Hi again folks,
Another week, another issue!
I finally had time to wrap up the second installment of the $0 Subscription Startup Stack series. I meant for the second part to cover sales and marketing, but just writing the sales part it’s already longer than the first installment, so this will now be a 4-part series, not a 3-part one, and the next one will discuss no-subscription tools for marketing. I hope you read and enjoy!
Below are the results of last week’s one-click survey. Looks like a large majority of the community are mostly busy making money either on the inbound or outbound side. Me, I’m one of the outliers mostly doing customer support lately, but that’s because of the Appsumo thing which is dying down now.
We have fewer answers this time than for the first couple of surveys so I’ll lay off for a couple of weeks on the surveys and then hit you with something so incredibly exciting you won’t be able to resist answering.

Nobody's writing! (Neither was I... 😭 but last night I did 🤓)

That's it for this issue
Last weekend, my spouse and I took a long weekend break to drive the ring road around Iceland (and then some - about 1600 km / 1000 miles in total) to see the sights and camp four nights in our car (who doesn’t want that?). It was a fantastic trip.
An idea we had as we were doing all of that driving was: Why isn’t there an interactive location-based guidebook app for our phones that could tell us about interesting stuff as we drove past it, and that could possibly even answer questions related to the sights around us. Anybody know of some startups building something like that?
Thanks for reading. Until next week!
If you need to find solid freelance software developers, designers or finance experts and you don’t want to waste time taking chances, I’d recommend taking a look at Toptal.
