Splitting equity is a difficult but important task for startup teams. This exercise defines ownership and level of authorities.Here is our story of how we got through it.--------------------------------------------------------------Often, startup teams are made up of friends and turning that relationship into “business partners” completely changes the dynamic. It essentially puts a number on the value of contribution an individual has. And no one likes to hear their “value” is less than the expectation or another partner.But in reality, equity has little to no tangible value (unless there is capital involved). There is no customer nor revenue and any valuation tied into it is all hypothesis. Equity is paper money with perceived value and can’t be monetized, yet. It is the carrot reward that founders use to attract talents to work without pay. It is also a promise of the great return in the future for the sacrifices we have to make now. People need to buy into that vision to believe there is value in the company equity.We started Nodis.io with a hard equity split and everyone would get a set amount with no vesting or incentive to work harder. There is no motivation to do more or committing to weekly meetings. When life gets in the way, then the project goes on the back burner. I knew things had to change and I needed to come up with a different equity incentive system.After a few iterations, I came up with a creative incentive system that allows members to earn equity through actions. This new structure with points can be earned through the following objectives:Attending meetingsTaking vacation days to work on the projectCapital investmentMeeting deadline for tasks they were assignedWithout going into too much detail of the math and calculation behind these factors, everyone is working under 1 pool of share. The more 1 person does, the more share he earns, which also means that there are less equity for others to get in the same pool.This new system gave us a significant improvement in productivity. Meeting attendance and task completion rate improved dramatically. People were taking a week or more vacation to work on the project. Money was also being invested. Along with a purposed-driven mindset and a rewarding system, we were able to do more work in 4 weeks’ time than all the previous 3 months combined.The downside was that everyone had to start at a lower share %. My own equity went down 10% and I had to work my way back up even though I was the founder and provided for the majority of the capital. With the original equity structure, I would have gotten more equity when I invested an additional $8K into the project, but under the new structure, I was simply just catching up to my original share.Some may ask if that’s a fair distribution for me? My view is that equity means nothing if there are no products to offer. With the way it was going, it would have taken significantly more time (possibly with lower quality). In fact, that lack of momentum would probably have killed the project eventually. If by reducing my own equity means that we can have a serious commitment to speed up the development, then I feel it’s well worth it.However…This system isn’t without its flaw. One downside is that it didn’t encourage collaboration and the development team was racking up significantly more equity than the business side (myself). Our co-founder didn’t end up getting too many task completion points either because he was focusing on helping the rest of the team. I personally didn’t get anywhere near where I wanted to be because my tasks were meant for a much later stage in the project. The system was also adding unnecessary and unhealthy internal competition.After 2 months of steam, we just had to end the incentive system and locked everything down. But on the bright side, the core team was significantly more committed and the momentum kept on going. In fact, one of our teammate (Sean Zhao) believed in it so much that he recently quit a good permanent paying job to go full time on this project WITHOUT pay and additional equity.--------------------------------------------------------------You can see my profile for a link to join our Telegram to learn more about our Nodis.io project!Original content came from -> https://medium.com/swlh/startup-equity-splitting-vehicle-to-build-momentum-or-the-killshot-of-the-project-d12fc67e0290

Would love feedback about an idea I have been working on.In today's day and age people still buy new cars by walking to the dealership and facing all the negative issues at the dealerships.My idea is to let people haggle for the best and lowest price for their new car and get their new car delivered to them at their home. Just like carvana.com or Shift.com but for new cars. Carvana or shift don't let you haggle the price of their cars as they have single pricing.PHASE 1: Service would let users haggle car price with dealerships without disclosing their information.PHASE 2: Service would let users complete the purchase process via the website and have their new car delivered to them.The idea would be initially a web app where users would sign up, post a request to all nearby dealerships who sell new cars for the particular car make you chose to buy.Dealers would then reply with offers on the same website. Each time a dealer posts an offer which is less than other offers, all other dealerships would get notified that their offer was beat by another dealership. All dealership data is shown as anonymous and also the users data is not disclosed to any dealerships. Dealerships want to win a customer/lead in any way possible.The next step is not fully finalized but this is what I came up so far in the MVP:If a user accepts an offer, we would place a hold on the user's card for a certain amount, say $300, we would then disclose the dealership details to the user along with a unique code which they have to disclose to the dealership in order to avail the offer posted by the dealer on our website.If the user ends up purchasing the car, they have to come back to the website and upload a proof of purchase, and upon submitting, we would release the hold on their card, so the user ends up paying nothing to use our service.We would then charge the dealership a commission for the sale.NOTE: The signing of papers and delivery of the car would be implemented in phase 2 of the project like I mentioned above. Currently, in the MVP, the user would get the lowest price for the car they would want to buy and then they would have to walk in the dealership and complete the purchase.To my knowledge there was a service - CarWoo who did this till 2014 when they shut down and the founders moved to TrueCar. There is also another service Carhagg.com which is currently not operational for some reason.My vision is to let users purchase new cars for the lowest price right from the comfort of their home without having to face all the dealership gimmicks, sales person pressure etc.Do you think I should still pursue this after having a well funded business fail? In my opinion they failed because they were too early for this kind of a service? Please feel free to give any kind of feedback. I am all ears.Thanks in advance for reading this long post.

I am thinking about making a reward app that pays users for watching ads and doing stuffs using paypal maybe. But I am worried about taxes. I have 0 idea about tax for paying reward. I am tarketing US market, any advice?
I had a platform generated tens of thousands of dollars each week serving oversea audience, it was attacked by unknown source then forced to shut down. I lost my programmer, we have never met in person only on the web he went dark after the attack.It was an adult video platform, we sold video based on pay per play, on a good day a few thousand people pay around a dollar for each video they watch so the profit is great. The demand is huge and stable, scaling up is not difficult either.There's some technical details about the platform being a non programmer myself it is difficult for me to rebuild. It is a PHP website with Mysql database, the video is stored in a separate database. The concept has been proven and the money is very good. I was born in the other country so I have good connection with people there who will help us push out the new platform (they make good money for their work of course).If you are a PHP programmer who is interested relaunching and making money with me, PM me.BTW, is it an adult site so only contact me if you are OVER 18 years of age please, if you are younger than 18, comeback after a few years, I will still be here.Thank you guys.

Our story started at the beginning of the year when we got an idea to run a side project - Seodity (https://seodity.com). We were planning to make a website crawler that supports the routine work of SEO freelancers, digital agencies and website owners.We assumed that we would focus only on one feature and when we get a little bit of hype we will get cracking on other features.So that’s what we did. We launched Seodity with an On-site crawler in July 2018 and started a marketing campaign. We were running AdWords. We wrote some texts on Hackernews and Reddit. Also, we acquired 230 registered users and two paying customers.Most certainly, two customers are not too many, but we obtained extensive feedback from the Reddit community about lack of features that we decided to go all the way.Knowing that we have 230 registered users, and 2.5k unique users who visited our website within about one month, makes us think the future will be brighter.August 2018, we analyzed the mistakes we have made.I'm pretty sure that there is many more. However, here are a few:We were too focused on the SEO stuff on the previous version of our Landing Page. We made a lot of content without much sense.Our pricing was exaggerated.UX wasn't straightforward as it could have been.Too little limit of web pages to crawl.What decisions have we made to fix our mistakes?We have implemented the following new features:On-site with automatic weekly analysis,Comparison of competitors,SERP daily analysis with competitors,Uptime monitoring,Performance analysis based on Lighthouse which has automated weekly analysis.We have completely changed our pricing and crawl limits.We have tried to simplify UX and make it more user-friendly. We estimated the time of each analysis that shows to a user when it ends.We have to rebuild the landing page. We made the decision that we will focus only on simple explanation for our users about what Seodity is and how it can help.So we made a lot of real images and animations of the app with short explanatory text. We divided all of the features to separate web pages.We want Seodity to be one tool for handling all of the SEO stuff in one place.We want to get feedback again. After that, we will implement the next operations such as a blog with SEO tutorials based on the Seodity tool.What do you think about our "strategy," isn't it too risky?
Hello world,I am working on putting together the beta for http://TripFate.com and thought it might be a good idea to share the story and motivation behind it.So I met my wife exactly 4 years ago - all thanks to being on the right flight at the right time. Funny thing is, I wasn't really supposed to be on that flight to Rome. As much as I loved traveling, I was a poor college student and I couldn't really afford the expensive flights.And then it happened. I was looking for flights to random destinations after wrapping up my project report at 4 AM, and I found a round-trip ticket to Rome (from NYC) for ~$110! It was crazy because the usual prices are at least in the $350-400 range (if you're lucky).I got super hooked! After I returned from my trip, I registered on a bunch of websites to get alerts if there was a price drop. I did get some good deals, but nothing was as crazy cheap as the one I had found for my trip to Rome.I continued to manually find flights to 'random' destinations on Google flights and other websites, but it was a painful process. Plus, there was no way I could keep an eye on all these flight trackers 24x7 and create alerts for all the places that I really didn't know existed, but are AMAZING for travelers!Being a student of Computer Science, I figured there must be some way for me to automate my process of looking through multiple travel sites for amazing deals to random destinations I wanted to travel.So that's what I did. I created a service for myself that'd look for flights from across the internet that really were 'great' for their price. In the beginning, it simply sent API requests and had a bunch of if-else statements. However, over the years, I've added a bunch of Machine Learning and Deep Learning tricks to the algorithm.Moreover, I have instances of my 'smart travel finder' running on around 14 different servers around the world (who knew looking for a flight from India is cheaper sometimes!).I started getting lots of really interesting flights: ~$170 round-trip to Cancun, ~$230 to Paris, ~$340 to India... and so I decided to share it with family and friends and friends of friends. Once the list grew to over 200, I thought maybe people would be interested in paying for the service, and that's how http://TripFate.com was born.TripFate is currently in Beta - I really want to make sure people find it useful before I flip the switch and charge $20/year for the premium plan to cover the costs of the servers and allow me and my wife to dedicate more time for further development and support. If you'd like to try it, please register on http://TripFate.comThanks for reading!

Hey r/SideProject!My co-founder and I built a calendar for Stripe users to track important events related to customer subscriptions and are looking for beta testers to provide feedback.How Does It Work?Events such as upcoming payments from active subscriptions, trial expirations and subscription cancellations are color-coded and can be expanded to see details on related customers and products. We also provide email notifications for calendar events of your choice (you can set how many days out in advance to receive them).How Can I Use This?The most common use case we've seen so far is to set notifications based on upcoming trial expirations and reach out to those customers to improve conversions. Other users have configured notifications as reminders for important business actions that coincide with subscription billing dates (such as sending feedback forms).The calendar itself of course provides a day-by-day view of subscription revenue that you can take into account when budgeting and making spending decisions, especially if you're a smaller business.Sounds Cool! How Do I Sign Up?This is our last week of beta and we're looking for SAAS owners and other Stripe users to test our product and provide feedback.As an incentive, anyone who signs up during the beta will receive:50% off the paid product for 6 monthsPersonalized assistance from us to help your business make the most out of ProfitKitThe opportunity to shape our product based on the features you wantSign up for free at https://www.profitkit.io/!What Will It Cost?We're currently in beta so it's free, but we plan to launch as a paid product at the end of this week.The cost will be between $10-20/month for typical users, a $50/month plan for large Stripe accounts, and possibly a more expensive option for mega-sized Stripe accounts. All plans will come with a 2-week trial that beta testers are free to use.Thanks for reading, and hope to see some of you in our app!-Matt

After 1 full year of putting in countless hours of hard work and dedication into this, I am extremely excited to announce that Hippidy’s Beta is now officially LIVE!! We truly aim to help people make the best purchases possible.My name is Phi and I am one of the co-founders of Hippidy (https://www.shophippidy.com/), a new type of comparison shopping site. We were tired of using sites that focused on profit rather than user experience. So we sought out to change this.We first came up with the idea of Hippidy at a friendsgiving dinner in 2017. We discussed how the online shopping experience has become as stressful and overwhelming as shopping at a mall on Black Friday morning. With so much information online, it can be difficult to know where to start the shopping journey. Bouncing around sites looking for the best prices, reading customer reviews from various sources, as well as finding and reading content articles about products from trusted blogs - it’s just all too much.That’s why over the past year, we have been building a new type of shopping site - we believe we’ve completely reimagined the comparison shopping experience with the shopper in mind. We provide our users with three core features, designed to be completely user friendly - Ad-free Price Comparison, Visual Price Trends & Consolidated Product Reviews.Please let us know your thoughts or share with your friends, any type of feedback helps!
