Shared our story with the IH community

Overhaul of CozyCal's look

We made some major changes to CozyCal's look and added Stripe integration, and our users are loving it.

Our acquisition channel is still limited to CozyCal's WordPress directory. We find that marketing a product could be much harder than building one.

Crawling out from a zero growth period

First customer converted after nearly 4 months of 'dry-spell'. Many trial and error. A lesson well-learned is that increasing the pricing before offering concrete product value is a dangerous move.

Installed Intercom and it is magical. We can chat with our customers in real-time and understand their needs better. Now we respond to our users' Intercom messages faster than we reply each other's text messages.

Kat and Chris join Launch Academy

Joining Launch Academy's three-month startup program and meet up with Vancouver's local bootstrappers.

We both conducted customer interviews to better understand their business needs for scheduling.

Kat and Chris start working full time

Dreaming of making it on their own Chris and Kat embark on the journey of bootstrapping. AKA, losing precious savings ever so slowly.

As a software developer, Chris's focus is on the technical side of CozyCal. Most of his time is spent on coding new features, fixing bugs and improving the efficiency of the underlying 'infrastructure' of CozyCal.

Kat, on the other hand, focus on the non-technical side of CozyCal, spending most of her collecting feedback from users, building the website, and finding new leads.
