New Micro Startups For Sale 🚀 - 2021 Year Overview
Hello to my dear readers.
This week was pretty crazy in terms of engagement.
We've got a few Premium members on the board. In addition, people mentioned us on Twitter more than usual.
We've got a bunch of new cool micro-startups. I need some time to post them on the website.
The "Looking for a partner" section becomes more and more popular. So it makes sense to keep it in the newsletter.
Besides this, I've prepared 2021 overview slides.
Keep reading. I bet you find something valuable in this issue.

Now let’s crack on with the newsletter ☕️
📈 Year overview
Only 6 months have passed since I started Microns. But anyway, I have some numbers and slides to share with you.
Let's start our summary with the newsletter. Everything started with building an audience by writing this newsletter.
For 6 months in 2021, we acquired over 2,100 subscribers. On average, 47% of them actively opened and read the newsletter. At all, we sent 31 issues.
That's 350 subscribers every month 🔥
At the end of the year, we launched the Premium plan. That's helped us pay bills for the domain, servers, and sponsorships.
So, we've acquired 22 customers who paid us $2,283 net revenue, and we helped 12 founders to sell their micro-startups.
Sounds good for the bootstrapped startup, isn't it?
My main revenue-generating business is still my software agency.
But I have a big hope that Microns beat it in terms of net revenue this year.
Let's see. Fingers crossed 🤞
👨👩👧 Community spotlight
This week we discussed with my premium members the next set of new features.
The first one is about the Premium page. I want to refine the copy and content to make it more attractive.
I think it'll help us convert more people into Premium members.
Metrics for the startups are the second feature I focus on. Again, I want to help buyers do some due diligence, giving them more helpful information upfront.
Last but not least is the affiliate program. I want to reward our promoters for every paying customer. So I'm going to make it so sweet in terms of reward.
I will provide more information in the next month. So stay tuned.
If you want to be a part of something bigger and participate in the community life, consider joining Premium 🙌
