We are an internet startup that has just finished its first month of our soft launch. We have a little over 1,000 registered members, and now have a proven marketing & business model with metrics to back them up. Now it is just a matter of scaling our operation to achieve profitability. Our current business model can be described as a "freemium" model, where users use our site mainly for free, until they upgrade to a "featured profile". By the time we achieve 10,000 "featured profiles", we should have site revenue up to around $2M. The revenue just from the "featured profiles" is almost $1.5M. The rest of the $.5M is from other revenue streams. We have very little overhead, so revenue is essentially profit. The company has the potential to have hundreds of thousands of paying members in the long run.
We are seeking anywhere from 100K-500K, but the 200K stated above is a good number to settle with at this stage of the company. Just off of "featured profile" revenue alone, we can cover a 200K investment with 1,500 members paying the $12/month fee for 12 months. This number will not be hard to achieve at all with a 200K investment. I have run this company by myself, and with very little startup or marketing money. I will continue to manage our budget the same way, even after an investment. If there is any interest, please contact me through the contact form and introduce yourself. Let’s talk business. I know you will be very impressed with the product & the opportunity.
