If applicable, what is your growth like? And what milestones has your startup achieved so far?
We have launched the beta on Feb 14, 2018 and seeing some good early traction from small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Why did you choose this particular idea and concept to build your start-up on?
We have been working on Engagebay for the last year after struggling with using and managing multiple marketing solutions and keeping all of them in sync. Not to mention dealing with other challenges – data inconsistencies, reporting issues, integration complexities, multiple logins and interfaces, cumulative expenses of these solutions and lot more. It was just getting chaotic and out of control.
We finally decided its time to say goodbye to this model and looked out for a simple all-in-one marketing platform. We explored few options but none seemed like a good fit.
We found one solid system but unfortunately, they were unaffordable (around $10k a year). This seemed too steep for small businesses and most entrepreneurs getting started.
So we decided to create a simple, all-in-one marketing solution for small businesses and make it affordable for everyone.
Are you looking for funding or are you open to partnership opportunities, and if so, what’s the best way for people to get in contact with you?
