Featured on Lifehacker!!! 🤯🤩

Danielle Johnson @dinkydani

Last night Leave Me Alone got featured by Lifehacker!!! It was 2am and we started getting lots of sales. We thought it might still be the traffic from the Recomendo newsletter but it was from Lifehacker. This article about us was on their front page!!! 😮

We went to bed and woke up this morning to find our server had been dead for a couple of hours, nooooo!! We got it back up in seconds and everything is back to normal now. Phew!

This is absolutely huge for us. Lifehacker is a giant tech publication that we have been aspiring to be featured in for a long time. This was total luck, but we hope it will lead to more coverage from other publications! If anyone has advice on how we can further capitalise on this that would be awesome!

Some stats:

  • 14.5k article views
  • 421 website visitors
  • $152 in revenue & 29 sales in the past 24 hours
  • Almost $1,000 revenue this month 🎉
  • Almost $8,000 total revenue!

As always you can see all of our stats on our open page
