Hey there! 👋 I’m proud to introduce the IndieStack community. We’re a private community for digital makers, bootstrappers, indie founders, and solopreneurs. Our community members are absolutely amazing dedicated indie entrepreneurs making a better living online. I created this private community because after 9 months of being an indie maker I realized I didn’t have any real online friends. Only people I followed. I vaguely knew many people but never felt like I was a part of anything. Being an indie entrepreneur is a lonely journey so I decided to create a tight and intimate community for us focused on building real genuine relationships. Another reason I decided to create IndieStack was that so many of the public communities are rooted in building an audience and selling a product. It was getting pretty old to see posts where the author gives their value and then at the end pitches their product. It’s all engineered to bring customers and not build relationships. Also, there are so many amazing indie entrepreneurs out there like Justin Jackson and Rob Walling who’re already indie superstars that it’s impossible to break into their inner circles. That’s another reason I created IndieStack. To give all of the other digital makers an opportunity to join an amazing inner circle where they can grow with the rest of their peers. We all benefit from the collective. I welcome you to joining our thriving and growing community if you’re looking to build amazing friendships on your indie quest. We’re your digital family and we’re excited to have you join! Today I want to give the ProductHunt 25% off all plans! https://indiestack.memberful.com... https://indiestack.memberful.com... Update: We just crossed 100 members! (10+ have joined so far today)

@yarobagriy I never liked "lifetime" plans, because you never know what lifetime is with any product/company. Many things could go wrong. I also think that since you're not offering a free plan, you should at least offer a lower monthly fee. At least this way I wouldn't have to pay the yearly fee to dislike it afterwards. Congrats on the launch, it looks great on the outside, it would be even better if you offer a way for people to try it out before paying anything. Good luck & keep it up!

@yarobagriy Justin is pretty open on Twitter, and has a community too with MegaMakers that people can join. Not sure I'd call that impossible.

@owenfar1 thank you for the support Owen 🙏 we have no intention of going away. We’re in it for the long term. Also I do agree with you. But offering a free trail or monthly membership will cause a very big influx of people. Also you need more than a month to really get value out of a community. A month simply isn’t enough time. We are adding an application process and interview process soon too.

How that different than indiehacker?

@naveh_mevorach I am a member of both but find IndieStack more intimate because of its private nature. I share things and am more vulnerable there than I might be on Indie Hackers because the latter is publicly accessible to anyone browsing the web.

@naveh_mevorach Like Colin said in his comment, it is private. Private means privacy. With the public communities everyone has access to what you post. This could be a turn off for many people who really want to get feedback but with a smaller audience. Also with a private community members are much more engaged. The discussions are much more detailed and in-depth. We have virtual meetups where to discuss peoples products, feedback, ideas, and so much more. It really does feel like a virtual city. A digital family. Sign-up for a year and see for yourself. You won't regret it!

@yarobagriy I might give it a try:)? But how can you manage who get access to the content. Does everyone get join the community or there are some terms?
