Well not really a startup more like an MVP.
So while i was working from home, i had a need to transfer large files, 2GB+ to colleagues and clients. Email attachment's have a limit and other services require some sort of troublesome sign up.
So i decided to build a tool that can transfer up to 50gb of files super easy, super fast, and super secure -> tempdrive.io
Now this is not my first time starting up, and i know how difficult it is to monetize free services like these.
Dropbox, Megaupload had to reach enormous scale before they started to see a return.
I wonder if its possible to monetize a free service like this with out that scale .
Im thinking of more out the box, growth hacky ideas, like maybe using Pateron, selling merch or maybe even an honour system to fund the service? Any thoughts?
*Edit: Thanks for the encouragement! Really appreciate it, i'm looking for crazy growth hackers that are not afraid to f**k up, PM with your ideas!
