Thank you for being interested to learn more about The Founders Bundle.
If you have been working on your own company, side project, all the way to being a-part of a startup, you have likely noticed the ever-growing amount of tools you are using.
I personally find it interesting, it is definitely better than one company doing everything for us. It also gives them the chance to really focus on certain pain points. However, it is not always practical to manage. All the bills are coming in on different days, some are still trying to trick you with unstable bills, different account logins, etc. This is often an unnecessary distraction and tends to make the accounting much more complicated than it needs to be.
After looking into this problem a bit, I noticed different kinds of bundles. Some offered lifetime deals which are neat but you also want to make sure the tools you are paying are getting recurring revenue for them to stick around and improve. Then, I found others offering discounts only which is not bad but it was still not what I was hoping for.
What I believed would be the most useful, and sustainable for everyone involved would be a subscription model that includes numerous tools within that subscription, at no additional cost.
I decided to email back and forth with companies about potentially joining a bundle. After getting on many calls and digging into the details we realized it would be a bit time consuming, and hard to get everyone involved within the paid subscription.
Instead, we believe it is better to slowly grow the list based on what is suggested by the subscribers. The subscription will currently include 4 partners (GetResponse, HelpCrunch, Vectera and Qlearly) and credits towards 1Password, Twist and many others.
Additionally, we wanted to give discounts for many other great tools we believe a high percentage of our subscribers could really benefit from. By potentially getting your feedback on the tools you use the most or are likely to use the most, we could see which tools should really be included within the subscription. All of this and more is what we are hoping to learn during this beta, which is currently limited at 500 subscribers.
This is also why we are holding off just a bit on building a backend for your account and our own payment system. We will have this ready by April 2020. As of now, we will be using Paddle to manage the subscriptions. The codes will be emailed to you 15 minutes after the checkout.
Some may call this a beta, others an MVP. However, something I have learned is if someone is willing to go through a bit of an unfamiliar process to access what you are offering, it is a good way to tell if you have something good on your hands.
Thank you again for willing to learn more about our beta. We hope this is something you will find helpful. If you have any suggestions to help us improve, I would love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
