    Hi all, Due to a bit of a venue mix up, this week we’re just going to have a catch up and some drinks in Trof. We’re on the first floor in the right hand corner of the room near the steps. Leave a message below if you have any questions.

  • Indie Hackers 4 - "Traction" by Gabriel Weinberg & Justin Mares

    Troff, Northern Quarter

    This time we try to answer the question "how do I grow my customer base?" We'll be taking a look at the answers that Gabriel Weinberg (duckduckgo.com) gives in his book "Traction". Starting with a presentation of his method for finding the right marketing channel for your business, followed by quickly going through some of the 20 or so specific techniques he mentions and ending with the usual beers and chit chat. See you there!

  • Introductions & "The Mom Test"

    Trof Northern Quarter

    This is the inaugural meetup of Indie Hackers Manchester! We're looking forward to meeting you all. Schedule: - 6.30 Arrivals & introductions - 7.00 Discussion on "The Mom Test: How to talk to customers and learn if your business is a good idea when everyone is lying to you." - 8.00 Drinks & socialising. "The Mom Test" is a book about having valuable conversations with potential customers that don't just lead to them telling you what you want to hear. I'm going to present some of the ideas from the book for us to discuss and compare with our own experiences. I've booked out the top floor room of Trof, located at the front of the building. To find the staircase, go into the main ground floor bar and head towards the back of the room. Go up to the third floor and down the corridor to the right of the stairs.
