As an independent developer, can you earn 2 million by selling courses?


Can you make money without working? Tips for success as an independent developer

Have you ever had this thought: How great would it be if you didn’t go to work and could make money just by making your own products? This is no longer a distant dream, but a reality that independent developers are enjoying. They used their creativity and skills to create a variety of popular products, thereby achieving financial freedom. Today, let’s talk about this mysterious and desirable group-independent developers.

Independent developers, as the name suggests, are those who are not attached to any company or organization and develop products and make profits on their own. They may be programmers, designers, creators, or even all-rounders who do it all in one person. Their products may be software, games, courses, artwork, etc. As long as they can meet market demand, they may become their source of income.

So, how do independent developers achieve financial freedom? First, they need to have a good product. This product may be developed based on their own experience and skills, or it may be created by them keenly capturing market needs. No matter what, the product needs to have a unique selling point and value to attract users to pay for it.

Secondly, independent developers need to have their own sales channels. This channel may be your own website, e-commerce platform, social media, etc. As long as you can sell your products, you may bring in revenue. At the same time, they also need to continuously learn and update their knowledge and skills to maintain the competitiveness and innovation of their products.

However, the success of independent developers does not happen overnight. They also need to spend a lot of time and energy developing products, promoting sales, handling customer feedback, etc. Moreover, since independent developers usually work alone or in a small team, they also need to be more self-motivated and able to withstand pressure.

In China, there are also many successful cases of independent developers. For example, there is an up owner who has achieved a stable income of 500,000 yuan per year by selling courses and his own independent products. Although this number is not as high as the annual salary of a major factory, it is already very considerable for freelancers. One of his products is "Simple Resume". Although his monthly income is only two to three thousand, watching the continuous growth and improvement of the product brings him an indescribable sense of accomplishment and happiness. This is also a major difference between independent developers and company workers: they can feel the growth and market feedback of their products more directly.

Of course, not every indie developer succeeds. Most of the projects will probably fail and the income will not even be as good as a regular job. Therefore, if you are also interested in trying the lifestyle of an independent developer, it is best to try it while working, and then consider dedicating it full-time after you have made some progress. This can not only ensure a stable source of income, but also leave a way out for yourself.
