Today marks a big milestone for me as an Indiehacker.
After five months of working super hard, HelpKit hit $1000 MRR. With no Product Hunt launch (yet) and focusing solely on building in public and engaging with the Notion community. This is a big milestone for me and honestly, a small dream came true.
For some, this might be not that much but for me, it definitely is. This site and community is the reason I started my Indiehacking journey instead of getting caught in a perhaps dull corporate job, so I am incredibly thankful for it. I have already been working on several projects before HelpKit that didn't even come close to this sacred MRR number. Ultimately, listening to basically every single IH podcast episode and the support from fellow makers on Twitter is what kept me going and stay motivated.
I am extremely thankful for all the folks who have supported me so far on my journey to become ramen profitable and... beyond.
I guess, this is just the beginning.
I’m doing a Ask-Me-Anything on Indiehackers today. Perhaps I have a good answer or a mistake to share that you should totally avoid. Whatever it is, throw it at me!
If you don’t know what HelpKit is, here is the TLDR:
In short, HelpKit is a no code tool that allows you to easily turn your Notion docs into a professional help center / documentation page. I started it because I was fed up with the existing knowledge base solutions and I am absolutely loving Notion. You can read more about the background story here in this interview if you are curious.
