The answer to this question might be super simple for you. Seeking alt perspectives here than my own. So go ahead suggest the simplest thing you can think of.
In August, last month, I made $1k from the SaaS I run. Pigeon, it's a CRM in gmail. While every CRM can be sold to sales teams, I'm focusing my efforts on creators, professional influencers, and even more so on Newsletter writers. It's a byproduct of being familiar with this type of creator, because I have experience being a newsletter writer and using this CRM to grow my own newsletter.
I've decided to take 100% of the revenue and divert it to growth this month. I'm $200 MRR away from being profitable. If it grows at exactly the same MRR as the 2 previous months It'd be profitabile. But I'd like to account for churn too so I'm going all in.
Bootstrappers ya feel me? I'm going deep, not just allocating profits. I'm talking the whole kit and caboodle!
If you can do a little mental exercise, go to the comments below, before reading on, and start typing what you would do with $1k .
All users must be gmail users on chrome. It's a chrome extension. it's a CRM, mail merge, and automated followups. all CRMs are good for sales processes, but this one is especially good for one person media companies. Bloggers, Content sites, Newsletters.
Would you do google ads? facebook ads? reddit ads? Affiliate marketing? SEO optimization? Would you hire a contractor for $1k? would you hire 5 for $200?
Here's what I've done so far
Got $400 left
edit: $350 left
To give some background on what worked in the past few months. I've been able to tweet more, and launch on product hunt. Those two combined have resulted in... as Borat would say... "Great Success!!"
But I can't launch on PH again. Nor spend $4k on an promoted post. Nor can I fill my timeline much more with more tweets. (working on it though)
What would you do if you had $400 and nearly anywhere to spend it to get traffic and installs of a chrome extension for gmail?
