Reached $500 MRR + best week of subs in 2020

Monica Lent @momoko

It's been a tough year for us.

At the end of 2019, we had our first month of nearly $2k in revenue and had a ton of momentum. Conferences planned, partnerships in progress, trials in the pipeline, etc.

This pretty much stopped once COVID hit, as so many of our users are in the travel industry.

However, it looks like things are turning around (albeit slowly).

Some cool milestones this week:

  • 4 new paying subscribers
  • 1st backlink on a website I don't know about
  • 1st signup from this random link
  • 1st mention on a podcast
  • Reached $500 MRR

But also a sad one: First churned customer. Thankfully this was more about their situation (again, affected by COVID) than our product so their account is technically "paused". Still, it's our first time having a paying user cancel.

Onwards and upwards :)
