A few weeks ago I posted about how SongBox MRR had taken a dump down it's own trouser legs. Well it got worse than what's detailed in that post. It sank down to the low £400s.
I couldn't figure out why and I put it down to a December / January slump as most people are tight for money around this time of year.
However I got an email from one of my long term paying members who said the track uploads functionality was broken. I didn't think this could be right as I hadn't touched the app in many weeks, and DEFO hadn't touched the uploads functionality in much longer than that.
Anyway I had a look and what I found was a script I was pulling in via CDN was no longer functioning. The CDN location was no longer valid. Fuck.
So anyway I fixed it. Don't need the detail, the point is I fixed it and since then my MRR is recovering. I'm back above £500 ($680) and people are signing up and then moving on to a paid plan pretty frequently. Check this out:
All but one of those is a new customer from yesterday / today. I fixed the bug in the middle of last week. I now need to email everyone who signed up since early December and beg them to come back and give us another shot.
So I realise most people aren't as idiotic as me but the lesson here is: don't assume your app can't be broken just because you haven't changed anything 🤣
