Stats are looking good and for the first time, we crossed $10k revenue in one month.
We hope to "MRR" this in October.
We also had a lot of churns but I'm not worried.
I reached out to everyone asking them why they churned, and almost everyone told me something like this:
"Good product, but I don't need it anymore"
BTW, here is a template that works well for requesting churn feedback (75% reply rate):
Regarding the product, we launched the Google Search API: https://scrapingbee.com/api-store/google/.
And several new features to our web-scraping API, such as the ability to easily scroll on a web page.
We have also published a very nice PHP tutorial and already featured in the Symfony newsletter 😎.
We also improved our marketing website following Lianna Patch's advice.
Being part of TinySeed allowed us to have a private review of our landing page and Lianna gave us great insights Folded hands.
This month felt a bit like the end of the "Phase 1" for the 🐝.
We have managed to make the product do almost everything we wanted to do 15 mo ago.
We also deployed a content strategy, designed in January, that worked very well but we feel it's time to move on and try smth new.
We have also decided to develop a new product, built upon the
ScrapingBee core web-scraping engine but targeting people who don't know how to code.
