Some early and not so early tales (with numbers) of SaaS businesses and some good learning when a Kickstarter didn’t go well.
Love that @adii is sharing his uncertain process in product creation after his huge success at WooThemes, even when the early numbers are ‘small’.
The CEO of baremetrics, @shpigford, gave a well-received presentation at MicroConf a couple of weeks back. This is the more digestible (written!) version.
Don’t forget that baremetric’s demo uses their own metrics, how’s that for dogfooding?
I’m a massive fan of Buffer’s open approach to business (if not their product necessarily, long story) so when @joelgascoigne found out about Baremetric’s dashboard demo (see above) Buffer did the same.
Groove have been systematically reporting on their continued growth, with a weekly blog post. In the months since they started blogging, their MRR has gone from $35k to $50k.
A great post with some collected learning from @alexmturnbull, on what writing has forced them to focus on: mostly stuff they should have been doing anyway.
And the story of an ebook Kickstarter that didn’t make it. The book is being resurrected though.
