It seems there are so many great ideas out there in the world that I often wonder how these ideas are exposed to the right people in order to survive. When someone is just getting off the ground with a startup or a side hustle, they may not have the budget to hire help (i.e. a marketing team or a public relations team) to buy the exposure they need for success.
Hustling, networking, and word-of-mouth often help in these situations, but wouldn’t it be great to expose your idea to the exact person who could benefit from it? Transferslot agrees with this and has created an online portal where individuals can post their side project, and people interested can purchase them.
According to their website, “Transferslot is a curated marketplace where side projects founders can expose their product to our Trusted Buyer community.” Transferslot was originally created with the intention of being used for Product Hunt projects being sold, but is now open to anyone.
The user interface is simple (this is both a compliment and a critique). It’s almost like an online version of the bulletin board that used to hang in your high school with flyers for all of the clubs being offered.
The side projects are listed on the front page of the site and are organized by date (with the newest showing up first). There is then the name of the projects and a description.
Below this includes prices, arranged by: MRR, profits, and asking price. There is a green circle in the corner of each box that will indicate if a project is still available for purchase.
Transferslot allows users to join their mailing list and request access to their Trusted Buyer Program. By joining the mailing list, you will get new projects sent directly to your email inbox. And by requesting access to the Trusted Buyer Program, you will “Get prime access to incredible side projects with great potential. Uncover hidden gems before anyone else,” the company touts.
When you click for more information on each side project, it gives more detail on deals that are pending with potential buyers. There is then a contact form available for you to fill out to get in touch with the owner.
Transferslot seems like an interesting concept but is still in the early stages, given the list of side projects on the home page. However, it could be a cool place to check for investment opportunities or to sell your side project.
