I’ve joined Flippa and we’re building the biggest alternative assets investor community globally
I’ve been an entrepreneur for over a decade now, and have built and sold a number of content sites and media properties, such as the Website Investing publication (post on Indiehackers) which became the investing.io community.
This year, I launched a new substack publication about alternative assets at alts.substack.com, along with a Discord community, as I wanted to discuss more than online business asset classes, such as crypto and NFTs.
I soon realized that to really have an impact with my newsletter, I needed to get it to hundreds of thousands of subscribers, even aiming for a million.
But as a bootstrapper at heart, I didn’t want to raise 7 figures of investment to spend on acquiring emails.
I was searching for a different approach when Blake Hutchinson, the CEO of Flippa, reached out. He asked whether I would be interested to continue writing the newsletter and building the community for Flippa, rather than for myself.
Would I be interested in being acquired by the number 1 marketplace for buying and selling online businesses, with by far the biggest investor community in the space?
It was an immediate yes.
I’ve joined Flippa as Director, Investor Community where I’ll be building out the biggest alternative asset investor community. It’s called Alts by Flippa.
We will be adding channels in the Discord community for investors interested in acquiring ecommerce / FBA, apps and other assets on the Flippa marketplace. And we will be adding a private area in the community where we drop online businesses before they hit the Flippa marketplace.
