Edit Notes

Hello and welcome back to Indie Bites, the podcast where I bring you stories from fellow indie hackers in 15 minutes or less. In this episode, I'm joined by Marie Poulin.

Marie started the Notion Mastery course back in Nov 2019, growing that to a mid-6 figure business in under a year. Her whole business has been built on taking a leap of faith an niching down and putting her sole focus on this notion course. In this episode we talk about her compounding efforts over the years that have led her to such an impressive year, and how her YouTube channel has contributed to almost 80% of course traffic.

Before we get into this episode, a quick note from this week's sponsor, ilo.

You probably know that Twitter is an incredibly useful tool for us as indie hackers, but sometimes Twitter's in-built analytics tool doesn't quite give you the metrics that really matter.

Dan Rowden, from Indie Bites episode 17, has created the most useful analytics tool for Twitter, giving you the metrics that actually help you understand your tweet performance and grow your audience. With one glance, ilo helps you easily see which kind of tweets get more impressions, likes, profile clicks and more so you can get grow your Twitter audience. ilo's beautiful graphs and useful metrics have helped me double my Twitter audience in less than 4 months.
