  • May was another solid month for markets and for the Marketplace.
  • Market outlook services continue to garner attention, but this month's list shows off the stylistic diversity of the Marketplace.
  • We also update on some platform level news as we have an exciting milestone to share.

Sell in May, go away? Well, the markets grinded higher through the month as they strove to go back to a pre-COVID 19 normal. That reverberated through the Marketplace, which saw a pullback in growth compared to the March/April spike, but is still chugging along at a very solid clip.

We're sharing our usual fastest climbers list to highlight services that stood out with readers over the past month. But given the increasing interest and awareness of the individual writer subscription model and the news we announced today, we wanted to share some updated stats of where the Marketplace stands before we get to the climbers.

As of June 1st, the Marketplace has:

  • Two services with over $1M in gross ARR (annual recurring revenue), with congratulations to Avi Gilburt, author of our 2nd 7-figure service.
  • Another five services with over $500K in gross ARR, and five more with over $325K in gross ARR.
  • 15 additional services with over $100K in gross ARR, 17 with over $48K in gross ARR, and 47 with over $12K in gross ARR.
  • Five services with over 1000 paying subscribers, another seven with over 500 subscribers, and 36 more with over 100 subscribers.

The markets are working towards normal, though given the broader world and economy beyond them, there may be more bumps in the road ahead. We hope readers will continue to find Marketplace authors' guidance valuable in navigating those bumps.

Without further ado, here's our list of fastest climbers for May, as ranked by net increase in recurring revenue for the last 28 days of the month.

Service Name Author name
1 Value Investor's Edge J Mintzmyer

Excellent data and good to know. Thanks for the relevant info and congrats to all!
Rather than listing the authors by revenue generated to you and for the authors, I think I speak for all of us that we would be more interested in the performance rankings of the authors adjusted for risk, of course.

Thanks for the message, @LetsBond. I hear you; that's a challenging ranking to compile especially given appropriate adjustments for risk or whatever else. We may get to it in the future.

We do feel there's real significance in ranking based on where readers are voting with their dollars, though, and fits in our crowdsourced approach. It's also motivational for our authors as a group.

Thanks again for commenting.
