Reached $1000 MRR!

Charlie Clark @charlieclark

Almost exactly 4 months after landing our first paid customer, Liinks just passed $1000 MRR! Our Premium plan costs $3/month, so that corresponds to just over 330 paying customers.

Liinks has changed a fair amount in the last 4 months, as we added new features and experimented with which features to keep free, and which to require a Premium plan for.

We also introduced a 14 day free trial, which makes it possible to try out our Premium features for free.

We have done a decent amount of paid marketing on Instagram, and ramped up our activity on social media. We've tried to build relationships with our customers and be responsive when users have questions about the product.

We have a bunch of awesome new features in the pipeline, and can't wait to keep improving Liinks to make it the base bio link tool on the market!

    Really awesome to see you guys growing. I remember seeing Liinks on /r/sideprojects and thought this was great and it's been keeping me inspired for my own micro-Saas, which starts at $4/mo.

    Thanks for showing that micro-SaaS + recurring subs can reach $1k MRR and cheering for you to hit $10K MRR
