Frequently Asked Questions
Questions I'm most often asked.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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+).
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.
No. You only pay once to get lifetime access.
Sure. If you're not satisfied, shoot me an email at email@example.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).
