How did you come up with the microstartup idea?
Daniel Nguyen πŸ“–
Amazon provided the send-to-Kindle functionality for years. But they stopped all the developments a few years ago, leaving users in frustration.

As someone who read a lot of blog posts and online content, I'm one of those frustrated users.

I saw the demand and decided to build a better alternative.

How did you find your first customers?
Daniel Nguyen πŸ“–
By building in public on Twitter.

I built the MVP in a weekend, shared it on Twitter and got some tractions. A few weeks later, someone mentioned KTool on Hacker News and I got my first sale.

How are you finding your customers today?
Daniel Nguyen πŸ“–
Mostly on Twitter and by word of mouth. I started exploring SEO and Reddit but haven't yet to find success.

What's your advice for other microfounders who want to get started?
Daniel Nguyen πŸ“–
β€” I think the most difficult thing is to get started. Don't treat it as a new startup and you would overthink a lot of things. Treat it as a weekend project you build for funβ€”then share it on Twitter/Reddit/IndieHacker.

β€” Ask questions. People love to give suggestions on things you're working on, but only if you ask for it.

β€” If you're struggling with marketing like myself, try building in public on Twitter. The BIP community there is really supportive.
