💰$20,000 in sales in three months!

Hit a cool milestone today! Software Ideas has officially hit 20k in revenue after three months of business!

That revenue is broken down like so:

325 customers on the quarterly plan
3 customers on a referral plan
1 customer on a custom monthly plan (no longer a thing)

If you're curious about how I've grown the company to allow for this type of growth, check out this post, where I talk about every stage of the business so far, what I've learned, and what worked for me!

    Congratulations Kevin!

    I remember you saying at the end of July that your monthly target was getting to $10k...I said you needed to add a zero because you’d smash it and you have!

    It seems very interesting and cograts! Very nice figures especially bearing in mind you have been working on this for 3 months. However I’m a bit confused. I have subscribed to your mailing list to check out what you actually offer but I have never received an email. It causes lack of my interest as I have closed your website as I don’t know what to expect after purchasing the quarterly subscription. Perhaps it’s simply the mail chimp issue? Btw. I have received a confirmation email and I have clicked the subscribe button.

      Hey Greg,

      Yep, this is an issue we're having with Mailchimp. I'm currently working on redesigning the landing page so that the issue will be mailed to you immediately, and you will also be able to view it right away.

      I'm also moving off of Mailchimp. So many issues!

      Sorry for the hassle, you should get the email in the next 20 minutes or so, at most.

        Great! Thank you for your swift reply. Good to know that as I was thinking about using mail chimp too but now I’m more into checking out other options.

          Check out ConvertKit, they're who I am switching to!
