It took us over 3 years to go from 1 to 1,000 customers in the English market (total active customers is 8,500), but it should take us less than 6 months to go from 1,000 to 2,000 customers
(the number of signups for the free plan in the English market has increased by 60% in the last month)
After working on it for 6 months, we launched our free plan.
It offers most of the features we have for free:
(we doubled our revenue in 2018, 2019 and 2020)
Today we have:
In August systeme.io went from €165.571 to €174.039 in MRR (+5% increase)
It's a good result as the previous month we increased MRR by $7,500
Right now my goal is to increase MRR by at least €10,000 per month
Growth in the English market has been the strongest with an increase of 28% of the number of customers (up to 312, most of our customers are from the French market)
We went from 250 to 281 English speaking customers in July
(right now most of our customer base is in the French market)
It's a 12% increase in a month so it's good, but since it's such a low number it's actually not that great
What do you think of this result?
Our goal for August is to grow by 22% in the English market (to get to 343 customers)
We now have 5,000 paying customers of systeme.io
It's great considering that we passed 2,000 customers in September of 2019
It means a 150% growth in 10 months
I now manage a team of 24 persons in 6 different countries, all remote
We are gonna do $3M in revenue this year, my goal for 2021 is to do $5M (+66%)
Let's keep rocking!
When we launched systeme.io in the French market, I split tested a classic SaaS homepage against a squeeze page-style homepage (similar to the one at timedoctor.com).
The squeeze page-style homepage was converting at 14% vs. 7% for the classic SaaS homepage!
So we went ahead with the better converting landing page. However, in the English market, where we have less street credibility and less affiliates, it just wasn't working.
So we hired an agency recently, and they came up with a really nice design.
Now we have a lot more details about our features, and a much better design.
We are gonna do a lot of split testing in order to make sure it converts well
The COVD crisis gave us a huge boost as many people were looking to start an online business or sell online courses
(we grew by 50% in the last 3 months)
You know what the funny things are?
Growth is strong in the french market (5%-8% growth month-over- month). Now we are focusing more our marketing efforts on the english market. We got great feedback from users recently, saying that our tool is better than the competitors, at a fraction of the cost. Let's keep rocking!
Ok this one is a biggie..
We've passed €77k in MRR. It equals to $85k, so it's more than $1M in ARR (annual recurring revenue)
Today 99% of our customers are within the french market. Systeme.io is already number 1 in the french market so our goals for 2020 are:
The most successful startup you've never heard of
