📈 Monthly update
This month many great things happened. I focused Microns on revenue-generating, profitable startups and raised prices for Premium to $299/year.
It helped us prepare more quality projects for sale and match serious entrepreneurs together (many premium members told me that our valuations are more accurate and listings are better quality than our competitors).
Besides this, I created a new chapter for Microns. I found a new and awesome Webflow developer from Ukraine. He'll help me build the best experience for startup buyers and sellers. We already fixed all reported bugs. Currently, we are focused on prioritizing features. I hope to share it with you next week :)
This week, Acquire added a 4% commission to their platform. Meaning there is only one alternative left — Microns. And it put us in a great position because Microns is free, has excellent customer support, and a vast pool of buyers interested in SaaS, newsletters, Shopify, mobile apps and other online businesses.
More founders will join our community and benefit from it. We had stories where people sold their startups, partnered up and built something together. We are preparing some cool updates for founders, and I'm excited about it.
I paid our partners a 50% commission this week for referring new premium members. It was nice to see more people use different creative ways to promote Microns in their newsletters, social media, and content sites. And I love it!
As you remember, last week, I wanted to sell the MicroStartups project. And I received a lot of attention to it (to be precise, 20+ contact requests). Some of them were serious, some tire kickers. I even received a $4k offer, but the potential buyer stopped replying.
My main reason for selling was the time. I didn't have enough time to run the project. But right now, I have a more accurate goal. At the start of the year, I told you I wanted to redesign the site and create custom branding.
I contacted a few professional designers and asked them for a quote. Then I interviewed all of them and figured out the best designer for our project. He estimated the design and branding at $2,850 and 33 days. To accomplish this goal, we need an exact amount. I'd be happy to talk with you if you're ready to match the price.
And just some lite news: in one month, Microns was born (July 8th). After this date, I'll share our annual revenue and other interesting metrics. Stay tuned.
