10k MRR Baby!

Whohooo!

People are paying us over 10,000 Dollars per month! What an incredible milestone.

10k MRR Hypefury

Hypefury has been around for over a year now and we've grown at a pretty decent rate. We help solopreneurs and Indiehackers like yourself to grow an audience faster on Twitter.

Our growth has been about 10% month over month. If we keep this pace for a few more years we'll be really happy campers. Still, a lot of work to do though! :)

Here are some of the learnings

For the past 12 months, we've seen steady growth in search traffic.

Search traffic

This is without 1 article we wrote though.

There was a change in the Twitter UI because of the US elections. The way you can RT has changed. We wrote an article about it because we saw lots of people talk about it.

The below graph is the same graph as above but it includes the search traffic from that article:

Search traffic

Massive!

We gained over 100 leads and lots of eyeballs on our brand and on Twitter.

The tweet referenced in the article was retweeted 130 times.

RT

The lesson?

Follow industry changes and you can rank on super high volume keywords in a matter of hours. About 6 - 12 hours after I published the article search traffic was pouring in.

It took me about 30 minutes to create the article so the ROI has been great. Here a link to the article.

You need to keep engaging your affiliates

We have hundreds of affiliates and they're an important factor in our growth. But Hypefury is not that big a deal in their lives of course. They have a ton of things on their plate and Hypefury is one of them.

That's why you need to stay top of mind. Every time I send them an email I see increased activity on their end.

I try to make it as easy as possible for them to share Hypefury by creating tweets they can quickly share. It already includes their affiliate link and can basically earn money without doing any work.

Our next goal is 15k. Hopefully, our growth continues on this path and starts to accelerate a bit more as well :)

    Amazing! I remember seeing Hypefury cross $4,000 in MRR and I was certain this was going to be a success.

    Well done to you and Samy!

    Awesome! congrats, have you been impacted with the fact twitter offers a feature to schedule tweets now?

    1. 1

      Thanks Mark! We weren't impacted at all really. I think it's a good thing that more people can now schedule tweets. We don't have to spend money on educating users. They can now look for better solutions themselves.

        Amazing, what are your user acquisition channels? are they paid or not? I'm learning how to get traffic to my site. Any tips?

    Congrats on exploiting this magic threshold: 10K MRR. Only few companies ever reach it. Our firm is on the path to reach this milestone this month too. Fingers crossed!

    Question.

    You seem to know Twitter really well. Could you elaborate a bit more on how you got going with Twitter and how you attract lots of retweets? I am so clueless!

          Thanks for your feedback Arrigo! That's very interesting.

          We're adding categories.

          Can you run me through how you use RSS feed distribution?
