Business model

 

The app is free to download, with in app purchases and subscriptions for premium content coming by end of Q1.

Glyder’s business model is positioned to disrupt small business marketing software with micro transaction pricing similar to mobile games. This model is enabled by a cost to acquire a paying user that is an order of magnitude less than industry average for SMB software.

Competitive advantage

First mobile app for Small Business Marketing. Glyder is the Constant Contact of Mobile.
