Who is Signals for?

Signals reports fit like a glove to solopreneurs / small business owners / executives who want to:

  • Understand how game-changing trends are challenging today's businesses.
  • Learn what opportunities lie within.
  • Know among the first how to turn these trends into profitable businesses.
  • Stay ahead of the curve and competition.
Do you offer subscriptions?

Yes. Pro-reports are available as a continuous plan for $99/year.

What's the format of Signals Pro -reports?

As a Pro-subscriber you'll get a longer version (usually 2-3x) of the weekly report directly to your inbox.

You'll also have access to the full PDF-report library in your personal Gumroad account.

Can I buy single reports?

Yes you can.

All Pro-reports are also available as single reports priced at $15/report.

But... couldn't I find all of this info online for free?

Yes, but it's probably scattered in many places. Information is easy to get. Insights are harder. 

It takes time to read, analyze and understand. A lot of it. I spend weekly over 30 hours reading/watching/listening to dozens or hundreds of resources related to each topic. On top of that, I summarize, write and polish everything to an easily digestible report. I also regularly talk to other experts in a given field to confirm my views.

That's time and energy you'll save for running your core business and doing what you love.

Is it easy to unsubscribe/cancel?

Yes it is. If the content is no longer relevant to you, there is an unsubscribe button at the end of each email.

For cancelling the subscriptions, please follow the instructions given here or contact me.

If you're unhappy about your subscription during the first 30 days, let me know why and I'll refund you 100%.

Can I get refunded?

Where can I send feedback or questions?

In Twitter: @sarkka_timo. Or you can send an email. I'm usually quite fast to respond :-)

It's harder than ever to keep up with new business trends and tech.

Remote work, carbon neutrality, audio apps, NFTs... Sometimes it feels like there's a new big trend popping up every day!

That's why I built Signals - I wanted to save your time and find the market gaps for you. Let me do the initial research - you can focus on creating!

In the last 6 months over 2,500 founders have already joined. I'd be thrilled if you decided to give Signals a try!
