Grow your marketplace into community
This week was fantastic except for electricity problems that covered all parts of Ukraine. Almost 40% of energy infrastructure suffered because of Russian attacks.
Today, you'll learn more about Microns in my recent interview: how we started, the challenges we experienced, and how we solved them.
Those who took part in the survey will receive a pair of our stickers.
And last but not least, we're looking for makers who write a newsletter. We'll sponsor some of you.
P.S. This newsletter issue was written in the bunker (here's a pic).

Now let’s crack on with the newsletter ☕️
🐱 Your stickers
Two weeks ago, I surveyed our newsletter audience. You can find results in our latest edition.
As promised, I want to send you a pair of our brand-new stickers.
For this reason, I created a simple form, so feel free to submit it (it takes only 15 seconds).
🤝 Interview about building Microns
A few weeks ago, I participated in an interview with Sam Hartmann. We talked about building, growing, and making revenue with your startup.
I covered challenges in building Microns and making it a friendly marketplace for bootstrapped founders and entrepreneurs.
Suppose you want to learn more about me and Microns. In that case, it's a great opportunity, especially if you're a newbie in the startup world.
💵 Will become your sponsor
If you run a newsletter, I'd love to sponsor it. Ideally, we're looking for newsletter with 50% open rate and a 10% click rate.
Audience: entrepreneurs, developers, designers, marketers, and PMs.
Reply to me, and we'll figure out the details. I like building relationships with startup makers and motivating them to keep doing a great job.
