The following is only my opinion of what is possible, and is not to be taken as fact. Investing in startups is risky and you should review your risk profile and consult and investment advisor before considering any investment.
Everyone knows that "tech" companies grow the fastest out of all types of industries...but what "kind" of tech companies?
How do we compare one tech company investment with another?
Well, here is how I perceive it to be broken down, and I will do so by explaining what kind of company Go Fish Marketplace is...
Out of all types of "tech" companies, it is said that "online" companies (software/cloud based) grow the fastest. This is the case because of several reasons, one being that the brunt of the operations of the company is done via 1's and 0's inside the cloud, inside computer servers, and less moving parts means lower costs, which means more bottom line to re-invest into growth. It also means that the entire process of a customer signing up to becoming revenue generating is totally automated via the computer software.
...And out of all online companies it is said that "Marketplaces" grow the fastest, for several reasons, mostly because of what is called "the network effect" which is the effect of having one user having the capacity of influencing the propensity of other users signing up, therefore the more users you have, the faster user signup will occur and thus the growth of the site.
...And out of all types of "Marketplaces" it is said that "eCommerce Marketplaces" grow the fastest. Again, because of the Network Effect. In this case, because various different vendors can sign up as well as customers, and in Go Fish's case, various different independent sales reps as well because we have a three-prong-marketplace.
So Go Fish Marketplace is an "ecommerce marketplace online tech company." Is there anything that would help its business model grow any faster?...Ah, how about the viral aspect of the business model? On Go Fish Marketplace Merchants and Sales Reps can recruit other Sales Reps so one can recruit 5 and those 5 can recruit 5 of their own and then those 25 can recruit 5 of their own...ect, and it is designed to grow virally.
Is there anything else on top of that? Yes...On top of that each and every individual user can use their own viral social media to promote their Go Fish store and recruit others to join the platform, sort of like viral x viral, so viral squared.
This is one of the reasons why we are so exited about Go Fish's future. But we are most exited that we will be helping many, many people develop a source of income that many of them desperately need.
