselling page, and collect money even before building the solution. It'll give you a hint about how urgent is the problem for your audience.

Finally, start building!
