Max Pastukhov

Marketing Software Developer

I’m not a “startup”, I’m just trying to solve the most important business problem (marketing) using my hobby (software development).

The best way to develop great products is to use them personally. It’s what I do every day: marketing in the mornings, software development in the afternoons.

I intentionally don’t delegate or outsource marketing, PR and sales. This way I get plenty of good ideas on how to organize and automate my work.

I don’t want to grow my business, so I’m not looking for investments or employees. What I’m looking for are ideas.

My Marketing Tools

Mostly free or freemium


Pastukhov Twitter Reader

Read faster, never miss important news

Unlike native Twitter viewer, my tool doesn't reorder or skip tweets. You can be sure that you actually read each and every tweet, because it marks them as read on button click, not on scroll or refresh.

It also removes all bells and whistles like stats, buttons, icons, flashing gifs/videos so you can concentrate on reading.

I'm able to read all tweets from my stream (500+ extremely active accounts) in about 30 minutes a day. This way I'm sure that I never miss even a single important event in my niche.

Marketing Note

Plan, research, keep journal, take notes and write summaries

It may look like it’s yet-another-note-taking-application, but it radically differs from all the products in this field.

The idea is simple – the tree of notes, an “outliner”. What makes it different is the core principle of editing the notes: you don’t “edit” them, you “append” to them. It feels like a chat in Skype or Facebook. And it’s convenient for marketing, because we mostly record new facts, ideas and plans, then occasionally organize and edit them.

The marketing itself isn’t a direct, start-to-end activity: we jump from one topic to another, going deeply into a particular subject, then coming back to the main line. This way a tree of append-only notes is an ideal solution. You can still edit notes as usual, but 99% of the time it’s more convenient to append. Moreover, the editor itself enables you to do single-line editing, so your can edit or delete just a single line, not touching other content.

Pastukhov Keyword Database

Huge downloadable keyword database you can use to develop tools and services

I harvest keywords and keyword data since 2005. Starting from a tiny 5-million keyword database, now I have 4,528,316,937 (4,5 billion) English keywords with the popularity/competition/PPC cost data on all popular keywords. You can use them to build your software – both internal, for private/company use or as a public service, including paid one.

It contains all niches: finance, business, blog, computer, health, art, news, reference, regional, world, science, society, shopping, sports, home, games, construction, etc. All keywords are unique, with strict filtering to maximize their overall quality.

The database comes as two compressed text files: one with all keywords (125,6 Gb, 20,6 Gb compressed), another one with all keywords that have non-zero data (9,48 Gb, 1,82 Gb compressed, 324,452,283 keywords total). Google provides data only for the most popular keywords, therefore “long tail” keywords contains no data.

The sample of such service is my online keyword database (I can give you free access to see the data in action, but my online service is based on my older database, about 1.3 billions keywords with older data).

Last data update was in May 2016, and there are the following columns in data file:

  • Google Searches per Month for USA (exact match);
  • Google Adwords Cost-per-Click for USA (Average cost per click for an individual keyword in Google AdWords.
  • Google Searches per Month for UK (exact match);
  • Google Adwords Cost-per-Click for UK (Average cost per click for an individual keyword in Google AdWords.

    There are no long-term obligations: you order them for a one-time fee without any extra costs. I update data once every 3-6 months. There are no free updates; there is a 40-60% discount from its original price (depending on the time passed since the last update).

    The price of the database depends on its expected use: if you plan to use it in your internal project that will not be public, the product cost is $1,970. If, however, you plan to build a public service (free or paid, it doesn’t matter), the product cost is $2,970.

    Please note that you will need some experience working with big databases – you should find an experienced developer before you order.

    You can pay via PayPro Global using PayPal or credit card. Please contact me at before the purchase and I will send you a payment link depending on the database license.

    I will send you the links to the files as soon as we have received the notification of your payment (from 30 minutes to 6 hours). The download links will remain available for you as long as you need them.
