Lately James and I have been running in the same Twitter circles and supporting each others work. I thought what he was doing with TinaCMS and Roll Your Tweet looked really cool. But what REALLY caught my eye was when he said he had already reached $139 MRR in just 2 days since launching his product XPoster.
When I checked out the product, I also loved how simple and clear the value proposition is. It wasn’t a bloated product with a ton of features. It just did one thing well–cross posting your content to multiple channels.
It resonated too. Every time I write a Maker of Habit article, I think about cross posting it to Indie Hackers, but sometimes I forget or run out of time.
I’m not sure if he supports posting to IndieHackers yet, but if he does, I’m in.
James also has amazingly consistent output of content for his Youtube channel and blog.
It’s clear he’s on to something. So what can we learn from him?
