First paying subscriber for Hippo: MRR $1.49 šŸ¤‘

Roel van der Kraan @RoelvanderKraan

2.5 weeks after the launch on Product Hunt I have my first Hippo user that converted into a paying subscriber after his/hers free trial! šŸ„³

No way of telling through the App Store if it's someone I know (I suspect my mom Ā šŸ˜) but there's plenty of other users (500 or so) in the pipeline. Over the next two weeks their trials will end so it's exciting to see how many will convert.

Meanwhile I'm working on marketing this week. Going to continue the launch in places where people that have a need for structured note taking are.
