I am looking for a business coach. If anyone in this group is a coach or knows someone who wants to mentor then I am looking for that person. I am self-funded and am technical. I've built https://storycreatorapp.com and believe there is serious potential here.
So far on my own, I have managed to make $16k since I started charging last April. The problem I am currently facing is my time is invested heavily in technical tasks to keep the app in the best possible condition as well as staying innovative. While I am a firm believer that is necessary, I am looking to game plan with someone weekly to make sure each week is as effective as possible for growth.
This person would call me out on my BS and work with me to create actionable game plans and call me out if I don't follow through.
Customers: 89 total customers 20 monthly subscriptions $13.6k from lifetime deals $3k in total recurring revenue since April 2020. On average since I started charging in April I've been pulling in about $2k per month if you take the total divided by the number of months.
I am not doing a good job of gaining traction and not doing a good job of getting the app out there (marketing). I have had a few moments of glory, some spikes which brought the bulk of revenue but it's not consistent. The best drivers for me have been Product Hunt https://www.producthunt.com/posts/story-creator-2?utm_source=badge-top-post-badge&utm_medium=badge&utm_souce=badge-story-creator-2 and Hacker News, plus some Tweets that gained some interest.
I want to hit $10k MRR by December. I am doing $400 MRR with 20 customers, so this means I need to sell the product to 480 people in one month. This means about 16 sales per day. I could also raise my price to $25 per month and go after 380 customers which is about 12 per day.
