I'd love to feature you in the Indie Worldwide newsletter, but I need your help.
Promoting indie hackers and the cool stuff they're doing is the main reason this newsletter exists at all. The main way I find out what you're working on is when you post in The Indie Worldwide Slack, in particular the #launch and #wins channels.
Help me out and post something cool that happened this week in #wins or about a new product launch in the #launch channel so that I can talk about you in the next issue and link to your product.

On Friday we invited Seb Lindner, Indie Woldwide member and founder of the Web3 Daily newsletter, to talk about how he grew his newsletter to over 20k subs and made over $50,000 in less than a year.
My takeaways from the talk:
- Facebook Ads work, if you’ve got the money (can start with a few $100) it’s worth investing in them. Get your customer acquisition cost below <$1/subscriber and you're doing great.
- Referral programs are also awesome and if the reward is a digital product then they’re almost free to run. You can use Sparkloop (works with any newsletter) or Beehiiv (built into their platform) to manage your rewards program and avoid false-referrals.
- Trading shoutout/partnering with other newsletters is a great growth mechanism that scales. One way to set up these partnerships efficiently is via a platform called Upscribe.
Congrats to all indie builders who launched a product or update this past week! If you’re planning a launch yourself, be sure to let everybody know in #launch and we might feature you here next week.
