Hey everyone!
This week was super cool.
One deal happened, and the Tinder swipe bot project was sold.
I published new changes to the website. Added wall of love and recently sold projects.
And of course, the main story of this newsletter is how I estimate the price of the SaaS project.
I am super impressed with how things are going on. And you?

Now let’s crack on with the newsletter ☕️
🎲 How to estimate SaaS project
I want to share some insights on how you can estimate the SaaS project.
This method is universal, but it isn’t suitable for all of the cases. For example, you can’t estimate other types of projects like newsletters or communities.
So, let’s start.
Take your trailing 12 months income and subtract your expenses.
For example, you got $3,500 in revenue in the last 12 months minus $500 for ads, domain, and hosting. The result is $3,000. This is your annual profit.
Then multiply it by 2-5. The multiplier depends on a variety of factors. The most common multiplier I see is equal to 3.5.
Therefore we can multiply our $3,000 by 3.5 and get a $10,500 asking price.
But of course, that is only applicable for SaaS projects.
🤑 Recently acquired startup
This week we sold one more startup.
I am so happy that Tyler found a buyer for his Tinder bot project.

Let me share his testimonial with you:
Extremely grateful to have my website sold quickly after being listed on Microns (I heard about it from Product Hunt).
Not only was the process of getting listed super simple, but I heard back from interested buyers very quickly (within 1-2 weeks post listing).
Seriously would recommend anyone serious about selling their website to check on Microns.
🌹 New website changes
This week you can find two new sections on the Microns website.
First, I added a wall of love, where we put Twitter testimonials from our users.
