Hi everyone. It's been now a full week since my official launch, and my what a ride it has been! I know the adventure is just getting started, but I wanted to put together and share some quick stats from Balsamiq's 1st week in business.
You can see a full list of anything that I run across that mentions Balsamiq here: http://del.icio.us/peldi/balsamiq_press
Here's a Summize Twitter search for Balsamiq
Some of my favorites Tweets:
alucking: Used Balsamiq's Mockup application to throw together some layouts for a web app I'm cooking up. Its pretty awesome.
geechee_girl: @balsamiq can't stop playing with your software long enough to finish my review. Love it. It's coming.... lol
doubletough: Balsamiq Mockups is a freakin' great Adobe AIR application.
ninjamonk: mocks ups is the best AIR App I have seen http://www.balsamiq.com/products/mockups/desktop I might actually buy this.
I received one complaint that both GetSatisfaction and my JIRA bugbase require registation in order to post. I wasn't aware of that and I apologize. I updated my support pages to mention that you can always email me with any feedback or bug report you might have.
Total revenue (net of Paypal fees): US$1,339.60 - this is way, way above what I expected.
See my customers page for some names of customers and do-gooders.
I am ecstatic with the amount of feedback received. This makes me think that I somehow managed to ship just at the right time in the development cycle: good enough that people like it (and some buy it), but early enough that it elicits feedback which helps with the product's future direction. That was lucky! 🙂
I'm happy about the generally positive reviews, though I was naively hoping for more coverage on Thursday (I had contacted maybe 20-25 bloggers in preparation for the launch).
In general, things are off to a good start, word of mouth is starting to happen, and I have enough work planned for the next two months (at least). I am quite amazed with the sales so far and very much looking forward to the next week, and the one after, and the one after!
I plan on releasing a 1.1 release in a month or so, with one or two of the most requested features in it, plus fixes to anything else that comes up.
You can follow my progress here via RSS or on Twitter for updates along the way - I tweet more than I blog these days, but I have a couple of blog posts in mind so stay tuned.
