The Indie Worldwide Newsletter

Welcome to the Indie Worldwide Newsletter!
Every month we shine the spotlight on a founder in the Indie Worldwide community who’s been working hard and accomplishing great things.
To kick this newsletter off I’m excited to announce a project collaboration launching today on Product between myself, Ana Bibikova, Bhanu and with the contributions of several dozen indie founders.
We’ve interviewed dozens of experienced founders over the last few months in order to create the best introductions to marketing for indie founders available anywhere.

Big thank you to everyone who subscribed to the newsletter and gave us early feedback on the guides!

Events Past and Future 🌐

Our first ever in-person meetup was in NYC last week. It was really fun to meet some indie worldwide friends in person for the first time. Hoping to do more local events this year, pandemic-weather permitting. If you’d like to host something in your city reply to this email and let me know 😊

This last month we had two really insightful Q&A’s all about growth and marketing with Trevor Longino and Amar Ghose. We’ll be releasing the recordings from those in the next couple weeks on the Indie Worldwide YouTube Channel.
If you missed out on those events it might be because you’re not yet a part of Founders’ Club. Founders’ Club members get first dibs on our speaker-events, weekly matches with potential mentors, and discounts from a bunch of awesome companies like Stripe, AWS, MongoDB and more.
Our next virtual meetup coming up in April open to everyone and registration is now open. Grab your spot:

Ana, Bhanu, and I launched Wizen Guides on Product Hunt and we’re holding on to the number 1 spot so far. We’re writing hot-to guides on bootstrapped marketing topics.
Zachary Burau launched Gomoku.com, the most addicting board game you’ve never played before. It’s like Go meets Connect Four and I’m already hooked.
Hua launched Typogram, a super beginner-friendly logo-builder. No more random logo generations, DIY your unique logo and be in charge from day one.
Rox launched Clipbot.TV, automatically upload your Twitch clips to TikTok and YouTube Shorts and grow overnight. Don't stress over creating content, just do the part you love: streaming. Clipbot will handle the rest.
Don’t forget to post your launches in #launch-alert in the slack for a chance to be featured next month.
If you’re not in the Slack already you can get an instant invite by joining Founders’ Club, the pro-version of Indie Worldwide. You’ll also get access to (optional) curated 1-1 matches and a whole bunch of free resources from our partners like AWS, Stripe, and MongoDB.
That’s all for this month, hopefully see you at the April meetup 😉
