Hey fellow makers,
I'd love to get some monetization ideas from the good community here. I run a software marketplace/directory that has a decent amount of visits (~250k users/month). As of now, the only monetization option is "featured listings" - software vendors paying $99/month to promote their products on relevant pages around the website.
I've been given a tip by @arimbr that I should consider building a specific product, that I can sell directly to the audience of SaaSHub instead of relying on "featured listings" only.
So, if you were me and were running a relatively popular software marketplace/directory, what product would you build to monetize it?
Edit: I'm avoiding affiliate programs intentionally.
Thanks in advance for your advices!
