Hit $1000 ARR after 2 weeks!

Note the A in ARR :)

I launched the first mojosaas product about 2 weeks ago: https://www.votemojo.com

Yesterday morning I received the notification from Stripe that I just signed up my 4th paying customer and have now passed $1000 in ARR. Ok ok, this is only $86 in MRR but I think that's a healthy start :) Especially considering I haven't done any real marketing yet.

My next steps are to launch product #2 which is going live next week and then to switch 90% to 100% into marketing mode, with a goal of hitting $1000 in MRR by the end of the year!

    Congrats! What is going to be your primary channel regarding marketing?

      I'm going to stick with strategies that I know and understand - so primarily I'm going to be using content marketing. I'll be writing more articles for mojosaas.com and doing more newsletters.

    Holy shit Jon, I remember one of the videos you put up years ago about digital nomads. Was one of the first things that got me thinking "I want this." Glad to hear you're still around and seeing success.

    Hey Jon. What's product #2 going to be? Related to Mojosaas?

    Congratulations! Site looks awesome.

    Can you talk a little bit about how long and what resources (people, tools and time) it took to build this? I'm starting on this journey as well, and would love to hear the choices you made. Hopefully can launch something and use votemojo :)

    Congrats. Do you build the website by yourself or use something like a template?

  15. 1

    This is cool, just what I wanted. Can I ask how did you come up with the pricing.

  16. 1

    Woohoo! Way to go.

    I love the simplicity you have achieved. Many marketing sites will lead you down a flashy useless landing page. With yours Im able to see what you offer, how its valuable to me and how it works in a glance.

    Congrats!!!

    Ambitious goal! I trust that you can do this! 💪🏽

    Literally posted this idea on here 8+ months ago and never followed through and built it. Congrats how did you differentiate yourself from competitors?

  20. 1

    Congrats!! how'd you get your first 4 paying customer? did you do some pre-launch efforts?
    TIA

      I'm blogging about my journey on mojosaas.com which now has a mailing list of over 700 subscribers. That's where the first customers have come from, as well as tweeting and participating in communities.

      Great idea! I've been thinking about developing very similar voting functionality for my website as well. Now I can use votemojo.
