2014 was a pivotal year for us here at Gleam, we’ve gone from humble bootstrapped beginnings to now having a product that is reaching more than 10M users every month & growing at 20%. We’ve managed to ditch our corporate jobs, dictate how we work, what we work on, and most importantly – we’re having fun.
It’s hard to believe that we started this journey almost 6 years ago, and only now is it turning into the reality we had dreamed about. Very surreal.
Fast forward to now. I sit here contemplating writing a huge transparent post with all our metrics, but as awesome as that would be – it’s just not actionable. We’ve learned a lot in the last 12 months, whether it’s from failure, testing out a radical idea or simply just stripping something back to to bare essentials.
So instead I decided I’d share with you the top 5 things we’ve done in the last 12 months that have had the biggest impact on our growth.
