The main accomplishments
Cronhub has become profitable
Last month Cronhub hit the first milestone that I’ve set for myself from the day of the launch. My side-project is now a profitable side-business. This means that monthly recurring revenue covers the cost of all the monthly expenses that are required to maintain Cronhub.
Launched “Business” plan
I’ve launched the “Business” ($49/m) plan with team members support. This means that I can start targeting businesses and developer teams so they can collaborate on Cronhub to monitor their cron jobs. Along with this plan, I’ve launched the “Startup” ($19/m) plan for small teams and startups.
First “Business” customer
One of my “Developer” plan customers converted to “Business”. Now with the team member support, his team can collaborate on a shared dashboard and monitor more cron jobs.
First yearly customer
I’ve changed the pricing this month and before making the change Cronhub had only 2 plans, “Free” and “Developer” ($7/m). Last month, I had the first customer upgrading to the yearly plan and it was a such a great feeling to receive that Stripe notification.
