First round of free trials over: 7% conversion

Jen @lunchbag

Since my Hacker News launch 2 months ago, the huge wave of 45-day trials and trial extensions is over. What a crazy period of time. I went from basically no users to 1000 users the next day and it's been a 2 month marathon (felt more like a sprint though) of developing new features, automating processes and talking to lots of users. In the end, I'm seeing a conversion rate of just over 6% which I'm pretty happy with!

I feel like I can breathe again for a bit.
