Songbox - finally - breaks $1000 MRR

I got my first customer for Songbox back in August 2018. Here we are, two and a bit years later and today I crossed $1000 MRR (£730).

Someone else on here posted the other day that as humans we falsely place significance on certain milestones, and they were absolutely right. Why celebrate $1000 MRR and not $977 or $1014? I guess because we ARE humans and we're wired a little bit funky. However that aside, I NEVER DREAMED I would get to this stage and it just emboldens me.

If I can get to $1000, why not $10,000??

I should add, I've been on IH for my whole journey and I've taken so much feedback and advice from folk here that I really don't know if Songbox would still be a thing if IH wasn't a thing. So thanks to you all!


Now, back to work.

    Congrats, that's awesome!

    Man, I remember some of your early posts - IH has changed a lot in that time!

    Also, only a couple days after Jordan said to stop worrying about the milestone, you hit it! haha

    1. 1

      Haha yeah I totally picked up on that too!

    Congrats, the beginning is always the hardest. Keep going!

  6. 2

    Wow, 2 years invested, that's a lot of patience...I just started my project at the beginning of the year and I already struggle with the motivation due to not being able to attract potential customers.

    But anyway, congrats! That's a significant milestone, and it makes it a lot easier to focus on the startup full time.

      Thanks. i actually don't think 2 years is a long time to get a business off the ground. Very few businesses get immediate traction. Stick with it!

    Congrats, what's your best distribution channel ?

    1. 2

      All growth is purely organic. SEO is my only channel.

      1. 7

        I wonder what exactly you are talking about. Do you have a blog or articles? I only find the article "Why I built it".

        1. 2

          Yeah... basically I don't do anything. I don't blog, I don't do social media. It's all as I said "organic".

          The only thing i did do was put a lot of time and effort into my homepage. I've been told that the copy on their is great. But that was after a LOT of refinement.

          1. 1

            This is really cool, maybe it's the main ingredient (besides the product itself).

  13. 1

    That's a great product idea. I'm not even a musician and my impulse is to say "Please, take my money!"

    1. 1

      haha that's a brilliant comment. Thanks so much!

  14. 1

    Well done! This is awesome

  15. 1
