Today, I've got a huge announcement to make - I've decided to make Notifia Freemium!
In my recent months as an entrepreneur, I've realised what makes me happy as an entrepreneur. Years ago, on my first start ups and ventures I was just thinking how can I make as much money with these startups as possible, how can I make $1 million dollars, how can I scale ads, how can I acquire more paying customers which is what led me down the road of Growth Hacking - to truly learn the art of 'Hacking Growth' for my businesses to drive revenue.
and it's great, at age 22 I had a startup turning over $79k per month, as the sole team member I was making extremely good money for someone my age - but to be honest, I can't say that I was happy.
This was over a year and a half ago now, and before whenever I saw a new subscription come in from Stripe, that would put a smile on my face.
But these days, it's nice to see new sales coming in, but I've realised the thing that makes me happier is having thousands of active users, receiving positive feedback from customers and delivering value to people using my products - nowadays, the thing that makes me happiest is receiving a message over Intercom on how much we've helped someone grow their sales & leads.
So in an almost selfish move, I've decided to make Notifia a Freemium Software Platform, so that we can open our platform to a wider market and receive more positive feedback and influence more websites sales than ever before.
We will still be offering paid plans of course (as we need to support the development of the project, and I need to keep a roof over my head 😉).
As mentioned above, previously my goal with a business was to earn $1,000,000 from the company. However with Notifia, my goals aren't revenue related and I would like to reflect that.
The overall goal for Notifia is to;
Increase Sales, Leads & Growth for 1 Million Websites.
Moving Notifia to a Freemium Model opens the Marketing to us and will help us achieve this goal.
