Hello, I am launching a start-up on a low budget. Do you recommend using an open source/home-grown or paid affiliate tracking software? If either, which specific one do you recommend? For background, our website is BoatTests101.com and our beta site is beta.boattests101.com. We will be an accredited online boat license provider in Florida in the new year. Ideally, I would prefer a solution with no fixed monthly fee and instead be variable cost-based, so I can make sure the MVP works. Thanks, Brian
I would use pay-as-you-go model which lets me scale as and when required and pay accordingly.
The traditional problem with Home grown software is you can't accurately predict the growth when you open the floodgates. So choosing a pay-as-you-go model works perfectly here.
The other constraint I see with Open source software is most of the them expect a experienced user and clearly lack an established support system which you can get in a paid software.
I would be more helpful if I understand the details in depth and happy to discuss that over a call.
