Micro Independent Software Vendors

Posted 12 April 2012 - 03:09 PM

I don't seem to be able to find any topics on MicroISVs here. People who make software and sell it online. Sometimes it consists of a single person.

I've read a few topics that mention selling software online but nothing in depth.

Are there any MicroISV people here who make a comfortable amount of money from it? Enough to go self-employed?

How long did it take to become successful and where were/are the pitfalls? (little demand for the software, poorly made website to advertise it, poorly made software, not enough marketing etc)

Creating a MicroISV is something I'm very interested in pursuing. I don't want to be a billionaire. Just enough to live comfortably in Thailand is enough for me :D

Thanks

I dont want to flog a dead donkey but those resources you provided are not bad. Still its not quite enough. I'd like to chat with someone who is successful with their own MicroISV business if there is anyone here like that and willing to talk.

Thanks
