February 2021 Crossed $1k in MRR!

Since We acquired this company, we've been working on a rebuild from scratch for the front end and the back end.

In the mean time, we didn't want to slow down growth. The main growth channel has been through google ads. We get a steady amount of new (paying) users each month because of this and until we can come up with a more comprehensive growth strategy, we'll continue to pay for growth since it is a revenue positive channel for us.

  • And of those 12 are on a paid subscription
  • The average spend per user is $33

The big hairy audacious goal is to grow the MRR to $1,000 within a year. Let's see if we get there! ๐Ÿคž

October 28, 2019 First Paying User

After 4 weeks the first paying customer signed up!

The user is on the cheapest plan of $5 per month. But, it still a great accomplishment, as this proves people are willing to pay for the service.

The next steps will be to ask the user how he found me, and see if I can attract more customers.

October 1, 2019 Website Launched

After a lot of work, screenshotapi.net is now live! ๐Ÿš€

I'm a programmer by heart so designing everything was a real challenge, but I'm really happy with how it turned out!

The next steps will be marketing the service and attracting users.

Going forward!
