Hey I'm BigRig, I live on the East Coast. I'm currently reading Unscripted and finally got around to creating an account here!

I read MFL in January and immediately kicked off the process of being a fastlaner. I started a project I've been debating doing for a long time. I launched it in February with a lot of interest and some people even happily paid for it! (its only $20 for the year). The project is an aggregator site of a certain product that targets a large DIY community (not sure how specific I should/can get on here). Man, I felt like I was firing on all cylinders while I was working on that.

I got tons of comments on social media like "you are a hero", "this is genius", etc. My paying members depend on it weekly. Feedback loop was running full speed. But still, not a lot paying users. So I'm assuming its just not enough value just yet. Haven't paid for any marketing and hoping I won't have to.

I took a step back to figure out how to improve the site, which I'm starting work on now.

The goal written on the wall in my office is to have 250 paying users by December.

Happy to chat more about my project if people are interested. Otherwise, I'm here to learn more from others and hopefully offer up some of the things I've learned so far.

MJ - thank you for the great books. They have scratched an itch that I've had for a while and really resonated with me. All killer no filler, man.

Welcome! Great to see you've got some validation from the market.

I'm working on a very similar kind of business for a specific niche, and am thinking of monetising in a similar way to you. Would be great to connect if you're keen!

Yeah the validation in terms of interest is there. It makes peoples lives a lot easier and saves time. But I’m just not sure how many people are willing to pay for it.

In terms of monetizing, I have a paid membership that enables a certain feature that saves even more time for the end user. I don’t have any agreements with suppliers yet because the throughput isn’t there for them to be interested. My goal is to be the #1 spot to search for these products and make the suppliers want to work with me.

I haven’t done ads yet but maybe I should.

What are you working on?
