Got our first Paying customer 🥳! AMA!

Yaaayyyy!! We got our first paying customer at Basch.ml ! And we haven't released it in public yet (We are still in Beta)!

Our First $350 ARR!

A man approached us on LinkedIn and said that he wanted to use our product. We agreed and now we have our first paying customer!

Lesson: Shamelessly promote yourself, you never know where the next opportunity lies!

    0 to 10, how happy are you right now (24 hours later)? :D

    The product looks amazing!

      Thank you so much dudee 😄

  3. 2

    Is it home grown algo?
    What machine do you use to train algo?

    1. 1

      Let me call our tech prodigy, @digvijay to answer this ;)

    Do you recommend LinkedIn to find your first client? How do you see it?

    1. 1

      Not stick to a specific channel! Go where your audience is!

      Use this perspective:
      Your product solves a problem and provides value to people. Your aim is to figure out where these people are and genuinely try to provide them value!

        Yeah I see what you mean. Is there a book or a person who most influences you on the way you are thinking on how to create your product?

        1. 1

          Not one, there are many! I learn from a lot of places, experiment with them and formulate my own techniques.
          Recently I have started writing about my experiences on Virajchhajed.com, I think youy might find it insightful :)

          1. 1

            Thank you for also sharing your failures in your website. This help us a lot

            1. 1

              thank you soo much! This motivates me to keep writing about my experiences :)

    Congrats! That's one of the most exciting milestones!

    Your product looks amazing too btw. I'm thinking of using it to have Elon Musk start endorsing my product!

    1. 1

      Haha, Elon won't. that was just for fun xD

  6. 2

    Congrats! Do keep sharing your milestones with us :)

    1. 1

      Thanks! Sure, Will do :)

  7. 2

    Congrats! How big is the team and are you funded or bootstrapped?

    1. 1

      We are just 4 co-founders as of now. We have some VC offers that we are considering in the upcoming 2-3 months but right now we are bootstrapped.

      1. 1

        Nice! So I guess at least one of you is a ML engineer then. I'm curious is this using a Python ML framework or a cloud service or...?

        1. 1

          Yep @digvijay is our tech guy
          He is a prodigy ;)

    Congratulations! And your product looks really interesting.

    1. 2

      Thank you so much! 😊

    Congrats on the milestone! I am wondering what channels do you use except from LinkedIn?
    I saw you're having also a freemium model. Is the pro model the only way of monetizing basch.ml ?

    1. 1

      We are currently in Beta and focusing more on the product right now. This was more of an unexpected sale.

      But we are planning to go content-heavy now because our product is Awe-worthy!
      And yes as of now, the premium model is the only way to monetize it!

  10. 2

    Congrats!

    Text-to-speech is such a huge thing these days, I see it everywhere.

    I can picture an API would be very popular.

    1. 2

      Yep, indeed.

      But we go a step further! We do Text-to-Video!

  11. 2

    This idea is awesome man!

    1. 1

      Haha, thank you, dude!

  12. 2

    You promise a bold feature. Great product. Do you have a video presentation of your ML output?

    1. 1

      We made our own video using it! Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9meQUIySBc
