If you’re like me, you want to rush and start building an MVP as soon as you have an idea. I’ve done it in the past, and I failed. Every time. I failed because the product isn’t the most important part of your startup; customers are. That’s what you should focus on from day 1.
This strategy is so baked into people's head that when you actually build something and toss a url out there where they can download the product, they ask you where they can subscribe to the waiting list.
And I'm like what kind of waiting list, there's literally a download button on the page.
Makes me think if the strategy really works - like for everyone - or it's just for indie hackers who already know about this.
Love this man.
I'm a developer and I can't tell you how many things I've shipped to Netlify without validating first! Thousands of lines of code... hours and hours of time I won't get back.
