Podcast SaaS up for sale

My friend James is selling a profitable micro SaaS, RateMyPodcast on MicroAcquire.

It provides an easy way to gather feedback from listeners.

It's probably worth it for the domain alone!

Looking to take over a small, profitable indie SaaS app? I just listed  ratethispodcast.com for sale on MicroAcquire!  app.microacquire.com/startup/E26V5k…  pic.twitter.com/uC0h9yqXLX

Founder benefits from focus

Look at that graph! In most cases it's best to focus on one business instead of a portfolio of tiny bets.

This UK founder got growing when he chose one thing:

If I could go back in time, I'd have gone all in on one project earlier rather than building many small bets.I'm convinced the only reason that SaaS has started picking up steam is because I'm giving it the attention it needs to grow.  pic.twitter.com/mVnUdPHS6o

ChurnKey founder offers to help people bidding on his brand

Nice response from Nick.

Most people would get annoyed rather than offer help:

3 companies are piggybacking on our brand name.Google is pushing us below the fold. It's basically a ransom for our own brand.You know who you are. DM me if you'd rather invest in your product than throw money away to Google.  pic.twitter.com/hlubmq9ExH

Indie founder hits 4k MRR by adding subscriptions

Congrats to Florian for making the switch from one-off payments.

People say they hate subscriptions but realistically it's really hard to build a business from one-time payments

It also aligns incentives well.

I finally reached €4k MRR. 🥳I switched my apps to subscriptions 2 years ago. Before, I usually made around €1k a month (paid upfront).Now they pay my bills, and I can focus 100% on growing them even further. 🤗#buildinpublic  pic.twitter.com/o4u9EHAg7I

SEO keyword tip

A great tip from this indie hacker: find keywords where the top results are forum posts and then write an article

I've done this!

Forums are a goldmine for finding low competition keywords.User generated content is generally easy to beat.Most forums display the "views" count for each thread. Which gives you proof that the thread is getting traffic.  pic.twitter.com/PRReRghtyh
