A few months ago SaaS Mantra reached out to us and offered to promote Brick on their site. The idea is: they sell lifetime subscriptions to Brick (with a huge discount) and take a cut of the profits. You can see how the sale looks here.
This is turning out super well. Like completely unexpectedly well.
The sale has been live for two days and we've already made more money than in the entire existence of Brick.
We suddenly got a ton of new users with new interesting ideas about how Brick could be used (e.g. as a headless CMS).
When preparing for the sale, we had to implement a few cool features (e.g. collaborative workspaces and sign-up by email) that we would likely have spent a longer time implementing otherwise.
We were also motivated to write a roadmap, start a knowledge base, etc.
I think so far this has been the best thing to happen to Brick, much better than reaching the top page of Hacker News a year ago.
Viva la SaaS Mantra!
