Ann Arbor's Published Daily boot straps for growth

The seven people behind Published Daily aren't just trying to make noise with their fledgling start-up. They're trying to make relevant noise.

Published Daily offers a customizable service to create online magazines, newsletters, and marketing service that costs about $1 a day. This will help their customers relay relevant information in a timely manner in a world filled with too much information. The idea is to help professionals generate more referral business.

"Every other service we’ve seen is focused on just content, or just newsletter templates, and the users are forced to spend more time and money in order to get their desired result," says Gibran Nicholas, chairman of Published Daily.

The seven member staff (there is also one intern) all have an equal share in the company. This self-funding allowed the company to get off the ground and move forward without things like angel investors or venture capital.

The firm hopes to take in $500,000-$1 million in revenue this year.
