Yes, We Are Giving You This For Free!
Yes, we've been where you sit. Pondering how many thousands of people will use our marketplace in the first year and beyond. Looking at Amazon or the potential market share, I think we'd get at least 5% of the market because we will blow up and become a unicorn within five years. Then we get investment, and they ask what projections we had, and we show them what we conjured based on our best-educated guess. Unfortunately, we got held to those numbers for the first four years, which were missed monthly. There must be a better way.
The entire spreadsheet is driven by your website traffic monthly growth and controlled by conversion variables.
We have already built benchmarks for you based on our tangible experiences building a $20M marketplace.
We learned that you cannot have overly conservative numbers but also impossible to meet is just as bad. Needs to meet in the middle.
The results in the sheet are simply a guide, and they can be tweaked over time as actual numbers pour in.
This is designed for educating Flounders (First-time, Non-Technical Founders) who are ready to embark on their maiden voyage.
Ensure you only use the Variables tab to control the sheet and read the readMe tab when you receive your free copy.
These numbers are meant to help enhance your story when you pitch your Aha Marketplace to people or potential investors.
