Day 31: Dashify has 20 users!

Today Dashify passed the 20 user mark!

This is exciting because I told myself that after it has 20 users, I’ll create the paid version. Dashify is now one step closer to being an actual business!

Dashify may have reached this milestone with the help of Google Ads, which I turned back on yesterday but with an affordable $1 per day limit. My thinking is that if spending $1 a day can get Dashify to 50 or a 100 users, it’s worth it.

Given the correlation between these two graphs, I’m going to say that Google Ads is responsible for brining these new users. Once again, I can’t tell for sure, but I’m not worried about those finer analytics at the moment.

What I’m going to do next:
