5 Notification Tool Success Stories [2023]
Start A Notification Tool

Here are some real life success stories of starting a notification tool:

1. Sunnah Helper ($12/year)

Mammad (from Baku) started Sunnah Helper over 2 years ago.

$1 / month
1 founders / 1 employees

Case Study

Salam aleykum, my name is Mammad. I have 10+ years of experience in the IT industry and currently, I am a full-time software engineer. My favorite tools are Python (for backend and automation), PHP/Javascript (web development), and Flutter (mobile development). I love them because they are easy to learn and once you have an idea you can quickly implement and realize it and focus mostly on the idea rather than the technology and implementation details. Being a software engineer, I like to automate things and apply technology in daily life whenever possible.

From a business point of view, Sunnah Helper uses the AdMob platform for monetization. Users could view ads to use the premium features. Also, there is a one-time premium purchase for unlocking all the premium features and disabling ads.

4. Fomo ($1.08M/year)

Ryan Kulp (from Austin, TX, USA) started Fomo almost 7 years ago.

$90K / month
2 founders / 5 employees

Case Study

I’m Ryan Kulp, a marketer and long-time musician turned self-taught developer and micro PE fund manager. I grew up in Atlanta and then lived in NYC and San Francisco for 8 years after finishing school. Throughout this time I worked for a bunch of venture-backed tech startups, learning what to do and more importantly what NOT to do in a founder or management role. I also started and failed a couple of startups, using a mix of personal and “friends and family” funds but losing it all.

Nowadays our revenue is > $1mm annually and last month we were acquired by Relay Commerce.
