Hit 1.5K MRR for the first time!

Musharof Chowdhury @musharof

May was a great month for UIdeck , we crossed $1500 revenue for the first time. Even though I was busy with LineIcons 2.0 release and was not able to release templates on time or send newsletters.

UIdeck's MRR was always stuck in between - 800/900/1000 USD

How UIdeck get there

I was observing what are the reasons behind this sudden spike. So, I figured out (wild guess) a few points ...

1. Google Algorithm Changes: Google unveiled its core search algo update at the beginning of May, even though it has decreased the search traffic but, traffic was very much relevant. Means less but, quality traffic.

2. More focus on All-Access Pass: We started encouraging users/visitors to buy all-access pass instead of single templates and trying to influence them in the best possible way. As All-access pass price is $49/$99 it's better to get one all-access pass sell than 5 individual templates. I saw a good number of users who bought single templates earlier buying the all-access pass recently.

3. Creating Diverse Templates: Yes, it helped a lot. We are creating landing page templates for all types of businesses/niches instead of only focusing on startup, SaaS, and apps landing pages. Diverse products helped us to reach a diverse audience, this is what I realized lately.

4. Brand Visibility: Instead of only creating templates we also started creating resource and tutorial contents. So, users who have no interest to buy/download templates but, want to learn about landing page or web design related stuff will know us and consider checking out our templates in the future.

    Honestly i've seen the website of UI deck since last 1 year ago.
    I see now is 1.5k usd a month! this is amazing, but what i can see in time to come is 3x - 5x the profit.

    I would love to see more designs templates + tutorial + intergrations.
    Example: UI Deck Templates (Boostrapped) + tutorial video on how to setup + (payment gateway, e-commerce) this 2 mainly i use.

      Wow, seems like we really reached you earlier. Thanks for your appreciation and support. Yeah, it's super hard to grow exponentially for such projects but, nothing is impossible. Nice suggestions with scenario, it will literally solve a big problem. I will focus more on integrations from now on and try to create tutorials based on use cases. Thanks @fajarsiddiq ♥️🙏

    Congratulations!

    I am a bit confused by the pricing, you said $1.5K MRR, but from your site I see that the licenses sold are one-time, not recurrent. Am I missing anything?

    1. 1

      Good point, it's mixed. Please also check All access pass which is indirectly recurring and most of our revenue comes from this source.
