I'm developping a web application in my free time and i'm planning to sell it to companies, starting with the company in which i'm working for as Web developer.
One of the biggest advantages of this application is that it can suit companies in different activity sectors, as long as users use computers to work with.
I estimate the workload to be 3 to 6 months depending on how many functionnality i want to include.
Now, I'm afraid that when the time comes to propose it to my employer, it makes fun of me because it's not worth selling, I'm afraid they find it basic and minimalist to be sold.
The business model i'm planning to go for, is charging a fee monthly by each user using the application, something like :
- 1 to 100 : 10$ per user monthly
- 101 to 500 : 7$ per user monthly
- 501 to 2000 : 5 $ per user montly
I would like to know which criteria my web application should contain to be able to sell it like that ? Would company managers fin the pricing logical compared to the workload of 3 to 6 months ?
I know i can lie about it and say it took me 2 years to make it .. but that's not how i imagine starting things, i prefer honesty.
