Minh-Phuc Made 8K+ in 2 Months from Notion Template

Minh-Phuc Tran is the founder of Nora - A Notion template that solves painful problems of project management in Notion instead of looking beautiful.
 

Tell us about your product and what inspired you to start it?

I've tried many templates and rebuilt project management in Notion myself many times but many of them are just cool & beautiful but don't actually solve painful problems of project & task management.
 

How long did it take you to acquire your first 50 customers, and what was your growth strategy?

2 days. I launched on ProductHunt and Twitter and got all of my customers there. I've made about $2,500 in 3 days. I share my process and strategy in details here: https://twitter.com/phuctm97/status/1529810054542761984.
 

Which technology stack are you using and what challenges and limitations does it pose?

TypeScript, Next.js, TailwindCSS, Gumroad, and landing page templates. I didn't have any significant challenges because I've been using this tech stack for quite some time.
 

What are some of the most essential tools that you use for your business?

Other than the programming tools & services, Twitter & ProductHunt are 2 most important tools.
 

What have been some of the biggest insights you've gained since starting your entrepreneurial journey?

Try to get a product out in less than a week, which ensures you don't have enough time to burn out and be distracted.
 
The first version of the product should only do one thing that no existing product can do. Any else doesn't matter.
 
Don't be too attached to an idea. Being attached to an idea makes you feel bad if the product is crappy. Being attached to an idea makes you think it's okay to spend months on the idea.
