Start A Meme Based Product

Here are some real life success stories of starting a meme-based product:

1. The Nut Button ($162K/year)

James Reina + Davis Harari (from New York, USA) started The Nut Button over 5 years ago.

2 founders / 0 employees
New York, USA

Case Study

We’re Davis Harari and James Reina and we’re the co-founders of The Nut Button.

We know that this is a “dumb” product - however, our approach to the company is anything but. We’re currently operating at a 65% profit margin and are on pace to do a little over $200,000 in sales in 2019, 75% of which is passively through Amazon FBA.


2. Blerp ($240K/year)

Derek Omori (from Salt Lake City, UT, USA) started *Blerp * about 4 years ago.

$20K / month
3 founders / 12 employees

Case Study

My name is Aaron Hsu. I started Blerp in my junior year of college after I made the viral Shia Lebouf soundboard app. In the first few weeks after launch, we had over 100K downloads. It was at that moment I realized there was an opportunity to make a full sound sharing platform instead of downloading one off soundboard apps at a time.

Blerp takes a small cut of soundpack sales. We’re excited about bringing more ways for creators to monetize their brand and their most iconic moments.
