1. I didn’t choose the most popular idea
This one is obvious. It would’ve better to go with the most popular idea from the market research poll that I did on indiehackers.com. I see a lot of potential in the idea that the audience chose.
2. I asked the wrong questions
I wasn’t able to read my customers’ minds because I didn’t ask the right questions. The key to finding out the truth about your potential customers is to ask the right questions. To find out the truth, it’s important to ask questions that will get you accurate information.
3. The market is saturated
There are many landing page creators available on the market, which makes it difficult for new businesses to compete in this market. I don’t think I could compete with the big players who are already offering free services, and new tools are coming out every day.
4. Entrepreneurs are emotional about their landing pages
Some entrepreneurs or indie hackers find building landing pages to be an emotional process. They want to design it themselves and make it perfect.
5. Technical entrepreneurs are comfortable with HTML templates
If the founder is a developer or designer, they may be more comfortable hosting their own landing pages with HTML5 templates. I learned this lesson the hard way. 😞
