I am an independent software developer who's principals involve creating apps and software that is free for their users. Though I am fully aware that I could slap an expensive price tag on my products and get affiliate marketers to earn commission for marketing my brand, it goes against my beliefs that certain types of software should be free.
My first launched application is a dating website, at www.bluecherub.com, which I launched in February of 2016. The next phase for this application is building Windows 10 and mobile apps, which I am currently working on.
To me, a dating app is a social app, and social apps should be free. So my business model for this website, and thus my current business is to raise money through donations, crowd funding, and banner advertising.
And this is why I am here. To ask for your help in funding my business so I can purchase needed computer equipment for building and testing my applications, as well as fund advertisements to drive traffic to my websites.
