My weekend project crossed 140,000 visits in 4 months, made without spending a single dollar.

I had made as a weekend project to learn Vue.js and Node. I did not think much just made the idea that I had in my mind.

It immidiately picked up and crossed 140,000 visits in 4 months. I did not spend a single dollar making it.

  1. Got the free domain from (they stopped giving them)
  2. Hosted the app on zeit(the api) + netlify(the vue.js app)

I did not promote this even a little bit and all the users were organic and I get an average of 35000 visits a month on it.

Today I am launching version 2.0 of tvflix. It's made with Nuxt.js & Tailwind CSS. Full hosted on zeit(new vercel).

Please upvote so that more people get to know about it.
