We made it past 50K email subscribers! 🥳
After starting this project from scratch in April 2019, 51K people now subscribe to our weekly newsletter: Exploding Topics Tuesday.
(This only goes back to November since we moved over from Mailchimp to Aweber then.)
How did we get here? Here’s a rough breakdown:

Our Twitter account seems to be taking off (good source of virality?)
Blog content targeting long-tail keywords

It still blows my mind how many people are subscribed and how fast it has grown. A year ago, none of this would have seemed remotely realistic. 🤯
And yet now, my co-founders Brian, Kyle and I are shooting for 100K subscribers by the end of 2020.
So I hope this helps show fellow Indiehackers how quickly your thing can snowball if you keep on it.
I know I left out A LOT of details. So any questions on specifics, just let me know in the comments. 👋
