Hi,

Since a lot of people (including me) are looking for business ideas, I figured I would build a leaderboard compiling all the famous money-making fastlane out there.

The revenue metrics are made readily available by the founders (Stripe-verified revenue).

Here it is : MakerLead - Discover new startups making real revenue

Would love some feedback from the community!

Cheers,
Lamine

Thank you for the link!

As someone looking to get into the Fastlane, it is helpful to see what different types of business see in monthly revenues to know what's feasible.

Thanks, awesome that you see some value in it. The startups have revenue numbers above $24K/mo at the moment. So they are quite advanced.
But soon I will also list more startups between $1k and $24k

1-Safari cannot open the page because the server cannot be found.
2-From google chrome: this site can't be reached.
3-From firefox: Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at makerlead.com. .....try again

Not that this is of any help, I have no idea on IT things, but I use Google Chrome and it is fine. :smile2:

Works for me now too.

Best guess is that it's a new website and took awhile to get indexed.

works for me. Cool website and interesting businesses.
It seems all of them are online-focused, right? Are any of them not tech?

Yes, tech/online-focused is an ever present theme in every one of the businesses on Makerlead.

But the industries they partake in are different.

Ex: Trtle is fitness industry, Bannerbear is in the marketing industry etc.

They share their revenue on indiehackers, I put the data source in the footer of MakerLead. These founders connect their stripe account there. So the revenue is verified.

interesting idea! who would be the target audience, angel investors, VC’s etc?

On top of my mind I my a column industry categories; Fintech, Cleantech, Healthtech etc…

Moreover, did you consider adding other metrics such data from google trends and social media engagement?

Audience would be founders trying to find an idea, investors looking to invest, and entrepreneurs showing their metrics transparently as free marketing. I'm still figuring out the business model (except obvious native ads).

Yes! This is really the minimum viable product. The next versions I'm going to add more data, and have each startup with their own page. Founders will be able to plug their data directly into Maker Lead.

Monetizing advanced filters seems a good idea you think?

Good stuff Lamine.

Well, yes that was my thought. The idea has to be validated though… A/B testing is your friend. I would personally look for google trend data on specific industries and company names. There is an unofficial python package acting API for google trends, worth checking out. It’s called pytrends.

Awesome work, Lamine!

I noticed you had a newsletter sign-up at the top. What would that newsletter entail? Anything beyond "here are the rankings for this month/week?"

Thanks for the tip! Going to have some fun with the library and see what I can do with it!

Thanks for the kind words!

The newsletter is going to contain:
- Trends section (explaining a certain niche, and the products contained inside the niche)
- Rankings for the week (top growing startups, new up and coming startups etc)
and more.

I haven't sent the first newsletter yet, I have A LOT of things in the works, I'm aiming for Aug 23rd for the first edition, and it's going to be a weekly/bi-weekly thing. Going to plan it out to make it as professional as possible, indistinguishable from a newsletter that a big startup would produce.

Cheers!

Update: I am launching MakerLead on Monday August 16th on Product Hunt (a website where people can discover new startups)

This is the first time I'm doing this, but I'm really looking forward to it. After seeing so many people launching publicly etc, I finally can say I have skin in the game.

Let's see what happens!
