We’re shutting down nugget

nugget-is-dead.-long-live-social-bee-1

We started nugget on a journey of 10.000 books, almost 2 years ago. We got to about 150 of those, and we now have to stop.

nugget is a great product, but a bad business.

We failed to keep you, our beloved users, engaged within the app, so our retention numbers and in turn the monetization of the app are bad.

We’re now focusing on SocialBee.io – a tool we created to get more leads from social media (initially) for nugget, that we then turned into a stand alone product.

We’ll still leave the website and the apps up, for a while.

You can read more about the decision to stop working on nugget and to focus on SocialBee here.

So what’s next?

  • If you’re looking for a nugget alternative, we highly recommend Blinkist.
  • If you’d like to have a call with me, and find out more about SocialBee, schedule a call here.
  • If you’re interested in taking nugget over (we’re looking into different options), email me at ovi [at] ovi [dot] co

Thanks for the ride,

Ovi & the nugget team.
