Sold Thankbox #200. Have made $600 in November!

Valentin Hinov @ValCanBuild

Christmas arrived in November for me and Thankbox. The month has been absolutely crazy in terms of milestone after milestone being smashed.

I know things will start settling down a bit in December and the growth won't be as crazy, but I wanted to take the opportunity to ride my high and share how long it took me to get to 200 sold Thankboxes.

I never knew how exponential growth felt like until I started modeling Thankbox sales in increments of 50.

1st thankbox sold: 05/05/2020
50th thankbox sold: 28/08/2020
100th thankbox sold: 23/10/2020
150th thankbox sold: 12/11/2020
200th thankbox sold: 24/11/2020

From 1->50: 116 days
From 50->100: 57 days
From 100->150: 20 days
From 150->200: 12 days 🔥

I've mentioned in earlier milestones that Thankbox is suited heavily on networking effects. Since I've had search ads running for about a month now I've already started seeing the networking effects compound. People who received a Thankbox or left a message on one end up making one of their own just weeks after. It's awesome!

I'm now working on better KPI modelling so that I can more precisely track these networking effects.

      Haha yeah - already experiencing some growing pains but that's a good problem to have I guess!

    Big congrats to you!
    I've been following and reading Thankbox's story for a while now. I discovered it a few months ago, I thought it's a good idea.

    And I liked how open you were about the stack you used (especially because I use Laravel as well).
    Anyway, nice job!

      Thanks ❤️ - yeah I've really tried to embrace being open about it as I find it helps me reflect on the journey a lot more.

      Laravel is awesome, isn't it! It's been my introduction to fullstack development and I love it.
