- Web development skills are nice to have when you want to build your own product.
- SEO is a good skill to understand how to promote anything.
- Don't spend much/any money on ads. If your product has value, there will be users.
Those are some key points from this article.

The guy wanted to open a digital agency to make products for others, but hated when customers told him "I heard you, but do this instead". Then he changed mind and wanted to create his own product.
It's better when you sell a product, not your time. Build once, sell twice. Especially if you are a software developer, as you understand a technical side of things.

Cinema online with other people
A web service where people watch a movie/series together. They can comment or even be connected via audio/video. There should be a feature to schedule a movie session. E.g. you schedule a session for the "Forrest Gump" tomorrow at 09:00, other people who are interested will join you.

Twitter catalog
Problem: it's difficult for new people on Twitter to find interesting people to follow. There is a search, but how do they know what keywords to use?

Possible solution: a browser extension or an app that shows you interesting people based on your preferences: location, a domain(about what a person posts), an average tweets per day, total tweets number, an average number of likes/retweets/comments per tweet, etc.

Telegram channels catalog
Problem: there are many small catalogs with groups and channels, but no one universal big catalog with channels by categories, posts frequency, other filters + analytics. Also, it would be great to have an option to request an advertisement in a specific channel as a advertiser. And to receive ad requests and be paid as a channel's owner. The catalog could be a layer between advertisers and authors.

Possible solution: one universal platform which is a huge catalog of Telegram channels/groups/bots. It's a go-to service to submit a channel as an owner and a go-to service to search channels as a user.
Such a platform should increase channels visibility on the Internet. As a channel owner, you don't need to worry much about giving your channel a visibility in other 100+ catalogs, social networks, etc.

One more idea: mirror a channel's posts to the web to make them visible for search engines. I know one such service, but it lacks optimisations in terms of SEO, i.e. anyway it's difficult to find a channel following this way. A solution should be well SEO optimized, so it will look like your posts in Telegram are similar to regular online articles.

Trip helper
Problem: I forget to gather all things I need when I'm going somewhere. Whenever it's a small or big trip, it's a bit hard to keep track on things to bring with me.
Also, another problem is that I can forget to do chores before going somewhere. E.g. to turn off electricity and water.

Possible solution: an app where you make a list of things to do before going somewhere, and the list of things to bring with you. It could be a bot that reminds you about such stuff.
