Long time lurker, first timer poster. Really appreciate all the content i read here. Thanks to everybody. I just posted this on /r/Entrepreneur
A little back story: I work in a restaurant in the UK. We were on Just-eat for years until we got really tired of their bullyness and extortionate amount of commission from our orders. They were making more money than us from our business. I decided to make our own website for costumers' convenience, as they've gotten used to this laziness. We decided that we need a management app to accept orders and make small amendment on the go. I have some experience with project management so I got a few freelancer devs, and provided requirements, tested and overlooked the whole project.
I started talking to people from the same field in my circle and they showed interest in it. I developed a listing app like Just-eat on a secluded local level with just a few restaurants. Its has been working flawlessly for months now. I am charging them a really low subscription fee on monthly basis without any commission or other charges. I don't have any significant user-base but with little awareness, I get enough business to make this product my worthwhile.
I started this a FUCK YOU to corporate bullshit, but now I have a tested, and working product in my hand which is proving to be helping a few other businesses too at the moment. I only closed them in because I knew them for some time now. But I really suck at selling. As I mentioned, I am the only non-dev in this accidental project. We don't have any expertise about sales, neither funding to hire anyone until it gets any substantial traction.
what do now?
As I have already established my credibility, and my individual journey as a customer of my own product, I know some bits about what to say to my prospective clients but that's about it. Any help about selling this product would be greatly appreciated. Especially about how to approach, what to take with me, and how to start.
