Sell your side project?

If you'd sell your side project and a fair price for it is between $1,000 and $15,000, would love to know about it!

I acquire small profitable digital projects and run a newsletter for interested buyers (tinyacquire.com), so hopefully can help you sell by listing it. March always tends to be a little sparse for most marketplaces so looking for interesting opportunities to include. Ideally there's revenue, but we make some exceptions so open to hearing about any makers looking to sell.

    Hi Dshan. I just checked your site and service, and I didn't notice a trail period or a sample of what do I get for $5 a month. I pressed a button, and it asked me for my credit card. Is it possible to have some sort of idea of what your service provides?

    1. 2

      Hey! Sorry for delay here. And the project's in beta mode so hadn't built a trial yet. You can see last week's digest here: https://us2.campaign-archive.com/?u=e7526eec380e283e9872808e3&id=234469014e

      I should have a trial/example easy to find on the homepage, will fix that ASAP!

    Since it was only $5, I went ahead and signed up. Some questions that I think should probably be answered on the landing page:

    • How often do emails go out?

    • How many businesses are typically listed in an email?

    • Are you involved in the sales process at all, or are you just connecting buyer with seller?

    • What's your curation/vetting process?

    • How do I cancel my membership?

      Fantastic feedback, you're 100% right. I've added all that to the landing page. I'll also implement a better onboarding once signed up.

    Are you interested in non-revenue projects?

    1. 1

      Thanks for asking! I'm leaning towards revenue projects, since it's hard to price non-revenue assets.

      That said, I'll look at any project, so the answer is yes. :)

    Any way to get a sample of some of the listings? I could not locate a way to do so on the site.

    1. 2

      This is something I would definitely be interested in but I am a little hesitant to give credit card information to a website that offers no information with the exception of a landing page.

      1. 1

        Totally understand - just added to site and you can check it out here: https://us2.campaign-archive.com/?u=e7526eec380e283e9872808e3&id=234469014e

      Yep, sorry about that. Still building out the signup experience - I've added an example to the landing page - it's here: https://us2.campaign-archive.com/?u=e7526eec380e283e9872808e3&id=234469014e

      Cheers!

      I agree with this. Maybe include a list of companies that were recently sold through your service?

      1. 1

        Thanks for the suggestion! Tiny Acquire is curating business listings from all over the web, trying to improve signal to noise ratio for interested buyers. So I don't handle transactions at all. I cut out the spam/scam projects and try to highlight ones that seem compelling, with notes on why and what type of buyer might be a good fit for a particular asset.

        In cases where a seller comes directly to us, I'm just connecting interested parties to them via email.

      Sorry about that! Had an insane day with the crazy blizzard that rolled through Denver and took a lot longer than expected to come back and check the thread!

      Please let me know if you have any other questions!

      1. 2

        hope everything is ok!

        1. 1

          It is, thank you! Beyond my wife being stuck in Atlanta and unable to get home until tomorrow!

    love the idea. would also love to see more details on what businesses are listed etc.

    1. 1

      Thanks Brian - I just added a bunch of context to the landing page (tinyacquire.com) based on feedback here, but let me know if there are any other questions or curiosities.
