    TL;DR: Hi, and by the way - what are good ways and places to look for clients for tools like bots and captcha solvers?

    Hello!

    A friend introduced me to this forum and I immediately wished, I knew about it earlier. So much useful information and a good spirit of sharing knowledge!

    I'm around 30, single male, living in Europe. I'm your typical geek or nerd, like probably most here. I was a hobbyist programmer with a special liking for exploiting loopholes and removing software protections.

    Some time ago life circumstances put me in position, that I turned my hobby into a job. I created few websites, but it's not really my cup of tea, especially that I suck at design and I'm colorblind. Programming side was OK, but in order for this to work, I would have to team up with a designer, and I wanted to work solo. Long story short, now I'm making various bots and web scrapers with Python and JavaScript on top of PhantomJS. For a while I was happy with this situation, and sometimes I had a lot of fun.

    But now I would like to explore new ways of earning money. I would like to make a product and maintain it, instead of starting from scratch with every job. For example, now I'm almost finished with a Confident Captcha solver. It's a type of program, which is general enough to be useful to wider audience. I have no clue how to approach advertising and selling it. Any advice?

    Thanks to BHW community - you are great!
