Crossed $100 MRR

Jim Raptis @dmraptis

It looks like a small milestone but it's a huge achievement for me. I manage to x3 the MRR in almost 10 days after I removed the free tier.

Obviously, I was giving too much for free to new users and they didn't have a need to upgrade their account.

At the same time, I polished my marketing website and focused my content on the value that MagicPattern provides. It was an important step that drove conversions up.

The next step is to tweak pricing a little bit more by introducing another tier dedicated to digital agencies.

    Hey Jim, liked your lander. Would appreciate if there was a way to zoom in on the pages on the left of "Social Media Branding". They look nice, just wanted to have a closer look.

      hmm, you're right! It needs a simple image zoom on mouse hover. Thanks for the recommendation!

      Edit: Fixed it already. You can now zoom on the images 😅

    That's awesome! Interesting you tripled MRR by removing the free tier. Best of luck! Targeting agencies is a great route to go down.

      Thanks Scott. I really appreciate it!

      It's interesting indeed. Many times as founders, we undervalue our work and share too much for free.
