It's not for everyone
Don't use it if you...
GummySearch is not a one-size-fits all marketing engine. It's not going to work for every business, and that's OK. Our goal is to help early startups discover & acquire their initial customers, and are building a focused product to solve this exact problem.
Already have over 1000 customers
- At a certain point, you'll be able to scale other acquisition channels faster, especially if you're making revenue. Our goal is to get early-stage startups to that point with momentum.
Don't want to talk with your prospects
- Although we feel it's really important to have a pulse on your customer's pain points early on, we understand that not everyone wants to have such a direct marketing strategy.
Don't have customers in online communities
- If you are in a market where your customers don't vent about their pain points online, please let us know what industry that is!
Don't have 10 minutes a day
- We'll make it super easy for you to view & respond to high-quality posts in online communities related to your product. If you don't want to spend 10 minutes a day to connect with potential customers, this product might not be a fit for you.
