Term of existence, brief history, main stages of business development
In its current form and with the current domain, the project was opened in 2014, since then the turnover has been growing every year. Each year, new functions and updates were introduced to enhance competitive advantage over competitors. The service has unique functions, a system for stimulating performers to work.

A self-written engine in PHP + MySQL + JS + Smarty, a web server on Nginx + PHP-FPM. It uses several third-party libraries in PHP.
How much money and time did you invest in creating a business?
$8 for the domain and $73 for the first server, everything else is just my time as a programmer and administrator for 4 years, the referral and partner system allows the project to grow without independent advertising campaigns
Are there full-time employees in the business? How many of them and what exactly do they do?
0 employees, I replace all (programmer, administrator)
What operations are outsourced and what are the costs for this? How many freelance professionals are involved and are they ready to continue working with the new owner?
On the site there are users of volunteers with the status of "Assistant" (7 people), they are engaged in basic functions of moderation of the project for free.
Are there any geographical limitations inherent in business? From which countries / cities can you do business? From what city do you conduct business?
No geographical restrictions for the owner, I conduct business from a small regional town.
How to develop a business after purchase? What should I do first and what should I look for?
First of all, further automation of advertising campaigns for customers, and expansion of the scope of the system (new types of assignments, new social networks). It is possible to translate the site into English, or the languages of the CIS countries
Describe the strengths and weaknesses of business
First of all, further automation of advertising campaigns for customers, and expansion of the scope of the system (new types of assignments, new social networks). Possible translation of the SaaSilnye: offers the largest set of functions among similar projects for both customers and executors, low costs of technical support, properly configured and delivered work requires only administration (on the site itself), great growth prospects both in the breadth of the range of services and in the number clients (now only CIS in Russian). Weak: if it stops in the development of the project and its further development, then it is possible to quickly lose positions (for 1-2 years), perhaps the owner should be an expert or have an employee whom he fully trusts, because practically all control over the project is concentrated in the hands of such a specialist. to English, or the languages of the CIS countries
Does the business have risks in the form of forthcoming changes in legislation, increased competition, increased costs?
I can not even imagine the last innovation of the "online cash register", I already applied, it works fine, the annual expenses went out small.
Does seasonality affect business revenue? How?
Virtually does not affect, in the seasons of holidays a slight decline, during this period I launch activity contests for users.
Who are your competitors? What are your advantages over them? Evaluate the main business indicators in comparison with competitors.
Other exchanges of assignments and visits, competitors by volume in the Russian Federation are only a few (about 5 pcs.). The main thing is the annual updates of the project, which competitors either do not do, or do in a very limited number, customers go where their ideas and needs are realized.
Does the business have registered trademarks, licenses or patents?
No
What kind of feedback do business customers usually leave? Give an example or provide a link to a review.
I think the best tip is an increase in turnover, for 2018 about 2 times. The reviews are not welcome, because they want to remain confidential.
