Top growth strategies from and for bootstrapped startups.

Customer acquisition is one of the hardest challenges startups face

There are hundreds of articles, tweets, and podcasts showcasing success stories. But it takes a lot of time to read and listen to all these stories and extract the main learnings. Then there is testing all these strategies and seeing which one would work for you.

  • Searching for content yourself. Unless you're an expert in this field, searching for content yourself from either Google or other websites will likely end up with you wasting time.
  • Buying a course. Good courses can be expensive and hard to find. You might think that online courses don’t fit your needs, but there are different types of courses. Some are long and complicated, and others are short and to the point. You need to find a type that suits you best.
  • Hiring marketers or agencies. Hiring a high-profile agency comes with a hefty price tag, and these agencies don't always prioritize small companies. Freelance marketers can do the same job at less expense, but these services often don't offer experience or quick turnaround times.

What you need instead is assurance that you're working on the right strategy and the right channels

I've extracted the main insights from 120+ case studies. Over 40 hours of research, listening to podcasts, and reading blogs. You'll find the most effective strategies (based on the MRR per employee) the founders are using to grow their businesses right now.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions I'm most often asked.

Who is this for? ‍

The database is most beneficial for all digital entrepreneurs, especially SaaS founders and marketers, to lay down a solid growth foundation. But the growth tactics and strategies can be adapted for any type of startup, from SaaS to Productized Services.

What's the format of the database? ‍

Airtable file - so you can easily filter all 120+ growth stories by funnel business type, main growth strategy, MRR, and MRR per employee. And no, you don't even need an Airtable account to access all these insights. When you buy the product, you get a secret link to the database. All the updates are instantly available at this link.

Why would I pay for this database if I can use read so many stories on the Internet for free?

Unless you're an expert in this field, searching for content yourself from either Google or other websites will likely end up with you wasting time. And without a growth background, you won't know what to trust.

What does the lifetime deal mean?

You will have access to The Bootstrapped Way database and all future updates on the product. It's a way to thank you for your early support and increase the value of your investment.

Why is it so expensive?

It takes a lot of time to vet and organize the actually valuable stories. That being said, if you don't think you can break even on a $49 investment, The Bootstrapped Way isn't for you. Those who give it a shot can easily take a tone of insights even from one story alone (out of 120+).

Will I get updates when new growth strategies get added?

Yes. This database is constantly updated, and you'll be notified by email as each new growth story gets added. Usually, 4-5 stories a month, as quality is way more important to me than quantity.

Do you charge anything else beyond a one-time payment?

No. You only pay once to get lifetime access.

Can I refund my money?

Sure. If you're not satisfied, shoot me an email at daniel@thebootstrappedway.com within 24 hours. You'll get your money back. No questions asked (but please, let me know what you didn't like about it since I'm committed to making this database as useful as possible).

Do you have more questions?

No worries! DM me via Twitter @dpirciu or email me at daniel@thebootstrappedway.com. Always happy to help. Looking forward to hearing from you.
