Sometimes all you require is a little boost. When I started building my very first online service back in 2005, I bootstrapped whatever. I would invest a couple of hundred dollars here and there to attempt and grow various concepts I
had. This method worked well, however was very slow. I invested 6 years from 2005 to 2011 doing most things myself, building out little specific niche websites, attempting to invest as little
as possible and still grow my earnings. My websites began doing well enough, that I was able to stop my task in 2011! I was a full-time business owner! Then I came up with the idea of Long Tail Pro, a keyword research tool, that I believed could be a hit! I’m not a software engineer, and the cost was
$15,000 to get the initial version off the ground. That quantity of money was a significant investment for me at the time, and I didn’t take it lightly. For a time, I thought possibly it wasn’t financially accountable for me to invest that type of money when I had a partner and family to support.
I took the threat and had the software application established.
I’m sure glad I did! Long Tail Pro was a huge hit and has actually enabled me to invest and grow a number of other companies since that time.
While I think this technique worked well in my situation, possibly there is another technique.
- What if I had had the ability to partner with somebody?
- What if I had been able to get some financing?
- Would I have had the ability to avoid those 6 “sluggish development” years and stop my task much sooner?
As I review my experiences, and as I’ve connected with other potential online entrepreneurs throughout the years, I know there are others that may gain from a small financial investment or some assistance from someone who has existed previously.
I want to give a couple of enthusiastic business owners a little increase with some financing and collaboration.
Today, I’m thrilled to announce Niche Ventures!
What is Niche Ventures?
Specific niche Ventures is a new financial investment entity I’ve created that seeks to buy lucrative service concepts in the digital marketing, SEO, or online service market.
In particular, I’m looking to purchase Saas or other concepts that target digital marketers, bloggers, affiliate online marketers, and SEOs.
I’m not looking for to purchase “moonshot” concepts. I’m not looking for to purchase concepts that intend to pay in a few years or go public.
I’m trying to find “specific niche” software application or other organizations that are either currently successful or anticipate to be lucrative as quickly as their product is introduced.
What Does Niche Ventures Bring to the Table?
The exact amount of investment dollars depends on business. However, I expect to invest anywhere from $20k to $100k per organization to help it grow.
In addition to financial investment, I can likewise provide:
- On-going recommendations, connections, and coaching. A common ongoing schedule would be 1 call per month to discuss business.
- Intros to the right individuals, affiliates, and media.
- Minimal mentions of your service on Niche Pursuits (email, social, blog site, podcast, etc). These would be restricted in nature, possibly simply a few times to assist business acquire some traction.
Overall, would not it be nice to speak with someone that has introduced items in the specific niche you are targeting that simply happens to likewise have a large audience?
What Does a Typical Partnership Look Like?
This is brand brand-new, so each deal will be custom structured.
However, the main idea is that I supply a preliminary funding amount, some limited promotion, and continuous consulting. And you run the daily operations without my involvement. You establish the item, manage the group, and perform on technique.
Depending on the deal, I may seek anywhere from a 10% to 40% equity stake in the business.
Who Should Apply?
I’m searching for ambitious business owners who think that a small financial investment and partnership will help their business grow.
The ideal company will:
- Already be profitable and have paying customers, but is looking to broaden.
- Owners have a proven performance history of previous effective businesses.
- More than happy to accomplish a successful “million” dollar idea instead of an unprofitable “billion” dollar concept.
- Want to run their organization without my participation; aside from occasional consulting.
I’m prepared to examine all candidates, even if your service is still in “concept” phase. Those companies that currently a few steps ahead are most likely to get more attention.
